HISTORICAL WEATHER AND CLIMATE FACTS FOR TODAY

MARCH 6TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1872...
A cold wave hit the East coast sending the mercury plunging to 8 degrees below 
zero at Boston. It was the most severe March cold wave in modern history. 
(David Ludlum)
...1900...
A chinook wind blowing down the slopes of the Rockies through Havre MT raised 
the temperature 31 degrees in just three minutes. (The Weather Channel)
...1954...
Florida received its greatest modern-day snowfall of record, with 4.0 inches at 
the Milton Experimental Station. Pensacola FL equalled their 24-hour record 
with 2.1 inches of snow. (The Weather Channel)
...1960...
The coldest temperature ever recorded in Kentucky in March: -14 degrees at 
Bonnieville in Hart County. Also...Louisville's coldest March temperature and 
latest sub-zero temperature: one degree below zero. Lexington's latest sub-zero 
temperature (-2) as well.
...1962...
The Great Atlantic Coastal Storm of 1962 destroyed over $200 million worth of 
property from Florida to New England.  The storm caused major shoreline erosion 
from North Carolina to Long Island.  A 3 mile long boardwalk in Ocean City, 
Maryland was wiped out.  The storm caused greater alteration of the coastline 
from Cape Hatteras northward than any previous storm, including hurricanes.  A 
new inlet was cut through Hatteras Island and more than 10 miles of outer banks 
barrier dunes were obliterated.  Winds of up to 75 mph raised waves to heights 
of 40 feet.  42 inches of snow fell at Big Meadows, located in the 
mountains of Virginia -- a state record.
...1984...
Heavy rains soaked Florida for 24 hours with rainfall totals reaching as high as 
9 inches at Whigham and 9.55 inches at Marianna.
...1987... 
At 3:30 PM CST, the temperature at Saint Cloud, Minnesota reached a summer-like 
71 degrees, setting a new record temperature for the date.  The previous record 
of 50 degrees, set in 1983, was exceeded by 21 degrees!
...1989... 
A winter storm in the south central U.S. left parts of Missouri and Arkansas 
buried under more than a foot of snow.  Totals in Missouri ranged up to 16 
inches at Lebanon with 14 inches reported at Springfield.  Sections of Benton 
county in Arkansas recorded 14 inches.
...1990...  
At the University of Denver High Altitude Lab, Mount Evans reported 50 inches of 
snow in a 24 hour period.  Winds gusting up to 40 mph caused whiteout conditions.
...1992... 
Severe thunderstorms dumped large amounts of hail over sections of Georgia and 
Florida.  Hail accumulated to a depth of 6 inches at Marietta, Georgia.  Hail 
the size of golfballs covered the ground 3 to 4 inches deep uniformly at 
Longwood and Altamonte Springs, Florida.  Hail damage was extensive with broken 
windows and vehicle and roof damage widespread.  Total damage in Florida 
amounted to 25 million dollars, the most damaging hailstorm in Florida's history 
(until 25Mar92).
...1996...
An early morning strong (F3) tornado killed 4 people and injured 40 on a 19 mile 
track through Dallas County in Alabama.  Damages totaled $8 million. (WSI)
