Perhaps the greatest of all arctic outbreaks commenced on this date. The
temperature plunged to 61 degrees below zero in Montana. At the same time a
"Great Eastern Blizzard" left a blanket of snow from Georgia to New
Hampshire. The state of Virginia took the brunt of the storm, with snowfall
totals averaging 30 to 40 inches. (David Ludlum)
...1983...
The Middle Atlantic Coast States and southern New England were in the midst
of a major snowstorm. In Pennsylvania, the storm produced 21 inches at
Philadelphia, 24 inches at Harrisburg, and 25 inches at Allentown,
establishing record 24 hour totals and single storm totals for those
locations. New York City received 22 inches of snow, and 35 inches was
reported at Glen Gary, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of West
Virginia. Windsor Locks CT received a record 19 inches of snow in 12 hours.
The storm resulted in forty-six deaths, thirty-three of which occurred when
a freighter capsized and sank off the Maryland/Virginia coast. Heavy snow
was reported from northeastern Georgia to eastern Maine. (10th-12th) (Storm
