Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
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 Tragedy". (The Weather Channel)
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. (The Weather Channel)
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) (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
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. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
Twenty-two cities in the northeastern U.S. reported record low temperatures
for the date. The low of 19 degrees at Cleveland OH was a record for
October, and morning lows of 21 degrees 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. (The
National Weather Summary)
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. (The
National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
