HISTORICAL WEATHER AND CLIMATE FACTS FOR TODAY

////////////////////////////
AUGUST 4TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1644...
The Reverend John Campanius Holm, a Lutheran Minister, took the first known 
systematic weather observation without the aid of instruments in Wilmington, 
Delaware. Mr. Holm is considered by some to be the first weatherman in America. 
Each year the National Weather Service awards 25 John Campanius Holm awards 
across the United States to volunteer cooperative observers whom have 
exemplified dedication to creating an accurate daily climate record.
...1882...
A vivid aurora was visible from Oregon to Maine, down the east coast as far
as Mayport FL, and inland as far as Wellington KS. Observers at Louisville
KY noted "merry dancers" across the sky, and observers at Saint Vincent MN
noted it was probably the most brilliant ever seen at that location. (The
Weather Channel)
...1930...
The temperature at Moorefield WV soared to 112 degrees to establish a state
record, having reached 110 degrees the previous day. Widespread drought
after April of that year caused some towns to haul water for domestic use,
and many manufacturing plants were barely operational. (The Weather
Channel)
...1961...
Spokane WA reached an all-time record high of 108 degrees. Kalispell MT set
an all-time record with a reading of 105 degrees. (The Weather Channel)
...1980...
A record forty-two consecutive days of 100 degree heat finally came to an
end at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. July 1980 proved to be the hottest
month of record with a mean temperature of 92 degrees. There was just one
day of rain in July, and there was no measurable rain in August. There were
18 more days of 100 degree heat in August, and four in September. Hot
weather that summer contributed to the deaths of 1200 people nationally,
and losses from the heat across the country were estimated at twenty
billion dollars. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...1987...
A cold front brought relief from the heat to a large part of the Midwest,
while hot weather continued in the south central and eastern U.S. Morning
thunderstorms in Nebraska deluged the town of Dalton with 8.71 inches of
rain, along with hail three inches in diameter, which accumulated up to
four feet deep near the town of Dix. (Storm Data) (The National Weather
Summary)
...2009...
Flood Emergency for Clarksville, Jeffersonville, New Albany, and Louisville.
Cars were reported stranded and floating in downtown New
Albany. Water 1 to 3 feet deep has been reported in some areas
across the area including downtown Louisville. This is a dangerous
and life threatening situation. [MORE}

...2010...
The last day of a major heat wave across Kentucky and central U.S. By 2 PM,
the Kentucky Mesonet reported all (50) sites with a heat index of 100 degrees or greater
and the UK Ag. Weather Center indicated all locations reported livestock heat stress
in the Emergency category. (Tom Priddy, UKAWC)
