Figure 1 depicts the surface observations at 8:00 am EDT, which shows a large area of high pressure across the Midwest United States and a low pressure on the east coast with a stationary front extending into the ocean. The stationary front likely triggered thunderstorms to its north, across Massachusetts, which ultimately led to this tornado.
