... On this date in weather history...

In 2016, a historic 3-day blizzard finally ended for the
Ohio Valley, the mid-Atlantic states and the northeast.
It overwhelmed many areas with record snowfall. Parts of
Four States were buried by 3 to 3.5 foot accumulations.
The greatest was in extreme eastern West Virginia, where
Glengary was overwhelmed by a phenomenal 3.5 feet. The
others were extreme northern Virginia with 39 inches,
western Maryland with 38 inches, and extreme
south-central Pennsylvania where 38.3 inches buried
Greencastle. Among the cities setting snowfall records
were New York j f k Airport, 30.5 inches; Harrisburg
Pennsylvania 30.2 inches; and Baltimore-Washington
Airport, 29.2 inches. Several areas on the coast were
whipped by winds sustained from 50 to 60 mph with 70 to
85 mph gusts. Damage was estimated at $2.5 billion and
41 people died. In 1988, a blizzard rapidly developed in
the north central United States. In just one hour,
eastern North Dakota switched from sunny skies, light
winds and temperatures in the 20s, to free falling
temperatures and near zero visibility in snow and blowing
snow. Winds gusting to 72 mph in Gillette Wyoming
produced sensational drifts 16 feet high. Northwest Iowa
experienced its second blizzard in just 24 hours. High
winds in Iowa sent wind chills tumbling to 65 below zero.


In 1963, a great Arctic outbreak invaded the deep south.
Nashville Tennessee set what, at the time, was an
all-time record low of 15 below zero. The record was
eclipsed on January 20th, 1985 by a low of 16 below that
was broken just one day later by a low of 17 below on the
21st. On the 23rd and 24th, most of Kansas chilled out
with lows ranging from 5 to 12 below. In 1916, the
temperature in Browning Montana fell a mind-boggling 100
degrees in just 24 hours, from 44 degrees to 56 degrees
below zero. It established a record 24 hour temperature
drop for the United States.
