A severe thunderstorm developed along a weak convergent boundary during the early evening hours on August 13th six miles north of Johnstown. The atmosphere was unstable, though atmospheric shear was relatively weak. Because of this, the tornado was very brief and weak in nature. The tornado touched down and lifted immediately thereafter. No damage was reported with the tornado as it occurred in an open field. The tornado touchdown was observed by law enforcement.
