Weather History...



NOVEMBER 18TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1873...
A severe storm raged from Georgia to Nova Scotia causing great losses to
fishing fleets along the coast. In Maine, the barometric pressure reached
28.49 inches at Portland. (David Ludlum)
...1955...
An early season cold snap finally came to an end. Helena MT experienced 138
consecutive hours of subzero temperatures, including a reading of 29 below
zero, which surpassed by seven degrees their previous record for the month
of November. Missoula MT broke their November record by 12 degrees with a
reading of 23 below zero, and Salt Lake City UT smashed their previous
November record of zero with a reading of 14 below. Heavy snow in the Great
Basin closed Donner Pass CA, and total crop damage from the cold wave
amounted to eleven million dollars. (David Ludlum)
...1957...
A tornado, 100 yards in width, travelled a nearly "straight as an arrow"
27-mile path from near Rosa AL to near Albertville AL, killing three
persons. A home in the Susan Moore community in Blount County was picked up
and dropped 500 feet away killing one person. (The Weather Channel)
...1986...
The first of two successive snowstorms struck the northeastern U.S. The
storm produced up to 20 inches of snow in southern New Hampshire. Two days
later a second storm produced up to 30 inches of snow in northern Maine.
