Severe Thunderstorm Outbreak
June 10, 2008

June 10th was the fourth consecutive day with highs of 90+ degrees across the region. An upper level short wave moved across the area during the morning hours producing severe thunderstorms across the western Adirondacks. There was a pause in thunderstorm activity across the region, then as a cold front approached and swept across the area during the late afternoon and evening hours triggering severe thunderstorms ahead and along the boundary. Conditions were ripe for severe weather, the Storm Prediction Center had a "moderate risk" for severe thunderstorms outlined for the area. In fact, a tornado watch box was even issued for the local area.
