Episode Narrative A cold front was pushing southeast across the forecast area through a very warm and humid environment during the afternoon of June 22nd. The collision of the front with the sea breeze added lift and provided the focus for the severe convection to form generally along the I-95 corridor from Waterville to Gray. Storm environment was characterized by temperatures in the low 90s and dewpoints near 70 (as high as 72 in Waterville). Wind shear aloft was sufficient to support some storm organization, but too weak for sustained supercells.
Event Narrative A severe thunderstorm downed trees all over Fairfield.
