Weather History...



JANUARY 22ND
HISTORICAL WEATHER FACTS
...1943...
Chinook winds during the early morning hours caused the temperature at
Spearfish SD to rise from 4 below zero to 45 above in just two minutes, the
most dramatic temperature rise in world weather records. An hour and a half
later the mercury plunged from 54 above to 4 below zero in twenty-seven
minutes. (David Ludlum)
...1987...
A winter storm spread snow from central Mississippi through northern
Georgia to New England. Up to 15 inches of snow fell across the heavily
populated areas of Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. Traffic tie-ups nearly
paralyzed the Washington D.C. area. Winds gusted to 76 mph at Chatham MA,
and in Pennsylvania, snowfall totals ranged up to 21 inches at Dushore.
Williamsport PA received five inches of snow in just one hour. (National
Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1988...
The nation was free of winter storms for a day, however, winds in southern
California gusted to 80 mph in the Grapevine area of the Tehachapi
Mountains, and winds along the eastern slopes of the Rockies reached 100
mph in the Upper Yellowstone Valley of Montana. (National Weather Summary)
(Storm Data)
...1989...
Low pressure brought heavy rain and gale force winds to Florida. Daytona
Beach was drenched with 5.48 inches of rain in 24 hours to establish a
January record for that location, and winds at Titusville FL gusted to 63
mph. (National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1990...
It was a very tame and peaceful mid winter day. Mild weather prevailed
across the nation, with rain and snow primarily confined to the
northeastern U.S. and the Pacific Northwest. Warm weather continued in
Florida. Highs of 83 degrees at Hollywood and 85 degrees at Miami were
records for the date. (National Weather Summary)
