Look Back: Severe Weather Event In New York State, Connecticut
On Monday, the National Weather Service New York highlighted a very "unusual late season severe weather event" that occurred two years ago.
On Nov. 13, 2021, nine tornadoes touched down in the National Weather Service New York's coverage area. Six in New York State and three in neighboring Connecticut.
"On this date two years ago, a cold frontal passage produced an unusual late season severe weather event across the area, including 9 tornadoes, 3 in southern Connecticut and 6 on Long Island," the National Weather Service wrote on Facebook.
Reason For 9 Tornadoes
The National Weather Service provided this reason for the very unusual late-season severe weather event.
A secondary cold front associated with a strong shortwave trough embedded in a large low-pressure system over southeast Canada and the Great Lakes region moved through the area.
