Episode Narrative Increasing shear in the warm sector ahead of a cold front helped focus and sustain damaging winds in long-lived linear thunderstorms. After producing large hail and damaging winds in New Hampshire earlier in the afternoon, storms progressed eastward into Maine later in the afternoon and evening.
Event Narrative A severe thunderstorm downed a tree and numerous large branches, a dog house was lifted and thrown, and the end of a dock was destroyed in Smithfield.
