Episode Narrative An upper level impulse triggered an area of strong to severe thunderstorms along a stationary front situated just west of the Tri-State area.
Event Narrative The National Weather Service in New York, NY confirmed an EF0 tornado with maximum winds of 80 mph in the towns of Greenwich and Stamford in Fairfield County Connecticut. The tornado touched down in the town of Greenwich on North Street just north of the Merritt Parkway. It continued east-northeast into the town of Stamford and lifted on Janes Lane approximately a half mile west of Scofieldtown Road.
Extensive tree damage was observed along the tornado path starting on Taconic Road and continuing onto Skyridge Road. The most significant tree damage was observed just south of the intersection of Stag Lane and Stanwich Road, where numerous large trees and power lines were downed. Tree damage continued on Carrington Drive and at the Mead House Farm. It reached its maximum width of 150 yards along River Bank Rd. immediately east of Newman Mills Park. The only structural damage was also reported at this point with the door to a barn being blown off. The tornado started to weaken as it moved into the town of Stamford just south of Web Hills Road and Lynam Road. Trees were last noted down at the far western end of Janes Lane.
No fatalities or injuries were reported.
