Severe Weather of 12 June 2007
Storms from the Northeast

A cluster of thunderstorms fired up in the afternoon heating over New York, New Jersey and Northeastern PA. These storms then moved into Central PA - from the northeast.

This storm movement was very unusual - as our predominant/usual flow pattern over Central PA makes most storms move in from the west or south or even sometimes northwest. But, northeast to southwest thunderstorm motions are rare in Central PA.
