    Weather data after 1990 is PARTIAL. For more current
    weather history, go to the National Climate Data Center
    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1877 Oregon Inlet NC was widened three quarters of a mile by a
    nor'easter.
    In 1947 A tornado struck Woodward OK during the late evening killing
    95 persons and causing six million dollars damage. The
    tornado, one to two miles in width, and traveling at a speed
    of 68 mph, killed a total of 167 persons along its 221 mile
    path from Texas into Kansas, injured 980 others, and caused
    nearly ten million dollars damage. A man looking out his
    front door was swept by a tornado from his home near Higgins
    TX and carried two hundred feet over trees. The bodies of
    two people, thought to be together at Glazier TX, were found
    three miles apart.
    In 1977 A storm brought 15.5 inches of rain to Jolo WV in 30 hours.
    In 1987 International Falls MN reported their sixth straight record
    high for the date, with a reading of 77 degrees. A cold
    front ushering sharply colder weather into the north central
    U.S. produced wind gusts to 60 mph at Glasgow MT.
    In 1988 Residents of Sioux City IA awoke to find two inches of snow
    on the ground following a record high temperature of 88
    degrees the previous afternoon.
    In 1989 Eighteen cities in the southwestern U.S. reported new record
    high temperatures for the date. The afternoon high of 80
    degrees at Eureka CA established a record for the month of
    April.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front produced
    severe weather from the Central High Plains to Arkansas
    and northern Texas. Severe thunderstorms spawned five
    tornadoes, and there were seventy reports of large hail
    and damaging winds. A tornado injured four persons at
    Ardmore OK, and thunderstorms produced wind gusts to 70
    mph at Kellyville OK, and hail three inches in diameter
    at Halmstead KS.
    In 1991 A squall line of severe thunderstorms, with gusts up to 110
    mph, raced across West Virginia, leaving $16 million damage.
    In 2003 Snow flurries fell in Little Rock for the first April snow
    since April 19, 1983...which is the latest measurable snow
    in Little Rock. The flurries melted as they hit the ground,
    so no accumulation resulted...as has been the case with all
    April snows in Little Rock.
    In 2004 Typhoon Sudal moved between Yap and Ngulu in the
    western Pacific Ocean, with 125 mph winds. Damaging
    winds also occurred on the island of Ulithi. The
    island of Yap was in the eyewall for a time, with]
    sustained winds of 75-100 mph, with gusts to 120
    mph. Sudal would become a Super Typhoon after moving
    away from the islands.

    Weather data after 1990 is PARTIAL. For more current
    weather history, go to the National Climate Data Center
    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1894 A heavy late season snow blanketed parts of the northeastern
    U.S. Heavier snowfall totals included 31.5 inches at Salem
    Corners PA, 30 inches at LeRoy NY, 26 inches at York PA,
    14 inches at Waterbury CT, and 9 inches at Providence RI.
    In 1929 A major outbreak of tornadoes occurred in northeast Arkansas;
    with 49 fatalities. One of the tornadoes, which travelled
    fron south of Batesville to north of Swifton to south of
    Alicia was the only F-5 tornado on record for Arkansas.
    In 1935 Severe dust storms across Iowa and Kansas closed schools
    and highways. Dodge City KS experienced its worst dust
    storm of record, with dense dust reported from the morning
    of the 9th until after sunset on the 11th. The sky was
    almost as dark as night at times during the daylight hours.
    The thick dust suspended traffic on highways and railroads,
    nd also suspended most business in town.
    In 1965 Six people were killed in a tornado at Conway, Arkansas,
    northwest of Little Rock. This was the beginning of a major
    tornado outbreak the next day in the Great Lakes and Ohio
    Valley.
    In 1979 A massive (F-5) tornado hit Wichita Falls TX, killing 43
    persons, and causing 300 million dollars damage. Another
    tornado struck Vernon TX killing eleven persons. The day
    became known as "Terrible Tuesday".
    In 1983 A dust devil formed over a field in Alaska's Tanana Valley,
    destroying a greenhouse, and blowing its debris 600 feet
    away.
    In 1987 Blustery northwest winds prevailed across the Northern Plains
    Region. Winds in Wyoming gusted to 65 mph. Temperatures in
    North Dakota were only in the 20s and 30s, following
    afternoon highs in the 70s the previous day.
    In 1988 Unseasonably warm weather prevailed in the western U.S.
    Eleven cities reported new record high temperatures for the
    date, including Bakersfield CA with a reading of 95 degrees,
    their warmest for so early in the season. Pocatello ID
    warmed from a record low of 19 above to an afternoon high of
    63 degrees.
    In 1989 Strong northerly winds, gusting to 53 mph at Albuquerque NM,
    ushered cold arctic air into the south central U.S. The
    temperature at Albuquerque plunged from 82 degrees to 29
    degrees overnight. Thirty-three cities in the central U.S.
    reported record low temperatures for the date, including
    Goodland KS with a reading of 4 degrees above zero.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from the Central Gulf
    Coast Region to western sections of the Carolinas during the
    afternoon and evening. Evening thunderstorms over western
    South Carolina produced wind gusts to 98 mph which injured
    four persons at Holly Springs, and wind gusts to 100 mph
    which injured one person and caused half a million dollars
    damage north of Dacusville.
    In 2013 At least 24 homes in Hazelwood, Missouri, sustained severe
    damage from severe storms, which pummeled the St. Louis
    area and elsewhere across the state. Another tornado
    touched down in Arkansas, damaging at least 33 homes, and
    leaving three people injured in Van Buren County, about 75
    miles north of Little Rock. The tornado demolished the
    sanctuary, fellowship area, classrooms, and a pavilion at
    Botkinburg Foursquare Church. Damage also was reported in
    several other areas, and storm spotters reported overturned
    vehicles along U.S. 65, north of Clinton. Flash Flooding
    occurred around Montain View, near the Missouri border, and
    downburst winds from 60 to 70 mph were reported in some
    areas. Lightning sparked fires caused house fires near
    Searcy and Pangburn. The next day, a violent and extremely
    dangerous tornado was spotted near Macon, Mississippi, in
    Nouxubee County. The storms continued to the east coast on
    the 12th. Tragically, several injuries and some fatalities
    were blamed on the squall line of severe thunderstorms
    (10th-12th).

    In 1965 Severe thunderstorms in the Upper Midwest spawned fifty-one
    tornadoes killing 256 persons and causing more than 200
    million dollars damage. Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan were
    hardest hit in the "Palm Sunday Tornado Outbreak".
    In 1987 Ten days of flooding in the northeastern U.S. finally came
    to an end. Damage from flooding due to rain and snow melt
    ran into the billions of dollars. The collapse of the New
    York State Thruway Bridge over Schoharie Creek claimed ten
    lives.
    In 1988 Sixteen cities in the western U.S., nine in California,
    reported new record high temperatures for the date.
    Afternoon highs of 95 degrees at Sacramento CA and 96 degrees
    at Bakersfield CA were the warmest of record for so early in
    the season.
    In 1989 Forty-four cities in the south central and eastern U.S.
    reported new record low temperatures for the date. Lows of
    25 degrees at Conway AR, 29 degrees at Dallas/Fort Worth TX,
    and 22 degrees at Ozark AR, were April records. Lows of 26
    degrees at Hot Springs AR and 31 degrees at Shreveport LA
    equalled April records.
    In 1990 While showers produced heavy rain over much of the
    northeastern U.S., heavy snow blanketed northern Maine,
    with 13 inches reported at Telos Lake. Strong southwesterly
    winds accompanying the rain and snow gusted to 68 mph at the
    Blue Hill Observatory in Massachusetts. Rainfall totals of
    1.04 inch at Pittsburgh PA and 1.52 inches at Buffalo NY on
    the 10th were records for the date.
    In 2020 (11th-13th) Easter Weekend 2020 was a violent weather period
    across much of the continental United States. Over 3,000
    storm reports were received by the Storm Prediction Center.
    They ranged from snow across the northern US...severe
    weather (very large hail, hurricane force winds, violent
    tornadoes and flooding rain) across the Southern Plains
    into the southeastern US...and high winds (not from storms)
    across areas not affected by snow or severe weather. Parts
    of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, which were blasted
    by large tornadoes not 2 weeks earlier, were hit yet again
    by more severe storms.

    In 1927 A tornado wiped out the town of Rock Springs TX killing
    72 persons and causing 1.2 million dollars damage. The
    tornado, more than one mile in width, destroyed 235 of
    247 buildings, leaving no trace of lumber or contents
    in many cases. Many survivors were bruised by large hail
    which fell after the passage of the tornado.
    In 1934 Winds atop Mount Washington NH averaged 186 mph for five
    minutes, with a peak gust of 231 mph, the highest wind speed
    ever clocked in the world. The actual gust may have been
    higher, but the anemometer broke at 231 mph.
    In 1945 On the day President Franklin Delano Roosevelt died,
    tornadoes raked northwest Arkansas with 25 fatalities. This
    was part of a major outbreak from Oklahoma into Missouri.
    In 1987 A cold front crossing the central U.S. produced heavy snow
    in the Central Rockies, and severe thunderstorms over Kansas
    and Oklahoma. Snowfall totals ranged up to 16 inches at
    Red Mountain Pass CO. Thunderstorm winds gusted to 87 mph
    at Ponca City OK. Winds associated with the cold front
    itself gusted to 69 mph at Tucumcari NM. A weak tornado
    touched down at Bosque Farms, NM,bending a basketball
    backboard on a metal pipe, so the top was 5 feet from the
    ground.

    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1877 The second coastal storm in just three days hit Virginia
    and the Carolinas. The first storm flattened the sand dunes
    at Hatteras, and widened the Oregon inlet three quarters of
    a mile. The second storm produced hurricane force winds along
    the coast of North Carolina causing more beach erosion and
    land transformation.
    In 1955 The town of Axis AL was deluged with 20.33 inches of rain in
    24 hours establishing a state record.
    In 1986 A major spring storm quickly intensified bringing blizzard
    conditions to much of the Northern Plains Region. Up to 18
    inches of snow was reported in North Dakota, and in South
    Dakota, winds gusting to 90 mph whipped the snow into drifts
    fifteen feet high. Livestock losses were in the millions of
    dollars, and for some areas it was the worst blizzard ever.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in northern Texas produced wind gusts to 98
    mph at the Killeen Airport, causing a million dollars in
    property damage. Two airplanes were totally destroyed by the
    high winds, and ten others were damaged.
    In 1988 Low pressure off the Atlantic coast produced high winds
    across North Carolina, with gusts to 78 mph reported at
    Waves. The high winds combined with high tides to cause
    coastal flooding and erosion. About 275 feet of land was
    eroded from the northern tip of Pea Island.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms in central Florida produced golf ball size
    hail and a tornado near Lakeland FL. Fair and mild weather
    prevailed across most of the rest of the nation.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced severe
    weather in central Oklahoma and north central Texas.
    Thunderstorms in Oklahoma produced up to six inches of golf
    ball size hail along I-40 near El Reno, and produced wind
    gusts to 75 mph at Okarche. Thunderstorms over north central
    Texas produced softball size hail northwest of Rotan, and
    high winds which injured two persons southeast of Itasca.
    In 1991 (9th-13th) A 3 mile long ice jam on Maine's St. John River
    broke up, releasing a 30 foot wall of ice, crushing cars,
    and houses.

    In 1886 A devastating tornado, 800 yards in width at times, cut a
    20 mile path through Saint Cloud MN killing 74 persons.
    The bottom of the Mississippi River was said to have been
    seen during the tornado's crossing. Eleven persons were
    killed at a wedding party near the town of Rice.
    In 1973 A famous Easter blizzard raged across Kansas, Nebraska and
    South Dakota. Gale force winds blew the wet snow into
    massive drifts, however there were few deaths due to the
    sparse population and due to the gradual increase of the
    storm.
    In 1987 A storm system moving slowly northeastward across the Middle
    Mississippi Valley produced severe thunderstorms which
    spawned three tornadoes around Ottumwa IA, and produced up
    to four inches of rain in southeastern Nebraska, flooding
    rivers and streams.
    In 1988 A weather disturbance off the southern coast of California
    brought parts of southern California their first rain in six
    weeks. Rain-slickened roads resulted in numerous accidents
    in southern California, including a ten car pile-up at
    Riverside.
    In 1989 Late afternoon thunderstorms in northern Florida soaked the
    own of Golden Gate with 4.37 inches of rain in about 2 hours,
    resulting in local flooding.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced
    severe weather in southeastern Texas during the mid morning
    hours. Thunderstorms produced dime size hail at Galveston,
    and wind gusts to 59 mph at Port Arthur. Afternoon
    thunderstorms over southeast Louisiana spawned tornadoes
    south of Bogalusa and at Rio.
    In 2011 (14th-15th) Severe thunderstorms with tornadoes, large
    hail, and damaging winds rolled across Arkansas. Golfball
    size hail occurred in some areas, with 10 tornadoes
    across Arkansas...including an EF1 in west Little Rock.
    In 2012 A tornado outbreak from Oklahoma, through Kansas, Nebraska,
    and Iowa, had over 250 reports of severe weather, with over
    120 tornadoes. Several died in Woodward, Oklahoma...and
    there were several large and violent tornadoes spawned,
    leaving behind widespread damage, and many others were
    were injured. An EF tornado hit Wichita, Kansas...and an
    tornado hit Thurman, Iowa.

    America. The storm left a total of 87 inches in 27 1/2 hours.
    A tornado outbreak that started in Texas swept into central
    Arkansas...with 35 fatalities in Arkansas.
    In 1927 New Orleans LA was drenched with 14.01 inches of rain,
    which established a 24 hour rainfall record for the state.
    In 1949 A hailstone five inches by five and a half inches in size,
    and weighing four pounds, was measured at Troy NY.
    In 1958 A tornado 300 yards in width skipped along a five mile path
    near Frostproof FL. A 2500 gallon water tank was found one
    mile from its original position (it is not known how much
    water was in the tank at the time).
    In 1987 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced severe
    weather in the Southern Atlantic Coast Region. A tornado
    killed one person and injured seven others near Mount Dora
    FL. Drifts of hail up to two feet deep were reported in
    Davidson and Rowan counties in North Carolina. Myrtle Beach
    SC was deluged with seven inches of rain in three hours.
    In 1988 Death Valley CA was soaked with 1.53 inches of rain in
    24 hours. Snow fell in the mountains of southern California.
    In 1989 Showers and thunderstorms soaked the eastern U.S. with heavy
    rain, pushing the rainfall total for the month at Cape
    Hatteras NC past their previous April record of 7.10 inches.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms developing along a stationary front produced
    severe weather from west central Texas to west central
    Arkansas during the late afternoon and evening. Thunderstorms
    spawned a tornado which caused more than half a million
    dollars damage at Fort Stockton TX, produced wind gusts to
    65 mph at Dennison TX, produced baseball size hail at
    Silo OK and near Capps Corner TX, and drenched southeastern
    Oklahoma with up to 4 inches of rain in two hours.

    In 1851 The famous "Lighthouse Storm" raged near Boston Harbor.
    Whole gales and gigantic waves destroyed Minot Light
    with its two keepers still inside. The storm resulted
    in great shipping losses and coastal erosion.
    In 1880 A tornado near Marshall MO carried the heavy timbers of an
    entire home a distance of twelve miles.
    In 1933 Franklin Lake NH was buried under 35 inches of snow.
    In 1960 A wind gust of 70 mph was measured at the Stapleton
    International Airport in Denver CO, their highest wind
    gust of record.
    In 1987 A slow moving storm system produced heavy rain over North
    Carolina and the Middle Atlantic Coast States. More than six
    inches of rain drenched parts of Virginia, and flooding in
    Virginia claimed three lives. Floodwaters along the James
    River inundated parts of Richmond VA.
    In 1988 A storm in the northeastern U.S. produced a foot of snow at
    Pittsburg VT. Severe thunderstorms produced baseball size
    hail and spawned five tornadoes in the Southern High Plains
    Region.
    In 1989 A cold front, ushering sharply colder air into the north
    central U.S., brought snow to parts of Montana and North
    Dakota. At midday the temperature at Cutbank MT was just
    22 degrees.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms developing along a stationary front produced
    large hail and damaging winds across Oklahoma, with 99
    reports of large hail and damaging winds during the evening
    and early nighttime hours. Thunderstorms produced baseball
    size hail south of Carney, and wind gusts to 100 mph in the
    Oklahoma City area which swept away many Federal tax returns
    being transported from a mail cart to a waiting truck about
    the time of the midnight deadline. Will Rogers Airport in
    Oklahoma City reported a record wind gust of 92 mph.
    In 2002 Several tornadoes struck the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex

    In 1922 A family of at least six tornadoes caused death and
    destruction along parts of a 210 mile path from north of
    Ogden IL to Allen County OH, killing sixteen persons.
    A post card, picked up in Madison County IN, was found
    124 miles away near Mount Cory OH.
    In 1953 One of the few severe hailstorms accompanied by snow,
    sleet, glaze, and rain, pelted parts of Kay, Osage,
    Creek, Tulsa, Washington, and Rogers Counties in
    northeastern Oklahoma late in the day. Nearly 10,000
    insurance claims were filed.
    In 1965 The Mississippi River reached a flood crest at Saint Paul MN
    four feet higher than any previous mark. During the next 2
    weeks, record levels were reached along the Mississippi
    between Saint Paul and Hannibal MO. Flooding caused more

    resulting in a seventeen-mile long traffic jam.
    In 2011 (30th-May 2nd) A stalled frontal boundary brought
    widespread rain, and flooding to much of Arkansas. Storm
    totals were from 6 to over 12 inches across much of
    north and central Arkansas...and some areas got close
    to 6 inches of rain in just 24 hours!! Many rivers across
    Arkansas went above flood stage, with portions of the
    Black and White Rivers well above the record flood stages
    that were set from 65 to 100 years ago. There were many
    road closures, evacuations, and rescues, due to the high
    water.

    60 million dollars damage. Thunderstorms also produced
    baseball size hail at Lake Murray SC, and wind gusts to
    78 mph at Brooklyn MD.
    In 1990 A strong Pacific cold front moving rapidly inland caused
    weather conditions at the east end of the Strait of Juan
    de Fuca in Washington State to quickly change from sunny
    and calm to westerly winds of 60 mph and ten-foot waves.
    Three recreational fishing boats capsized in heavy seas

    In 1933 Charleston SC was deluged with 10.57 inches of rain to
    establish their all-time 24 hour record.
    In 1975 A massive tornado hit Omaha NE killing three persons,
    injuring 133 others, and causing 150 million dollars
    damage. The tornado struck during the late afternoon,
    moving northeastward through the industrial and
    residential areas of west central Omaha, and lifting over
    the northern section of the city. The twister, which cut
    a swath ten miles long and as much as a quarter of a mile
    wide, was the most costly in U.S. history at that time.
    In 1987 Eighteen cities in California and Oregon reported record
    high temperatures for the date. Highs of 91 at Portland
    OR, 101 at Medford OR, and 104 at Sacramento CA, were the

    85 mph. In North Dakota, the high winds reduced
    visibilities to near zero in blowing dust closing many
    roads.
    In 1989 Sixteen cities in the north central U.S. reported record
    low temperatures for the date. Morning lows of 17 at
    Bismarck ND and 26 at Minneapolis MN were the coldest of

    Landing in Mississippi, then plowed through the city on
    the bluff. The tornado killed 317 persons, and caused a
    million dollars damage. The force of the storm caused
    houses to burst open. The tornado was the most deadly
    and destructive in early American history.
    In 1927 At least two monstrous tornadoes tracked 95 miles from near
    Aetna, Kansas, to SW of McPherson, Kansas.
    In 1961 A flash flood along Crooked Creek caused widespread damage
    at Harrison in northwest Arkansas.
    In 1964 The temperature at White Mountain 2, located in

    record for May for the continental U.S.
    In 1987 Thirty-one cities in the western U.S. reported record
    high temperatures for the date. Highs of 93 degrees at
    Portland OR and San Jose CA were the warmest of record

    Quillayute WA was a record for the month of May. The
    temperature at Sacramento CA hit 105 degrees.
    In 1988 A powerful storm in the north central U.S. produced up to
    three feet of snow in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming
    and the mountains of south central Montana. Up to five
    inches of rain drenched central Montana in less than 24
    hours, and flash flooding in Wyoming caused a million
    dollars damage.
    In 1989 Thirty-two cities in the central and eastern U.S.
    reported record low temperatures for the date, and
    24 hour snowfall totals of 7.2 inches at Buffalo NY and
    10.7 inches at Rochester NY were records for the month of
    May. While northerly winds ushered unseasonably cold air
    into the eastern U.S., temperatures warmed rapidly in the
    Great Plains Region, reaching the 90s in Kansas. The
    temperature at Manhattan KS soared from a low of 30
    degrees to a high of 88 degrees.
    In 1990 Gale force winds lashed the northern and central Pacific
    coast. A wind gust of 52 mph at Eureka CA established a
    record for the month of May. Strong winds over
    northeastern Colorado, associated with a fast moving
    Pacific cold front, gusted to 63 mph at Peetz. Snow
    developed over the northwest mountains of Wyoming late in
    the day, and Yellowstone National Park was whitened with
    6 to 14 inches.
    In 2002 Severe flooding trapped a school bus in Waverly, IN...but,
    all on board were rescued. Areas of eastern WA got 17" of
    snow.
    In 2003 (7th-8th) The stormy severe weather week of 2003 continued,
    as tornadoes struck DeSoto, MO on the 7th, heavily damaging
    the high school, and Oklahoma City, OK on the 8th. The
    Oklahoma City tornado on the 8th was eerily similar to the
    path and damage of the May 3, 1999 F-5 tornado that ravaged
    the area.

    In 1784 A deadly hailstorm in South Carolina hit the town of
    Winnsborough. The hailstones, measuring as much as nine
    inches in circumference, killed several persons, and a
    great number of sheep, lambs and birds.
    In 1803 A freak spring storm produced heavy snow from southern
    Indiana to New England. The storm made sleighing
    possible in Massachusetts, but ruined shade trees in
    Philadelphia.
    In 1837 A rare auroral pillar was seen for about 10 minutes in the
    night sky over the Bay Of Toronto.
    In 1981 Dallas/Fort Worth TX area experienced its worst hailstorm
    of record as baseball to grapefruit size hail,
    accompanied by 100 mph winds, caused nearly 200 million
    dollars damage. Hail accumulated eight inches deep at
    Cedar Hill.
    In 1987 Twenty-eight cities in the northwestern U.S. reported
    record high temperatures for the date. The record high
    of 95 degrees at Redding CA was their fifth in a row, and
    the record high of 102 degrees at Hanover WA was just one
    degree shy of their record for May.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms in the Mississippi Valley spawned a total
    of 57 tornadoes, including 24 in Wisconsin, and a record
    22 tornadoes in one day in Iowa. There were also more
    than 200 reports of large hail and damaging winds.
    Baseball size hail was reported at Terre Bonne Mo. At
    Rockford IL one person was temporarily trapped inside a
    portable toilet toppled by thunderstorm winds gusting to
    80 mph. Fortuntely, not a single person was killed in
    the "Mother's Day" tornado outbreak.
    In 1989 Twenty-one cities in the eastern U.S. reported record low
    temperatures for the date. Lows of 28 at Asheville NC
    and 31 at Greer SC were records for May.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in northwestern and
    north central Kansas during the evening and night.
    Thunderstorms produced hail three inches in diameter at
    Brewster, and wind gusts to 92 mph south of Wakeeney.
    Thunderstorms over northwest Iowa deluged the town of
    Boone with five inches of rain, flooding basements and
    leaving some areas under four feet of water.
    In 2002 A freight train derailed near West Plains, MO...the cause
    was suspected to be undermining of the railroad bed by
    flooding rains.

    lines. The homes of half a million persons were without
    power following the storm. (9th-10th)
    In 1985 Lightning struck some trees about 150 yards away from a
    home in Alabama, and followed the driveway to the home.

    Valley. A strong (F-3) tornado ripped through Middleboro
    KY causing more than 22 million dollars damage.
    Thunderstorms in east central Texas produced hail three
    and a half inches in diameter at Groesbeck and near
    Fairfield.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front in the
    south central U.S. produced golf ball size hail and wind
    gusts to 62 mph at Mira LA, and during the morning hours
    drenched Stuttgart AR with five inches of rain.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the central U.S.
    during the evening hours, mainly from southeastern
    Missouri to southwestern Indiana. Severe thunderstorms
    spawned four tornadoes, including two strong (F-2)
    tornadoes in southern Illinois. Strong thunderstorm
    winds gusted to 85 mph at Orient IL, and to 100 mph
    at West Salem. Thunderstorms drenched northeastern
    Illinois with up to 4.50 inches of rain. Elsewhere,
    1000 people died as a violent tropical cyclone lay waste to
    about 100 miles of India's southeast coast.
    In 2002 Centralia IL was hard hit by severe storms which tore
    through a mobile home park...2 were killed.

    marking the end of a five day episode of severe weather
    associated with a cyclone tracking out of the Great Basin
    into southeastern Canada.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front crossing
    the Plateau Region produced wind gusts to 75 mph at Butte

    perhaps the only authentic death by hail in U.S. weather
    records.
    In 1981 A tornado 450 yards in width destroyed ninety percent of
    Emberson TX. People did not see a tornado, but rather a
    wall of debris. Homes were leveled, a man in a bathtub
    was hurled a quarter of a mile, and a 1500 pound
    recreational vehicle was hurled 500 yards. Miraculously
    no deaths occurred in the tornado.
    In 1987 A cold front brought an end to the early season warm
    spell in the north central U.S., but not before the

    In 1883 A three day flood in the Black Hills of western South
    Dakota resulted in a million dollars damage at Rapid City.
    In 1979 A reading of 12 degrees at Mauna Kea Observatory
    established an all-time record low for the state of
    Hawaii.
    In 1983 A golfer playing the Fox Meadows Course in Memphis TN was
    struck by a bolt of lightning that went through his neck,
    down his spine, came out a pocket containing his keys,
    and went into a nearby tree. Miraculously, he survived!
    In 1987 A summer-like weather pattern continued, with warm
    temperatures and scattered thunderstorms across much
    of the nation. A cold front in the north central U.S.
    produced a sharp contrast in the weather across the state
    of Minnesota during the afternoon. At the same time
    Duluth was 50 degrees with rain and fog, Mankato was 95
    degrees with sunny skies.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced large hail and damaging winds over
    the Carolinas during the afternoon and evening.
    A "thunderstorm of a lifetime" in northern Spartanburg
    County SC produced hail for forty-five minutes, leaving
    some places knee-deep in hail. .
    In 1989 Thunderstorms ravaged the south central U.S. with severe
    weather for the third day in a row. Thunderstorms
    spawned another 19 tornadoes, for a total of fifty
    tornadoes in three days. A strong (F-2) tornado injured
    14 persons and caused two million dollars damage at Apple
    Springs TX. Baseball size hail was reported at Matador, TX.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced
    severe weather in New York State during the late morning
    and afternoon. A tornado injured one person at Warren,
    and wind gusts to 80 mph were reported at Owego. Evening
    thunderstorms over southwest Texas produced wind gusts to
    80 mph at Marfa, along with golf ball size hail which
    accumulated to a depth of ten inches, and late night
    thunderstorms in southwest Texas proudced up to seven
    inches of rain in western Crockett County.
    In 2014 The Balklands and Serbia experienced their worst flooding
    in over 120 years. (16th-18th).

    In 1825 A tornado (said to have crossed all of the state of Ohio)
    smashed into the log cabin settlement of Burlington,
    northeast of Columbus.
    In 1960 Salt Lake City UT received an inch of snow. It marked
    their latest measurable snowfall of record.
    In 1980 Mount Saint Helens (in Washington State) erupted spewing
    ash and smoke sixty-three thousand feet into the air.
    Heavy ash covered the ground to the immediate northwest,
    and small particles were carried to the Atlantic coast.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in Kansas, developing along a cold front,
    spawned tornadoes at Emporia and Toledo, produced wind
    gusts to 65 mph at Fort Scott, and produced golf ball
    size hail in the Kansas City area. Unseasonably hot
    weather prevailed ahead of the cold front. Pomona NJ
    reported a record high of 93 degrees, and Altus OK hit
    100 degrees.
    In 1988 Low pressure anchored over eastern Virginia kept showers
    and thunderstorms over the Middle Atlantic Coast Region.
    Flash flooding was reported in Pennsylvania. Up to five
    inches of rain drenched Franklin County PA in 24 hours.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front produced
    severe weather from the Central Gulf Coast States to the
    Lower Missouri Valley during the day and evening.
    Thunderstorms spawned 16 tornadoes, and there were
    74 reports of large hail and damaging winds.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the central U.S.
    spawning a total of sixteen tornadoes, including a dozen
    in Nebraska. Thunderstorms also produced hail 4 inches
    in diameter at Perryton TX, wind gusts to 84 mph at Ellis,
    KS; and high winds which caused nearly two million
    dollars damage at Sutherland NE. Thunderstorms deluged
    Sioux City IA with up to eight inches of rain, resulting
    in a record flood crest on Perry Creek and at least 4 1/2
    million dollars damage.
    In 2013 (18th-22nd) Widespread severe weather occurred across
    the country...from Texas and Oklahoma north into the
    Great Lakes region. Some of the tornadoes were strong to
    violent, especially in Oklahoma and Kansas...plus, there
    were reports of hail to as big as softballs, and damaging
    winds to hurricane force. The storms moved into the
    Mississippi Valley on the 21st, and worked toward the US
    east coast. At least 26 tornadoes occurred across portions
    of Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, and Illinois on the 19th.
    Tragically, widespread damage, injuries, and fatalities
    resulted. Many areas hit in the May 3, 1999 F-5 tornado
    were hit again on the 20th by an EF-5 tornado. At least 24
    died, across Oklahoma on the 20th...10 of those were
    children, at 1 of 2 elementary schools that took a direct
    hit from the massive tornado.

    In 1780 The infamous "dark day" in New England tradition.
    At noon it was nearly as dark as night. Chickens went to
    roost, and many persons were fearful of divine wrath.
    The phenomenon was caused by forest fires to the west of
    New England.
    In 1955 Lake Maloya NM received 11.28 inches of rain in 24 hours
    to establish a state record.
    In 1975 Thunderstorms produced golf ball size hail and wind gusts
    to 110 mph in Minnesota, between Fridley and Hugo. Fifty
    persons were injured. The hail and high winds destroyed
    fifty mobile homes, and a dozen aircraft, and also
    destroyed a third of the Brighton Elementary School.
    In 1978 Moorcroft, Wyoming received an incredible May snowfall
    total of 92". 55" fell from the 3rd to the 9th.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in Texas produced thirteen inches of rain
    northwest of Lavernia. The heavy rain, along with golf
    ball size hail, destroyed eighty percent of the crops in
    the area, while high winds toppled trees. Golf ball size
    hail was also reported south of Dallas and around San
    Antonio. Up to 8 inches of rain drenched Guadelupe
    County.
    In 1988 Severe thunderstorms in southwest Texas produced hail as
    large as tennis balls around Midland, with the hail
    accumulating up to a foot deep. Showers and thunder-
    storms in the Middle Atlantic Coast Region produced
    3.5 inches of rain near Schuylkill PA.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front spawned
    ten tornadoes from Illinois to Tennessee during the
    afternoon and night. Snow, wind and cold prevailed in
    the Northern Plateau Region and the Northern Rockies.
    Dixie ID was blanketed with nine inches of snow, winds
    gusted to 87 mph at Choteau MT, and the temperature at
    Crater Lake OR dipped to 11 degrees.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms deluged Hot Springs AR with thirteen inches
    of rain in nine hours resulting in a devastating flood.
    Two waves of water, four to six feet deep, swept down
    Central Avenue flooding stores and the famous bathhouses
    on Bathhouse Row. Water released from Lake Hamilton
    devastated the area between it and Remmel Dam. The 500
    foot Carpenter Dam Bridge across Lake Catherine was
    completely washed away, as were cabins and mobile homes
    near the lake, many of which flowed right over the top of
    Remmel Dam.
    In 2012 Tropical Storm Alberto became the earliest forming
    tropical storm in the Atlantic Basin since 2003. This
    the first time that a tropical storm has formed before
    the official start of the hurricane season in both the
    Atlantic and East Pacific Basins (Aletta formed in the
    Eastern Pacific basin on May 14, 2012).

    claimed the lives of forty-five persons, and left
    hundreds homeless. It was the worst weather disaster of
    record for Kansas City.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in southern Texas produced grapefruit size
    hail, by Dilley, and produced wind gusts to 73 mph at
    Lake Amistad. The large hail broke windows, killed small
    animals, and damaged watermelon. Thunderstorms
    developing along a warm front produced severe weather
    from Indiana to the Dakotas. Thunderstorms produced

    In 1860 A swarm of tornadoes occurred in the Ohio Valley.
    Tornadoes struck the cities of Louisville KY, Cincinnati
    OH, Chillicothe OH and Marietta OH causing a million
    dollars damage.
    In 1895 The temperature at Norwalk OH dipped to 19 degrees to
    establish a state record for the month of May.
    In 1896 The temperature at Salton CA soared to 124 degrees to
    establish a U.S. record for May.
    In 1980 The temperature at Williston ND reached 102 degrees to
    set a record for May. The next day the mercury hit
    106 degrees.
    In 1987 Severe thunderstorms, developing along a cold front
    ushering sharply colder weather into the central U.S.,
    produced 60 mph winds and golf ball size hail at Sedalia
    MO, and drenched Hagerstown IN with six inches of rain in
    one hour. Temperatures soared into the 90s ahead of the
    cold front. Paducah KY hit 94 degrees for the second day
    in a row. Light snow blanketed Montana, with three
    inches reported at Butte.
    In 1988 Severe thunderstorms swept across southern Louisiana
    during the morning hours spawning six tornadoes, and
    producing wind gusts to 88 mph at Jennings. Thunder-
    storms also produced five inches of rain in two hours at
    Lake Charles, causing local flooding.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms moving southeastward across the Central
    Plains Region into Oklahoma and Arkansas produced severe
    weather through the day and night. Thunder-storms
    spawned just four tornadoes, but there were 243 reports
    of large hail and damaging winds. Baseball size hail was
    reported at Augusta KS, and thunderstorm winds gusted to
    98 mph at Johnson KS.
    In 1990 Thunderstorms produced severe weather across the
    southeastern U.S. for the second day in a row. Severe
    thunderstorms spawned five tornadoes, including one which
    injured a person at Richmond KY. There were eighty-seven
    reports of large hail or damaging winds, with hail three
    inches in diameter reported at Austin TX. Thunderstorms
    produced up to five inches of rain in Macon County GA,
    and heavy rains left nearly eight feet of water over
    roads near Stepstone KY.
    In 2001 Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes raged across the
    southern plains, and Great Lakes Region. Among other
    places, tornadoes struck Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Michigan
    (20th-21st). One supercell formed near Russellville,
    Arkansas, and remained tornadic until the Mississippi
    River...dropping a tornado in an empty field at Antioch.
    Denver CO experienced a wide range in both weather and
    temperature...when morning temperatures in the 70s were
    met by winds near hurricane force from a cold front, and
    snow with afternoon temperatures in the 30s.
    In 2014 Supercell thunderstorms spawned several tornadoes and
    numerous instances of hail up to baseball size, in and
    around the Denver CO area. One tornado came within a
    a mile of the airport, and several airplanes had to be
    taken out of service, due to hail damage. Huge drifts
    of hail piled up on streets, and flooding from heavy
    rainfall stranded several drivers. The next day, severe
    storms affected parts of the mid-Atlantic region...
    including portions of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia,
    Maryland, and New York...with large hail, damaging winds,
    flooding rain, and isolated tornadoes.

    24 hours, an all-time record for that location.
    In 1911 The temperature at Lewiston ME soared to 101 degrees. It
    was the hottest temperature ever recorded in New England
    during the month of May.
    In 1986 A hailstorm in central China destroyed 35,000 homes &
    7700 acres of crops, killed over 100 people and injured
    9000.

    Texas community of Saragosa off the map. The twister
    destroyed eighty-five percent of the structures in the
    town killing thirty persons and injuring 121 others in
    the town of population 183. The tornado hurled trucks
    and autos through adobe and wood-frame homes, with some
    vehicles blown 500 feet.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather over the Central
    Gulf Coast States. Tennis ball size hail was reported at
    Ripley MS. Showers and thunderstorms in southern
    Missouri produced 3.20 inches of rain at Springfield
    to easily surpass their rainfall record for the date.
    In 1989 Unseasonably hot weather continued in southern Texas and
    parts of the southwestern U.S. Seven cities reported
    record high temperatures for the date, including El Paso
    TX with a reading of 100 degrees. Presidio TX was the
    hot spot in the nation with a high of 111 degrees.
    In 1990 Late afternoon and evening thunderstorms developing ahead
    of a cold front in the north central U.S. produced severe
    weather from northwestern Kansas to central Minnesota and
    southeastern North Dakota. There were twenty-nine

    North Carolina soaked Wilmington with 2.91 inches of
    rain, which established a record for the date.
    In 2011 Severe weather widespread from the Great Lakes and Ohio
    Valley areas, southwest into Oklahoma and Texas. An EF5
    tornado smashed its way through Joplin, Missouri, causing
    widespread damage...including to one of two area hospitals,
    a high school, and a local Wal-Mart. A total of 158 people
    died, the largest number ever killed in one area by a
    single tornado, and it was the 8th deadliest tornado in
    U.S. history. Medical equipment from Saint Johns Regional
    Medical Center, which was right in the path of the tornado,
    was found 45 miles away, with X-Rays from the hospital
    found 70 miles away. The violent winds pushed several
    people out of the windows to the ground below. Over 20 semi
    trucks and countless cars were overturned on Interstate 44.
    The tornado was on the ground for more than 22 miles.
    In 2012 With the development of Tropical Storm Bud in the Eastern
    Eastern Pacific Basin, this is the earliest date on record
    for the second tropical storm in that basin; surpassing
    the previous earliest date of May 29.

    In 1882 An unusual late season snow blanketed eastern Iowa, with
    4 to 6 inches reported around Washington.
    In 1953 The temperature at Hollis OK soared from a morning low of
    70 degrees to an afternoon high of 110 degrees to
    establish a state record for the month of May.
    In 1972 The worst ice-jam flooding in 100 years caused the Yukon
    and Kuskokwim Rivers in Alaska to "flow as one."
    In 1987 It was a busy day for thunderstorms in the central U.S.
    Thunderstorms produced wind gusts to 65 mph at Shreveport
    LA, and golf ball size hail at Marfa TX. Hobart OK
    received 3.55 inches of rain in the morning, and another
    4.03 inches of rain that evening. Thunder-storms in
    Nebraska produced 8.5 inches of rain in two hours north

    eastern U.S. Golf ball size hail was reported in
    Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and
    Ohio.
    In 1989 Severe thunderstorms developing along a cold front
    resulted in 98 reports of large hail and damaging winds
    in the Northern Plains and Upper Mississippi Valley.
    Golf ball size hail caused a million dollars damage
    around Buffalo City WI, baseball size hail was reported
    at Northfield MN and Randolph MN, and thunderstorm winds
    gusted to 95 mph at Dunkerton IA.
    Unseasonably hot weather continued in the south central
    U.S. Pueblo CO equalled their May record with a high of
    98 degrees, and the high of 106 degrees at Midland TX
    marked a record six straight days of 100 degree heat.
    In 1990 A cold front crossing the western U.S. produced snow over
    parts of Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho and Utah, with
    five inches reported at Austin NV, and four inches at
    Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Strong winds behind
    the cold front sharply reduced visibilities in blowing
    dust over central California, and two multi-vehicle
    accidents resulted in one death and eighteen injuries.
    In northern Idaho, a cloud-burst washed tons of topsoil,
    and rocks as large as footballs, into the valley town of
    Culdesac.

    In 1894 Six inches of snow blanketed Kentucky. Just four days
    earlier as much as ten inches of snow had fallen across
    Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. Six days earlier a
    violent storm had wrecked nine ships on Lake Michigan.
    In 1930 A tornado touched down near the town of Pratt KS and
    traveled at the incredibly slow speed of just 5 mph.
    In 1940 Hail fell near Ada OK to a depth of six to eight inches.
    Rainfall runoff left drifts of hail up to five feet high.
    In 1987 Severe thunderstorms in southwest Texas spawned a couple
    of tornadoes near Silverton, and produced golf ball size
    hail east of the town of Happy. Thunderstorms also
    produced large hail and damaging winds in Louisiana and
    Texas.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the southeastern
    U.S. Thunderstorm winds gusted to 88 mph at Columbia SC.
    Baseball size hail was reported near Tifton GA.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front produced
    severe weather across the Upper Midwest through the day
    and night. Thunderstorms spawned 30 tornadoes, and there
    were 158 reports of large hail and damaging winds. A
    strong (F-3) tornado caused five million dollars damage
    at Corning IA, and a powerful (F-4) tornado caused five
    million dollars damage at Traer IA. Thunderstorm winds
    gusting to 88 mph killed one person and injured five
    others at Stephensville WI.
    In 1990 Severe thunderstorms spawned two dozen tornadoes from
    Montana to Oklahoma. Four tornadoes carved a 109-mile
    path across central Kansas. The third of the four
    tornadoes blew 88 cars of an 125-car train off the track,
    stacking them three to four cars high in some cases, and
    the fourth tornado caused 3.9 million dollars damage.
    The third tornado injured six persons who were trying to
    escape in vehicles. A woman was "sucked out" of a truck
    and said that at one time she was "airborne, trying to
    run but my feet wouldn't touch the ground". She also saw
    a live deer "flying through the air".
    In 2014 Hurricane Amanda in the Eastern Pacific basin, reached
    major hurricane status...the second earliest major
    hurricane on record in the basin, behind only Hurricane
    Bud of 2012. 24 hours later, she became a category 4
    hurricane with 140 mph winds...making her the second
    strongest May hurricane in the Eastern Pacific basin
    on record, behind Hurricane Adolph in 2001. Just 6 hours
    later, she jumped to 155 mph winds, just under category

    In 1917 A tornado ripped through southeastern Kansas, traveling
    65 mph. The average speed was a record for any tornado.
    In 1955 Two tornadoes struck the town of Blackwell OK within a
    few minutes time during the late evening. The tornadoes
    killed 18 persons and injured more than 500 others.
    Early the next morning a tornado virtually obliterated
    the small community of Udall KS killing 80 persons and
    injuring 270 persons. More than half the persons in the
    community were killed or injured by the tornado.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms spawned 15 tornadoes in West Texas. One
    thunderstorm spawned a powerful tornado near Gruver TX,
    along with golf ball size hail and 75 mph winds. A man
    on a boat on Lake Bistineau in northwest Louisiana was
    struck and killed by lightning, while the other three
    persons in the boat were unharmed. The man reportedly
    stood up in the boat and asked to be struck by lightning.
    In 1988 Unseasonably cool weather prevailed in the Upper Midwest.
    Marquette MI reported a record low of 26 degrees.
    Thunderstorms in the north central U.S. produced wind
    gusts to 62 mph at Idaho Falls ID, and produced 4 inches
    of rain in less than four hours in northern Buffalo
    County.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a strong cold front
    produced severe weather from Oklahoma to Ohio through the
    day and night. Thunderstorms spawned nine tornadoes, and
    there were 155 reports of large hail and damaging winds.
    Hail three and a half inches in diameter was reported at
    Dittmer MO, and thunderstorm winds gusting to 90 mph
    caused twenty million dollars damage at Rockville IN.
    In 1990 Evening thunderstorms spawned four tornadoes in Kansas
    and Missouri, and there were three dozen reports of large
    hail or damaging winds. Thunderstorms produced hail two
    inches in diameter at Cole Camp, and wind gusts to 72 mph
    at Rosebud. Heavy thunderstorm rains produced flash
    flooding in central Missouri. Flood-waters swept through
    Washington State Park southwest of Saint Louis, and
    nearly one hundred persons had to be rescued from water
    as much as twenty feet deep. The floodwaters swept away
    a number of vehicles, some were carried as much as four
    miles away.
    In 2013 Intense rainfall, over a foot in some areas, led to
    widespread flash flooding in south Texas, especially
    around the San Antonio, Texas area. Over 9 1/2 inches
    of rain fell in the San Antonio area alone.

    The tornado path was short, but cut across a densely
    populated area. It touched down six miles west of Eads
    Bridge in Saint Louis and widened to a mile as it crossed
    into East Saint Louis. The tornado was the most

    several people in Kansas and Nebraska were injured by the
    weekend's tornadoes which also ripped through parts of
    those states.
    In 2013 A massive tornado roared through the Oklahoma City area,
    and adjacent areas...including areas of Moore that were
    hit by an EF-5 tornado just days earlier. Another tornado
    hit the St. Louis area...but, it went just north of the
    area. These were just 2 of the severe weather events that
    a large part of the country that day. Three storm chasers
    were part of the fatalities in Oklahoma...and three from
    The Weather Channel were injured by one of the rain
    wrapped tornadoes. The tornado that hit El Reno was
    upgraded to an EF-5. Doppler On Wheels recorded 296 mph

    In 2001 Tropical Storm Allison formed rapidly in the Gulf Of
    Mexico, and headed toward southeast Texas. Although a
    "hybrid system", the storm dumped torrential, flooding
    rains on south Texas...with areas from Houston to New
    Orleans, and elsewhere...getting over 12 inches of
    rain in a few hours time...with larger storm totals.
    There were also a few tornadoes spawned by the remnants
    of Allison...which moved little once inland. She finally
    moved offshore and headed east into Alabama, but not
    before dropping storm totals of near 4 feet, causing
    extensive flooding, damage, and several deaths. The
    remnants continued east northeast into Georgia, and
    then moved up the eastern seaboard, and finally offshore
    to merge with a cold front. (5th-18th).
    In 2013 A severe thunderstorm formed a waterspout on the
    Mississippi River, which was confirmed by the Coast Guard,
    just northwest of Bartlett, Tennessee, near Memphis.

    In 1953 A tornado hit the town of Worcester MA killing ninety
    persons. The northeastern states usually remain free of
    destructive tornadoes, however in this case a low
    pressure system, responsible for producing severe
    thunderstorms in Michigan and Ohio the previous day,
    brings severe weather to New Hampshire and central
    Massachusetts. The tornado mangled steel towers built to
    withstand winds of 375 mph. The tornado, up to a mile in
    width at times, tracked 46 miles through Worcester
    County. Debris from the tornado fell in the Boston area,
    and adjacent Atlantic Ocea.
    In 1972 A cloudburst along the eastern slopes of the Black Hills
    of South Dakota produced as much as 14 inches of rain
    resulting in the Rapid City flash flood disaster. The
    rains, which fell in about four hours time, caused the
    Canyon Lake Dam to collapse. A wall of water swept
    through the city drowning 237 persons, and causing more
    than 100 million dollars property damage.
    In 1987 Lightning struck "Tire Mountain" near Denver CO,
    destroying two million tires out of a huge pile of six
    million tires. Thunderstorms spawned three tornadoes
    around Denver, and a man was killed at Conifer CO when
    strong thunderstorm winds lifted up a porch and dropped
    it on him. A thunderstorm near Compton MD produced two
    inch hail, and high winds which destroyed twenty barns
    and ten houses injuring five persons.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from North Carolina
    to the Central Gulf Coast Region. Hail in North Carolina
    caused more than five million dollars damage to property,
    and more than sixty million dollars damage to crops.
    Hail three and a half inches in diameter was reported at
    New Bern NC. Thunderstorms in the Central High Plains
    produced 18 inches of hail at Fountain CO. The
    temperature at Del Rio TX soared to an all-time record
    high of 112 degrees.
    In 1989 Severe weather abated for a date, however, showers and
    thunderstorms continued to drench the eastern U.S. with
    torrential rains. Milton FL was deluged with 15.47
    inches in 24 hours. Record heat and prolonged drought in
    south central Texas left salt deposits on power lines and
    insulators near the coast, and when nighttime dew causing
    arcing, the city of Brownsville was plunged into darkness.
    In 2010 (9th-11th) Intense rainfall lead to major flash flooding
    over several areas. On the 9th, the system dumped more than
    evacuations ordered. On the 10th, similar precipitation
    amounts closed roads in Tyler, Texas, where there were also
    many rescues. On the 11th, 6 to 7 inches of rain, caused
    the Little Missouri River to rise over 20 feet in under 3
    hours, cresting at a record of 23 feet...in the Albert Pike
    Campground area near Langley, Arkansas. Tragically, 20
    people...including children (one as young as 2 years old),
    drowned in the event in southwest Arkansas.

    Today is Friday June 11, 2021.
    This is the 162nd day of the year, there are 203 days left.

    On this day...
    Weather data after 1990 is PARTIAL. For more current
    weather history, go to the National Climate Data Center
    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1842 A late season snowstorm struck New England. Snow fell
    during the morning and early afternoon, accumulating to
    a depth of 10 to 12 inches at Irasburg VT. Berlin NH was
    blanketed with eleven inches of snow during the day.
    Snow whitened the higher peaks of the Appalachians as far
    south as Maryland.
    In 1877 The temperature at Los Angeles CA reached 112 degrees
    during a heatwave. It would have been the all-time
    record for Los Angeles, but official records did not
    begin until twenty days later.
    In 1972 Heavy showers brought 1.64 inches of rain to Phoenix AZ,
    a record for the month of June.
    In 1984 A 160 mph downburst blew a home near Rowena, South Dakota,
    totally off its foundation, and scattered debris for several
    miles.
    In 1987 South Texas endured another day of torrential rains. Up
    to 12 inches of rain drenched Harris County, and nearly
    ten inches soaked Luce Bayou, mainly during the afternoon
    hours. Thunderstorm rains left seven feet of water over
    Highway 189 in northern Val Verde County. Flooding
    caused nine million dollars damage in Real County. A
    thunderstorm at Perryton TX produced golf ball size hail
    and 70 mph winds, and spawned a tornado which struck a
    mobile home, killing one person and injuring the other four
    occupants.
    In 1988 Thirty cities in the central and eastern U.S. reported
    record low temperatures for the date, including El Dorado
    AR with a reading of 48 degrees. Canaan Valley WV and
    Thomas WV dipped to 30 degrees. Flagstaff AZ was the
    cold spot in the nation with a low of 30 degrees.
    Coolidge, just 180 miles away, was the hot spot with a
    high of 105 degrees.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the south
    central and southeastern U.S. during the day and night.
    Thunderstorms spawned eleven tornadoes, including one
    which tore the roof off a restaurant at Bee Branch AR
    injuring six persons. The tornado tossed a car into the
    restaurant, and another car over it. Temperatures soared
    into the 90s across much of Florida. Lakeland reported
    a record high of 99 degrees for the second day in a row.
    In 1999 A supercell thunderstorm that traveled from near Denver
    to Colorado Springs, Colorado before splitting into two
    cells and then weakening...spawned a huge hailstorm that
    dropped hail up to 2 1/2 inches in diameter from 8-12
    inches deep in many areas, damaging several buildings. The
    aerial view from the area looked like it had snowed!!

    Weather data after 1990 is PARTIAL. For more current
    weather history, go to the National Climate Data Center
    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1881 Severe thunderstorms spawned more than half a dozen
    tornadoes in the Lower Missouri Valley. Five of the
    tornadoes touched down near Saint Joseph MO. In south
    central Kansas a tornado nearly wiped out the town of
    Floral. Hail and high winds struck Iowa and southern
    Minnesota. In Minnesota, Blue Earth City reported five
    inches of rain in one hour.
    In 1899 A tornado struck New Richmond, WI, killing 117, and
    injuring 200.
    In 1947 A heavy wet snow blanketed much of southern and central
    Wyoming, and gave many places their heaviest and latest
    snow of record. Totals included 18.4 inches at Lander,
    8.7 inches at Cheyenne, and 4.5 inches at Casper. (11th-
    12th)
    In 1969 Record late season snows covered parts of Montana. Five
    inches was reported at Great Falls and east of Broadus.
    Billings MT tied their June record with lows of 32
    degrees on the 12th and the 13th.
    In 1983 The state of Utah was beseiged by floods and mudslides.
    Streets in downtown Salt Lake City were sandbagged and
    turned into rivers of relief. The town of Thistle was
    completely inundated as a mudslide made a natural dam.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in Nebraska produced softball size hail
    around Fremont and Ames, and 3.5 inches of rain in less
    than one hour. Four and a half inches in less than an
    hour caused flooding around Ithica NE. A tornado
    destroyed a mobile home near Broken Bow NE injuring both
    occupants.
    In 1988 Fifteen cities in the southeastern U.S. reported record
    low temperatures for the date, including Asheville with
    a reading of 40 degrees. Drought conditions continued to
    intensify across the eastern half of the nation. Rainfall
    at Nashville TN was running 12.5 inches below normal.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from Tennessee
    Valley to the Central Appalachians in the afternoon and
    evening, and produced severe weather in Oklahoma and
    Texas during the evening and night. Thunderstorms
    spawned ten tornadoes, and there were 164 reports of
    large hail and damaging winds. Thunderstorms produced
    wind gusts to 100 mph at Amarillo TX, and wind gusts to
    110 mph at Denton TX. Hail three inches in diameter was
    reported at Tucumcari NM.
    In 2013 (12th-13th) Widespread severe storms over the Midwest
    during the late evening, became organized into a squall
    line over Indiana before Midnight EDT. The line then
    accelerated east across Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Jersey
    through Thursday morning, June 13, 2013 with an average '
    forward speed of 47 mph. The bow echo/derecho traveled
    over 400 miles in about 6 hours during its peak intensity
    resulting in over 100 damaging wind reports. The most
    significant damage appears to have occurred during the
    late evening across parts of Indiana.
    In 2014 Hurricane Cristina intensified rapidly to 150 mph in the
    Eastern Pacific basin. She is the earliest second major
    hurricane in the eastern Pacific, since reliable records
    rbegan in 1971, eclipsing the former record of Darby in
    2014 by 13 days. However, like Hurricane Amanda earlier
    in the season, which also got to category 4 status,
    Cristina is only a threat to shipping. With Cristina
    also becoming a category 4, it's the first time that
    there have been 2 category hurricanes through June in the
    Eastern North Pacific basin, since the beginning of the
    satellite era in 1966. Prior to Cristina, the earliest
    second category 4 hurricane was Hurricane Elida in 1984,
    which reached that threshold on July 1.

    fractured by wind-blown debris.
    In 1957 East Saint Louis was deluged with 16.54 inches of rain in
    24 hours, a record for the state of Illinois.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced
    severe weather in the northwestern U.S. A tornado
    damaged five homes and destroyed a barn near Salmon ID.
    It lifted a metal shed 100 feet into the air, and
    deposited it 100 yards away. Hail an inch and a half in

    In 1875 A severe coastal storm (or possible hurricane) struck the
    Atlantic coast from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia. Eastport ME
    reported wind gusts to 57 mph.
    In 1958 Hailstones up to four inches in diameter killed livestock
    as a storm passed from Joliet to Belfry in Carbon County MT.
    In 1970 Wind and rain, and hail up to seven inches deep, caused
    more than five million dollars damage at Oberlin KS.
    In 1987 It was a hot day in the Upper Great Lakes Region. Nine
    cities in Michigan and Wisconsin reported record high
    temperatures for the date. The high of 90 degrees at
    Marquette MI marked their third straight day of record
    heat. Severe thunderstorm in the Northern and Central
    High Plains Region spawned half a dozen tornadoes in
    Wyoming and Colorado. Wheatridge CO was deluged with 2.5
    inches of rain in one hour.
    In 1988 Severe thunderstorms in eastern North Dakota and northern

    In 1835 A tornado tore through the center of New Brunswick NJ
    killing five persons and scattering debris as far as
    Manhattan Island. The tornado provided the first
    opportunity for scientists to study firsthand the track
    of such a storm.
    In 1938 A cloudburst near Custer Creek MT (near Miles City)
    caused a train wreck killing forty-eight persons. An
    estimated four to seven inches of rain deluged the head
    of the creek that evening, and water flowing through the
    creek weakened the bridge. As a result, a locomotive and
    seven passenger cars plunged into the swollen creek. One
    car, a tourist sleeper, was completely submerged.
    In 1972 Hurricane Agnes moved onshore near Cape San Blas FL with
    wind gusts to 80 mph, and exited Maine on the 26th.
    There were 117 deaths, mainly due to flooding from North
    Carolina to New York State, and total damage was
    estimated at more than three billion dollars. Up to 19
    inches of rain deluged western Schuylkill County PA. The
    rains of Hurricane Agnes resulted in one of the greatest
    natural disasters in U.S. history. Agnes caused more
    damage than all other tropical cyclones in the previous
    six years combined (which included Celia and Camille).
    In 1987 It was a warm June day, with plenty of thunderstorms east
    of the Rockies. Lightning knocked out power at
    Throckmorton TX, and ignited an oil tank battery.
    A woman in Knox City TX was struck by lightning while in
    her car, and a man was struck by lightning near his home
    in Manatee County FL. Strong thunderstorm winds
    overturned several outhouses near Bixby OK, but no
    injuries were reported.
    In 1988 Temperatures soared above 100 degrees in the central U.S.
    for Father's Day. Fifteen cities reported record high
    temperatures for the date. Severe thunderstorms in
    Minnesota and Wisconsin produced softball size hail near
    River Falls WI, and wind gusts to 80 mph at Menomonie WI.
    In 1989 Fourteen cities reported record high temperatures for the
    date as searing heat spread from the southwestern deserts
    into the High Plains Region. Record highs included 98 at

    In 1682 A major tornado ripped through southwestern Connecticut,
    passing through Stratford, Milford, and New Haven, and
    then into Long Island Sound.
    In 1921 Circle MT received 11.5 inches of rain in 24 hours,
    a record for the state. The town of Circle received a
    total of 16.79 inches of rain that month to establish a
    rainfall record for any town in Montana for any month of
    the year.
    In 1928 A farmer near Greensburg KS looked up into the heart of
    a tornado. He described its walls as "rotating clouds
    lit with constant flashes of lightning and a strong gassy
    odor with a screaming, hissing sound".
    In 1964 A squall line producing large hail swept through central
    Illinois. A second squall line moved through during the
    early morning hours of the 21st, and a third one moved
    through shortly after dawn. The series of hailstorms
    caused nine million dollars damage. Hailstones as large
    as grapefruit caused heavy damage to trees, utility
    lines, crops and buildings. The thunderstorms also
    produced as much as five inches of rain in an eight hour
    period.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms prevailed east of the Rockies, producing
    severe weather in the Central High Plains Region.
    Thunderstorms spawned four tornadoes in Colorado, and
    produced wind gusts to 70 mph at Goodland KS.
    In 1988 Thirty-eight cities in the central U.S. reported record
    high temperatures for the date. Afternoon highs of 97 at
    Flint MI and 104 at Chicago IL equalled records for the
    month of June. Thunderstorms in North Dakota produced
    baseball size hail near Kief, and wind gusts to 100 mph
    near McGregor.
    In 1989 An early morning thunderstorm produced wind gusts to
    61 mph at Pierre SD, and hot thunderstorm winds raised
    the temperature at Pierre from 86 at midnight to 96 at 1
    AM to 104 degrees at 2 AM. Butte MT and Yellowstone Park
    WY reported snow that afternoon.

    In 1791 A huge hurricane wave carried off the coffin of a hated
    count as he lay in state in Havana, never to be seen again.
    In 1893 On the first day of summer the temperature at Dodge City
    KS soared to 106 degrees during the midst of a blistering
    heat wave. The heat wave initiated a severe three year
    drought in the Central Plains Region. Ironically, at
    about the same time, heavy rains in the Mississippi
    Valley were causing the river to swell to its highest
    level of record at New Orleans LA.
    In 1919 Seven heavy coach cars of a moving train were picked up
    and thrown from the tracks by tornado winds. A baggage
    car was set down 30 feet away from the rest of the train.
    In 1954 A severe hailstorm struck Wichita KS and vicinity causing
    nine million dollars damage.
    In 1972 Phoenix AZ was drenched with 1.64 inches of rain late on
    the 21st and early on the 22nd to easily surpass their
    previous June rainfall record of 0.95 inches. The total
    for the month was 1.70 inches.
    In 1987 A tornado destroyed 57 mobile homes at the Chateam
    Estates trailer park northwest of Detroit MI killing one
    person and injuring six others. Total damage was
    estimated at 1.7 million dollars. Thunderstorms over
    Lower Michigan also drenched the Saginaw Valley with up
    to 4.5 inches of rain in less than six hours.
    In 1988 The first full day of summer was a torrid one, with
    100 temperatures reported from the Northern and Central
    Plains to the Ohio Valley. Sixty-nine cities in the
    north central U.S. reported record high temperatures for
    the date. The high of 110 degrees at Sioux Falls SD was
    an all-time record for that location. Highs of 103 at
    Des Moines IA, 102 at Fort Wayne IN, 109 at Huron SD, 108
    at Sioux City IA, and 101 at South Bend IN were records
    for June.
    In 1989 The first day of summer heralded snow in the northern and
    central Rockies. Fifteen inches of snow was reported at
    the summit of Mount Evans CO, and 18 inches was reported
    west of Lander WY, at Dickensen Park. Heavy rain
    continued in the eastern U.S. Huntsville AL reported a
    record 11.65 inches for the month, compared to the 0.17
    inch rainfall total in June 1988.

    In 1932 Hailstones killed 200 in Hunan Province, China.
    In 1947 Twelve inches of rain fell in forty-two minutes at Holt
    MO establishing a world rainfall record. The record was
    tied on January 24-25, 1956, at the Kilauea Sugar
    Plantation in Hawaii, as their state record was
    established with 38 inches of rain in 24 hours.
    In 1972 Hurricane Agnes deluged Pennsylvania and New York with
    torrential rains resulting in the most costly flood in
    U.S. history. In the Middle Susquehanna Valley of
    Pennsylvania, 24 hour rainfall amounts were generally
    8 to 12 inches, with up to 19 inches in extreme
    southwestern Schuylkill County. At Wilkes-Barre PA the
    dike was breached destroying much of the town. Flooding
    resulted in 117 deaths and 3.1 billion dollars damage.
    In 1981 A young woman from Lubbock TX was struck by lightning.
    The bolt of lightning struck just above her right
    shoulder near her neck, and passed right to left through
    her body, tearing her warm-ups, causing her tennis shoes
    to explode, and lifting her two feet into the air.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in southern Texas produced wind gusts to
    116 mph near Quemado. Thunderstorms in New York State
    produced 5.01 inches of rain in 24 hours at Buffalo, an
    all-time record for that location, and produced an inch
    of rain at Bath PA. Fairbanks AK soared to 92 degrees,
    a record for the date.
    In 1988 Sixty-five cities in twenty-four states reported record
    high temperatures for the date. Tucson AZ reported an
    all-time record high of 114 degrees, surpassing the
    previous record of 112 degrees established a day earlier.
    Highs of 98 at Pittsburgh PA and 100 at Baltimore MD tied
    records for the month of June.
    In 1989 Record cold temperatures were reported in the High Plains
    Region. Rapid City SD reported a record low of 39
    degrees in contrast to their record high of 102 degrees
    on the 20th.
    In 2003 Tornadoes, hail up to 6 1/2 inches in diameter, and up to
    a foot of rain pounded southern Nebraska and northern
    Kansas. Four tornadoes struck in and around Deshler, KS,
    about 75 miles southwest of Lincoln...causing heavy damage.
    In Aurora, the huge hail dug craters in peoples yards, and
    the largest hailstone was just 1/8 of an inch smaller than
    the one that hit Coffeyville, KS in 1970. Most of the hail
    averaged 4 1/2 inches in diameter. Ten miles east of
    Deshler, in Hebron, radar estimated from 6 to 13 inches of
    rain, resulting in widespread flooding.

    In 1902 The temperature at Volcano Springs CA soared to 129
    degrees to set a June record for the U.S.
    In 1944 Four tornadoes killed 153 persons and caused five million
    dollars damage in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and
    Maryland. The tornadoes formed during the evening and
    moved southeastward along parallel paths flattening
    everything in their way. The town of Shinnston WV
    was leveled, and was left with the majority of the
    casualities. Until that time it was believed that
    damaging tornadoes did not travel across mountainous
    terrain.
    In 1957 A few miles west of Fort Stockton TX, softball size hail
    injured 21 persons unable to find shelter, mostly farm
    laborers. Some livestock were killed.
    In 1969 In Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee, a wall of water rising
    to 7 feet tumbled, swirled and crushed houses, vehicles,
    and street pavement.
    In 1987 A massive hailstorm hit eastern Colorado causing an
    estimated 60 to 70 million dollars damage. At La Junta
    CO, hail as large as softballs caused 37 million dollars
    damage.

    eastern U.S. deluged New Castle County DE with 2.5 inches
    of rain in one hour.
    In 2012 Tropical Storm Debby formed in the Gulf Of Mexico, and
    became the earliest 4th storm in the Atlantic Basin on
    record...surpassing Hurricane Dennis of 2005, which
    became a tropical storm on July 5, 2005.
    In 2014 In Arkansas, from 2pm to 11pm, there were nearly 6300
    cloud to ground lightning strikes in Arkansas. In Pulaski
    County, between 5pm and 8pm, there were nearly 500 strikes.
    The Searcy airport measured 1.10 inches of rain in only 11

    In 1816 The cold weather of early June finally gave way to
    several days of 90 degree heat in Massachusetts,
    including a reading of 99 degrees at Salem.
    In 1924 Six men at a rock quarry south of Winston-Salem NC sought
    shelter from a thunderstorm. The structure chosen
    contained a quantity of dynamite. Lightning struck a
    near-by tree causing the dynamite to explode. The men
    were killed instantly.
    In 1951 Twelve inches of hail broke windows and roofs, and dented
    automobiles, causing more than fourteen million dollars
    damage. The storm plowed 200 miles from Kingmand County
    KS into Missouri, with the Wichita area hardest hit. It
    was the most disastrous hailstorm of record for the state
    of Kansas.
    In 1952 Thunderstorms produced a swath of hail 60 miles long and
    3.5 miles wide through parts of Hand, Beadle, Kingsbury,
    Miner and Jerauld counties in South Dakota. Poultry and
    livestock were killed, and many persons were injured.
    Hail ten inches in circumference was reported at Huron SD.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms spawned six tornadoes in eastern Colorado.
    Baseball size hail was reported near Yoder CO, and
    thunderstorm winds gusting to 92 mph derailed a train
    near Pratt KS. The town of Gould OK was soaked with
    nearly an inch and a half of rain in just ten minutes.
    In 1988 Forty-three cities reported record high temperatures for

    Reno NV, and 106 at Winnemucca NV were records for the
    month of June. Highs of 98 at Logan UT and 109 at Rapid
    City SD equalled June records. Lightning killed twenty-
    one cows near Conway SC.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing along a warm front produced
    severe weather from Colorado and New Mexico to Kansas and
    Nebraska. Thunderstorms spawned seven tornadoes, and
    produced wind gusts to 80 mph at Wood River NE, and hail
    three inches in diameter at Wheeler KS.
    In 2001 A freak hailstorm struck Denver, Colorado...with many
    reports of golfball sized hail. Many aircraft at the
    Denver International Airport suffered severe damage.
    In 2003 Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes raked the upper
    Midwest, with widespread damage. Buffalo, Lake, MN,
    about 70 miles west of Minneapolis, MN, was the hardest
    hit...with a church, a grain elevator, and several
    homes being damaged or destroyed. A 40 foot pine tree,
    with its roots still attached, was seen 'pirouetting
    in the sky, 200 feet in the air' from a tornado.
    Damage also occured in Manchester, South Dakota.
    In 2010 Hurricane Celia becomes a Category 5 Hurricane in the
    Eastern Pacific with 160 mph winds. This ties her with
    the strongest Eastern Pacific Hurricane on record in
    June...with Hurricane Ava of 1973.

    In 1888 Residents of New York suffered through a record heat
    wave. Daily average temperatures were above 80 degrees
    for fourteen straight days. The heat wave was a sharp

    which buried the city under nearly two feet of snow.
    In 1977 "The Human Lightning Conductor", park ranger Roy C.
    Sullivan, was struck by lightning for the seventh
    time. He was first hit in 1942, then again in 1970,

    In 1957 Hurricane Audrey smashed ashore at Cameron LA drowning
    390 persons in the storm tide, and causing 150 million
    dollars damage in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
    Audrey left only a brick courthouse and a cement-block
    icehouse standing at Cameron, and when the waters settled
    in the town of Crede, only four buildings remained. The
    powerful winds of Audrey tossed a fishing boat weighing
    78 tons onto an off-shore drilling platform. Winds along
    the coast gusted to 105 mph. Oil rigs off the Louisiana

    commenced. During the last two weeks of the month
    extreme heat claimed 679 lives in Michigan, including
    300 in Detroit alone.
    In 1941 A prolonged heat wave over Washington State finally came
    to an end. Lightning from untimely thunderstorms was
    responsible for 598 forest fires.
    In 1952 Thunderstorms helped the temperature at Key West FL to dip
    to 69 degrees, to equal their July record established on
    the first of July in 1923.
    In 1957 On a warm and sunny day at Wilmington DE, with a high of
    86 degrees, a dust devil suddenly appeared. It tore most
    the roof off one house, and stripped shingles from a
    neighboring house. A TV aerial was toppled, and clothes
    were blown off clothes lines.
    In 1987 Slow moving thunderstorms caused flooding on the
    Guadalupe River in Texas resulting in tragic loss of
    life. A bus and van leaving a summer youth camp stalled
    near the rapidly rising river, just west of the town of
    Comfort, and a powerful surge of water swept away
    43 persons, mostly teenagers. Ten drowned in the flood-
    waters. Most of the others were rescued from tree tops
    by helicopter.
    In 1988 A dozen cities in the eastern U.S., and six others in
    California, reported record high temperatures for the
    date. Downtown San Francisco CA, with a high of
    103 degrees, obliterated their previous record high
    of 82 degrees. Philadelphia PA reported a record five
    straight days of 100 degree heat, and Baltimore MD
    reported a record eight days of 100 degree weather for
    the year. Afternoon and evening thunderstorms produced
    severe weather along the Middle Atlantic Coast, and over
    southern New England.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from South Dakota
    to Lousiana, with 126 reports of large hail and damaging
    winds during the day and night. Thunderstorms in
    Nebraska produced hail four inches in diameter in
    Frontier County, and at North Platte, causing millions of
    dollars damage to crops in Frontier County.
    Thunderstorms in Oklahoma produced wind gusts to 90 mph
    at Peggs. Tahlequah OK was drenched with 5.25 inches of
    rain.
    In 2010 A tornado struck Mayagues, Puerto Rico, causing injuries,
    damage, and power outages.

    In 1889 A cloudburst in West Virginia along the small creeks in
    Wirt, Jackson and Wood counties claimed twenty lives.
    Rockport WV reported nineteen inches of rain in two hours
    and ten minutes that Thursday evening. Tygart Creek rose
    22 feet in one hour, and villages were swept away on
    Tygart, Slate, Tucker, and Sandy Creeks.
    In 1942 A record deluge occurred at Smethport in northern
    Pennsylvania, with 30.7 inches in just six hours. The
    downpours and resultant flooding in Pennsylvania were
    devastating.
    In 1986 One of the most "photo-genic" tornadoes touched down in
    the northern suburbs of Minneapolis MN during the late
    afternoon. The very slow moving tornado actually
    appeared live on the evening news by way of an aerial
    video taken by the KARE-TV helicopter crew. The tornado,
    unlike most, was quite the prima donna, staying visible
    to tens of thousands of persons for thirty minutes. It
    was moderate in intensity, with winds of 113-157 mph, and
    caused 650 thousand dollars damage; but no injuries.
    In 1987 Cool weather prevailed in the western U.S. Seven cities
    reported record low temperatures for the date, including
    Alamosa CO with a reading of 38 degrees. The low of 52
    degrees at Bakersfield CA was a record for July. Up to
    eight inches of snow covered the Northern Sierra Nevada
    Range of California from a storm the previous day.
    During that storm, winds gusting to 52 mph at Slide
    Mountain NV produced a wind chill reading of 20 degrees
    below zero. Susanville CA reached 17 degrees that
    previous day, Blue Canyon CA dipped to a July record of
    36 degrees, and the high of 44 degrees at Klamath Falls
    OR smashed their previous record for July by ten degrees.
    In 1988 Sweltering heat continued in California, with record
    highs of 111 at Redding and 112 at Sacramento. Death
    Valley CA hit 127 degrees. Late afternoon and evening
    thunderstorms in the Central Plains Region produced
    baseball size hail at Kimball NE, wind gusts to 79 mph at
    Colby KS, and six inches of rain near Lexington NE.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in Oklahoma,
    northern Texas and Arkansas during the afternoon, and
    into the night. Thunderstorms produced baseball size
    hail at Stamford TX, and wind gusts to 92 mph near
    Throckmorton TX. Record heat continued in the
    southwestern U.S. Phoenix AZ reported a record high of
    115 degrees, and at Midland TX, a 111 degree reading was
    second only to their all-time record high of 112 degrees
    established sixteen days earlier.
    In 2011 Less than 2 weeks after a massive dust storm enveloped
    the Phoenix, Arizona area, a second storm crossed the
    area, with high wind, low visibility, and damage in
    some areas.

    In 1886 A hurricane from the Gulf of Mexico crossed Florida
    causing great damage from Cedar Keys to Jacksonville.
    In 1960 Cow Creek and Greenland Ranch in Death Valley CA reported
    morning lows of 102 degrees. Afternoon highs that day
    were 126 and 124 degrees, respectively. The coolest low

    In 1974 A severe thunderstorm with winds to 80 mph and up to two
    inches of rain washed out four to five foot deep sections
    of roadway in Lake Havasu City AZ. Three persons in a
    station wagon died as it was carried 3000 feet down a
    wash by a ten foot wall of water.
    In 1977 Thunderstorms produce torrential rains over parts of
    southwestern Pennsylvania. Some places receive more than
    twelve inches in a seven hour period. The heavy rains
    cause flash flooding along streams resulting in
    widespread severe damage. The cloudburst floods
    Johnstown with up to ten feet of water resulting in
    76 deaths, countless injuries, and 424 million dollars
    damage.
    In 1987 Fifteen cities in the western and the southeastern U.S.
    reported record low temperatures for the date, including
    Winnemucca NV with a reading of 33 degrees. Flagstaff AZ
    reported a record low of 34 degrees. Afternoon and
    evening thunderstorms produced severe weather in New York
    State and New Jersey. High winds and hail two inches in
    diameter injured two persons and caused consdierable
    damage to crops in the Pine Island area of central New
    York State.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms in Nebraska produced more than five inches
    of rain at Red Cloud, including two inches in fifteen

    produced 4.95 inches of rain in twelve hours east of
    Muncie. Eight cities in the southwestern U.S. reported
    record high temperatures for the date, including Las
    Vegas NV with a reading of 115 degrees, and Phoenix AZ
    with a high of 116 degrees. The low that night at
    Phoenix of 93 degrees was the warmest of record for that
    location.
    In 2003 Severe thunderstorms once again raked Arkansas, with more
    reports of hail and wind damage. Billboards were blown down
    near Mountain Pine, AR and Pearcy, AR. A gas line ruptured
    in Malvern, AR, causing a fire. Thunderstorms also brought
    flooding rains to Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana...on into
    New England. Storm totals from 4 to 8 inches or more of
    rain were common. (19th-22nd)
    In 2012 Lightning struck a home in Louisville, Kentucky, setting it
    ablaze, and killing 2 people. Severe thunderstorms that
    pushed through the area included winds that topped more
    than 60 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
    The roof of Louisville's Crowne Plaza Hotel was partially
    torn off, sending debris onto vehicles in the parking lot
    below. In Arkansas, thunderstorms were prolific lightning
    producers. At one time, over 5,000 people in Pulaski County
    were without power.

    (50 wrecked ships, 4000 drowned men) than to the English.
    In 1930 The temperature at Washington D.C. soared to an all-time
    record of 106 degrees. The next day Millsboro reached
    110 degrees to set a record for the state of Delaware.
    July 1930 was one of the hottest and driest summers in
    the U.S., particularily in the Missouri Valley where
    severe drought conditions developed. Toward the end of
    the month state records were set for Kentucky with 114
    degrees, and Mississippi with 115 degrees.

    that three month period virtually wiped out a 16.82 inch
    deficit which had been building since drought conditions
    began in 1985. Thunderstorms in central Indiana deluged
    Lebanon with 6.50 inches of rain in twelve hours, and
    thunderstorms over Florida produced wind gusts to 84 mph

    from the lightning bolt was passed from one animal to
    another.
    In 1986 Hurricane Estelle passed 120 miles south of the Hawaiian
    Islands creating a ten to twenty foot surf. The large
    swells resulted from a combination of high tides, a full
    moon, and 50 mph winds. The hurricane also deluged Oahu
    Island with up to 6.86 inches of rain on the 24th and
    25th of the month.

    of Massachusetts. Fifty-two persons drowned, or were
    killed by the impact.
    In 1986 Tremendous hailstones pounded parts of South Dakota
    damaging crops, buildings and vehicles. Hail piled two
    feet deep at Black Hawk and northern Rapid City. Hail an
    inch and a quarter in diameter fell for 85 minutes near
    Miller and Huron, piling up to depths of two feet.
    In 1987 Sixteen cities in the eastern U.S. reported record high
    temperatures for the date. Beckley WV equalled their all-
    time record high of 91 degrees, established just the
    previous day. It marked their fourth day in a row of
    90 degree heat, after hitting 90 degrees just twice in
    the previous 25 years of records. The water temperature
    of Lake Erie at Buffalo NY reached 79 degrees,
    the warmest reading in 52 years of records.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from central Kansas
    to western Kentucky and southern Illinois during the day.
    Thunderstorms produced tennis ball size hail at Union MO,
    and winds gusts to 65 mph at Sedalia MO. Five cities in
    Washington and Oregon reported record high temperatures
    for the date. Medford OR hit 107 degrees.
    In 1989 Early afternoon thunderstorms over west central Missouri

    In 1819 Twin cloudbursts of fifteen inches struck almost
    simultaneously at Catskill NY and Westfield MA.
    Flash flooding resulted in enormous erosion.
    In 1873 A Maine tornado took a life indirectly by knocking out a
    bridge during the day. Later, a train plunged into the river
    at dark.
    In 1943 Tishomingo OK baked in the heat as the mercury soared to
    121 degrees, a state record.
    In 1960 The temperature at Salt Lake City UT hit 107 degrees, an
    all-time record high for that location.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced hail
    two inches in diameter in McHenry County IL, and wind
    gusts to 70 mph at Auburn ME. A wind gust of 90 mph was
    recorded at Blairstown NJ before the anemometer broke.
    The high winds were associated with a small tornado. The
    record high of 88 degrees at Beckley WV was their sixth
    in a row.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced large hail and damaging winds
    in the MIddle Atlantic Coast Region, and in the south
    central U.S. Eight cities in the northwestern and north
    central U.S. reported record high temperatures for the
    date. Salem OR hit 103 degrees.
    In 1989 Morning thunderstorms produced heavy rain in southeastern
    Texas, with more than three inches reported at the
    Widllife Refuge in southwestern Chambers County. Evening
    thunderstorms produced severe weather in Montana, with

    from Maine to Minnesota reported record high temperatures
    for the date, including Newark NJ with a reading of 99
    degrees.
    In 2012 Severe weather occurred across Arkansas, as well as from
    the Ohio Valley into New England. In Arkansas, 4000 cloud
    to ground lightning strikes were noted between 6pm and 7pm
    Central Time. Entergy reported over 10,000 customers
    were without power from the storms. In an hour, Newport got
    1.03 inches of rain, with .46" of that falling in just six
    minutes, and they also measured a wind gust of 64 mph.

    wind damage across Arkansas. In the northeast U.S., a woman
    in Pennsylvania was killed as a tree crushed a woman in her
    car, as she sought shelter at a campsite. In Brooklyn, NY,
    a 61 year old man died after lightning struck a church,
    sending scaffolding crashing down on him. Possible
    tornadoes occurred in Elmira, NY, and in Brookville, PA.
    Several people were trapped inside a home in Vestal, NY,
    because of downed trees. Damage was also reported in
    Binghamton, NY...and there were extensive power outages;
    with over 100,000 in Pennsylvania, and 95,000 in New York
    without electricity, due to the storms.

    In 1926 A hurricane came inland near Daytona Beach FL. The
    hurricane caused 2.5 million dollars damage in eastern
    Florida, including the Jacksonville area.
    In 1939 The temperature at Lewiston ID hit 117 degrees to
    establish an all-time record high for that location.
    In 1943 On a whim, and flying a single engine AT-6, Lieutenant
    Ralph O' Hair and Colonel Duckworth were the first to fly
    into a hurricane. It started regular Air Force flights
    into hurricanes.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in Minnesota spawned a tornado which moved
    in a southwesterly direction for a distance of thirty
    miles across Rice and Goodhue counties. Trees were
    uprooted and tossed about like toys, and a horse lifted
    by the tornado was observed sailing horizontally through
    the air. Thunderstorms drenched La Crosse WI with 5.26
    inches of rain, their second highest 24 hour total of
    record.
    In 1988 Hot weather prevailed in the north central U.S.
    Williston ND reported a record high of 108 degrees.

    U.S., and in southeastern Texas. Richland County SC was
    soaked with up to 5.5 inches of rain.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced locally heavy rains in the
    southwestern U.S. Yuma AZ experienced their most severe
    thunderstorm of record. Strong thunderstorm winds, with
    unofficial gusts as high as 95 mph, reduced visibilities
    to near zero in blowing dust and sand. Yuma got nearly
    as much rain in one hour as is normally received in an
    entire year. The storm total of 2.55 inches of rain was
    a record 24 hour total for July. Property damage due to
    flash flooding and high winds was in the millions.
    Thunderstorms produced severe weather from Wisconsin and
    northern Illinois to New England, with 103 reports of

    In 1819 A small but intense hurricane passed over Bay Saint Louis
    MS. The hurricane was considered the worst in fifty
    years. Few houses were left standing either at Bay Saint
    Louis or at Pass Christian, and much of the Mississippi
    coast was desolate following the storm. A U.S. cutter
    was lost along with its thirty-nine crew members. The
    storm struck the same area that was hit 150 years later
    by Hurricane Camille.
    In 1898 A severe hailstorm pummeled Chicago with 11 ounce stones.
    Many people were injured not by hail, but by runaway horses.
    In 1930 The temperature at Greensburg KY soared to 114 degrees to
    set a state record.
    In 1934 The temperature at Grofino ID climbed to 118 degrees to
    establish a record for Idaho.
    In 1952 A severe storm with hail up to an inch and a half in
    diameter broke windows, ruined roofs, and stripped trees
    of leaves near Benson AZ. The temperature dropped to 37
    degrees, as hail was three to four inches deep, with
    drifts 46 inches high.
    In 1986 Severe thunderstorms moving out of South Dakota across
    Iowa produce high winds which derailed eighteen piggyback
    trailer cars of a westbound freight train near Boone IA.
    Sixteen of the cars fell 187 feet into the Des Moines
    River. The thunderstorms also spawned a number of
    tornadoes, including one which caused fifty million
    dollars damage at Sloan, near Sioux City IA.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms in Nevada produced wind gusts to 70 mph at
    Searchlight, reducing visibilities to near zero in
    blowing dust and sand. Thunderstorms in Montana drenched
    Lonesome Lake with 3.78 inches of rain.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms drenched Wilmington NC with 3.33 inches of
    rain, bringing their monthly total 14.46 inches. Seven
    cities in Michigan and Minnesota reported record high
    temperatures for the date. Marquette MI hit 99 degrees,
    and the record high of 94 degrees at Flint MI was their
    tenth of the month.
    In 1989 Afternoon thunderstorms produced large hail and damaging
    winds in Massachusetts. Early evening thunderstorms over
    Florida produced wind gusts to 68 mph at Fort Myers, and
    evening thunderstorms in South Dakota produced nearly two
    inches of rain in twenty minutes at Pierpoint.

    In 1898 The temperature at Prineville OR soared to 119 degrees to
    establish a state record, which was tied on the 10th of
    August at Pendleton.
    In 1905 Heavy rain in southwestern Connecticut caused a dam
    break, and the resulting flood caused a quarter of
    a million dollars damage at Bridgeport. As much as
    eleven inches of rain fell prior to the flood.
    In 1981 Fifty cattle, each weighing 800 pounds, were killed by
    lightning near Vance AL. The lightning struck a tree and
    then spread along the ground killing the cattle.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from Minnesota to
    Indiana and Illinois. A thunderstorm at Janesville WI
    produced wind gusts to 104 mph which flipped over two
    airplanes, and blew another 300 feet down the runway.
    The northeastern U.S. experienced some relief from the
    heat. Nine cities reported record low temperatures for
    the date, including Saint Johnsbury VT with a reading of
    42 degrees. Barnet VT reported a morning low of
    33 degrees, with frost on vegetation.
    In 1988 Afternoon and evening thunderstorms produced severe
    weather in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Hail three inches in
    diameter was reported south of Saint Cloud MN. Hot
    weather prevailed in the western U.S. Fresno CA reported
    a record thirteen straight days of 100 degree heat.
    In 1989 Morning thunderstorms in the Upper Midwest produced more
    than five inches of rain west of Virgil SD. Afternoon
    and evening thunderstorms deluged the foothills and
    adjacent plains of Colorado with heavy rain. Rains of
    six to seven and a half inches fell in eight hours north
    of Greeley. Hail and heavy rain caused several million
    dollars damage in Weld County.
    In 2003 Monsoon rains triggered landslides, snapped electricity
    cables, and inundated a large part of South Asia. The
    heaviest 1-day rain in 25 years pummeled Karachi,
    Pakistan, with 4 inches of rain, leaving 14 dead.

    In 1954 Mount Rainier in Washington State was still covered with
    sixteen inches of snow at the 5500 foot level following
    a big snow season.
    In 1985 A nearly stationary thunderstorm deluged Cheyenne WY with
    rain and hail. Six inches of rain fell in six hours
    producing the most damaging flash flood of record for the
    state. Two to five feet of hail covered the ground
    following the storm, which claimed twelve lives, and
    caused 65 million dollars property damage.
    In 1986 A powerful thunderstorm produced 100 mph winds and large
    hail in eastern Kansas and southwestern Missouri causing
    71 million dollars damage, and injuring nineteen persons.
    It was one of the worst thunderstorms of record for
    Kansas. Crops were mowed to the ground in places and
    roofs blown off buildings along its path, 150 miles long
    and 30 miles wide, from near Abilene to southeast of
    Pittsburg.
    In 1987 Record heat gripped parts of the Midwest. A dozen cities
    reported record high temperatures for the date, including
    Lincoln NE with a reading of 105 degrees, Moline IL with
    a high of 103 degrees, and Burlington IA with a reading
    of 102 degrees.
    In 1988 Two dozen cities in the Upper Midwest reported record
    high temperatures for the date, including La Crosse WI
    with a reading of 105 degrees. Highs of 103 degrees at
    Milwaukee WI and South Bend IN were records for the month
    of August.
    In 1989 Hurricane Chantal made landfall along the Upper Texas
    coast about sunrise. Chantal deluged parts of Galveston
    Island and southeastern Texas with 8 to 12 inches of
    rain. Unofficial totals ranged up to twenty inches.
    Winds gusted to 82 mph at Galveston, and reached 76 mph
    in the Houston area. Tides were 5 to 7 feet high. The

    In 1954 Severe thunderstorms produced golf ball size hail for
    thirty minutes in north central Kansas. One drift
    measured 200 feet long, seventy feet wide and three feet
    deep.
    In 1975 Record heat gripped New England. Afternoon highs of 104
    degrees at Providence RI, and 107 degrees at Chester MA
    and New Bedford MA, established state records. The heat
    along the coast of Maine was unprecedented, with highs of
    101 degrees at Bar Harbor and 104 degrees at Jonesboro.
    In 1987 Hot weather continued in the central U.S. Fifteen cities
    reported record high temperatures for the date, including
    Concordia KS with a reading of 106 degrees, and Downtown
    Kansas City MO with a high of 105 degrees. Evening
    thunderstorms produced severe weather in the Ohio Valley
    and the north central U.S. Thunderstorms in South Dakota

    In 1885 A tornado hit Philadelphia and Camden along its eight
    mile path.
    In 1970 Hurricane Celia struck the coast of Texas producing wind
    gusts to 161 mph at Corpus Christi, and estimated wind
    gusts of 180 mph at Arkansas Pass. The hurricane was the
    most destructive of record along the Texas coast causing
    454 million dollars damage, and also claimed 11 lives.
    In 1987 A severe thunderstorm moved across Cheyenne WY about mid
    afternoon. The thunderstorm produced hailstones up to
    two inches in diameter causing more than 37 million
    dollars damage. The eastern U.S. sweltered in the heat.
    A dozen cities reported record high temperatures for the
    date, including Paducah KY with a reading of 102 degrees.
    Beckley WV established an all-time record high of 93
    degrees.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a slow moving cold
    front produced severe weather from the Central High
    Plains to the Upper Great Lakes Region. Thunderstorms
    around Fort Collins CO produced wind gusts to 74 mph
    along with marble size hail. Sixteen persons were
    injured in the storm, most of whom were accidently locked
    out of their office building, having evacuated it when
    the fire alarm went off, apparently triggered by
    lightning.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms representing what remained of Hurricane
    Chantal drenched Wichita KS with 2.20 inches of rain
    in four hours during the early morning. Thunderstorms
    developing in the north central U.S. during the afternoon
    produced wind gusts to 85 mph at Baudette MN, and
    softball size hail at Lake Kabetogama, during the
    vening. Jamestown ND reported a record hot afternoon
    high of 103 degrees.
    In 2004 (3rd-4th) Hurricane Alex, with 100 mph winds, lashed the
    outer banks of the Carolinas. However, the center of the
    storm remained offshore, sparing the outer banks from more
    damage. Much of the same area was still recovering from
    Hurricane Isabel that struck last year. Alex strengthened
    to a peak of 120 mph on the 4th, but by then, the hurricane
    was only a threat to shipping. However, he became the
    strongest major hurricane on record to develop north of
    38 degrees north latitude, with Hurricane Ellen in 1973
    coming in second at 115 mph. These are the only 2 storms
    to reach major hurricane strength at such a high latitude.
    In 2011 Little Rock, Arkansas set an all time record high
    temperature, with a reading of 114 degrees. The National
    Weather Service in North Little Rock tied its all time
    record high, with a reading of 111 degrees. Several
    record high temperatures were set across Arkansas, and
    Newport reached a scalding heat index of 126 degrees.

    In 1882 A vivid aurora was visible from Oregon to Maine, down the
    east coast as far as Mayport FL, and inland as far as
    Wellington KS. Observers at Louisville KY noted "merry
    dancers" across the sky. Observers at Saint Vincent MN
    noted it was probably the most brilliant ever seen at
    that location.
    In 1930 The temperature at Moorefield WV soared to 112 degrees to
    establish a state record, having reached 110 degrees the
    previous day. Widespread drought after April of that
    year caused some towns to haul water for domestic use,
    and many manufacturing plants were barely operational.
    In 1961 Spokane WA reached an all-time record high of 108 degrees.
    Kalispell MT set an all-time record with a reading of 105
    degrees.
    In 1980 A record forty-two consecutive days of 100 degree heat
    finally came to an end at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.
    July 1980 proved to be the hottest month of record with
    a mean temperature of 92 degrees. There was just one day
    of rain in July, and there was no measurable rain in
    August. There were 18 more days of 100 degree heat in
    August, and four in September. Hot weather that summer
    contributed to the deaths of 1200 people nationally, and
    losses from the heat across the country were estimated at
    twenty billion dollars.
    In 1987 A cold front brought relief from the heat to a large part
    of the Midwest, while hot weather continued in the south
    central and eastern U.S. Morning thunderstorms in
    Nebraska produced 8.71 inches of rain at Dalton, and hail
    up to three inches in diameter, which accumulated up to
    four feet deep near the town of Dix.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from eastern Iowa
    to Lower Michigan during the afternoon and evening hours,
    producing golf ball size hail and spawning several
    tornadoes. A thunderstorm at Maquoketa IA produced wind
    gusts to 75 mph.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from eastern
    Nebraska and northeastern Kansas to the Great Lakes
    Region, with 150 reports of large hail or damaging winds
    during the afternoon, evening, and night. Thunderstorms
    produced tennis ball size hail at Claremont MN, and wind
    gusts to 75 mph at Milwaukee WI. Thunderstorms
    representing what once was Hurricane Chantal produced
    five inches of rain at Grant MI, and deluged Chicago IL
    with more than three inches of rain in three hours.
    In 2000 Alberto, the first tropical system of the 2000 Hurricane
    Season formed in the Atlantic, just west of the Cape
    Verde Islands. It would go from a Tropical Storm to a
    Hurricane three times...during its erratic path...before
    being absorbed by a large extratropical system on the
    23rd...becoming the 3rd longest Atlantic tropical
    system, and the longest August Atlantic tropical system.
    In 2004 Hurricane Alex becomes the strongest major hurricane to
    develop north of 38 degrees north latitude, with 120 mph
    surpassing winds. This surpasses Hurricane Ellen back in
    in 1973, with 115 mph winds. Alex and Ellen are the only
    two hurricanes on record to reach major hurricane status
    (category 3 or higher) at such a high latitude.
    In 2009 Severe thunderstorms brought flooding rain to much of the
    Ohio and Tennessee Valley region. Louisville, Kentucky,
    was inundated by 6 inches of rain in 90 minutes. Severe
    flooding occurred on the University Of Louisville campus,
    with the library and other buildings sustaining damage.
    In 2012 The formation of Tropical Storm Florence in the Atlantic
    Ocean marks the third earliest occasion, that the sixth
    named storm has occurred in the Atlantic Basin, behind
    only behind 1936 and 2005.
    In 2016 Hurricane Earl, the first hurricane in the Caribbean since
    Hurricans Sandy of 2012, made landfall near Belize City,
    Belize, as a Category 1 storm with 80 mph winds near 2am
    EDT. Earl was the strongest hurricane to hit Belize since
    Hurricane Richard on Oct. 23, 2010, which made landfall
    as a Category 2 hurricane with 100 mph winds.

    In 1843 A spectacular cloudburst near Philadelphia turned the
    small creeks and streams entering the Delaware River into
    raging torrents. As much as sixteen inches of rain fell
    in just three hours. Flooding destroyed thirty-two
    county bridges, and caused nineteen deaths. It is
    believed that several small tornadoes accompanied the
    torrential rains, one of which upset and sank more than
    thirty barges on the Schuylkill River.
    In 1924 The SS Frankenfels measured the sea surface of the Persian
    Gulf at 96 degrees, possibly the highest ever observed.
    In 1961 The temperature at Ice Harbor Dam WA soared to
    118 degrees to equal the state record established at
    Wahluke on the 24th of July in 1928. The afternoon high
    of 111 degrees at Havre MT was an all-time record for
    that location.
    In 1987 Severe thunderstorms raked eastern South Dakota.
    Thunderstorms spawned half a dozen tornadoes, and
    produced softball size hail at Bowdle, and wind gusts to
    90 mph south of Watertown. Hot weather continued in
    eastern Texas. Afternoon highs of 100 at Houston and 106
    at Waco equalled records for the date.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from Indiana and
    Lower Michigan to Pennsylvania and New York State during
    the day. Thunderstorms in Michigan produced wind gusts
    to 80 mph at Ashley, Hastings and Lennon.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in Oklahoma, and
    from Iowa to the Upper Ohio Valley, with 216 reports
    of large hail or damaging winds between early Saturday
    morning and early Sunday morning. Thunderstorms moving
    across Iowa about sunrise produced extremely high winds
    which caused ten million dollars damage to crops in
    Carroll and Greene Counties. Thunderstorm winds at
    Jefferson IA reached 102 mph. Afternoon thunderstorms
    produced tennis ball size hail at Bay Mills WI.
    In 2009 (5th-9th) After storming through the Phillippines and
    Taiwan, Typhoon Morakot slammed into four coastal
    provinces in China, causing severe flooding and
    mudslides across a wide area. Floodwaters were as high
    as 7 feet in portions of Taiwan.
    In 2011 Massive flash flooding in Charlotte, North Carolina,
    killed one person, forced the rescuing of trapped
    motorists, and the evacuations of at least two
    neighborhoods. The area received greater than 3 inches
    of rain, with some areas measuring 6 inches of rain.
    The flooding shut down parts of highways 77, 485, and
    85 for a time. One hotel lobby interior was turned into
    a waterfall, as heavy rain accumulated on the roof, and
    poured through light fixtures, collapsing a desktop
    size section of the ceiling.
    In 2012 Lightning struck and killed a NASCAR fan, and injured
    nine others in a parking lot outside the Pocono Raceway
    in Pennsylvania. Fans were warned by the PA announcer
    to take cover, as the thunderstorms approached. In
    Arkansas, between 5pm and 6pm, 5000 lightning strikes
    were observed, in a wide swath from Hope and Prescott in
    southwest Arkansas to between Carthage and Fordyce in
    south central Arkansas. Over 13,500 people from the Hot
    Springs area southward, were without power. As a severe
    storm collapsed over downtown Hot Springs, an 80 mph
    downburst winds damaged close to 100 structures. The
    temperature plunged from 105 degrees to the upper 70s
    in just a few short minutes.
    In 2013 An intense amount of lightning strikes were observed
    from thunderstorms across north Arkansas. A total of
    5413 strikes occurred from 9pm to 12 midnight, and
    there were about 12,000 power outages in Baxter County,
    due to the lightning.

    In 1890 Thunderstorms left four inches of hail covering the
    ground in Adair and Union Counties in Iowa. The hail
    drifted into six foot mounds, and in some places remained
    on the ground for twenty-six days.
    In 1918 Unusually hot weather began to overspread the Atlantic
    Coast States, from the Carolinas to southern New England.
    The temperature soared to an all-time record high of 106
    degrees at Washington D.C., and Cumberland and
    Keedysville hit 109 degrees to establish a state record
    for Maryland. Temperatures were above normal east of the
    Rockies that month, with readings much above normal in
    the Lower Missouri Valley. Omaha NE reached 110 degrees.
    In 1959 A bucket survey showed that thunderstorms dropped
    16.70 inches of rain on parts of Decatur County IA. The
    total was accepted as Iowa's 24 hour rainfall record.
    In 1986 Evening thunderstorms produced wind gusts to 100 mph at
    Winner SD damaging two hundred homes.
    In 1987 Afternoon thunderstorms deluged Milwaukee WI with
    6.84 inches of rain, including more than five inches in
    two hours, breaking all previous rainfall records for the
    city. Floodwaters were four feet deep at the Milwaukee
    County Stadium, and floodwaters filled the basement of
    the main terminal at the airport. Flooding caused 5.9
    million dollars damage, and claimed the life of one
    person. Death Valley CA reported a morning low of
    97 degrees. A midday thunderstorm deluged Birmingham AL
    with nearly six inches of rain in one hour.
    In 1988 Severe thunderstorms produced large hail and damaging
    winds in Pennsylvania and New York State. A cold front
    crossing the northwestern U.S. produced wind gusts to 66
    mph at Livingston MT.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front produced
    severe weather from northwestern Texas to the Southern
    Appalachians, and in the northeastern U.S. There were
    136 reports of large hail or damaging winds during the
    day and evening. Thunderstorms in the Southern Plains
    produced tennis ball size hail northwest of Buffalo OK,
    and wind gusts to 100 mph at Pampa TX.

    In 1904 A flash flood near Pueblo CO washed a train from the
    tracks killing 89 passengers. A bridge, weakened by the
    floodwaters sweeping through the valley below, gave way
    under the weight of the train dashing all but the
    sleeping cars into the torrent drowning the occupants.
    Rail service was frequently interrupted in the Rocky
    Mountain Region and southwestern U.S. that summer due to
    numerous heavy downpours which washed out the railroad
    beds delaying trains as much as five days.
    In 1918 Philadelphia PA established an all-time record with a
    high of 106 degrees. New York City experienced its
    warmest day and night with a low of 82 degrees and a high
    of 102 degrees. Highs of 108 degrees at Flemington NJ
    and Somerville NJ established state records for the month
    of August.
    In 1984 El Paso TX normally receives 1.21 inches of rain in
    August. They got it in forty-five minutes, with four
    more inches to boot, during a storm which left Downtown
    El Paso under five feet of water.
    In 1986 A rare outbreak of seven tornadoes occurred in New
    England. One tornado carved its way through Cranston RI
    and Providence RI causing twenty injuries. Rhode Island
    had not reported a tornado in twelve years, and three
    touched down in 24 hours.
    In 1987 Morning thunderstorms drenched Goldsboro NC with 3.37
    inches of rain. Late morning thunderstorms in Arizona
    produced dime size hail, wind gusts to 50 mph, and two
    inches of rain, at Sierra Vista.
    In 1988 A dozen cities in the central U.S. reported record high
    temperatures for the date, including Waco TX with a
    reading of 107 degrees. The record high of 88 degrees at
    Marquette MI was their 23rd of the year. Afternoon and
    evening thunderstorms produced severe weather in
    Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin, with wind gusts to 81
    mph reported at McCool NE.
    In 1989 Forty cities in the central U.S. reported record low
    temperatures for the date, including Valentine NE with a
    reading of 40 degrees, and Belcourt ND with a low of 37
    degrees. Martin SD was the cold spot in the nation with
    a morning low of 30 degrees. Unseasonably hot weather
    prevailed over Florida and Washington State, with record
    highs of 100 at Daytona Beach FL, 101 at Walla Walla WA,
    and 103 degrees at Hanford WA.
    In 2003 A tornado touched down in the Riviera Beach area of Palm
    Beach County, Florida. There was no warning of the
    tornado, which caused a Pepsi plant to lose part of its
    roof. Five hundred homes were damaged or destroyed. It
    skipped right over Interstate 95 at rush hour...amazingly,
    there were no injuries or fatalities from the tornado.
    In 2011 Scattered severe thunderstorms developed across Arkansas,
    with several reports of hail and wind damage. Golfball
    sized hail fell near Russell, Arkansas, and a 77 mph wind
    was recorded at Little Rock National Airport, from a
    severe thunderstorm moving through the area.

    first seen while far away.
    In 1936 The temperature soared to 114 degrees at Plain Dealing
    LA, and reached 120 degrees at Ozark AR, to establish
    record highs for those two states.
    In 1980 Hurricane Allen came ashore above Brownsville TX dropping
    fifteen inches of rain near San Antonio, and up to 20
    inches in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Tidal flooding

    tornadoes. Total damage from the storm was estimated at
    750 million dollars.
    In 1987 Unseasonably hot weather continued in the southeastern
    U.S. Ten cities in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina

    all the way to Ohio...770 miles in 14 hours. It flipped
    trucks, smashed a grain elevator, and produced numerous
    wind gusts over 100 mph in parts of Iowa. At Midway, IA,
    a gust to 112 mph was noted. There was extensive
    structural and tree damage about ten miles away in Cedar
    Rapids, IA. Incredibly, at least half of the city's trees
    were lost. The Warning Coordination Meteorologist (and
    twenty three year veteran) at the National Weather Service
    in the Quad Cities said this during an interview with a
    local television station: "I can't recall a similar
    incident. Usually the peak intensity is over relatively
    quickly. With this they just persisted and persisted."
    The state suffered large agricultural losses, with millions
    of acres of corn flattened. The storms also tore through
    Chicago, IL with 70 to 90 mph winds. Over a million power
    outages occurred in the two state area. One location in
    Iowa measured a gust to 140 mph, the equivalent of a
    category 4 hurricane.

    twenty-six days of 90 degree weather for the year,
    a total equal to that for the entire decade of the 1970s.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms were scattered across nearly every state in
    the Union by late in the day. Thunderstorms produced
    wind gusts to 75 mph at Fergus Falls MN, and golf ball
    size hail and wind gusts to 60 mph at Black Creek WI. In
    the Chicago area, seven persons at a forest preserve in
    North Riverside were injured by lightning.

    In 1831 A blue sun was widely observed in the southern states.
    The phenomena was believed to have pre-staged
    Nat Turner's slave uprising.
    In 1919 High winds and heavy rain struck the Middle Atlantic
    Coast Region. In New Jersey, winds gusted to 60 mph
    at Atlantic City, and nine inches of rain fell at
    Tuckerton. The wind and rain leveled crops and stripped
    trees of fruit causing several million dollars damage.
    In 1980 The afternoon high at New York City was just 89 degrees.
    But there were fifteen days of 90 degree heat during the
    month, their hottest August of record.
    In 1985 Hail larger than golf balls, driven by 70 mph winds,
    moved down crops, stripped trees, and broke windows, near
    Logan KS. Road graders cleared three foot drifts of hail
    on Kansas Highway 9 east of Logan.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms deluged the Central Gulf Coast States with
    torrential rains. Thunderstorms in Mississippi drenched
    Marion County with up to 15 inches of rain during the
    morning hours, with 12.2 inches reported at Columbia.
    Floodwaters swept cars away in the Lakeview subdivision
    of Columbia when the the Lakeview Dam broke. Flash
    flooding caused more than three million dollars damage in
    Marion County.
    In 1988 A dozen cities in the northeastern U.S. reported record
    high temperatures for the date. Lansing MI reported a
    record 35 days of 90 degree weather for the year, Detroit
    MI reported a record 37 days of 90 degree heat for the
    year, and Williamsport PA reported a record 38 days of
    90 degree weather for the year.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing in a tropical airmass over the
    northeastern U.S. soaked Connecticut and Massachusetts
    with 4 to 8 inches of rain over the weekend, between the
    11th and 13th of the month. Hartford CT received 7.70
    inches of rain.
    In 2004 (12th-15th) Florida became the target of a 1-2 tropical
    weather punch...with Tropical Storm Bonnie hitting
    Appalachicola with 50 mph winds at landfall...then,
    with major Hurricane Charley as a Category 4, with 145
    mph winds passing just to the west of Key West, and
    coming ashore near Fort Myers at Charlotte Harbor on
    the 13th. It was the first major hurricane to hit the
    Florida west coast since Hurricane Donna in 1960.
    Winds gusted to 127 mph at Punta Gorda, and to 105 mph
    at Orlando. Western Cuba was hit with 105 mph winds
    when Charley moved across. After crossing Florida, and
    weakening to a minimal hurricane, Charley moved north,
    hitting Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on the 14th. He
    moved up the east coast as a Tropical Storm, struck
    Long Island, NY, then finally dissipated off of the
    England coast on the 15th. Preliminary damage costs
    were at $15 billion, and over 2 million people across
    Florida alone, were without power. Tragically, many
    were left homeless, with many injuries and fatalities.
    Major theme parks across Florida shut down ahead of
    Charley...the first time that had been done since
    Hurricane Floyd skirted eastern Florida in 1999.

    In 1936 Temperatures across much of eastern Kansas soared above
    110 degrees. Kansas City MO hit an all-time record high
    of 113 degrees. It was one of sixteen consecutive days
    of 100 degree heat for Kansas City. During that summer
    there were a record 53 days of 100 degree heat, and
    during the three summer months Kansas City received just
    1.12 inches of rain.
    In 1987 Slow moving thunderstorms deluged northern and western
    suburbs of Chicago IL with torrential rains. O'Hare
    Airport reported 9.35 inches in 18 hours, easily
    exceeding the previous 24 hour record of 6.24 inches.
    Flooding over a five day period resulted in 221 million
    dollars damage. It was Chicago's worst flash flood
    event, particularly for northern and western sections of
    the city. Kennedy Expressway became a footpath for
    thousands of travelers to O'Hare Airport as roads were
    closed. The heavy rains swelled the Des Plaines River
    above flood stage, and many persons had to be rescued
    from stalled vehicles on flooded roads. (13th-14th)
    In 1988 Eighteen cities in the northeastern U.S. reported record
    high temperatures for the date, and the water temperature
    at Lake Erie reached a record 80 degrees. Portland ME
    reported a record fourteen straight days of 80 degree
    weather. Milwaukee WI reported a record 34 days of 90
    degree heat for the year. Afternoon and evening
    thunderstorms resulted in about fifty reports of severe
    weather in the northeastern U.S. One person was killed
    at Stockbridge MI when a tornado knocked a tree onto
    their camper.
    In 1989 Afternoon thunderstorms in Illinois soaked the town of
    Battendorf with 2.10 inches of rain in thirty minutes.
    Evening thunderstorms in Montana produced wind gusts to
    66 mph at Hobson.

    In 1787 Tornadoes were reported in Connecticut, Rhode Island,
    Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Wethersfield CT was
    hard hit by the tornado outbreak.
    In 1946 Saint Louis MO was deluged with a record 8.78 inches of
    rain in 24 hours.
    In 1967 The "sundance fire" in northern Idaho was started by
    lightning. Winds of 50 mph carried firebrands as much as
    ten miles in advance to ignite new fires, and as a
    result, the forest fire spread twenty miles across the
    Selkirk Mountains in just twelve hours, burning 56,000
    acres. The heat of the fire produced whirlwinds of flame
    with winds up to 300 mph which flung giant trees about
    like matchsticks.
    In 1985 Near Whitehall, New York, lightning struck a farmhand.
    En route to the hospital, his ambulance was also hit by
    lightning.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a sharp cold front
    produced severe weather in the Upper Midwest during the
    afternoon and evening hours, with Minnesota and eastern
    South Dakota hardest hit. A thunderstorm in west central
    Minnesota spawned a tornado at Eagle Lake which killed
    one person and injured eight others. A thunderstorm in
    eastern South Dakota produced softball size hail at
    Warner.
    In 1988 Thirty five cities in twenty states in the north central
    and northeastern U.S. reported record high temperatures
    for the date, including Lamoni IA and Baltimore MD, where
    the mercury hit 105 degrees. Temperatures 100 degrees or

    In 1989 Evening thunderstorms in eastern New Mexico produced wind
    gusts to 66 mph at Clovis. Evening thunderstorms in West
    Texas produced baseball size hail around Hereford,
    Dimmitt, Ware and Dalhart.
    In 2003 (9th-15th) Widespread flooding occurred across the eastern
    United States from Florida to Maine. Numerous reports of
    roads closed, roads and bridges washed out, mud and rock
    slides, vehicles stranded, and basement flooding were
    noted. Isolated evacuations occurred in North Carolina,
    Georgia, Ohio, and New Hampshire. Many areas got from 2
    to 3 inches of rain, while parts of West Virginia got
    over 7 inches of rain.

    In 1777 The Battle of Bennington, delayed a day by rain, was
    fought. The rain delayed British reinforcements, and
    allowed the Vermont Militia to arrive in time, enabling
    the Americans to win a victory by defeating two enemy
    forces, one at a time.
    In 1909 A dry spell began in San Bernardino County of southern
    California that lasted until the 6th of May in 1912,
    a stretch of 994 days! Another dry spell, lasting
    767 days, then began in October of 1912.

    Wisconsin and Lower Michigan. Thunderstorms in central
    Illinois produced wind gusts to 80 mph at Springfield
    which toppled two large beer tents at the state fair
    injuring 58 persons. Thunderstorms also drenched Chicago
    IL with 2.90 inches of rain, making August 1987 their
    wettest month of record.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing along a slow moving cold front
    produced severe weather from North Dakota to Lower

    In 1989 Late afternoon and evening thunderstorms in the Central
    High Plains Region produced golf ball size hail at
    La Junta CO, Intercanyon CO, and Custer SD. Afternoon
    thunderstorms over South Texas drenched Brownsville with
    2.60 inches of rain. Fair skies allowed viewing of the
    late evening full lunar eclipse from the Great Lakes
    Region to the Northern and Central Plains Region, and
    across much of the western third of the country.
    In 2003 Tropical Storm Erika made landfall with 70 mph winds
    about 60 miles south of Brownsville, TX. The region was
    just southwest of where Hurricane Claudette made
    landfall just a month earlier. Erika weakened to a heavy
    rain producing system over northern Mexico.

    In 1915 A hurricane hit Galveston TX with wind gusts to 120 mph
    and a twelve foot storm surge. The storm claimed
    275 lives, 42 on Glaveston Island, with most deaths due
    to drowning. Of 250 homes built outside the seawall
    (built after the catastrophic hurricane of 1900),
    just ten percent were left standing.
    In 1969 Camille, the second worst hurricane in U.S. history,
    smashed into the Mississippi coast. Winds gusted to 172
    mph at Main Pass Block LA, and to 190 mph near Bay Saint
    Louis MS. The hurricane claimed 256 lives, and caused
    1.3 billion dollars damage. Several ocean going ships
    were carried over seven miles inland by the hurricane.
    The hurricane produced winds to 200 mph, and a storm
    surge of 24.6 feet. Complete destruction occurred in
    some coastal areas near the eye of the hurricane.
    In 1987 Evening thunderstorms produced severe weather in the
    Northern and Central Plains Region. One thunderstorm
    spawned a tornado near Fairbury NE, along with baseball
    size hail and wind gusts to 100 mph, causing severe crop

    In 1925 During the late morning hours a severe hailstorm struck
    southeastern Iowa completely destroying crops along a
    path six to ten miles wide and 75 miles long. The hail
    also injured and killed poultry and livestock, and caused
    a total of 2.5 million dollars damage. The hailstorm
    flattened fields of corn to such an extent that many had
    to leave their farms in search of other work. It was one
    of the worst hailstorms of record for the nation.
    In 1983 Hurricane Alicia ravaged southeastern Texas. The
    hurricane caused more than three billion dollars property
    damage, making it one of the costliest hurricanes in the
    history of the U.S. Just thirteen persons were killed,
    but 1800 others were injured. The hurricane packed winds
    to 130 mph as it crossed Galveston Island, and spawned
    twenty-two tornadoes in less than 24 hours as it made
    landfall.
    In 1987 Thirteen cities in the eastern U.S. reported record high
    temperatures for the date, including Orlando FL with a

    Thunderstorms produced locally heavy rains in the
    Yellowstone Park area, causing fifteen mudslides.
    In 2011 Severe thunderstorms caused widespread damage at Omaha,
    Nebraska. At the airport, baseball sized hail damaged
    several planes, and portions of an airport concourse.
    The downburst winds of 100 mph pushed a jetway into a
    plane, injuring a pilot, and another pilot was injured
    after being struck by hail. Many vehicles at the airport
    also suffered hail damage. The airport was closed for a
    time, due to the severe weather, affecting over 2700
    passengers. Elsewhere, the third massive dust storm in
    months hit the Phoenix, Arizona area. This storm was
    as much as 60 miles wide and 4000 feet high. The airport
    was once again closed for a time. Numerous traffic
    accidents occurred due to the low visibility.

    In 1816 The growing season for corn was cut short as damaging
    frosts were reported from North Carolina to interior New
    England.
    In 1923 The temperature at Anchorage AK reached 82 degrees,
    a record for August for the location which was later tied
    on the 2nd in 1978.
    In 1987 A cold front lowered temperatures 20 to 40 degrees across
    the north central U.S., and produced severe thunderstorms
    in Ohio and Lower Michigan. An early morning
    thunderstorm near Sydney MI produced high winds which
    spun a car around 180 degrees.
    In 1988 Afternoon highs of 88 degrees at Astoria OR and 104 at
    Medford OR were records for the date, and the number of
    daily record highs across the nation since the first of
    June topped the 2000 mark.
    In 1989 Evening thunderstorms in the central U.S. produced golf
    ball size hail at May City IA, and wind gusts to 66 mph
    at Balltown IA. Lightning struck a barn in Fayette
    County IA killing 750 hogs. Evening thunderstorms
    in Montana produced wind gusts to 70 mph at Havre.
    In 1999 Hurricane Bret, which went from a category 1 to a
    category 4 hurricane in under 12 hours, slammed into
    the south Texas coast near Baffin Bay, with 140 mph
    winds, a 15 foot storm surge, and rainfall totals of
    over 30 inches in some areas. Corpus Christi, north of
    Bret...and Brownsville, south of Bret...missed the full
    force of the storm, but still had heavy rain and wind.

    the month. More than 100,000 acres burned.
    In 1987 A cold front brought autumn-like weather to the Northern
    and Central Plains Region. Afternoon highs were in the
    50s and 60s across parts of Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska
    that just two days earlier were in the 90s or above 100
    degrees. Thunderstorms produced locally heavy rain in
    New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced hail an inch in diameter, wind
    gusts to 64 mph, and 2.62 inches of rain at Tucson AZ
    resulting in three million dollars damage. Cool weather
    prevailed in the northeastern U.S. Hartford CT reported
    a record low of 42 degrees.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced heavy rain with flash flooding in
    West Virginia. Pickens WV reported 4.80 inches of rain

    In 1814 A tornado struck Washington, DC. While causing damage to
    much of the city, the damage blocked exit routes from
    invading British Troops that came into the city the day
    before. The torrential rains from the severe thunderstorms
    put out the raging fires that had been set by British
    troops the day before.
    In 1885 A severe hurricane struck South Carolina causing
    1.3 million dollars damage at Charleston.
    In 1940 New Jersey experienced its coldest August morning of
    record, with lows of 32 degrees at Layton and
    Charlotteburg.
    In 1987 Morning thunderstorms produced heavy rain in eastern
    Nebraska and southwestern Iowa. Stanton IA reported
    10.50 inches of rain. Water was reported up to the
    handle of automobiles west of Greenwood NE. Rainfall
    totals for a two day period ranged from 7 to 14 inches
    across southwestern Iowa. Crop damage was in the
    millions for both states. Subsequent flooding of streams
    in Iowa the last week of August caused millions of
    dollars damage to crops, as some streams crested ten feet
    above flood stage.
    In 1988 Seven cities in California reported record high
    temperatures for the date, including Sacramento with
    an afternoon reading of 104 degrees. Thunderstorms
    produced locally heavy rains in Arizona. Chino Valley
    was drenched with 2.50 inches of rain in just thirty
    minutes washing out a couple of streets in town.
    In 1989 Morning thunderstorms drenched Spencer IN with 4.10
    inches of rain in three hours causing extensive street
    flooding. Evening thunderstorms in eastern Kansas
    produced up to six inches of rain around Emporia, and
    four inches of rain in just forty-five minutes near
    Parsons, and also produced wind gusts to 70 mph at
    Lake Melvern.
    In 2017 Powerful Hurricane Harvey became a Category 4 hurricane
    with 130 mph winds prior to landfall at Rockport, Texas.
    It was the first Category 4 Hurricane to hit the U.S.
    since Charley struck western Florida in 2004...and the
    first Category 4 hurricane to hit Texas since Carla in
    1961. He was forecast to dump from 3 to 5 feet of rain
    Cfall in several areas of Texas and Louisiana, as the
    steering currents around him collapsed, and he would
    move very little in south Texas for several days.

    In 1883 Krakatoa Volcano exploded in the East Indies. The
    explosion was heard more than 2500 miles away, and every
    barograph around the world recorded the passage of the
    air wave, up to seven times. Giant waves, 125 feet high
    and traveling 300 mph, devastated everything in their
    path, hurling ashore coral blocks weighing up to 900
    tons, and killing more than 36,000 persons. Volcanic ash
    was carried around the globe in thirteen days producing
    blue and green suns in the tropics, and then vivid red
    sunsets in higher latitudes. The temperature of the
    earth was lowered one degree for the next two years,
    finally recovering to normal by 1888.
    In 1949 A hurricane made landfall at Delray Beach. Winds reached
    153 mph at the Jupiter Lighthouse before the anemometer
    failed. The hurricane caused 45 million dollars damage
    to crops. The hurricane also caught the Georgia and
    South Carolina coast resulting in another two million
    dollars damage.
    In 1965 Severe thunderstorms associated with the invasion of
    arctic air spawned tornadoes and produced 100 mph winds
    in the Chicago area.
    In 1976 A weak tornado touched down briefly in the Hockley Hills
    near Kiana AK, about 29 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
    In 1987 Showers and thunderstorms drenched northern Illinois
    during the morning and afternoon hours pushing August
    rainfall totals for Chicago, Moline and Peoria to new all-
    time highs for any month of the year. By the end of
    August, Chicago had received 17.10 inches of rain, which
    easily surpassed their previous record of 14.17 inches
    established in September 1961.
    In 1988 A dozen cities in Texas, Colorado and California reported
    record high temperatures for the date, including highs of
    100 at Pueblo CO, 106 at Wichita Falls TX, and 109 at
    Redding CA. Afternoon thunderstorms in Utah deluged the
    town of Beaver with more than an inch of rain in twenty
    minutes.
    In 1989 Anchorage AK was soaked with a steady rain, and the
    24 hour total of 4.12 inches smashed their previous
    24 hour precipitation total of 2.10 inches. It also
    pushed their rainfall total for the month past the
    previous August record.
    In 1992 Hurricane Andrew made its second US landfall west-southwest
    of Morgan City, Louisiana.
    In 2003 (23rd-27th) Starting as a Tropical Storm, Ignacio became
    the latest first hurricane for the season in the Eastern
    Pacific basin. At its peak, it had 105 mph winds, but
    drifted slowly toward Baja California, finally coming
    on the 26th as a minimal hurricane. Rainfall totals were
    over 20 inches in many places, with major flooding and
    mudslides across areas of Baja California and northwest
    Mexico, before dissipating over Baja California on the
    27th. Typhoon Krovanh hit the Chinese province of Hainan
    with heavy rains and strong winds, resulting in widespread
    flooding, damage, and injuries.

    hail and wind gusts to 70 mph at Saint Joseph MO.
    Thunderstorms in North Dakota deluged the town of Linton
    with six inches of rain in one hour.
    In 2011 (27th-28th) After lashing the Bahamas days earlier with
    120 mph winds, Hurricane Irene made landfall near Cape
    Lookout, North Carolina, with 85 mph winds. The next
    day, she made landfall near Little Egg Inlet, New Jersey,
    as a minimal hurricane (75 mph winds), and passed over
    New York City as a 65 mph Tropical Storm. Widespread
    damage, storm surge flooding, and tornadoes, occured in
    her path. Irene was only the second hurricane to hit New
    Jersey since 1851, and Vermont was particularly hard hit.

    In 1898 Torrents of rain accompanied by a furious wind upset the
    rain gage at Fort Mohave AZ. However, water in a wash
    tub set out on the mesa, clear of everything, measured
    eight inches after the 45 minute storm.
    In 1911 Saint George GA was deluged with 18.00 inches of rain in
    24 hours to establish a state record.
    In 1959 Lieutenant Colonel William Rankin bailed out of his plane
    at a height of 46,000 feet into a violent thunderstorm,
    and lived to write about the 45 minute journey (which
    normally would have been a thirteen minute descent). He
    described it as one of the most bizarre and painful
    experiences imaginable.
    In 1971 Heavy rains from Tropical Storm Doria caused devastating
    floods in central and northeastern New Jersey resulting
    in 138 million dollars damage. In southeastern
    Pennsylvania, high winds downed trees and power lines,
    and in New York City, heavy rains flooded streets and
    subways.
    In 1986 The temperature at Apalachicola FL dipped to 62 degrees
    to shatter their previous August record by four degrees,
    having tied their August record high of 99 degrees on the
    2nd of the month.
    In 1987 Severe thunderstorms broke the heat in the southeastern
    U.S. and the Gulf Coast Region, but not before seven
    cities reported record high temperatures for the date.
    The severe thunderstorms produced wind gusts to 80 mph
    downing large trees around Horse Shoe NC, and pelted
    southeast Meridian MS with hail two inches in diameter.
    In 1988 Tropical Storm Chris spawned a tornado near Manning SC
    which killed one person, and spawned three tornadoes in
    North Carolina. Chris produced one to two foot tides,
    and three to six inch rains, over coastal South Carolina.
    Severe thunderstorms in New York State and Vermont,
    developing ahead of a cold front, spawned a tornado which
    killed one person at Hector NY, and produced tennis ball
    size hail at Brandon VT, and wind gusts to 80 mph at

    Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, and Florida (especially)
    the Keys), Hurricane Isaac made landfall in Plaquemines
    Parish, just southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi
    River, with 80 mph winds. A storm surge of up to 12 feet
    occurred to the right of where Isaac made landfall. The
    remnants headed across Arkansas, then north into Missouri,
    and eventually the Ohio Valley. Isaac brought flooding
    rains and tornadoes to many areas. He made a second
    landfall along the coast of Louisiana just west of Port
    Fourchon, with 80 mph winds (28th-29th).

    In 1776 General Washington took advantage of a heavy fog to
    evacuate Long Island after a defeat. Adverse winds kept
    the British fleet from intervening.
    In 1839 A hurricane moved from Cape Hatteras NC to offshore New

    Mountains of New York State. Considerable snow was also
    reported at Salem NY.
    In 1982 A tropical depression brought torrential rains to
    portions of southern Texas. Up to twelve inches fell

    the date by twelve degrees. Frost was reported in South
    Dakota. Aberdeen SD established a record for the month
    of August with a low of 32 degrees. Britton SD dipped to
    31 degrees.
    In 1988 August ended on a relatively mild and tranquil note for
    most of the nation. Forest fires in the northwestern
    U.S. scorched 180,000 acres of land during the last week
    of August.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing along a stationary front spread
    severe weather from Minnesota to Indiana through the
    course of the day and night. Thunderstorms in Minnesota
    produced baseball size hail near Saint Michael and
    Hutchinson, and drenched Moose Lake with nine inches of
    rain in six hours. Tucson AZ hit 100 degrees for a
    record 79th time in the year, surpassing the record
    established the previous year.
    In 2002 Typhoon Ruso slammed into South Korea, causing major
    flooding and damage.
    In 2015 Satellite data suggested that the eye of Hurricane Fred
    passed just southwest of Boa Vista Island in the Cape
    Verde Islands. According to the official Atlantic tropical
    record, which begins in 1851, Fred is the furst hurricane
    to pass through the Cape Verde Islands since 1892.

    First day of meteorological autumn.
    In 1894 A forest fire driven by high winds burned down the town
    of Hinkley MN killing 418 persons.
    In 1897 Hailstone drifts six feet deep were reported in
    Washington County IA.
    In 1914 The town of Bloomington MI was deluged with 9.78 inches
    of rain in 24 hours to establish a state record. (31st-
    1st)
    In 1955 The temperature at Los Angeles CA soared to an all-time
    high of 110 degrees during an eight day string of
    100 degree weather.
    In 1979 A home in Centerville TN was hit by lightning and totally
    destroyed. It marked the third time that the house had
    been hit by lightning since being built in 1970.
    In 1987 Cool Canadian air invaded the Midwest. Six cities
    reported record low temperatures for the date, including
    Indianapolis IN with a reading of 44 degrees. Hot
    weather continued in the northwestern U.S. Five cities
    reported record high temperatures for the date, including
    Hanover WA, where the mercury soared to 106 degrees.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced heavy rain in the Upper
    Mississippi Valley. Ely MN was drenched with three
    inches of rain in two hours, and pelted with one inch
    hail. The heavy rain flooded streets and basements, and
    the high water pressure which resulted blew the covers
    off manholes.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front produced
    severe weather in Oklahoma during the late afternoon and
    evening hours. Thunderstorms produced hail two inches in
    diameter west of Arapahoe, and wind gusts to 70 mph at
    Luther and south of Harrah. Early morning thunderstorms
    over Indiana drenched Kokomo with 5 to 8 inches of rain,
    and spawned a tornado which injured three persons at
    Bruce Lake.
    In 2003 Thirty-one states and Puerto Rico experienced flooding
    over the Labor Day Weekend. In the southern U.S., reports
    of flooding extended from California to the Carolinas.
    And, in the middle of the country, from Utah to
    Pennsylvania, there was widespread urban, small stream
    and street flooding, with hundreds of roads closed.
    Rainfall totals in much of Indiana ranged from 6 to 10
    inches, with a record daily total at Indianapolis. The
    previous Friday, seven vehicles were swept off the Kansas
    turnpike, with 4 fatalities, and 2 others missing.
    In 2004 (1st-6th) Powerful hurricane Frances with 145 mph
    winds slammed into the Bahamas, with numerous
    reports of winds over 100 mph, and torrential rain.
    Frances slowed near the northwest Bahamas, and
    weakened to 105 mph, as dry air got entrained into
    the west side of the system on the 3rd and 4th.
    Frances stalled for a time just offshore from Palm
    Beach area, before slowly moving again...coming
    onshore near Stuart, FL...between West Palm Beach
    and Vero Beach. Over 3 million lost power from the
    storm, and over 13 inches of rain fell in some areas.
    Damage was widespread across the state. Frances
    weakened to a Tropical Storm late on the 5th, then
    made landfall near St. Marks, FL on the 6th. Frances
    also spawned over 70 tornadoes over much of the southeast
    U.S....second only to Beulah in 1967 with 115 tornadoes.
    In 2019 Hurricane Dorian slammed into the Bahamas with 185 mph
    winds, and a pressure of 26.87 inches (910 millibars),
    making it the strongest hurricane to hit the Bahamas in
    modern history. Wind gusts exceeded 220 mph.

    In 1935 Perhaps the most intense hurricane ever to hit the U.S.
    struck the Florida Keys with 200 mph winds. The
    hurricane produces a fifteen foot tide and waves thirty
    feet high. 400 persons perished in the storm on that
    Labor Day. The barometric pressure at Matecumbe Bay FL
    hits a record low for the U.S. of 26.35 inches; which
    was the record until Hurricane Gilbert in 1988, which
    had a pressure of 26.13 inches.
    In 1950 The temperature at Mecca CA soared to 126 degrees to
    establish a U.S. record for the month of September. The
    low that morning was 89 degrees.
    In 1985 After teasing residents along the Gulf of Mexico for two
    days, Hurricane Elena finally came ashore at Biloxi MS.
    The hurricane, packing winds of 127 mph, caused more than
    a billion dollars damage.
    In 1987 Late evening thunderstorms in the Northern Plains Region
    produced wind gusts to 75 mph at Jordan MT, and a "hot
    flash" at Redig SD. The temperature at Redig rose from
    66 degrees at 10 PM to 86 degrees at 11 PM
    as thunderstorm winds gusted to 36 mph. Nine cities
    in the Upper Ohio Valley, the Tennessee Valley and the
    Central Gulf Coast States reported record low tempera-
    tures for the date, including Elkins WV with a reading of
    38 degrees.
    In 1988 Unseasonably hot weather prevailed in the northwestern
    U.S. Afternoon highs of 98 at Olympia WA, 98 at Seattle
    WA, 105 at Portland OR, and 110 at Medford OR,
    established records for the month of September.
    Quillayute WA equalled their September record with an
    afternoon high of 97 degrees.
    In 1989 Eight cities in the Gulf Coast Region reported record
    high temperatures for the date as readings soared into
    the upper 90s. Houston TX and Port Arthur TX hit
    99 degrees. Late evening thunderstorms, developing ahead
    of a cold front, produced wind gusts to 63 mph at
    Dickinson ND, and golf ball size hail in North Dakota and
    Nebraska. Winds along the cold front itself gusted to 62
    mph at Buffalo SD.
    In 2002 An F-3 tornado damaged a large part of Ladysmith, WI --
    with a church, a hotel, and a senior citizen center
    suffering heavy damage.

    In 1821 A hurricane made landfall at Long Island, near Kennedy
    Airport, then moved through western Connecticut. The
    hurricane produced a record tide at New York City.
    In 1953 The temperature at Erie PA reached 99 degrees,
    and Stroudsburg PA established a state record
    for September with a reading of 106 degrees.
    In 1961 Denver CO received 4.2 inches of snow, their earliest
    snow of record.
    In 1967 100+ mph winds drove golfball size hail across the Texas
    Panhandle. One stone was 11" in circumference.
    In 1970 During the early evening hours, in the midst of a severe
    hailstorm at Coffeyville KS, a stone 17.5 inches in
    circumference and nearly two pounds in weight was
    recovered. It was the largest measured hailstone in U.S.
    weather records. Average stone size from the storm was
    five inches in diameter, with another stone reportedly
    eight inches in diameter.
    In 1987 Temperatures dipped into the 40s and 50s for morning lows
    across much of the eastern half of the country, with
    eleven cities reporting record lows for the date.
    Pellston MI tied Gunnison CO for honors as the cold spot
    in the nation with a low of 30 degrees. Smoke from
    forest fires darkened skies in southern Oregon
    and northern California.
    In 1988 Sixteen cities in the northwestern U.S. reported record
    high temperatures for the date. Highs of 89 degrees
    at Stampede Pass WA and 116 at Redding CA established

    In 1939 A thunderstorm deluged Washington D.C. with 4.4 inches of
    rain in two hours. September of that year was very dry
    across much of the nation, and Washington D.C. received
    more rain in that two hour period than most other places
    in the country that entire month.
    In 1970 The greatest natural disaster of record for Arizona
    occurred. Unprecedented rains caused rivers in central
    Arizona to rise five to ten feet per hour, sweeping cars
    and buildings as far as 30 to 40 miles downstream.
    Flooding claimed the lives of 23 persons, mainly campers,
    and caused millions of dollars damage. Water crested 36
    feet above normal near Sunflower AZ. Workman's Creek was
    deluged with 11.40 inches of rain in 24 hour to establish
    a state record. Moisture from Pacific Tropical Storm
    Norma led to the severe flooding. (4th-6th)
    In 1986 An unusually strong dust devil moved across the Flagstaff
    Pulliam Airport. The dust devil blew open the doors of
    the National Weather Service office scattering papers and
    bringing down a ceiling-mounted light fixture.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms developing along a stationary front
    produced heavy rain across the Southern Atlantic Coast
    States. Up to eight inches was reported north of
    Charleston SC. Serious flooding was reported in Monks
    Corner SC. Seven cities in the northeastern U.S.
    reported record low temperatures for the date.
    Houlton ME dipped to 32 degrees.
    In 1988 The western U.S. experienced another day of record heat.
    The afternoon high of 91 degrees at Stampede Pass WA
    established an all-time record for that location, and Los
    Angeles CA equalled their all-time record high with a
    reading of 110 degrees. The record high of 107 degrees
    at San Diego CA was their hottest reading in 25 years.
    Red Bluff CA was the hot spot in the nation with an
    afternoon high of 118 degrees.
    In 1989 Overnight thunderstorm rains of four and a half to seven
    inches drenched eastern Nebraska during the morning
    hours, pushing creeks out of their banks, and flooding
    fields, country roads and city streets. Totals ranged up
    to 6.97 inches south of Creston. It was also a soggy
    Labor Day for northern Florida, with 6.82 inches of rain
    reported at Jacksonville. Evening thunderstorms produced
    2.75 inches of rain in one hour at Sandlewood FL.
    In 2010 After being as strong as a category 4 hurricane with 145
    winds a few days earlier...Tropical Storm Earl with 70
    mph winds, extending out 205 miles from the center, came
    ashore near Western Head Nova Scotia...producing a wide
    area of tropical storm force winds and flooding rain.
    In 2012 Strong winds from a Bering Sea storm impacted portions of
    southern Alaska, from the Aleutians to south-central
    Alaska, Tuesday evening through the overnight hours. Winds
    of 50-60 mph were prevalent in Anchorage, with gusts to
    over 100 mph observed just east of Anchorage in the higher
    elevations.

    Alabama was 100 degrees or above that afternoon.
    In 1933 A hurricane hit Brownsville TX killing forty persons and
    causing 12 million dollars damage.
    In 1950 Hurricane Easy produced the greatest 24 hour rainfall in
    U.S. weather records. The hurricane deluged Yankeetown,
    on the upper west coast of Florida, with 38.7 inches of
    rain.
    In 1975 Strong winds reduced visibilities to near zero in blowing
    dust resulting in a 22-car chain reaction accident on
    Interstate 10 near Toltec AZ. Two persons were killed,
    and 14 others were injured.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms over the Southern and Middle Atlantic Coast
    States drenched Charleston SC with 5.50 inches of rain,
    and a total of 13.50 inches in two days, flooding homes,
    and leaving roads and bridges under water. A tropical storm
    which formed off the Carolina coast was responsible for
    torrential rains over coastal regions of South Carolina.
    Between the 30th of August and the 8th of September,
    Charleston SC received 18.44 inches of rain. The heavy rains
    caused extensive flooding around the city of Charleston,
    seriously damaged cotton crops in the eastern part of the
    state, and resulted in an unusally high number of mosquitoes.
    In 1988 Five days of heavy rain commenced in west central
    Florida. Up to 20 inches of rain in four days resulted
    in extensive urban flooding, and evacuation of 1000
    homes. Flooding claimed four lives, and caused more than
    five million dollars proprty damage.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced six to ten inches of rain in south
    central Kansas between 6 AM and Noon. Serious flooding
    was reported around Wichita, with water four feet deep
    along some roads. A cold front crossing the Northern
    High Plains Region produced wind gusts to 63 mph at
    Sheridan WY.
    In 2003 Hurricane Fabian hit Bermuda as a category 3 hurricane,
    the strongest hurricane to hit there in decades, with
    120 mph winds. The Bermuda Weather Service reported an
    unofficial observation of 117 mph sustained winds, with
    gusts to 127 mph. The Bermuda Airport reported sustained
    winds of 103 mph, with gusts to 132 mph. Elsewhere,
    Typhpoon Dujan slammed into the southern Chinese coastal
    city of Shenzhen, killing at least 20 people, and causing
    extensive damage to parts of the country's showcase
    economic development zone. Of the 20 fatalities, 16 were
    killed when a workers dormitory collapsed, and at least
    20 others were injured. It was the worst damage to that
    damage to that region since 1979.
    In 2017 Hurricane Irma became the most powerful hurricane in the
    Atlantic Basin, outside of the Caribbean and Gulf Of Mexico
    with 185 mph winds. She became only the 5th Atlantic Basin
    Hurricane with a peak wind speed of 180 mph or greater;
    the others were Allen (1980), the Labor Day Hurricane of
    1935, Gilbert (1988), and Wilma (2005). She also set the
    record for being the strongest for so long a period of
    time...185 mph winds for 35 straight hours. On Sept. 9,
    the entire Florida peninsula, plus the central and eastern
    Florida panhandle, were under a Hurricane Warning, with
    part of the western Florida panhandle under a Tropical
    Storm Warning...and only the extreme western Florida
    panhandle not under either one of those (5th-9th).

    104 mph at Winterhaven FL flipping over four airplanes,
    and damaging five others. The high winds also damaged a
    hangar and three other buildings. A cold front produced
    strong winds and blowing dust in the Northern High
    Plains, with gusts to 54 mph reported at Buffalo SD.
    Powerful Hurricane Gabrielle and strong easterly winds
    combined to create waves up to ten feet high along the
    south half of the Atlantic coast.

    hurricane destroyed more than 3600 houses, and total
    damage was more than thirty million dollars. Winds to
    120 mph, and a twenty foot storm surge accompanied the
    hurricane. Following the storm, the surf was 300 feet
    inland from the former water line. The hurricane claimed
    another 1200 lives outside of the Galveston area. (8th-
    9th)
    In 1987 A tropical depression off the coast of South Carolina
    brought another round of heavy rain to the Middle
    Atlantic Coast Region and the Upper Ohio Valley. Showers
    and thunderstorms produced extremely heavy rain in
    eastern Pennsylvania, where flooding caused more than
    55 million dollars damage across a seven county area. The
    afternoon high of 97 degrees at Miami FL was a record for
    the month of September.
    In 1988 Eighteen cities in the south central and eastern U.S.
    reported record low temperatures for the date, including
    Roanoke VA with a reading of 42 degrees.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing along a stationary front
    produced very heavy rain in the central U.S. Thunder-
    storms during the late morning and afternoon produced
    5 to 9 inches of rain around Lincoln NE, with an
    unofficial total of eleven inches near Holmes Park.
    Up to six and a half inches of rain soaked northern and
    western Iowa. Eighty to ninety percent of the homes in
    Shenandoah IA, where 5.89 inches of rain was received,
    reported basement flooding.
    In 2012 Severe weather barreled across the northeast US and
    mid-Atlantic as a powerful cold front brought heavy rain,
    high winds, and at least one tornado into a beachfront
    neighborhood of New York City. A watersport with 70 mph
    winds became a tornado when it came ashore at Breezy
    Point, a Queens neighborhood on the western edge of the
    Rockaway Peninsula. The tornado spiraled a mixture of
    sand and debris, which was largely flung onto a nearby
    baseball field. A second confirmed tornado touched down
    in Brooklyn...rated an EF1 on the Enhanced Fujita scale.
    Tornado watches and warnings were in effect for much of
    of the day across parts of New York, New Jersey, and
    Connecticut. The severe weather even forced the U.S.
    Open men's and women's singles tennis matches in
    Flushing Meadows, to be rescheduled to the next day.
    Elsewhere, 65,000 people were without power in the
    Washington, DC area, and surrounding areas. And, twelve
    people were injured as they tried to evacuate Show Place
    Arena, 20 miles east of Washington, DC, in Maryland.
    In 2014 Moisture from the remnants of Hurricane Norbert in the
    Eastern Pacific basin, dropped 3.30 inches of rain at
    Phoenix, AZ...the most rain in one day, since records began
    in 1895.

    Today is Thursday September 9, 2021.
    This is the 252nd day of the year, there are 113 days left.

    Weather data after 1990 is PARTIAL. For more current
    weather history, go to the National Climate Data Center
    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1921 A dying tropical depression unloaded 38.2 inches of rain
    upon the town of Thrall in southeastern Texas killing 224
    persons. 36.4 inches fell in 18 hours.
    In 1944 The "Great Atlantic Hurricane" ravaged the east coast.
    The storm killed 22 persons and caused 63 million dollars
    damage in the Chesapeake Bay area, then besieged New
    England killing 390 persons and causing another 100
    million dollars damage.
    In 1971 Hurricane Ginger formed, and remained a hurricane until
    the 5th of October. The 27 day life span was the longest
    of record for any hurricane in the North Atlantic Ocean.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the central U.S.
    Thunderstorms in West Texas spawned four tornadoes in the
    vicinity of Lubbock, and produced baseball size hail and
    wind gusts to 81 mph at Ropesville. Thunderstorms
    produced hail two inches in diameter at Downs KS and
    Harvard NE, breaking car windows at Harvard.
    In 1988 Florence became a hurricane and headed for the Central
    Gulf Coast Region. Florence made landfall early the next
    morning, passing over New Orleans LA. Winds gusts to 80
    mph were recorded at an oil rig south of the Chandeleur
    Islands. Wind gusts around New Orleans reached 61 mph.
    Total property damage from Florence was estimated at 2.5
    million dollars.
    In 1989 The first snow of the season began to whiten the
    mountains of Wyoming early in the morning, as for two
    days a moist and unusually cold storm system affected the
    state. By the morning of the 11th, a foot of snow
    covered the ground at Burgess Junction. Thunderstorms
    developing along a cold front crossing the Ohio Valley
    produced severe weather in Indiana during the late
    afternoon and early evening hours. Strong thunderstorm
    winds blew down a tent at Palestine injuring seven
    persons, and frequent lightning interrupted the Purdue
    and Miami of Ohio football game, clearing the stands.
    In 2009 Hurricane Fred became the second major hurricane of the
    season; but what was unusual was that Fred was only the
    third major hurricane noted east of 35 degrees west
    longitude in the Tropical Atlantic Ocean...and the
    strongest hurricane ever so far south and east. This
    type of system would have been very difficult to
    accurately observe before satellite pictures began in
    the 1960s.

    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1949 An early snowstorm brought 7.5 inches to Helena MT.
    In Maine, a storm drenched New Brunswick with 8.05 inches
    of rain in 24 hours, a state record.
    In 1961 Very large and slow moving Hurricane Carla made landfall
    near Port Lavaca TX. Carla battered the central Texas
    coast with wind gusts to 175 mph, and up to 16 inches of
    rain, and spawned a vicious tornado which swept across
    Galveston Island killing eight persons. The hurricane
    claimed 45 lives, and caused 300 million dollars damage.
    The remnants of Carla produced heavy rain in the Lower
    Missouri Valley and southern sections of the Upper Great
    Lakes Region.
    In 1965 Hurricane Betsy reached southern Arkansas, then weakened
    as it moved across southern and eastern sections. Winds
    of 50-70 mph were common, with 2-6 inches of rain.
    In 1976 Up to five inches of rain brought walls of water and
    millions of tons of debris into Bullhead City AZ via
    washes from elevations above 3000 feet. Flooding caused
    more than three million dollars damage. Chasms up to
    forty feet deep were cut across some roads.
    In 1986 Thunderstorms caused flash flooding and subsequent river
    flooding in central Lower Michigan. Up to 14 inches of
    rain fell in a 72 hour period, and flooding caused 400
    million dollars damage.
    In 1987 Late afternoon and evening thunderstorms produced large
    hail and damaging winds in Texas, and spawned three
    tornadoes. Thunderstorm winds gusted to 70 mph at
    Goodnight TX.
    In 1988 Snow blanketed parts of the Central Rocky Mountain Region
    and the Central Plateau, with ten inches reported at
    Mount Evans CO. Smoke from forest fires in the
    northwestern U.S. reached Pennsylvania and New York
    State. Hurricane Gilbert, moving westward over the
    Carribean, was packing winds of 100 mph by the end of the
    day.
    In 1989 Nine cities in the north central U.S. reported record low
    temperatures for the date, including Havre MT with a
    reading of 23 degrees. Livingston MT and West
    Yellowstone MT tied for honors as the cold spot in the
    nation with morning lows of 17 degrees. Thunderstorms
    produced hail over the Sierra Nevada Range of California,
    with two inches reported on the ground near Donner
    Summit. The hail made roads very slick, resulting in a
    twenty car accident.
    In 1992 The eye of Hurricane Iniki tracked across western Kauai HI,
    stranding Steven Spielberg and the film crew of Jurassic
    Park.
    In 2014 An inch of snow fell at Rapid City, SD, with up to 8 inches
    in surrounding areas. This was the earliest measurable snow
    on record (since 1888), and was 2 days sooner than the
    previous record, set on Sept. 13, 1970.
    In 2013 Humberto became the first hurricane in the Atlantic Basin
    for season. It tied for the latest forming first hurricane
    with Hurricane Gustav in 2002.

    In 1882 Hot and dry winds caused tree foliage in eastern Kansas
    to wither and crumble.
    In 1977 Thunderstorms deluged the Kansas City area with
    torrential rains in the early morning hours, and then
    again that evening. Some places were deluged with more
    than six inches of rain twice that day, with up to
    18 inches of rain reported at Independence MO. Flooding
    claimed the lives of 25 persons. The Country Club Plaza
    area was hardest hit. 2000 vehicles had to be towed
    following the storm, 150 of which had to be pulled out of
    Brush Creek, which runs through the Plaza area.
    In 1979 Hurricane Frederick smashed into the Mobile Bay area of
    Alabama packing 132 mph winds. Winds gusts to 145 mph
    were reported as the eye of the hurricane moved over
    Dauphin Island AL, just west of Mobile. Frederick
    produced a fifteen foot storm surge near the mouth of
    Mobile Bay. The hurricane was the costliest in U.S.
    history causing 2.3 billion dollars damage.
    In 1987 Showers and thunderstorms produced heavy rain which
    caused flooding in North Carolina, West Virginia,
    Virginia and Pennsylvania. Parts of Virginia received 3
    to 4 inches of rain in just two hours early in the day.
    Later in the day, 3 to 5 inch rains deluged Cumberland
    County of south central Pennsylvania. Evening
    thunderstorms produced seven inches of rain at Marysville
    PA, most of which fell in three hours time.
    In 1988 An afternoon thunderstorm spawned a tornado which skipped
    across northern sections of Indianapolis IN damaging
    roofs and automobiles. It was the first tornado in
    central Indiana in September in nearly forty years of
    records. Hurricane Gilbert plowed across the island of
    Jamaica, and by the end of the day was headed for the
    Cayman Islands, packing winds of 125 mph.
    In 1989 Snow whitened the mountains and foothills of northeast
    Colorado, with eight inches reported at Buckhorn
    Mountain, west of Fort Collins. Two to three inches fell
    around Denver, causing great havoc during the evening
    rush hour. Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the
    Southern Plains Region between mid afternoon and early the
    next morning. Thunderstorms produced hail three inches in
    diameter at Roswell NM, and wind gusts greater than
    98 mph at Henryetta OK. Thunderstorms also produced
    torrential rains, with more than seven inches at Scotland
    TX, with more than six inches at Yukon OK.
    In 1999 Hurricane Floyd, with 150 mph winds, covered much of the
    Atlantic Ocean, just off the Florida Coast.
    In 2002 Santaquin, UT, was hit with 3 devastating mudslides,
    that were caused by a combination of recent heavy rain,
    hail, and wildfires. Widespread damage resulted.
    In 2003 Typhoon Maemi, with 135 mph winds, hammered South Korea,
    killing at least 87, leaving thousands homeless, and downed
    trees, powerlines, and caused a landslide. Storm totals
    were over 10 inches in many areas...and it was the worst
    storm to hit the region in nearly a centry.
    In 2013 An estimated 6 to 10 inches of rain fell during 12 to 18
    hours along Colorado's Rocky Mountain Range, from Boulder
    south to Colorad Springs...causing residents to be
    evacuated, washing out roads, and killing at least 3.
    Several communities were cut off by the floodwaters.

    In 1937 The mercury soared to 92 degrees at Seattle WA, a record
    for September.
    In 1944 A very destructive hurricane swept across Cape Hatteras
    and Chesapeake Bay, side swiped New Jersey and Long
    Island, and crossed southeastern Massachusetts. The
    hurricane killed more than 400 persons, mainly at sea.
    The hurricane destroyed the Atlantic City NJ boardwalk.
    In 1970 The temperature at Fremont OR dipped to 2 above zero to
    equal the state record for September set on the 24th in
    1926.
    In 1987 Barrow AK received 5.1 inches of snow, a record for
    September. Thunderstorms developing along a cold front
    produced severe weather from Minnesota to Texas.
    Thunderstorms in Iowa produced baseball size hail at
    Laporte City, and 80 mph winds at Laurens. Hail caused
    more than ten million dollars damage to crops in Iowa.
    Thunderstorms in Missouri produced wind gusts to 75 mph
    at Missouri City and Kansas City. A thunderstorm in
    Texas deluged the town of Fairlie with two inches of rain
    in just two hours.
    In 1988 Hurricane Gilbert made the first of its two landfalls on
    Mexico, producing 170 mph winds at Cozumel. Thunderstorms
    produced severe weather over the Texas panhandle during the
    evening hours. One thunderstorm spawned a (F-2) tornado in
    the southwest part of Amarillo, and deluged the area with
    five inches of rain. The heavy rain left roads under as much
    as five feet of water, and left Lawrence Lake a mile out of
    its banks. Hurricane Gilbert lost some of its punch crossing
    the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Its maximum winds
    diminished to 120 mph.
    In 1989 Unseasonably cool weather prevailed across the south
    central U.S. Eight cities reported record low tempera-
    tures for the date, including Raton NM with a reading of
    30 degrees. The afternoon high of 59 degrees at Topeka
    KS marked their third straight record cool maximum
    temperature. Unseasonably warm weather continued in the
    Pacific Northwest. Seattle WA reported a record eight
    days in a row of 80 degree weather in September.
    In 2014 (14th-16th) Hurricane Odile slammed into the Baja
    Peninsula as a Category 3 hurricane...tied with Hurricane
    Olivia as the strongest hurricane to hit that area...the
    last time that happened was in 1967.

    In 1752 A great hurricane produced a tide along the South
    Carolina coast which nearly inundated downtown
    Charleston. However, just before the tide reached the
    city, a shift in the wind caused the water level to drop
    five feet in ten minutes.
    In 1910 Rains of .27 inch on the 14th and .73 inch on the 15th
    were the earliest and heaviest of record for Fresno CA,
    which, along with much of California, experiences a
    "rainy season" in the winter.
    In 1939 The temperature at Detroit MI soared to 100 degrees to
    establish a record for September.
    In 1982 A snowstorm over Wyoming produced 16.9 inches at Lander
    to esablish a 24 hour record for September for that
    location. (13th-15th)
    In 1987 The first snow of the season was observed at the Winter
    Park ski resort in Colorado early in the day. Eight
    inches of snow was reported at the Summit of Mount Evans,
    along with wind gusts to 61 mph. Early morning
    thunderstorms in Texas produced up to six inches of rain
    in Real County. Two occupants of a car drowned, and the
    other six were injured as it was swept into Camp Wood
    Creek, near the town of Leakey. Late afternoon and
    evening thunderstorms produced severe weather in central
    and northeastern Oklahoma. Wind gusts to 70 mph and golf
    ball size hail were reported around Oklahoma City OK.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms brought much needed rains to parts of the
    central U.S. Rainfall totals of 2.87 inches at Sioux
    City IA and 4.59 inches at Kansas City MO were records
    for the date. Up to eight inches of rain deluged the
    Kansas City area, nearly as much rain as was received the
    previous eight months. Hurricane Gilbert, meanwhile,
    slowly churned toward the border of Mexico and the U.S.
    In 1989 Showers and thunderstorms produced locally heavy rain in
    the Central Appalachians. Virgie VA received 2.60 inches
    of rain during the evening hours, and Bartlett TN was
    deluged with 2.75 inches in just ninety minutes. Heavy
    rain left five cars partially submerged in high water in
    a parking lot at Bulls Gap TN. Thunderstorms over
    central North Carolina drenched the Fayetteville area
    with 4 to 8 inches of rain between 8 PM and midnight.
    Flash flooding, and a couple of dam breaks, claimed the
    lives of two persons, and caused ten million dollars
    damage. Hugo, churning over the waters of the Carribean,
    strengthened to the category of a very dangerous
    hurricane, packing winds of 150 mph.
    In 2010 Hurricane Julia increased rapidly to a Category 4 storm,
    becoming the strongest hurricane on record so far east
    in the Atlantic Ocean. At the same time, Hurricane Igor,
    also in the Atlantic Ocean, was also a Category 4 storm.
    This was the second time in recorded history that 2
    Category 4 hurricanes were active at the same time in
    the Atlantic. The previous occurrence was in 1926, when
    Hurricanes Four and Six (storms were not named back
    then) were in the Atlantic Basin. Hurricane Four stayed
    in the Atlantic Ocean, while Hurricane Six hit Miami,
    Florida as a Category 4 storm on Sept. 18, 1926.

    In 1932 Concord NH was drenched with 5.97 inches of rain in
    24 hours to establish a record for that location (16th-
    17th).
    In 1963 Nearly two and a half inches of rain fell at Yuma AZ in
    24 hours. It was the most intense rain for Yuma during
    the period between 1909 and 1977.
    In 1965 A storm produced a band of heavy snow across parts of
    Wyoming. Totals of 23 inches at Rawlins and 20.7 inches
    at Lander far surpassed previous snowfall record totals
    for so early in the season. (15th-17th)
    In 1987 Thunderstorms produced large hail, damaging winds, and
    heavy rain in the northeastern U.S. Heavy rain in
    southwestern Pennsylvania forced evacuation of twenty
    homes along Four Mile Run Creek, near Darlington.
    Harrisburg PA established a record for the date with 2.11
    inches of rain. A cold front in the central U.S. brought
    freezing temperatures to parts of Montana and Wyoming.
    In 1988 Early in the morning a tornado hit Kelly Air Force Base
    in San Antonio TX injuring three persons and causing
    twenty-eight million dollars damage. A second tornado
    on the northwest side of San Antonio caused six million
    dollars damage, and a third tornado in Bexar County
    killed one person and injured another. Thunderstorms
    associated with Hurricane Gilbert spawned a total of
    forty-seven tornadoes in a two day period, with forty
    tornadoes in central and south central Texas.
    In 1989 Hurricane Hugo hit the Virgin Islands, producing wind
    gusts to 97 mph at Saint Croix. Hurricane Hugo passed
    directly over the island of Saint Croix causing complete
    devastation and essentially cutting off the island from
    communications. A storm surge of five to seven feet
    occurred at Saint Croix. The only rain gauge left
    operating, at Caneel Bay, indicated 9.40 inches in
    24 hours. Hurricane Hugo claimed the lives of three
    persons at Saint Croix, and caused more than 500 million
    dollars damage. A ship, Nightcap, in the harbor of
    Culebra, measured wind gusts as high as 170 mph.
    A cold front brought high winds to the Great Basin and
    the Rocky Mountain Region, and thunderstorms along the
    cold front produced wind gusts to 66 mph at Yellowstone
    Park WY.
    In 2000 Tropical Storm Gordon made landfall at Cedar Key, FL
    with 70 mph winds. Previously a minimal hurricane, it
    produced large amounts of rain and several tornadoes
    across the Florida Peninsula as it approached.
    In 2001 A severe hailstorm near Rocky Ford, CO killed 1500 birds,
    most of them white pelicans.
    In 2014 Harrison, Arkansas measured 1.41 inches of rain in only
    12 minutes, from a strong thunderstorm in the area.

    In 1926 The great "Miami Hurricane" produced winds reaching
    138 mph which drove ocean waters into the Biscayne Bay
    drowning 135 persons. The eye of the hurricane passed
    over Miami, at which time the barometric pressure reached
    27.61 inches. Tides up to twelve feet high accompanied
    the hurricane, which claimed a total of 372 lives.
    In 1987 Early morning thunderstorms in northern Texas produced
    wind gusts to 65 mph at Sulphur Springs, and 2.50 inches
    of rain in one hour to Commerce, which caused widespread
    street flooding. Bonham TX received 4.50 inches of rain
    which also resulted in widespread street flooding as Pig
    Branch overflowed its banks.
    In 1988 A strong cold front produced severe thunderstorms in the
    north central U.S. High winds behind the cold front
    gusted to 92 mph at Fort Collins CO, and up to a foot of
    snow blanketed the mountains of Montana, with seven
    inches reported at Great Falls. High winds in Colorado
    caused three million dollars damage.
    In 1989 Hurricane Hugo hit Puerto Rico, producing wind gusts
    to 92 mph at San Juan, and wind gusts to 120 mph at
    Roosevelt Roads. Hugo produced a storm surge of four to
    six feet, and northeastern sections of the island were
    deluged with more than ten inches of rain. Hugo claimed
    the lives of a dozen persons in Puerto Rico, and caused
    a bilion dollars damage, incuding 100 million dollars
    damage to crops. Thunderstorms representing what remained
    of Hurricane Octave continued to bring heavy rain to the
    valleys of northern California. Heavier 24 hour rainfall
    totals included 3.15 inches at Redding, and 2.66 inches at
    Red Bluff.
    In 2003 Hurricane Isabel, which at one time, was a category 5
    hurricane, the first in the Atlantic basin since Mitch in
    1998, weakened to a category 2 hurricane before coming
    ashore at Drum Inlet, North Carolina. Isabel was a rather
    large storm, with tropical storm and hurricane force winds,
    as well as heavy rains, spreading over a large area.

    In 1947 The eye of a hurricane passed directly over New Orleans,
    and the barometric pressure dipped to 28.61 inches. The
    hurricane killed 51 persons, and caused 110 million
    dollars damage. It produced wind gusts to 155 mph while
    making landfall over Fort Lauderdale FL two days earlier.
    In 1967 Hurricane Beulah deluged Brownsville TX with 12.19 inches
    of rain in 24 hours, to establish a record for that
    location. Hurricane Beulah made landfall on the 20th
    near the mouth of the Rio Grande River, where a wind gust
    to 135 mph was reported by a ship in the port. (19th-20th)
    Beulah also spawned a total of 115 tornadoes, the most
    ever from a tropical system.
    In 1987 Cool autumn-like weather invaded the Central Rockies.
    Temperatures dipped into the 30s and 40s, with teens and
    20s reported in the higher elevations. Gunnison CO was
    the cold spot in the nation with a morning low of 15
    degrees.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing along a fast moving cold front
    produced severe weather in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana
    and Michigan. Eight tornadoes were reported, including
    five in Indiana. Thunderstorm winds gusted to 74 mph at
    Wabash IN. Winds associated with the cold front itself
    gusted to 69 mph at Kenosha WI.
    In 1989 Showers and thunderstorms produced heavy rain in
    the Middle and Northern Atlantic Coast Region. Cape
    Hatteras NC was deluged with nearly 3.50 inches of rain
    in three hours. Syracuse NY reported 1.77 inches of
    rain, a record for the date, and Chatham NJ reported
    an all-time record of 3.45 inches in one day. Hurricane
    Hugo headed for the Bahamas, and Tropical Storm Iris,
    following close on its heels, strengthened to near
    hurricane force.
    In 1999 Tropical Storm Harvey formed in the Gulf of Mexico, and took
    an unexpected southeast turn toward Naples, Florida; before
    crossing south Florida, and being absorbed by a cold front
    near the Bahamas on the 22nd.

    In 1845 A tornado traveled an amazing 275 miles across Lake Ontario,
    New York and Lake Champlain.
    In 1926 The hurricane which hit Miami FL on the 18th, pounded
    Pensacola FL with wind gusts to 152 mph. Winds raged in
    excess of 100 mph for four hours, and above 75 mph for 20
    hours.
    In 1967 Hurricane Beulah moved into South Texas, and torrential
    rains from the hurricane turned the rich agricultural
    areas of South Texas into a large lake. Beulah also
    spawned a record 115 tornadoes.
    In 1983 The temperature at West Yellowstone MT plunged to
    six degrees below zero, while the temperature at
    San Francisco CA soared to 94 degrees.
    In 1987 Afternoon and evening thunderstorms produced severe
    weather in Oklahoma and west Texas. In Oklahoma,
    a thunderstorm at Seiling produced three inches of rain
    in one hour, golf ball size hail, and wind gusts to
    60 mph which collapsed a tent at the state fair injuring
    nine persons.
    In 1988 Showers and thunderstorms produced locally heavy rains in
    central Wyoming, and snow in some of the higher
    elevations. Casper WY reported 1.75 inches of rain in 24
    hours, and a thunderstorm north of the Wild Horse
    Reservoir produced 1.90 inches of rain in just 40 minutes.
    Hugo jilted Iris. Hurricane Hugo churned toward the
    Southern Atlantic Coast, gradually regaining strength
    along the way. Tropical Storm Iris got too close to
    Hugo, and began to weaken.
    In 1989 A cold front brought strong and gusty winds to the Great
    Basin and the Southern Plateau Region, with wind gusts to
    44 mph reported at Kingman AZ.
    In 2000 Violent thunderstorms across the Ohio Valley caused
    significant damage in many areas...especially in Xenia,
    Ohio...which was hit by an F-4 tornado. It brought back
    memories of The Tornado Super Outbreak back in April, 1974.
    when an F-5 tornado destroyed much of the city.
    In 2002 Hurricane Isidore, which deluged Jamaica days earlier as
    a tropical storm, slammed into western Cuba with 105 mph
    winds. This area was also hit by Hurricane Michelle just
    10 months earlier. Several tornadoes plowed across Indiana
    ahead of a strong cold front. Indianapolis and Martinsville
    were particularly hard hit.

    In 1894 A heavy chicken house, sixteen by sixteen feet in area,
    was picked up by a tornado and wedged between two trees.
    The hens were found the next day sitting on their eggs in
    the chicken house, with no windows broken, as though
    nothing had happened.
    In 1938 A great hurricane smashed into Long Island and bisected
    New England causing a massive forest blowdown and
    widespread flooding. Winds gusted to 186 mph at
    Blue Hill MA, and a storm surge of nearly thirty feet
    caused extensive flooding along the coast of Rhode
    Island. The hurricane killed 600 persons and caused 500
    million dollars damage. The hurricane, which lasted
    twelve days, destroyed 275 million trees. Hardest hit
    were Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Long
    Island NY. The "Long Island Express" produced gargantuan
    waves with its 150 mph winds. The waves smashed against
    the New England shore with such force that earthquake-
    recording machines on the Pacific coast clearly showed
    the shock of each wave.
    In 1954 The temperature at Deeth NV soared from a morning low of
    12 degrees to a high of 87 degrees, a record daily warm-
    up for the state.
    In 1987 Tropical Storm Emily, which formed in the Carribean the
    previous afternoon, caused considerable damage to the
    banana industry of Saint Vincent in the Windward Islands.
    Unseasonably hot weather continued in Florida and the
    western U.S. Redding CA and Red Bluff CA, with record
    highs of 108 degrees, tied for honors as the hot spot in
    the nation.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced high winds and locally heavy rain
    in the southwestern U.S. One thunderstorm in west Texas
    produced wind gusts to 86 mph at Dell City completely
    destroying an airport hangar. A Cessna 150 aircraft
    housed within the hangar was flipped over and snapped in
    two. Thunderstorms produced large hail in east central
    Utah, while snow blanketed some of the higher elevations
    of the state.
    In 1989 Hurricane Hugo slammed into the South Carolina coast
    about 11 PM, making landfall near Sullivans Island.
    Hurricane Hugo was directly responsible for thirteen
    deaths, and indirectly responsible for twenty-two others.
    A total of 420 persons were injured in the hurricane, and
    damage was estimated at eight billion dollars, including
    two billion dollars damage to crops. Sustained winds
    reached 85 mph at Folly Beach SC, with wind gusts as high
    was 138 mph. Wind gusts reached 98 mph at Charleston,
    and 109 mph at Shaw AFB. The biggest storm surge
    occurred in the McClellanville and Bulls Bay area of
    Charleston County, with a storm surge of 20.2 feet
    reported at Seewee Bay. Shrimp boats were found one half
    mile inland at McClellanville.

    In 1815 One of the greatest hurricanes to strike New England made
    landfall at Long Island and crossed Massachusetts and New
    Hampshire. It was the worst tempest in nearly two
    hundred years, equal to the hurricane which struck in
    1938, and one of a series of severe summer and autumn
    storms to affect shipping lanes that year.
    In 1904 The temperature at Charlotteburg NJ dipped to 23 degrees,
    the coldest reading of record for so early in the autumn
    for the state.
    In 1983 A thunderstorm downburst caused a timber blowdown in the
    Kaibab National Forest north of the Grand Canyon. 200
    acres were completely destroyed, and scattered
    destruction occurred across another 3300 acres. Many
    trees were snapped off at 15 to 30 feet above ground
    level.
    In 1987 Autumn began on a rather pleasant note for much of the
    nation. Showers and thunderstorms were confined to
    Florida and the southwestern deserts. Warm weather
    continued in the western U.S., and began to spread into
    the Great Plains Region, but even in the southwestern
    deserts readings remained below 100 degrees.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front in the south
    central U.S. produced severe weather in Oklahoma during
    the afternoon and early evening hours. Thunderstorms
    produced softball size hail near Noble and Enterprise,
    and baseball size hail at Lequire and Kinta. A tornado
    near Noble OK destroyed a mobile home injuring one
    person.
    In 1989 Seventeen cities in the north central U.S. reported
    record low temperatures for the date, including Devils
    Lake ND with a reading of 22 degrees. Jackson KY
    reported a record low of 41 degrees during the late
    afternoon. Strong northwest winds ushering cold air into
    the central and northeastern U.S. gusted to 55 mph at
    Indianapolis IN. Winds along the cold front gusted to 65
    mph at Norfolk VA, and thunderstorms along the cold front
    deluged Roseland NJ with 2.25 inches of rain in one hour.
    The temperature at Richmond VA plunged from 84 degrees to
    54 degrees in two hours. Snow and sleet was reported at
    Binghamton NY.

    In 1926 The temperature at Yellowstone Park dipped to nine
    degrees below zero. It was the coldest reading of record
    in the U.S. during September. Severe freezes were
    widespread over the northwestern U.S. causing great crop
    destruction. Spokane County WA experienced their
    earliest snow of record. Harney Branch Experiment
    Station in Oregon reported a temperature of 2 degrees
    above zero to establish a state record for the month of
    September.
    In 1950 A smoke pall from western Canada forest fires covered
    much of the eastern U.S. Daylight was reduced to
    nighttime darkness in parts of the Northeast. The color
    of the sun varied from pink to purple, blue, or lavendar.
    Yellow to grey-tan was common. (24th-30th)
    In 1972 Lightning struck a man near Waldport OR. The young
    man happened to be carrying thirty-five pieces
    of dynamite. A late evening thunderstorm produced
    downburst winds at Bismarck ND estimated at 125 to 150 mph.
    In 1987 The first full day of autumn proved to be a pleasant one
    for much of the nation, with sunny skies and mild
    temperatures. Thunderstorms again formed over Florida
    and the southwestern deserts, and also formed along a
    cold front in the northeastern U.S. A storm spotter at
    Earp CA sighted a couple of funnel clouds, one on the
    California side of the state line, and the other on the
    Arizona side.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing along a stationary front
    produced large hail and damaging winds in the
    southeastern U.S., with reports of severe weather most
    numerous in North Carolina. Golf ball size hail was
    reported at Tick Creek and a number of other locations in
    North Carolina.
    In 1989 Forty-seven cities between the Rockies and the
    Appalachians reported record low temperatures for the
    date. Lows of 38 at Abilene TX, 34 at Jackson KY, and 36
    at Midland TX established records for the month of
    September. The low of 36 degrees at Midland smashed
    their previous record for the date by thirteen degrees.
    Fayetteville AR and Springfield MO reported their
    earliest freeze of record. Thunderstorms produced
    torrential rains in northeastern Florida. Jacksonville was
    deluged with 11.40 inches of rain, and flash flooding
    resulted in two deaths.
    In 2001 An F-3 tornado struck the University Of Maryland campus at
    College Park, Maryland. Two sisters were killed when their
    car went airborne from the tornado. Over 50 were injured,
    and many other vehicles and buildings had their windows
    blown out, or suffered other damage. It was the deadliest
    tornado to strike the Baltimore/Washington area since 1929,
    and Maryland's first September killer tornado. Tornadoes
    also struck Culpepper County, Virginia, causing damage.

    In 1939 A west coast hurricane moved onshore south of Los Angeles
    bringing unprecedented rains along the southern coast of
    California. Nearly five and a half inches of rain
    drenched Los Angeles during a 24 hour period. The
    hurricane caused two million dollars damage, mostly to
    structures along the coast and to crops, and claimed 45
    lives at sea. "El Cordonazo" produced 5.66 inches of
    rain at Los Angeles and 11.6 inches of rain at Mount
    Wilson, both records for the month of September.
    In 1987 Hurricane Emily crossed the island of Bermuda during the
    early morning. Emily, moving northeast at 45 mph,
    produced wind gusts to 115 mph at Kindley Field. The
    thirty-five million dollars damage inflicted by Emily
    made it the worst hurricane to strike Bermuda since 1948.
    Parts of Michigan and Wisconsin experienced their first
    freeze of the autumn. Snow and sleet were reported in
    the Sheffield and Sutton areas of northeastern Vermont at
    midday.
    In 1988 Low pressure off the Northern Pacific Coast brought rain
    and gale force winds to the coast of Washington State.
    Fair weather prevailed across most of the rest of the
    nation.
    In 1989 Twenty-three cities in the south central U.S. reported
    record low temperatures for the date, including Topeka KS
    with a reading of 33 degrees, and Binghamton NY with a
    low of 25 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms in the

    In 1959 A tornado 440 yards in width traveled 20 miles from near
    Hollow OK to western Cherokee County KS. Although a
    strong tornado, it was very slow moving, and gave a
    tremendous warning roar, and no one was killed.
    In 1970 Afternoon highs of 103 degrees at Long Beach CA and
    105 degrees at the Los Angeles Civic Center were the

    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1927 An outbreak of tornadoes from Oklahoma to Indiana caused
    81 deaths and 25 million dollars damage. A tornado
    (possibly two tornadoes) cut an eight-mile long path
    across Saint Louis MO, to Granite City IL, killing 79
    persons. The damage path at times was a mile and a
    quarter in width. The storm followed a similar path to
    tornadoes which struck in 1871, 1896, and 1959.
    In 1938 5 tornadoes hit the Charleston SC area, damaging Market
    and Broad Streets. 27 people died and 80 were injured.
    In 1959 A storm produced 28 inches of snow at Colorado Springs CO.
    In 1983 Heavy rains began in central and eastern Arizona which
    culminated in the worst flood in the history of the
    state. Eight to ten inch rains across the area caused
    severe flooding in southeastern Arizona which resulted in
    thirteen deaths and 178 million dollars damage.
    President Reagan declared eight counties of Arizona to be
    disaster areas.
    In 1986 A week of violent weather began in Oklahoma which
    culminated in one of the worst flooding events in the
    history of the state. On the first day of the week early
    morning thunderstorms caused more than a million dollars
    damage in south Oklahoma City. Thunderstorms produced 4
    to 7 inches of rain from Hobart to Ponca City, and
    another round of thunderstorms that evening produced 7 to
    10 inches of rain in north central and northeastern
    sections of Oklahoma.
    In 1987 A slow moving cold front produced rain from the Great
    Lakes Region to the Central Gulf Coast Region. A late
    afternoon thunderstorm produced wind gusts to 62 mph at
    Buffalo NY. Warm weather continued in the western U.S.
    The afternoon high of 96 degrees at Medford OR was a
    record for the date.
    In 1988 High pressure brought freezing temperatures to parts
    of Vermont. Burlington VT dipped to 30 degrees, and
    Binghamton NY reported a record low of 34 degrees. High
    pressure also brought cold weather to the Central Rocky
    Mountain Region. Alamosa CO reported a record low of 18
    degrees, and Gunnison CO was the cold spot in the nation
    with a morning low of just five degrees above zero.
    In 1989 Seven cities reported record high temperatures for the
    date, as readings soared into the 80s and low 90s in the
    Northern Plateau and Northern Plains Region. Record
    highs included 91 degrees at Boise ID and 92 degrees at
    Sheridan WY. The high of 100 degrees at Tucson AZ marked
    their 51st record high of the year, and their 92nd day of
    100 degree weather.
    In 2002 Just 9 days after being deluged by Tropical Storm Isidore,
    Tropical Storm Lili brought more heavy rain and flooding
    to Jamaica.

    In 1959 Three tornadoes spawned by the remnants of Hurricane
    Gracie killed 12 persons at Ivy VA.
    In 1970 A nineteen month drought in southern California came to
    a climax. The drought, which made brush and buildings
    tinder dry, set up the worst fire conditions in
    California history as hot Santa Ana winds sent the
    temperature soaring to 105 degrees at Los Angeles, and to
    97 degrees at San Diego. During that last week of
    September whole communities of interior San Diego County
    were consumed by fire. Half a million acres were burned,
    and the fires caused 50 million dollars damage.
    In 1976 Hurricane Liza, with peak winds of 130 mph, sideswiped
    the southeast coast of Mexico's Baja California.
    In 1977 The temperature at Wichita Falls TX soared to 108 degrees
    to establish a record for September.
    In 1986 Thunderstorms, which had inundated northern sections of
    Oklahoma with heavy rain, temporarily shifted southward
    producing 4 to 8 inches rains from Shawnee to Stilwell.
    Baseball size hail and 80 mph winds ripped through parts
    of southeast Oklahoma City, and thunderstorm winds caused
    more than half a million dollars damage at Shawnee.
    In 1987 Afternoon thunderstorms in Michigan produced hail an inch
    in diameter at Pinckney, and wind gusts to 68 mph at
    Wyandotte. A thunderstorm in northern Indiana produced

    the western U.S. The afternoon high of 94 degrees at
    Fort Myers FL was their tenth record high for the month.
    Highs of 98 at Medford OR and 99 at Fresno CA were
    records for the date, and the temperature at Borrego
    Springs CA soared to 108 degrees.
    In 1989 Thirteen cities reported record high temperatures for the
    date, as readings soared into the upper 80s and 90s from
    the Northern and Central High Plains Region to Minnesota.
    Bismarck ND reported a record high of 95 degrees.
    Broadus MT reached 97 degrees. Afternoon thunderstorms
    developing along a cold front produced wind gusts to 60
    mph at Wendover UT.
    In 2015 It proved to be a dry September in much of Arkansas,
    especially in central and south Arkansas. Only .03" was
    measured in Pine Bluff, .04" at El Dorado, and .12" at
    Little Rock...the latter being the driest September on
    redord, dating back to 1874.

    In 1987 A blast of cold arctic air hit the north central U.S.
    An afternoon thunderstorm slickened the streets of Duluth
    MN with hail and snow, and later in the afternoon, strong
    northerly winds reached 70 mph. Unseasonably warm
    weather continued in the Pacific northwest. Highs of 90
    at Olympia WA, 92 at Portland OR, and 89 at Seattle WA,
    were records for October. For Seattle WA it marked the
    twenty-first daily record high for the year, a record
    total in itself.
    In 1988 Afternoon and evening thunderstorms produced severe
    weather across central Oklahoma and the eastern half of
    Texas. Thunderstorms in Texas produced softball size
    hail northwest of Nocona, and baseball size hail at Troy
    and Park Springs.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the southeastern
    U.S. through the daytime and evening hours. Severe
    thunderstorms spawned eleven tornadoes, with seven of

    the 1st deluged Phoenix with .68 inch of rain in five
    minutes, equalling their all-time record.
    In 1987 A fast moving cold front produced snow flurries from
    Minnesota to the Appalachian Mountains, and gale force
    winds behind the front ushered cold air into the Great
    Lakes Region. Valentine NE reported a record low of
    25 degrees. Temperatures recovered rapidly in the

    In 1988 Early morning thunderstorms in Georgia produced three
    inches of rain at Canton and Woodstock.
    In 1989 Flooding due to thunderstorm rains in the southeastern
    U.S. on the last day of September and the first day of
    October caused the Etowah River to rise seven feet above
    flood stage at Canton GA. Thunderstorms produced up to
    ten inches of rain in northeastern Georgia, with six
    inches reported at Athens GA in 24 hours. One man was
    killed, and another man was injured, when sucked by

    In 1841 An October gale, the worst of record for Nantucket MA,
    caught the Cap Cod fishing fleet at sea. Forty ships
    were driven ashore on Cape Cod, and 57 men perished from
    the town of Truro alone. Heavy snow fell inland, with 18

    U.S. Phoenix AZ reported a record high of 105 degrees.
    In 1989 Unseasonably cold weather prevailed from the Pacific
    Northwest to the Upper Mississippi Valley. A dozen
    cities reported record low temperatures for the date,
    including Bismarck ND and Williston ND with readings
    of 16 degrees above zero. An upper level weather
    disturbance brought snow to parts of Idaho, Wyoming
    and Montana, with five inches at West Yellowstone MT.
    In 2000 (3rd-4th) A non-tropical system developed rapidly over
    South Florida, spawning torrential rains, severe flash
    flooding, and several tornadoes. Miami International
    Airport measured 7 inches of rain in 2 hours, with a 33
    hour storm total of over 15 inches. Nearly 100,000 homes

    In 1777 The Battle of Germantown was fought in a morning fog that
    grew more dense with the smoke of battle, causing great
    confusion. Americans firing at each other contributed to
    the loss of the battle.
    In 1869 A great storm struck New England. The storm reportedly
    was predicted twelve months in advance by a British

    31.2 inches.
    In 1986 Excessive flooding was reported along the Mississippi
    River and all over the Midwest, from Ohio to the Milk

    flooding of record. During heavy rains, a motorist was
    killed near Rankin, Texas after her car was swept over
    a mile through rushing water.
    In 1987 A storm brought record snows to the northeastern U.S.
    Snowfall totals ranged up to 21 inches at North
    Springfield VT. It was the earliest snow of record for
    some locations. The storm claimed 17 lives, in central
    New York State injured 332 persons, and in Vermont caused
    seventeen million dollars damage. The six inch snow at
    Albany NY was their earliest measurable snow in 117 years
    of records. Southern California continued to "shake and
    bake". An earthquake was reported during the morning, the
    second in a matter of days, and during the afternoon,
    temperatures soared well above 100 degrees. Highs of 100
    degrees at San Francisco, and 108 degrees at Los Angeles
    and Santa Maria, were October records. San Luis Obispo
    was the hot spot in the nation with a high of 111 degrees.
    In 1988 Temperatures dipped below freezing in the north central
    U.S. Five cities in North Dakota and Nebraska reported
    record low temperatures for the date, including Bismarck
    ND with a reading of 17 degrees above zero. Low pressure
    brought snow and sleet to parts of Upper Michigan.
    In 1989 Unseasonably cold weather continued in the north central
    U.S., with freezing temperatures reported across much of
    the area from eastern North Dakota to Michigan and
    northwest Ohio. Thirteen cities reported record low

    which was the cold spot in the nation with a morning low
    of 19 degrees.
    In 2011 A massive dust storm moved through Arizona, about 20 miles
    north of Tucson, causing a chain reaction multiple vehicle
    crash. Minimal visibility was reported on Interstate 10,
    with at least one person killed, and two sustaining
    critical injuries.
    In 2013 While severe thunderstorms and tornadoes were out ahead
    of a strong cold front in Iowa and east Nebraska...a
    massive blizzard was raging in parts of Wyoming, west
    Nebraska, and the Dakotas. Wayne, Nebraska was hit by an
    EF-4 tornado.

    tropical storm entered the state with its circulation
    still intact. The center was over Flagstaff early on the
    7th. (3rd-7th)
    In 1987 It was another day of scorching heat for the southwestern
    U.S. Afternoon highs of 102 degrees at Downtown San

    Raymond deluged southeastern Arizona with heavy rain. Up
    to 4.5 inches was reported north of Wilcox. Three-
    fourths of the streets in the town of Wilcox were left
    under eighteen inches of water, and damage exceeded a
    million dollars. Evening thunderstorms developing along a
    cold front produced severe weather in Oklahoma and the
    Texas panhandle. Thunderstorms produced high winds which
    gusted to 80 mph at White Deer TX, and resulted in one
    death at Pocasset OK. Thunderstorms produced golf ball
    size hail at Pampa TX and Lefors TX.
    In 2000 After hitting Central America in late September with 135
    mph winds, hurricane Keith made landfall a second time,

    In 1981 A Fokker F-28 aircraft crashed in Holland after its starboard
    wing was ripped away by a funnel cloud.
    In 1984 The temperature at Honolulu, Hawaii, reached 94 degrees
    to establish an all-time record at that location.
    In 1985 A tropical wave, later to become Tropical Storm Isabel

    24 hours, and the severe flooding and numerous landslides
    resulting from the rain claimed about 180 lives.
    In 1987 The western U.S. continued to sizzle. Afternoon highs of

    In 1970 Widespread flooding took place across Puerto Rico.
    Rainfall amounts for the day ranged up to seventeen
    inches at Aibonito. A slow moving tropical depression
    was responsible for six days of torrential rains across
    the island. Totals in the Eastern Interior Division
    averaged thirty inches, with 38.4 inches at Jayuya.
    Flooding claimed eighteen lives, and resulted in
    62 million dollars damage.
    In 1981 Seattle WA received four inches of rain in 24 hours,
    a record for the city.
    In 1987 It was another hot day in the southwestern U.S. Tucson
    AZ hit 101 degrees for the second day in a row to again
    equal their record for the month of October. Phoenix AZ
    reported a record high of 103 degrees, and Blythe CA and
    Yuma AZ tied for honors as the hot spot in the nation
    with afternoon highs of 108 degrees.
    In 1988 Morning fog in the central U.S. reduced the visibility to
    near zero at some locations. Morning lows of 28 at
    Rockford IL and 24 at Waterloo IA were records for the
    date. Afternoon highs of 92 degrees at Hollywood FL and
    Miami FL were records for the date.
    In 1989 Morning thunderstorms in central Texas drenched
    San Antonio with 3.10 inches of rain in six hours causing
    local flooding in northeastern sections of the city.
    Temperatures dipped below the freezing mark from the
    Northern Rockies to the Upper Mississippi Valley.

    In 1871 Prolonged drought and dessicating winds led to the great
    Chicago fire, the Peshtigo horror, and the Michigan fire
    holocaust. Fire destroyed more than seventeen thousand
    buildings killing more than 200 persons in the city of
    Chicago, while a fire consumed the town of Peshtigo WI
    killing more than 1100 persons. In Wisconsin, a million
    acres of land were burned, and in Michigan, 2.5 million
    acres were burned killing 200 persons. "Tornadoes of
    fire" generated by intense heat caused houses to explode
    in fire, and burned to death scores of persons seeking
    refuge in open fields.
    In 1901 A deluge at Galveston TX produced nearly twelve inches of
    rain in about a six hour period. The rains came
    precisely thirteen months after the day of the famous
    Galveston hurricane disaster.
    In 1982 An unusually early snowstorm hit the northern Black Hills
    of Wyoming and South Dakota. The storm produced up to 54
    inches of snow, and winds as high as 70 mph. The
    snowfall was very much dependent upon topography. Rapid
    City, 20 miles away, received just a trace of snow.
    In 1987 Unseasonably cold weather prevailed from the Upper
    Mississippi Valley to the southeastern U.S. Thirty
    cities reported record low temperatures for the date,
    including Madison WI with a reading of 22 degrees. The
    low of 28 degrees at Evansville IN was the coolest of
    record for so early in the season. Hot weather continued
    in the southwestern U.S. Phoenix AZ reported a record
    high of 104 degrees, and a record tying 116 days of 100
    degree weather for the year. Tucson AZ established an
    all-time record with 72 days of 100 degree weather for
    the year.
    In 1988 Snow was reported across parts of northern New England.
    Two inches blanketed Mount Snow VT. Warm weather
    continued in the northwestern U.S. The afternoon high of
    80 degrees at Stampede Pass WA exceeded their previous
    record for October by seven degrees.
    In 1989 Morning lows in the 20s were reported from the Northern
    Plains to the Upper Great Lakes. International Falls MN
    and Marquette MI reported record lows of 22 degrees.
    Unseasonably warm weather prevailed in central California
    as the Oakland Athletics won the American League pennant.
    San Luis Obispo CA reported a high of 99 degrees.
    In 2001 Hurricane Iris, with 145 mph winds, slammed into Placencia,
    Mexico...between Belize City, Belize, and Monkey River
    Town...affecting much of the same area that was hit by
    Hurricane Mitch in 1998. At one time, the storm had three
    eyewalls, reported by Hurricane Hunter aircraft; although
    the total area of the storm was rather small.

    In 1804 A famous snow hurricane occurred. The unusual coastal
    storm caused northerly gales from Maine to New Jersey.
    Heavy snow fell across New England, with three feet at
    the crest of the Green Mountains, and a foot of snow in
    the Berkshires, at Goshen CT.
    In 1920 The temperature at Minneapolis MN reached 90 degrees,
    their latest such reading of record.
    In 1973 Fifteen to 20 inch rains deluged north central Oklahoma
    in thirteen hours producing record flooding. Enid was
    drenched with 15.68 inches of rain from the nearly
    stationary thunderstorms, which established a state
    24 hour rainfall record. Dover OK reported 125 of 150
    homes damaged by flooding.
    In 1979 A storm blanketed Worcester MA with 7.5 inches of snow,
    a record snowfall total for so early in the season for

    In 1983 Lightning struck a CB antenna on a moving car in Iowa and
    formed a fireball in the front seat as the radio burned.
    In 1987 Eleven cities in the north central U.S. reported record
    low temperatures for the date, including Colorado Springs
    CO with a reading of 23 degrees, and Havre MT with a low

    as Kansas. Omaha NE reported their third earliest snow
    of record.
    In 1988 Sunny and mild weather prevailed across the nation for
    Columbus Day. The afternoon high of 77 degrees at
    Kalispell MT was the warmest reading of record for so
    late in the autumn season. Thunderstorms developing
    along a cold front produced wind gusts to 56 mph at
    Lorain OH. Snowflakes were observed at Milwuakee WI
    around Noon, but quickly changed to rain as temperature
    readings were in the lower 60s.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms produced torrential rains along the
    northeast coast of Florida. St. Augustine was deluged with
    16.08 inches of rain. The heavy rain caused extensive
    flooding of homes and businesses, and left some roads
    under three feet of water. Ten cities from the Carolinas
    to New England reported record low temperatures for the
    date, including Concord NH with a reading of 23 degrees.
    Temperatures dipped into the 30s in the Carolinas.
    In 2001 A slow moving cold front, an area of low pressure, and

    In 1925 Widespread early season snows fell in the northeastern
    U.S., with as much as two feet in New Hampshire and
    Vermont. The heavy snow blocked roads and cancelled
    football games.
    In 1954 A deluge of 6.72 inches of rain in 48 hours flooded the
    Chicago River, causing ten million dollars damage in the
    Chicago area. (9th-11th)
    In 1987 More than thirty cities in the Upper Midwest reported
    record low temperatures for the date, including Waterloo
    IA and Scottsbluff NE where the mercury dipped to 16
    degrees. Tropical Storm Floyd brought heavy rain to
    southern Florida, moisture from Hurricane Ramon produced
    heavy rain in southern California, and heavy snow
    blanketed the mountains of New York State and Vermont.
    In 1988 Low pressure brought gale force winds to the Great Lakes
    Region, with snow and sleet reported in some areas.
    Unseasonably warm weather prevailed in the north central
    U.S. The mercury hit 84 degrees at Cutbank MT and
    Worland WY. The temperature at Gunnison CO soared from
    a morning low of 12 degrees to a high of 66 degrees.
    In 1989 Much of the nation enjoyed "Indian Summer" type weather.

    97 degrees at Waco TX. Strong winds along a cold front
    crossing the Northern High Plains Region gusted to 80 mph
    at Ames Monument WY during the early morning.
    In 2002 Tropical Depression Kyle finally dissipated after 3
    weeks...being the third longest storm in the Atlantic
    basin...behind Inga (1969) and Ginger (1971).
    In 2017 Ophelia became the 10th consecutive storm to become a
    hurricane in the Atlantic basin...tying a record set in

    northeastern U.S. Bridgewater NY received 18 inches, a
    foot of snow fell at Madison NY, and for the third time
    all the mountains of the northeastern U.S. were whitened.
    In 1918 Forest fires ravaged parts of Minnesota from the Duluth
    area northeastward, claiming the lives of 600 persons.
    Smoke with a smell of burnt wood spread to Albany NY and
    Washington D.C. in 24 hours. Smoke was noted at
    Charleston SC on the 14th, and by the 15th was reported
    in northeastern Texas.
    In 1962 The "Columbus Day Big Blow" occurred in the Pacific
    Northwest. It was probably the most damaging windstorm
    of record west of the Cascade Mountains. Winds reached
    hurricane force, with gusts above 100 mph. More than 3.5
    billion board feet of timber were blown down, and
    communications were severely disrupted due to downed
    power lines. The storm claimed 48 lives, and caused 210
    million dollars damage.
    In 1987 Floyd, the only hurricane to make landfall the entire

    The hurricane caused great damage at Key West FL, and at
    Philadelphia PA was the most destructive storm in thirty
    years.
    In 1986 Four tornadoes struck southeastern Virginia late in the
    night causing three million dollars damage. Tornadoes at

    In 1880 A violent early season blizzard raked Minnesota and the
    Dakotas. Winds gusted to 70 mph at Yankton SD, and snow
    drifts 10 to 15 feet high were reported in northwest Iowa
    and southeast South Dakota. Saint Paul MN reported a
    barometric pressure of 28.65 inches on the 16th.
    Railroads were blocked by drifts of snow which remained
    throughout the severe winter to follow. Gales did
    extensive damage to ships on the Great Lakes. (15th-16th)
    In 1954 Hurricane Hazel struck the Carolina coastline.
    The hurricane demolished every pier along a 170 mile
    stretch from Myrtle Beach SC to Cedar Island NC, and
    obliterated entire lines of beach homes. Hurricane Hazel
    also destroyed 1500 homes as it moved inland with
    seventeen foot tides. Winds between Myrtle Beach SC and
    Cape Fear NC gusted to 150 mph. Hurricane Hazel caused
    163 million dollars damage, and claimed the lives of 98
    persons.
    In 1966 Iowa experienced its worst late season tornado of record.
    In just one minute a twister tore through the town of
    Belmond leveling 75 percent of the businesses, and 100
    homes, causing more than eleven million dollars damage.
    In 1987 Unseasonably cold weather continued in the eastern U.S.,
    with thirteen cities reporting record low temperatures
    for the date. The low of 34 degrees at Montgomery AL was
    their coldest reading of record for so early in the
    season. Lows of 32 at Harrisburg PA and 34 at
    Parkersburg WV marked their third straight morning of
    record cold.
    In 1988 The cold high pressure system responsible for the record
    low temperatures in the eastern U.S. began to move out to
    sea, giving way to a trend toward "Indian Summer".
    Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front produced
    golf ball size hail at Altamont KS and hail two inches in
    diameter at Yates City IL.
    In 1989 Hurricane Jerry made landfall at Galveston TX at 6:30 PM
    CDT. Winds at the Galveston Airport reached 75 mph, with
    gusts to 100 mph. Tides along the island were six to
    eight feet, and rainfall totals ranged up to slightly
    more than six inches north of Beaumont. Three persons
    were killed when their vehicle was blown off the
    Galveston seawall into the pounding surf. Total damage
    along the Upper Texas Coast was estimated at fifteen
    million dollars. Thunderstorms produced severe weather
    in Lower Michigan during the late morning. Two persons
    were injured when a tree fell on their camper at the
    Traverse City State park. While strong northerly winds
    ushered much colder air into the central U.S.,
    unseasonably warm weather continued in the south central
    and eastern U.S. The afternoon high of 82 degrees at
    Bluefield WV was a record for October.
    In 2015 The temperature at Little Rock Arkansas broke a record
    with a searing 98 degree high. It was the hottest October
    day in Little Rock Weather History, and the hottest it has
    been in Little Rock so late in the year.

    the nearby Alta Ski Resort. The town of Magna, located
    ten miles west of Salt Lake City, did not receive any
    snow at all. The storm was responsible for a fifty
    vehicle pile-up along Interstate 15 near Farmington UT.
    In 1987 It was a great day for an Oktoberfest, or to enjoy the
    colors of autumn, as much of the nation enjoyed sunny and
    mild weather. Columbia SC dipped to 34 degrees marking
    their third morning in a row of record cold. Bakersfield
    CA reached 80 degrees for the 143rd day in a row to break
    a record established in 1940.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the Middle
    Mississippi Valley and the Lower Ohio Valley. Severe
    thunderstorms spawned three tornadoes in Indiana,
    including one which injured four persons. Strong
    thunderstorm winds at Connerville IN caused three million
    dollars damage. Thunderstorms in Illinois produced hail
    two inches in diameter at Colfax.
    In 1989 Showers and thunderstorms representing the remnants of
    Hurricane Jerry deluged southeast Kentucky with four
    to six inches of rain in 18 to 24 hours, resulting in
    widespread flash flooding. Flooding resulted in more
    than five million dollars damage. Temperatures again
    warmed into the 80s and lower 90s in the southeastern
    U.S. Lakeland FL and Orlando FL reported record highs of
    95 degrees.

    falling tree near Coushatta LA. Snow squalls in the
    Lower Great Lakes Region produced heavy snow in western
    New York State, with 12 inches reported at Colden.
    In 1989 Unseasonably warm weather continued in the north central
    U.S. Afternoon highs of 78 at Alpena MI, 75 at Duluth
    MN, 79 at Fargo ND, 77 at International Falls MN, 76 at
    Marquette MI, 75 at Sault Ste Marie MI, and 80 at Saint
    Cloud MN, were all the warmest of record for so late in
    the season. Morning lows of 63 degrees at Concordia KS
    and Omaha NE were the warmest of record for the date.
    In 1998 Hurricane Mitch, which eventually devastated Central
    America with severe flooding, strengthened to a category
    five hurricane, with winds of 180 mph.
    In 2003 Strong Santa Ana winds fanned several wildfires across
    southern California. Many buildings were destroyed, and
    an FAA Air Traffic Control Center was shut down for a
    time in the area, disrupting many flights in and out of
    the region. An NFL Football game originally scheduled in
    in the area had to be moved to Tempe, AZ. The fires
    continued into early November. Several people were killed
    with the raging fires, including some firefighters.

    In 1764 A "very remarkable storm of snow with high winds"
    produced 22 inches at Rutland in central Massachusetts.
    In 1929 A snowstorm dumped 27 inches upon Ishpeming MI in
    24 hours to establish a state record.
    In 1962 An early season winter storm over New England blanketed
    northern Maine with 7 to 16 inches of snow, and
    southeastern New England with up to 3 inches of snow.
    Worcester MA received a record 4.7 inches of snow.
    In 1972 A sleeping couple in FL were awakened by rain after a
    tornado removed the roof. They escaped as the house blew
    away.
    In 1987 Showers and thunderstorms produced locally heavy rain
    from Virginia to New York State. Fallen leaves made
    roads and sidewalks slick, and also clogged sewers.
    Rainfall totals of 1.55 inches at Newark NJ, 1.54 inches
    at Harrisburg PA, 1.27 inches at Scranton PA, and 1.22
    inches at Atlantic City NJ, were records for the date.
    In 1988 Low pressure brought snow and gale force winds to the
    Great Lakes Region, and snow and high winds to the north
    central U.S. Winds gusted to 47 mph at Lansin MI, and
    reached 55 mph at Pierre SD.
    In 1989 Wintry weather invaded the northwestern U.S. A storm
    crossing the Central Rockies produced up to 23 inches of
    snow in the mountains east of Salt Lake City UT. "Indian
    Summer" continued in the Lower Ohio Valley and the Upper
    Great Lakes Region. Afternoon highs of 71 at Marquette
    MI and 72 at Sault Ste Marie MI were records for the date.
    In 2017 Sleet fell across portions of Arkansas in the wake of a
    cold front that moved across the state. Sleet counts as
    snow, and the sleet that fell at Little Rock, made it the
    earliest snow on record for a winter at Little Rock.

    website at www.ncdc.noaa.gov
    In 1936 The temperature at Layton NJ dipped to 9 above zero to
    establish a state record for the month of October.
    In 1971 A severe early season blizzard raged across the Plateau
    Region and Rocky Mountain Region. Heavy snow blocked
    railroads and interstate highways, and record cold
    accompanied the storm. Lander WY received 27 inches of
    snow, and the temperature at Big Piney WY plunged to
    15 degrees below zero.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms over the San Joaquin Valley of California
    produced 0.75 inch of rain in thirty minutes at
    Placerville, and caused numerous power outages due to
    lightning. Rain began to diminish in the northeastern
    U.S., but some flooding continued in Vermont, eastern New
    York State and northern New Jersey. One inch rains in
    Vermont clogged culverts and sewers with fallen leaves,
    resulting in erosion of dirt roads.
    In 1988 Arctic cold invaded the north central U.S. Valentine NE
    dipped to 8 degrees, and Cutbank MT reported a morning
    low of one degree above zero. The temperature at Estes
    Park CO dipped to 15 degrees, but then soared thirty
    degrees in less than thirty minutes.
    In 1989 A storm crossing the western U.S. produced 10 to 20
    inches of snow across northern and central Wyoming, with
    22 inches reported at Burgess Junction. Seven cities in
    the Lower Ohio Valley and the Upper Great Lakes Region
    reported record high temperatures for the date as
    readings again warmed into the 70s. Alpena MI reported
    a record high of 75 degrees.
    In 2013 A major Atlantic storm pummeled England, France, Belgium,
    Germany, the Netherlands, and Denmark, killing at least
    13 people. Fallen trees blocked rail lines and roads
    across southern England. Widespread power outages were
    noted, with winds near 100 mph recorded on the Isle Of
    Wright, off the southern coast.

    In 1917 The temperature at Denver CO dipped to zero, and at Soda
    Butte WY the mercury plunged to 33 degrees below zero, a
    U.S. record for the month of October.
    In 1942 A tornado struck the town of Berryville in northwest
    Arkansas killing 20 persons and causing half a million
    dollars damage.
    In 1956 A violent tornado, or series of tornadoes, moved along a
    path more than 100 miles in length from south of North
    Platte NE into Rock County NE. It was an unusually late
    occurence so far north and west in the U.S. for such a
    storm.
    In 1987 Severe thunderstorms in Arizona produced wind gusts to 86
    mph at the Glendale Airport near Phoenix, baseball size
    hail and 70 mph winds at Wickenburg, and up to an inch of
    rain in fifteen minutes in Yavapai County and northwest
    Maricopa County. Arizona Public Service alone reported
    2.5 million dollars damage from the storms.
    In 1988 Wintry weather prevailed in the Upper Midwest. South
    Bend IN equalled their record for October with a low of
    23 degrees. International Falls MN reported a record low
    of 11 degrees in the morning, then dipped down to
    8 degrees above zero late in the evening.
    In 1989 Thunderstorms developing along a cold front produced
    severe weather in Oklahoma and north central Texas during
    the late afternoon and evening hours. Thunderstorms in
    Oklahoma produced weak tornadoes near Snyder and
    Davidson, and produced hail two inches in diameter at
    Altus. Large hail damaged 60 to 80 percent of the cotton
    crop in Tillman County OK. Nine cities in the northeastern
    U.S. reported record high temperatures for the date as
    readings warmed into the 70s. For Marquette MI, it marked
    their fifth straight day of record warmth. Arctic cold
    invaded the western U.S. Lows of 7 above at Alamosa CO and
    9 above at Elko NV were records for the date.
    In 2003 A powerful storm battered Washington state, knocking out
    power to thousands of people, with battering waves severely
    damaging a dockside restaurant in Mukilteo. While no one
    was injured at the restaurant, one person was killed by a
    falling tree elsewhere.
    In 2011 (29th-30th) An intense nor'easter brought heavy wet snow to
    much of the northeast U.S. from Pennsylvania and Virginia
    into Maine and the rest of New England. Over 4 million
    people were without power, and at least 5 fatalities
    occurred in the storm. The heavy wet snow falling onto
    trees that still had fall foliage on them, brought many
    branches crashing down onto roads and power lines.
    Widespread travel disruptions occurred as well. It was
    earliest winter (October) snow on record in some areas,
    with many areas having more than a foot or more of snow.
    In 2012 (22nd-31st) After affecting the Caribbean, causing flooding
    and deaths in Jamaica, Haiti, and the Bahamas,
    Post-Tropical Cyclone Sandy made landfall at Atlantic City,
    New Jersey, with 80 mph winds, and a pressure of 946
    millibars (27.93"). A large area of warnings for high
    winds, flooding, and even blizzard conditions was across
    much of the eastern US from the Carolinas into New
    England. Millions of people were without power, and all
    modes of transportation to and from the northeast US were
    shut down, because of the storm.

    In 1925 Nashville TN was blanketed with an inch of snow, their
    earliest measurable snow of record.
    In 1947 The Donora PA smog disaster finally came to an end. For
    five days an inversion trapped impurities in the lower
    atmosphere over the Monongahela Valley killing
    20 persons, and leaving more than 2000 others sick.
    (26th-30th)
    In 1987 Severe thunderstorms in Oklahoma produced golf ball size
    hail and wind gusts to 74 mph near the town of Gould.
    Unseasonably warm weather prevailed across the central
    U.S. Temperatures warmed into the 80s form Texas to the
    Lower Missouri Valley.
    In 1988 Ten cities in the Upper Midwest reported record low
    temperatures for the date. The morning low of 20 at
    South Bend IN was a record for October, and lows of 18 at
    Grand rapids MI and 20 at Fort Wayne In equalled records
    for October. The low of 2 above zero at International
    Falls MN smashed their previous record for the date by 11
    degrees. Syracuse NY received 2.9 inches of snow to
    establish a record for October with 5.7 inches for the
    month.
    In 1989 Temperatures again soared into the 70s in the
    northeastern U.S. The record high of 73 degrees at
    Alpena MI marked their sixth straight day of record
    warmth. In the western U.S., Klamath Falls OR reported
    a record low of 19 degrees.

    In 1846 Eighty-seven pioneers were trapped by early snows in the
    Sierra Nevada Mountains that piled five feet deep, with
    30 to 40 foot drifts. Just 47 persons survived the
    "Donner Pass Tradgedy".
    In 1950 Unseasonably warm weather prevailed in the central U.S.
    for Halloween. The temperature soared to 83 degrees at
    Minneapolis MN, their warmest reading of record for so
    late in the season.
    In 1965 Fort Lauderdale FL was deluged with 13.81 inches of rain,
    which brought their rainfall total for the month of
    October to an all-time record of 42.43 inches. (30th-
    31st)
    In 1987 Halloween was a wet one in the southwestern U.S.
    Heavy rain in southern California resulted in numerous
    mudslides. Weather-related auto accidents resulted in
    three deaths and twenty-five injuries. Mount Wilson CA
    received 3.14 inches of rain in 24 hours. Yakima WA
    reported measurable rainfall for the first time since the
    18th of July. The 103 day long dry spell was their
    longest of record.
    In 1988 Twenty-two cities in the northeastern U.S. reported
    record low temperatures for the date. The low of 19 at
    Cleveland OH was a record for October, and morning lows
    of 21 at Allentown PA and Bridgeport CT tied October
    records. Nine cities in the southwestern U.S. reported
    record high temperatures for the date, including Phoenix
    AZ with a reading of 96 degrees. Showers made Halloween
    a soggy one in the southeastern U.S.
    In 1989 Halloween night was a soggy one in New England. Showers
    in the northeastern U.S. produced more than an inch and
    a half of rain in six hours at some locations.
    An invasion of cold arctic air brought an abrupt end to a
    week of "Indian Summer" type weather in the Great Lakes
    Region, and brought snow and subzero wind chill readings
    to the Northern Plains. In Colorado, Alamosa was the
    cold spot in the nation with a record low of two degrees
    above zero, and a Halloween night storm brought 3 to 6
    inches of snow to the Front Range, and 5 to 10 inches to
    the nearby foothills. Icy streets around Denver the next
    morning made for a rather spooky commute.
    In 1999 Little Rock, AR experienced its wettest Halloween ever,
    with over 3 inches of rain in some parts of the state,
    more than double the previous rainfall record for the
    date.
    In 2013 A large area of rain and thunderstorms...some severe...
    extended from Texas east into the Lower Mississippi Valley
    region. Many areas from Texas into Louisiana got over 6
    inches of rain, with a flood emergency being declared in
    Austin, Texas. Several tornadoes were also noted across
    southeast Texas, Louisiana, and into Mississippi.

    In 1927 A great Vermont flood occurred. Tropical rains deluged
    the Green Mountain area of Vermont causing the worst
    flood in the history of the state. Torrential rains, up
    to 15 inches in the higher elevations, sent streams on a
    rampage devastating the Winooski Valley. Flooding
    claimed 200 lives and caused 40 million dollars damage.
    The town of Vernon reported 84 deaths. Flooding left up
    to eight to ten feet of water in downtown Montpelier VT.

    of rain in the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia
    causing devastating damage and claiming forty lives.
    In 1987 Thirty-two cities in the eastern and south central U.S.
    reported record high temperatures for the date. Highs of
    74 degrees at Portland ME and 86 degrees at Fort Smith AR
    equalled November records. It was the fourth day of
    record warmth for Beckley WV, Memphi TN and Paducah KY.
    A cold front ushered much colder air into the north
    central U.S. Gale force winds lashed all five Great
    Lakes.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a fast moving cold
    front produced severe weather over the Tennessee Valley
    and the Central Gulf Coast States during the afternoon
    and evening hours, and into the next morning. Thunder-
    storms spawned nineteen tornadoes, including eleven in
    Mississippi. The last of the nineteen tornadoes killed
    a woman in her mobile home in Lee FL. A tornado in
    Culbert AL injured sixteen people, and caused two million
    dollars damage. Thunderstorms also produced baseball
    size hail in Alabama. Unseasonably hot air prevailed
    south of the cold front. McAllen TX was the hot spot in
    the nation with a high of 102 degrees.
    In 1989 Snow and high winds plagued parts of Colorado and
    Wyoming. Winds gusted to 71 mph near Wheatland WY,
    and reached 80 mph west of Fort Collins CO. Up to five

    dorms. Thirty-eight persons perished at a trailer park
    along the stream.
    In 1987 A storm off the coast of California produced stormy
    weather in the southwestern U.S. Flash flooding stranded
    8000 persons in the Death Valley National Park of
    southern California. Thunderstorms over southern Nevada
    produced dime size hail and wind gusts to 68 mph around
    Las Vegas. Unseasonably mild weather in the northeastern
    U.S. was replaced with snow and gale force winds.
    In 1988 A powerful low pressure system produced high winds from
    the Great Plains to New England, and produced heavy snow
    in northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Winds gusted
    to 64 mph at Knoxville TN, and reached 80 mph at Pleasant
    Valley VT.
    In 1989 "Mother Nature" used Sunday as a day of rest, as rather
    tranquil weather prevailed across the nation. Tempera-
    tures warmed into the 80s across much of Texas. Highs of
    86 degrees at Abilene, Fort Worth and San Angelo were
    records for the date.

    In 1951 Snow fell from the Texas panhandle to the Lower Great
    Lakes, leaving record totals of 12.5 inches at Saint
    Louis MO, and 14.1 inches at Springfield MO. Other
    heavier snowfall totals included 20 inches at Nevada MO,
    13.5 inches at Sedan KS, 13 inches at Decature IL, and 10
    inches at Alva OK. In the Saint Louis area, up to 20
    inches was reported in Washington County. (5th-6th)
    In 1987 High winds in the northeastern U.S., making the recent
    unseasonably warm weather a distant memory, gusted to 63
    mph at Rhode Island. Squalls resulting from the high
    winds produced five inches of snow at Marquette MI and 7
    inches at Rome NY. A storm in the southwestern U.S.
    brought heavy snow to some of the higher elevations of
    Arizona, Colorado and Utah.
    In 1988 A powerful low pressure system over the Great Lakes
    Region continued to produce snow across parts of the Ohio
    Valley and the Great Lakes Region. Snowfall totals along
    the shore of Lake Superior reached 24 inches, with three
    feet of snow reported in the Porcupine Mountain area of
    Upper Michigan. Marquette MI established a November
    record with 17.3 inches of snow in 24 hours.
    In 1989 Unseasonably warm weather prevailed in the south central
    and southeastern U.S. Nine cities from Florida to
    Oklahoma and Texas reported record high temperatures for
    the date as readings warmed into the 80s. The high of 89
    degrees at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport in Texas
    equalled their record for November.

    In 1940 The Galloping Gertie bridge at Tacoma WA collapsed in
    strong winds, resulting in a six million dollar loss, just
    four months after the grand opening of the new bridge.
    The winds caused the evenly sized spans of the bridge to
    begin to vibrate until the central one finally collapsed.
    From then on, bridges were constructed with spans of
    varying size.
    In 1951 At 7 AM a blinding flash, a huge ball of fire, and a
    terrific roar occurred over parts of Texas, Oklahoma and
    Kansas, caused by a disintregrating meteor. Windows were
    broken in and near Hinton OK by the concussion.
    In 1986 An early season blizzard struck the Northern Plains
    Region. North Dakota took the brunt of the storm with
    wind gusts to 70 mph, and snowfall totals ranged up to 25
    inches at Devils Lake.
    In 1987 Heavy snow fell across parts of eastern New York State
    overnight, with twelve inches reported at the town of
    Piseco, located in the Mohawk Valley. A storm in the
    southwestern U.S. left nine inches of snow at the Winter
    Park ski resort in Colorado. Smoke from forest fires
    reduced visibilities to less than a mile at some
    locations from North Carolina to Ohio and Pennsylvania.
    In 1988 Unseasonably warm weather continued across the state of
    Texas. Seven cities reported record high temperatures
    for the date, including Waco and Del Rio with readings of
    92 degrees. McAllen was the hot spot in the nation with
    an afternoon high of 96 degrees.
    In 1989 Shortly after daybreak strong thunderstorms developed in
    a narrow, but almost stationary, east-west band across
    the New Orleans area in southeastern Louisiana. As a
    result, heavy rains persisted over the same area until
    mid afternoon before tapering off, and triggered flash
    flooding across a five county area. Rains of 8 to 12
    inches deluged the area between 9 AM and 6 PM, and totals
    for the 48 hour period ending at 7 AM on the 8th ranged
    up to 19.78 inches, between Lake Lexy and Lake Borgne.
    Approximately 6000 homes in the area reported water
    damage. The rainfall total for November of 19.81 inches
    at New Orleans was their highest total for any given
    month of the year.

    In 1870 The first storm warning was issued by the U.S. Signal
    Corps Weather Service.
    In 1943 An early season snowstorm raged across eastern South
    Dakota and Minnesota into northern Wisconsin. The storm
    produced 22 inches of snow at Fairbult and Marshall MN,
    20 inches at Redwood Falls MN, and 10.1 inches at
    Minneapolis. Drifts fifteen feet high were reported in
    Cottonwood County MN. The storm produced up to two feet
    of snow in South Dakota, smothering a million Thanksgiving
    Day turkeys. (6th-8th)
    In 1953 Residents of New York City suffered through ten days of
    smog, resulting in 200 deaths.
    In 1966 The temperature in downtown San Francisco reached a
    November record of 86 degrees.
    In 1987 Thunderstorms over Texas produced locally heavy rains in
    the Hill Country, with 3.50 inches reported at Lakeway,
    and 3.72 inches reported at Anderson Mill. Thunderstorms
    over Louisiana produced hail an inch in diameter at Clay
    and at Provencial. Blustery northwest winds, ushering
    cold air into western Kansas and into northwest Texas,
    gusted to 46 mph at Hill City KS.
    In 1988 Fair weather prevailed across much of the nation for
    Election Day. Midland TX equalled their record for
    November with an afternoon high of 89 degrees, and the
    record high of 87 degrees at Roswell NM was their fifth
    in eight days.
    In 1989 Afternoon and evening thunderstorms developing along and
    ahead of a cold front produced severe weather from
    northern Louisiana into central Georgia. Thunderstorms
    spawned three tornadoes, and there were sixty-four
    reports of large hail or damaging winds. A late
    afternoon thunderstorm in central Georgia spawned
    a tornado which killed one person and injured eight
    others at Pineview. Late afternoon thunderstorms in
    central Mississippi produced baseball size hail around
    Jackson, and wind gusts to 70 mph at Walnut Grove.
    In 2013 Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest tropical
    cyclones ever observed, made landfall in the Philippines.
    It's estimated it had sustained winds of 195 mph, and
    gusts to 235 mph at landfall...the equivalent of an
    intense category 5 hurricane. The storm was so large in
    diameter, that clouds from it were affecting two-thirds
    of the country, which extended over 1150 miles. Over
    10,000 perished in the storm.

    In 1913 The "freshwater fury", a rapidly deepening cyclone,
    caused unpredicted gales on the Great Lakes. Eight large
    ore carriers on Lake Erie sank drowning 270 sailors.
    Cleveland OH reported 17.4 inches of snow in 24 hours,
    and a total of 22.2 inches, both all-time records for
    that location. During the storm, winds at Cleveland
    averaged 50 mph, with gusts to 79 mph. The storm
    produced wind gusts to 80 mph at Buffalo NY, and buried
    Pickens WV under three feet of snow. (9th-11th)
    In 1926 A tornado in Charles County of southern Maryland killed
    17 persons.
    In 1982 Seven tornadoes touched down in southern California,
    three of which began as waterspouts. The waterspouts
    moved ashore at Point Mugu, Malibu, and Long Beach. The
    Long Beach tornado traveled inland ten miles causing much
    damage.
    In 1987 Showers and gusty winds associated with a cold front
    helped extinguish forest fires in the Appalachian Region
    and clear out smoke in the eastern U.S. Thunderstorms
    produced locally heavy rains from eastern Texas to the
    Tennessee Valley. Longview TX received 3.12 inches of
    rain, including two inches in two hours, Tupelo MS was
    soaked with 2.80 inches of rain.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a strong cold front
    produced severe weather from eastern Oklahoma to central
    Indiana. Hail more than two inches in diameter was
    reported around Tulsa OK.
    In 1989 High winds prevailed along the eastern slopes of the
    Rockies from the afternoon of the 8th into the early
    morning hours of the 9th. Winds of 50 to 80 mph
    prevailed across the northwest chinook area of Wyoming,
    with gusts to 100 mph. Winds in Colorado gusted to
    97 mph at Fritz Peak (located near Rollinsville) the
    evening of the 8th, and early in the morning on the 9th,
    gusted to 78 mph west of Fort Collins.
    In 1999 What a difference a year makes!! Sunny skies and highs
    in the 70s for the northern plains...while a blizzard
    was raging just one year earlier over the same area.
    In 2020 Theta is the 29th named storm in the record-breaking
    2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season, breaking the previous
    record of 28th named storms in 2005.

    In 1915 An unusually late season tornado struck the central
    Kansas town of Great Bend killing eleven persons along
    its 35 mile track. The tornado destroyed 160 homes in
    Great Bend and caused a million dollars damage. Hundreds
    of dead ducks dropped from the sky northeast of the
    track's end.
    In 1975 Another "freshwater fury" hit the Great Lakes. A large
    ore carrier on Lake Superior, the Edmund Fitzgerald, sank
    near Crisp Point with the loss of its crew of 29 men.
    Eastern Upper Michigan and coastal Lower Michigan were
    hardest hit by the storm, which produced wind gusts to 71
    at Sault Ste Marie MI, and gusts to 78 mph at Grand
    Rapids MI. Severe land and road erosion occurred along
    the Lake Michigan shoreline. A popular hit song by
    Gordon Lightfoot was inspired by the storm.
    In 1987 A cold front brought snow to the Appalachian Region and
    freezing temperatures to the central U.S. Up to nine
    inches of snow blanketed Garrett County of extreme
    western Maryland. Freezing temperatures were reported as
    far south as El Paso TX and San Angelo TX. Gale force
    winds lashed the Middle Atlantic Coast and the coast of
    southern New England. Thunderstorms brought fire
    quenching rains to Alabama, and produced large hail and
    damaging winds in eastern North Carolina. Ahead of the
    cold front, seven cities in Florida and Georgia reported
    record high temperatures for the date as readings warmed
    into the 80s.
    In 1988 Strong winds circulating around a deep low pressure
    system in southeastern Ontario buffeted the northeastern
    U.S., with the Lower Great Lakes Region hardest hit.
    Winds in western New York State gusted to 68 mph at
    Buffalo, to 69 mph at Niagra Falls, and to 78 mph at
    Brockport. Four persons were injured at Rome NY when a
    tree was blown onto their car.
    In 1989 Strong southwesterly winds prevailed along the eastern
    slopes of the Rockies in Montana and Wyoming. Winds of
    80 to 90 mph prevailed across the northwest chinook zone
    of Montana, with gusts to 112 mph. Unseasonably warm
    weather accompanied the high winds. Shortly after
    midnight the temperature at Kalispell MT reached a record
    59 degrees. Windy and wet weather prevailed across
    Washington State. Strong southerly winds gusted to 70 mph
    at Rattlesnake Ridge, near Hanford. Six rivers in western
    Washington State rose above flood stage between the 9th
    and the 11th of the month, following eight days of moderate
    to heavy rain. Rainfall over the western slopes of the
    Cascade Mountains between the 3rd and the 10th ranged from
    14 to 24 inches. High freezing levels also caused the early
    snowpack to melt, adding to the runoff in the rain swollen
    rivers. Damage was heaviest in Whatcom County, where the
    Nooksack River caused nearly six million dollars damage,
    mostly to roads and bridges.
    In 1999 Snowplows had to be called out in Eden Prarie, MN to clean
    up after a hailstorm.
    In 2002 (9th-11th) A widespread severe weather and tornado outbreak
    affected a large area from Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana
    eastward across the Mississippi River, to the east coast.
    One tornado late on the 9th blew out the windows of a law
    enforcement vehicle in Crittenden County, Arkansas. Coverage
    and intensity both increased dramatically on the 10th, with
    Tornado Watches and Tornado Warnings covering areas from
    Pennsylvania southwest to Louisiana on the 10th. Damage was
    widespread, with many injuries and fatalities across several
    states. An F-4 tornado struck Van Wert, Ohio. Mossy Grove,
    Tennessee, northwest of Knoxville, was all but destroyed.
    Preliminary reports showed at least 56 tornadoes, and 44
    fatalities.

    In 1911 The central U.S. experienced perhaps its most dramatic
    cold wave of record. During the early morning hours
    temperatures across the Central Plains ranged from
    68 degrees at Kansas City to 4 above atNorth Platte NE.
    In Kansas City, the temperature warmed to a record
    76 degrees by late morning before the arctic front moved
    in from the northwest. Skies become overcast, winds
    shifted to the northwest, and the mercury began to plummet.
    By early afternoon it was cold enough to snow, and by
    midnight the temperature had dipped to a record cold
    reading of 11 degrees above zero. Oklahoma City also
    established a record high of 83 degrees and record low of
    17 degrees that same day (11/11/11). In southeastern
    Kansas, the temperature at Independence plunged from 83
    degrees to 33 degrees in just one hour. The arctic cold
    front produced severe thunderstorms and tornadoes in the
    Mississippi Valley, a blizzard in the Ohio Valley, and a
    dust storm in Oklahoma. Of particular note, Zanesville,
    Wisconsin had an F-4 tornado, and blizzard conditions an
    hour later.
    In 1940 An Armistice Day storm raged across the Great Lakes
    Region and the Upper Midwest. A blizzard left 49 dead in
    Minnesota, and gales on Lake Michigan caused ship wrecks
    resulting in another 59 deaths. Up to 17 inches of snow
    fell in Iowa, and at Duluth MN the barometric pressure
    reached 28.66 inches. The blizzard claimed a total of
    154 lives, and in Iowa, killed thousands of cattle.
    Whole towns were isolated by huge snowdrifts.
    In 1955 An early arctic outbreak set many November temperature
    records across Oregon and Washington. The severe cold
    damaged shrubs and fruit trees. Readings plunged to near
    zero in western Washington, and dipped to 19 degrees
    below zero in the eastern part of the state.
    In 1987 A deepening low pressure system brought heavy snow to the
    east central U.S. The Veteran's Day storm produced up to
    17 inches of snow in the Washington D.C. area snarling
    traffic and closing schools and airports. Afternoon
    thunderstorms produced five inches of snow in three
    hours. Gale force winds lashed the Middle and Northern
    Atlantic Coast. Norfolk VA reported their earliest
    measurable snow in 99 years of records.
    In 1988 Low pressure brought snow to parts of the Rocky Mountain
    Region. Totals in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern
    Colorado ranged up to 10 inches at Summitville. Evening
    thunderstorms produced large hail in central Oklahoma and
    north central Texas.
    In 1989 Veteran's Day was an unseasonably warm one across much of
    the nation east of the Rockies. Temperatures warmed into
    the 70s and 80s from the Southern and Central Plains to
    the southern half of the Atlantic coast. Thirty-four
    cities reported record high temperatures for the date,
    including Saint Louis MO with a reading of 85 degrees.
    Calico Rock AR and Gilbert AR reported record highs of 87
    degrees.

    In 1906 The mercury soared to 106 degrees at Craftonville CA,
    a November record for the U.S.
    In 1959 Between Noon on the 11th and Noon on the 12th, a winter
    storm buried Helena MT under 21.5 inches of snow, which
    surpassed their previous 24 hour record by seven inches.
    In 1968 A severe coastal storm produced high winds and record
    early snows from Georgia to Maine. Winds reached 90 mph
    in Massachusetts, and ten inches of snow blanketed
    interior Maine.
    In 1974 A great Alaska storm in the Bering Sea caused the worst
    coastal flooding of memory at Nome AK with a tide of 13.2
    feet. The flooding caused 12 million dollars damage,
    however no lives are lost.
    In 1987 Heavy snow spread across much of New England. Totals in
    Massachusetts ranged up to 14 inches in Plymouth County.
    The seven inch total at the Logan Airport in Boston was
    their highest of record for so early in the season, and
    the 9.7 inch total at Providence RI was a record for
    November. Roads were clogged with traffic and made
    impassable as snowplow operators were caught unprepared
    for the early season snowstorm.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front produced
    severe weather in the Lower Mississippi Valley during the
    afternoon and early evening hours. Thunderstorms
    produced wind gusts to 80 mph at Bovina MS. Morning
    thunderstorms drenched Atlanta TX with more than four
    inches of rain.
    In 1989 Thirty-three cities reported record high temperatures for
    the date as readings soared into the 70s and 80s from the
    Southern and Central Plains to the Southern and Middle
    Atlantic Coast Region. The afternoon high of 80 degrees
    at Scottsbluff NE was a record for November, and highs of
    76 degrees at Rapid City SD and 81 degrees at Chattanooga
    TN were the warmest of record for so late in the season.
    In 1990 Typhoon Mike, the worst of 14 typhoons to strike the
    Philippines in 1990, wrecked over 600,000 homes and
    killed 436.
    In 2003 (12th-13th) Deadly windstorms gusting to over 70 mph swept
    across the Midwestern and Eastern U.S., knocking out power
    to nearly a million customers, and bringing heavy flooding.
    A motorist who drove past a roadblock was swept away by a
    a creek in West Virginia...and in New York, a tree fell
    onto a car, killing the driver. A Virginia teenager was
    seriously injured when a tree fell on her as she waited for
    a school bus. In the Watts, South Gate, and Compton
    neighborhoods of Los Angeles, California, a freak storm
    dropped 5 inches of rain and hail in under 2 hours. Drifts
    of hail were up to 2 feet deep in places, and some vehicle
    doors couldn't even be opened because of it. Near the
    Detroit, Michigan Airport, a live power line fell across
    Interstate 94, creating a monster traffic jam. Waves up to
    16 feet were recorded on Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. In
    Wooster, Ohio, seven people were injured when a tornado
    damaged a Rubbermaid plant. In Loudendale, West Virginia,
    water over 4 feet deep carried off a 3000 gallon kerosene
    tank that was outside a store.

    In 1933 The first dust storm of the great dust bowl era of the
    1930s occurred. The dust storm, which had spread from
    Montana to the Ohio Valley the day before, prevailed from
    Georgia to Maine resulting in a black rain over New York
    and a brown snow in Vermont. Parts of South Dakota,
    Minnesota and Iowa reported zero visibility on the 12th.
    On the 13th, dust reduced the visibility to half a mile
    in Tennessee.
    In 1946 General Electric scientists produced snow in the
    Massachusetts Berkshires in the first modern day cloud
    seeding experiment.
    In 1953 Strong southeasterly winds associated with a Pacific cold
    front reached 70 mph at Sacramento CA to equal their all-
    time record. The previous record had been established in
    a similar weather pattern on December 12th of the
    previous year.
    In 1981 A powerful cyclone brought high winds to Oregon and
    Washington. The cyclone, which formed about 1000 miles
    west of San Francisco, intensified rapidly as it
    approached the Oregon coast with the central pressure
    reaching 28.22 inches (956 millibars). A wind trace from

    Coos Bay in Oregon, showed peak gusts to 97 mph fifty
    feet above ground level. The wind caused widespread
    damage in Washington and Oregon, with 12 deaths reported.
    As much as four feet of snow fell in the Sierra Nevada
    Range of northern California.
    In 1987 A storm moving off the Pacific Ocean produced rain and
    gale force winds along the northern and central Pacific
    coast, and heavy snow in the Cascade Mountains. Cold
    weather prevailed in the southeastern U.S. Five cities
    reported record low temperatures for the date, including
    Asheville NC with a reading of 21 degrees.
    In 1988 Low pressure brought rain and snow and gusty winds to the
    northeastern U.S. A thunderstorm drenched Agawam MA with
    1.25 inches of rain in fifteen minutes. Winds gusted to
    58 mph at Nantucket MA.
    In 1989 Thirty-two cities in the central and eastern U.S.
    reported record high temperatures for the date as
    readings warmed into the 70s as far north as Michigan and
    Pennsylvania. Afternoon highs in the 80s were reported
    from the Southern Plains to the southern Atlantic coast.
    Columbia SC reported a record high of 86 degrees, and the
    high of 71 degrees at Flint MI was their warmest of
    record for so late in the season.

    In 1964 With the help of a fresh three inch cover of snow, the
    temperature at Ely NV dipped to 15 degrees below zero to
    establish an all-time record low for the month of
    November. That record of -15 degrees was later equalled
    on the 19th of November in 1985.
    In 1974 A storm produced 15 inches of snow at the Buffalo NY
    airport, and 30 inches on the south shore of Lake Erie.
    In 1986 An early season cold wave set more than 200 records from
    the northwestern U.S. to the east coast over a seven day
    period. For some places it proved to be the coldest
    weather of the winter season.
    In 1987 The first major snowstorm of the season hit the Southern
    and Central Rockies, producing 12 inches at the Brian
    Head ski resort in Utah overnight. Strong and gusty
    winds associated with the storm reached 52 mph at Ruidoso
    NM. In the eastern U.S...the temperature at Washington
    D.C. soared to 68 degrees, just three days after being
    buried under more than a foot of snow.
    In 1988 A massive storm produced snow and gusty winds in the
    western U.S., with heavy snow in some of the higher
    elevations. Winds gusted to 66 mph at Show Low AZ,
    and Donner Summit, located in the Sierra Nevada Range of
    California, was buried under 23 inches of snow. Heavy
    rain soaked parts of California, with 3.19 inches
    reported at Blue Canyon.
    In 1989 Unseasonably warm weather prevailed east of the Rockies.
    Temperatures reached 70 degrees as far north as New
    England, and readings in the 80s were reported across the
    southeast quarter of the nation. Nineteen cities
    reported record high temperatures for the date. For the
    second time in the month Dallas/Fort Worth TX equalled
    their record for November with an afternoon high of 89
    degrees. The high of 91 degrees at Waco TX was their
    warmest of record for so late in the season. Heavy snow
    blanketed parts of Wyoming overnight, with twelve inches
    reported at Cody, and ten inches at Yellowstone Park.

    In 1958 More than six inches of snow fell at Tucson AZ.
    The most severe November cold wave in U.S. history was in
    progress. A weather observing station located 14 miles
    northeast of Lincoln MT reported a reading of 53 degrees
    below zero, which established an all-time record low
    temperature for the nation for the month of November.
    Their high that day was one degree above zero.
    In 1987 High winds and heavy snow created blizzard conditions
    across parts of eastern Colorado. Wind gusts reached 68
    mph at Pueblo, and snowfall totals ranged up to 37 inches
    at Echo Lake. In Wyoming, the temperature dipped to 14
    degrees below zero at Laramie. Strong thunderstorms in
    Louisiana drenched Alexandria with 16.65 inches of rain

    blanketed much of Minnesota, with eleven inches reproted
    at International Falls.
    In 1989 9 students died when a "weak" tornado wrecked a cafeteria
    wall, making it the deadliest weak tornado in US history.
    Snow and gusty winds invaded the north central U.S. Winds
    gusting to 40 mph produced wind chill readings as cold as
    25 degrees below zero, and blizzard conditions were
    reported in Nebraska during the late morning hours. High
    winds around a powerful low pressure system produced
    squalls in the Great Lakes Region. Winds gusted to 63
    mph at Whitefish Point MI, and snowfall totals in
    Michigan ranged up to 19 inches at Hart, north of
    Muskegon. (15th-16th)
    In 2020 Iota becomes a catastrophic category 5 hurricane with 160 mph
    winds in the Gulf Of Mexico, the latest in the season for such
    an intense storm. It hit nearly the same area blasted by

    and Green Mountains of New England causing extensive
    forest and structural damage.
    In 1927 A tornado cut a seventeen mile path across Alexandria and
    southeastern Washington D.C. injuring 31 persons. The
    tornado struck the Naval Air Station where a wind gust of
    93 mph is recorded. A waterspout was seen over the
    Potomac River ninety minutes later.
    In 1953 The temperature at Minneapolis MN reached 71 degrees,
    their warmest reading of record for so late in the
    autumn.
    In 1987 A storm in the Rockies produced 21 inches of snow at the

    Jersey receiving significant ice accumulations. At one
    time, over 87,000 homes were without power.
    In 2003 Thunderstorms with heavy rain and strong wind swept across
    the Houston, TX area. Parts of Houston received as much as
    10 inches of rain in 24 hours, with several bayous and
    creeks overflowing causing severe flooding. Several units
    at a Houston apartment complex lost their roofs from a
    possible tornado (several tornadoes were observed around
    the area). In nearby Sugarland, TX, 16 people were injured
    in weather related auto accidents...most from the strong
    winds blowing their vehicles off of the road.
    In 2013 A major severe weather outbreak occurred from the Upper
    Midwest through the Middle Mississipi Valley, into the
    Tennessee and Ohio Valley region. Numerous reports of
    severe weather...including tornadoes and damaging winds...
    were noted in many areas...with some of the tornadoes and
    damaging winds termed as "significant". Widespread damage,
    as well as numerous injuries and fatalities occurred across
    several states. An NFL game in Chicago was delayed by the
    severe weather in the area. Storms were moving at nearly 80
    in some cases...and with some of the tornadoes, there were
    "debris balls" noted on radar. Several vehicles were also
    overturned, due to the high winds. Preliminary data had
    over 400 severe weather reports...and around 80 of those
    were tornadoes. One tornado that hit Washington County,
    was rated as an EF-4.
    In 2014 (17th-21st) The Lake Effect Snow Machine was in high gear
    on the eastern shore of Lake Erie. Five to more than seven
    feet of snow (almost a years worth), piled up just south
    and east of Buffalo, New York. Buildings collapsed under
    the weight of the snow. At least 13 people died.

    of the north central U.S. Eleven cities in the Upper
    Midwest reported record low temperatures for the date,
    including Rochester MN with a reading of 4 below zero.
    Strong winds ushering the arctic air into the north
    central U.S. produced squalls in the Lower Great Lakes
    Region. Snowfall totals in northern Ohio ranged up to
    twenty inches in Ashatabula County and Geauga County.
    In 2003 (17th-18th) Strong thunderstorms with heavy rain and hail
    affected much of Arkansas. Storm totals were from 2 to over
    5 inches of rain, with several areas of flooding. An upper

    Ohio Valley produced 14 inches of snow at Snowshoe WV,
    and nearly eight inches at Syracuse NY. Eleven cities in
    the eastern U.S. reported record low temperatures for the
    date. Record lows included 21 at Pinson AL, 9 at
    Syracuse NY, and 8 at Binghmaton NY. Gale force winds
    lashed the Middle and Northern Atlantic Coast, and the
    strong northwesterly winds produced wind chill readings
    as cold as 30 degrees below zero. Winds gusting to 60
    mph at Trumansburg NY toppled a chimney onto a nearby
    truck.
    In 1988 High winds accompanied rain and snow in the northeastern
    U.S. Caribou ME received eight inches of snow in six
    hours, and Fort Kent ME was blanketed with a total of
    fourteen inches of snow.
    In 1989 The storm which produced thunderstorms and high winds in
    the northeastern U.S. the previous day, produced snow and
    high winds in New England, with blizzard conditions
    reported in Maine. Winds gusted to 55 mph at Boston MA,
    and reached 58 mph at Augusta ME. Hurricane force winds
    were reported off the coast of Maine. Snowfall totals
    ranged up to 18 inches at Vanceboro ME, with 17 inches at
    South Lincoln VT. There were thirty-five storm-related
    injuries in Maine.
    In 2000 The Lake Effect Snow Machine was in full force across the
    Great Lakes, with many cities receiving huge snow amounts.
    Buffalo, NY got over 2 feet of snow.

    In 1641 An observer at Boston MA recorded a "great tempest of
    wind and rain from the southeast all night, as fierce as
    a hurricane, and thereupon followed the highest tide
    which we have seen since our arrival here".
    In 1957 Extremely destructive Santa Ana winds blew from Oxnard to
    San Diego and inland parts of southern California. The
    high winds produced a 28,000 acre brush fire on a 40-mile
    front west of Crystal Lake. People were ordered off
    streets in some areas due to flying debris. (21st-22nd)
    In 1987 Eight cities in the eastern U.S. reported record low
    temperatures for the date. Elkins WV, reported a low of
    5 degrees above zero. Gale force winds continued along
    the Northern Atlantic Coast.
    In 1988 Wet and windy weather prevailed across the western U.S.,
    with heavy snow in some of the higher elevations. Winds
    gusted to 62 mph at Vedauwoo WY, and reached 75 mph at
    Tillamook OR. Shelter Cove CA was drenched with 4.37
    inches of rain in 24 hours.
    In 1989 Strong northerly winds produced squalls along the shore
    of Lake Michigan, with heavy snow in extreme southeast
    Wisconsin. Milwaukee WI received nine inches of snow,
    and in Racine County there were more than one hundred
    automobile accidents.
    In 2011 Hurricane Mitch became the strongest late season
    hurricane in the Eastern Pacific basin, as a category
    4 storm with 145 mph winds...although it was no threat
    to land.
    In 2016 Hurricane Otto became the latest hurricane formation on
    in the Caribbean Sea, eclipsing the mark of Martha (1969)
    by about a day. Otto went into central America on
    Thanksgiving Day, just north of San Juan De Nicaragua,
    as the southernmost landfalling hurricane in central
    America on record. He then remerged into the Eastern
    Pacific Ocean as a tropical storm on the 25th, before
    eventually dissipating. (22nd to 26th).

    of rain in 24 hours to establish a state record.
    In 1943 Northern New Hampshire was in the grips of a record
    snowstorm which left a total of 55 inches at Berlin, and
    56 inches at Randolph. The 56 inch total at Randolph
    established a 24 hour snowfall record for the state. In
    Maine, Middle Dam received a record 35 inches of snow in
    24 hours.
    In 1978 A cyclone struck Batticaloa, killing 1500. It was Sri Lanka's

    In 1987 Rain and gale force winds prevailed along the Northern
    Pacific coast. Quillayute WA received 1.57 inches of
    rain in 24 hours, including .90 inch in six hours. Heavy
    snow fell over northern Oregon and the Cascade Mountains
    of Washington State. Temperatures began to moderate in
    the eastern U.S. following a bitterly cold weekend.
    In 1988 Low pressure crossing the Great Basin brought wintry
    weather to parts of the western U.S. Up to a foot of
    snow blanketed Yellowstone Park, and winds gusted to
    70 mph at Casper WY, and reached 95 mph near Reno NV. Up
    to seven inches of rain was reported in the Grass Valley
    and Nevada City area of California. Paradise CA was
    soaked with 5.37 inches of rain in 24 hours.
    In 1989 Low pressure tracking across the Carolinas brought heavy
    rain to parts of the Southern Atlantic Coast Region for
    Thanksgiving Day, and blanketed the Middle Atlantic Coast
    States and southern New England with heavy snow. The
    storm produced up to nine inches of snow over Long Island
    NY, and up to 14 inches over Cape Cod MA, at Yarmouth.
    Totals of 4.7 inches at New York City and 6.0 inches at
    Newark NJ were records for Thanksgiving Day, the 8.0 inch
    total at Providence RI was a record for any given day in
    November, and the 6.5 inch total at Strasburg CT was a
    record for the month of November as a whole.
    In 2000 (23rd-24th) Much of the southern plains was inundated
    by flooding rains, and some areas got severe weather.
    Several parts of Arkansas got over 4 inches of rain.
    In 2001 For the second year in a row, Arkansas and adjacent states
    were hit by severe weather on the same days. Several tornadic
    thunderstorms along with an intense squall line traversed the
    state, resulting in heavy damage, along with some injuries and
    fatalities; although rainfall wasn't as impressive as
    the year before. (23rd-24th).

    unroofed buildings at Philadelphia and New York City.
    In 1863 The "battle above the clouds" was fought on Lookout
    Mountain near Chattanooga. Pre-frontal clouds obscured
    the upper battlefield aiding a Union victory.
    In 1923 Yale beat Harvard during a rain-soaked football game in
    Cambridge, Massachusetts.
    In 1950 The temperature at Chicago IL dipped to 2 below zero
    to equal their record for the month established on the
    29th in 1872. On the first of the month that year
    Chicago established a record high for November with a
    reading of 81 degrees.
    In 1982 Hurricane Iwa lashed the Hawaiian Islands of Niihau,
    Kauai, and Oahu with high winds and surf. Winds gusting
    to 120 mph caused extensive shoreline damage. Damage
    totalled 150 million dollars on Kauai, and fifty million
    dollars on Oahu. The peak storm surge on the south shore
    was six to eight feet. It marked the first time in 25
    years that Hawaii had been affected by a hurricane.
    In 1987 Showers and thunderstorms produced heavy rain in southern
    Missouri, southeast Kansas and northeastern Oklahoma.
    Flooding was reported in Greene County of southwestern
    Missouri. Springfield MO was drenched with more than six
    inches of rain. Thunderstorms over southern Texas
    produced more than eight inches of rain in Caldwell
    County and Hayes County, and thunderstorms over south
    central Oklahoma produced one inch hail at Temple twice
    within an hour.
    In 1988 Low pressure brought heavy snow and high winds to the
    Northern and Central Rockies. Snowfall totals in
    Colorado ranged up to 40 inches at Wolf Creek Pass, with
    27 inches falling in 24 hours. Telluride CO received 32
    inches of snow, and winds atop Mines Peak gusted to 95 mph.
    In 1989 "Mother Nature" completed a one-two punch in the
    northeastern U.S., as record cold temperatures followed
    in the wake of record snows. A dozen cities reported
    record low temperatures for the date. Morning lows of
    one above zero at Hartford CT, 3 at Portland ME, and 6 at
    Providence RI, were records for November. Houlton ME was
    the cold spot in the nation with a morning low of 14
    degrees below zero.
    In 2014 Temperatures warmed into the 60s, and much of the heavy
    snow that fell on the 17th-21st, melted quickly, causing
    severe flooding.

    In 1926 A Thanksgiving Day tornado outbreak across Arkansas spawned
    27 tornadoes and 51 fatalities.
    In 1950 A great storm hit the Northern and Central Appalachians
    with snow and high winds. Winds reached hurricane force
    along eastern slopes of the Appalachians, with gusts of
    100 mph at Hartford CT, 110 mph at Concord NH, and 160
    mph at Mount Washington NH. Heavy rains also hit the
    eastern slopes with eight inches at Slide Mountain NY.
    The western slopes were buried under heavy snow. The
    storm produced record snowfall totals of 27.7 inches at
    Pittsburgh PA and 36.3 inches at Steubenville OH. The
    snow, and record cold temperatures, resulted in 160
    deaths. (25th-26th)
    Snow was so heavy during the Ohio State/Michigan game
    that brooms were used to find yard markers & 45 punts
    were kicked.
    In 1970 The temperature at Tallahassee FL dipped to 13 degrees,
    following a high of 40 degrees the previous day. The
    mercury then reached 67 degrees on the 26th, and highs
    were in the 70s the rest of the month.
    In 1983 The "Great Thanksgiving Weekend Blizzard" hit Denver CO.
    The storm produced 21.5 inches of snow in 37 hours,
    closing Stapleton Airport for 24 hours. The snow and
    wind closed interstate highways around Denver.
    Visibility at Limon CO was down to zero for 24 hours.
    In 1987 An early morning thunderstorm in southeastern Texas
    produced high winds which rolled a mobile home east of
    Bay City killing two of the four occupants. Thunder-
    storms produced locally heavy rains in central and
    eastern Texas, with nine inches reported at Huntsville
    and 8.5 inches at Wimberly. Snow fell across northern

    nine inches at Cadillac.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms produced severe weather in Arkansas,
    eastern Oklahoma and northwest Texas during the day
    and into the night. Thunderstorms in Texas produced
    softball size hail at Alba, and wind gusts to 80 mph at
    Krum. Hail and high winds caused nearly five million
    dollars damage at Kaufman TX, and strong downburst winds
    derailed twenty-eight freight cars at Fruitvale TX.
    In 1989 A strong Pacific storm dumped one to three feet of
    snow on higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada Range of
    California and Nevada. Snowfall totals in California
    ranged up to 38 inches at Donner Summit, with 30 inches
    at the Sierra Ski Ranch. The storm also produced heavy
    snow in Oregon, with 23 inches reported at Santiam Pass.
    Another storm crossing the Central Rockies produced 12 to
    18 inches of snow in the northern and central mountains
    of Colorado.
    In 2015 Hurricane Sandy became the 9th major hurricane of the 2015
    season in the Eastern Pacific Basin, a record for that
    basin...and the strongest tropical cyclone in that basin
    for so late in the season.

    Nantucket and over Cape Cod, then crossed Nova Scotia.
    In 1896 Snow and high winds hit the Northern Plains and Upper
    Mississippi Valley, with a Thanksgiving Day blizzard
    across North Dakota. The storm was followed by a severe
    cold wave in the Upper Midwest. The temperature at
    Pokegama Dam MI plunged to 45 degrees below zero.
    In 1983 The "Great Thanksgiving Weekend Blizzard" in CO was so
    great, visibility at Limon was down to zero for 24 hours.

    In 1883 Fire engines were called out in New York City and New
    Haven CT as a result of the afterglow of the sunset due
    to vivid red ash from the Krakatoa Volcano explosion in
    August.
    In 1898 The "Portland" storm raged across New England
    producing gale force winds along the coast and heavy snow
    inland. A foot of snow blanketed Boston MA, and
    27 inches fell at New London CT. Winds at Boston gusted
    to 72 mph, and wind gusts to 98 mph were estimated at

    in Kansas ranging up to six inches at Burr Oak. Much of
    the area from central Oklahoma to southwestern Minnesota
    experienced its first snow of the winter season.
    In 1988 Snow and high winds created blizzard conditions in
    Minnesota. Winds gusted to 63 mph at Windom, and
    snowfall totals ranged up to 14 inches at Aitkin.
    Snow drifts seven feet high closed many roads. Fargo ND
    reported a wind chill reading of 34 degrees below zero.
    In 1989 A storm system crossing the north central U.S. spread
    snow across the Dakotas and Minnesota. Heavy snow fell
    in western South Dakota, with 18 inches reported at
    Galena. Strong winds associated with the storm gusted to
    50 mph in the Great Lakes Region and the Great Plains
    Region, with blowing dust reported in Kansas.
    Thunderstorms associated with the same storm system

    In 1921 New England was in the midst of a four day icestorm,
    their worst of record. Ice was more than three inches
    thick in many places following the storm, and property
    damage was in the millions. Northern New England
    received heavy snow with more than two feet in some
    areas. Overnight freezing rains continued through the
    day at Worcester MA while the wind increased to a gale.
    Streets become impassable even on foot, and whole towns
    were plunged into darkness without communication. The
    storm caused 20 million dollars damage to power lines,
    telephone lines and trees.
    In 1960 A severe storm produced waves 20 to 40 feet high on Lake
    Superior. Duluth MN was buried under a foot of snow, and
    clocked wind gusts to 73 mph. The northern shore of Lake
    Superior was flooded and property along the shore was
    battered. Thousands of cords of pulpwood were washed
    into Lake Superior, and up to three feet of water flooded
    the main street of Grand Marais. Thunder accompanied the
    "nor'easter".
    In 1987 Low pressure in the Middle Mississippi Valley produced a
    mixture of snow and sleet and freezing rain from the
    Central Plains to the Upper Mississippi Valley. Snow-
    fall totals in Iowa ranged up to ten inches at Red Oak.
    Totals in Nebraska ranged up to 11 inches at Shickley.
    Freezing rain made roads treacherous in the Twin Cities
    area of southeastern Minnesota. Bitter cold arctic air
    invaded the Northern High Plains Region. Laramie WY was
    the cold spot in the nation with a morning low of 18
    degrees below zero.
    In 1988 Thunderstorms spawned five tornadoes in North Carolina
    during the early morning hours. A powerful tornado
    ripped through one of the most densely populated areas of
    Raleigh destroying hundreds of homes and damaging
    thousands more. The tornado killed four persons along
    its 83 mile track, and injured 154 others. Total damage
    was estimated at more than 77 million dollars.
    In 1989 Strong Santa Ana winds prevailed across southern
    California. Winds gusted to 70 mph at the Rialto
    Airport, and several tractor-trailer trucks were
    overturned east of Los Angeles. High winds also buffeted
    the northeastern U.S., ushering arctic air into the
    region. Winds gusted to 60 mph at Montpelier VT, and
    reached 66 mph at Saint Albans VT.
    In 2012 A large tornado hit Taranto, Italy.

    In 1896 The mercury plunged to 51 degrees below zero at Havre MT.
    It marked the culmination of a two week long cold wave
    caused by a stagnant high pressure area similar to those
    over Siberia during the winter. During the month of
    November temperatures across Montana and the Dakotas
    averaged 15 to 25 degrees below normal.
    In 1969 Dense fog along the Jersey Turnpike resulted in a chain
    reaction of vehicle collisions during the morning rush
    hour. A propane truck jacknifed and was struck by a
    trailor truck, and other vehicles piled into the fiery
    mass.
    In 1975 Red River NM was buried under 34 inches of snow in
    24 hours, which established a state record.
    In 1985 The temperature at Bismarck ND plunged to 30 degrees
    below zero to establish their record low for the month of
    November. The high that day was 4 degrees below zero.
    In 1987 Snow blanketed the Upper Mississippi Valley, with heavy
    snow reported near Lake Superior. Up to ten inches of
    snow was reported in Douglas County and Bayfield County
    of Wisconsin. Brule WI received nine inches of snow.
    Heavy rain soaked the Middle Atlantic Coast States, while
    gale force winds lashed the coastline. Flooding was
    reported in Maryland and Virginia.
    In 1988 Nine inches of snow at Alta UT brought their total for
    the month to 164 inches, surpassing their previous
    November record of 144 inches. Snowbird UT, also in the
    Little Cottonwood Valley, surpassed their November record
    of 118 inches of snow.
    In 1989 Strong Santa Ana wind diminished over southern
    California, but record cold was reported in some of
    the California valleys, with readings of 27 degrees
