Severe Weather of June 16th

Strong June sunshine and a strong cold front combined to create showers and thunderstroms on Monday, June 16th, 2008. The conditions were favorable for hail and wind gusts. A few supercell storms formed, and most of those produced large hail. A few wind damage reports have been received, with the most from a long-duration bow echo that moved southeastward through Mifflin and Juniata counties. Many locations received two or three thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. The cold front was the leading edge of much cooler and drier air that was a significant pattern change from the abnormally warm (hot) first half of June.
