On 7/23/19 there were four tornado reports from at least two separate confirmed tornados in Yarmouth / Cape Cod Storm Prediction Center 20190723's Storm Reports

Just a sliver of the coast was included even in the *general* thunderstorm outlook

Reflectivity had a distinctive supercell shape and the base velocity image looks pretty decent if not all that “tight” - especially for that region (obtained from RadarScope archive from around the time of the first report)

Pretty amazing video of the roof of an inn being torn off

I was not following the weather at all that day. Anyone have any insights into how/why this supercell and tornado was able to form?
