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

In 1989... a dangerous Arctic airmass invaded the northern
plains. In Minnesota... Warroad and International Falls
plunged to 34 degrees below zero while Minot... ND
reported a wind chill of 81 below! Squalls pummeled the
Great Lakes with heavy snow. Erie Pennsylvania received
21 inches... of which 4 inches accumulated in 1 hour.
This brought their snow depth to 39 inches... which set an
all-time record for the city.

&&

In 1836... an Arctic front of epic proportions surged
across central Illinois around noon. North winds around
70 mph... caused temperatures to free fall from around 40
degrees to zero within 8 hours. Many settlers froze to
death and ice in streams froze to 6 inches thick in a few
hours.Folklore told of chickens frozen in their tracks
and men frozen to saddles. In the latter case... the
moral of the story is obvious.Don't 'horse around' with
Arctic fronts!
