Speaker Notes:

100 mb mixed layer CAPE values over 2000 J/kg were located across southern and eastern Pennsylvania at 15z on the 3rd, with values from 1000 to 1500 J/kg across southern New York. 0-3 km shear values were 30 to 35 kts across central New York, and 15 to 20 kts across Pennsylvania. So, this was a case were the most instability would be across Pennsylvania, with less instability but more shear across central New York.
