Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
SEPTEMBER 24TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...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. In Washington State, Spokane County 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. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...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) (The Weather Channel)
...1972...
Lightning struck a man near Waldport OR, a young man who it so happens was
carrying thirty-five pieces of dynamite. (The Weather Channel)
...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. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...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. (National Weather
Summary) (Storm Data)
...1989...
Forty-seven cities between the Rockies and the Appalachians reported record
low temperatures for the date. Lows of 38 degrees at Abilene TX, 34 degrees
at Jackson KY, and 36 degrees 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. (The National Weather
Summary) (Storm Data)
