A brief tornado hit the Wilton, New York area in Saratoga County during the evening of May 15, 2020. The tornado touched down near the intersection of Nichols Road and Woodard Road and tracked east for around two miles before lifting at the intersection of Wilton-Gansevoort Road and Blanchard Road. The path was nearly continuous with several softwood trees snapped and uprooted (some onto houses), and street signs blown down and displaced. Also, part of the sheathing of a warehouse roof was peeled off and landed on a  van, and an empty trailer was blown on top of a van.
