HISTORICAL WEATHER AND CLIMATE FACTS FOR TODAY

SEPTEMBER 17TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1932...
Concord NH was drenched with 5.97 inches of rain in 24 hours to establish a
record for that location (16th- 17th). (The Weather Channel)
...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.
(The Weather Channel)
...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 easily surpassed previous
snowfall record totals for so early in the season. (15th-17th) (The Weather
Channel)
...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. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...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 of those
tornadoes in central and south central Texas. (Storm Data) (The National
Weather Summary)
...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. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary)
