Weather History...

A great hurricane produced a tide along the South Carolina coast which
nearly inundated downtown Charleston. However, just before the tide reached
the city, a shift in the wind caused the water level to drop five feet in
ten minutes. (David Ludlum)
Rains of .27 inch on the 14th and .73 inch on the 15th were the earliest
and heaviest of record for Fresno CA, which, along with much of California,
experiences a "rainy season" in the winter. (The Weather Channel)
The temperature at Detroit MI soared to 100 degrees to establish a record
for September. (The Weather Channel)
A snowstorm over Wyoming produced 16.9 inches at Lander to esablish a 24
hour record for September for that location. (13th-15th) (The Weather
The first snow of the season was observed at the Winter Park ski resort in
Colorado early in the day. Eight inches of snow was reported at the Summit
of Mount Evans, along with wind gusts to 61 mph. Early morning
thunderstorms in Texas produced up to six inches of rain in Real County.
Two occupants of a car drowned, and the other six occupants were injured as
it was swept into Camp Wood Creek, near the town of Leakey. Late afternoon
and evening thunderstorms produced severe weather in central and
northeastern Oklahoma. Wind gusts to 70 mph and golf ball size hail were
reported around Oklahoma City OK. (National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
Thunderstorms brought much needed rains to parts of the central U.S.
Rainfall totals of 2.87 inches at Sioux City IA and 4.59 inches at Kansas
City MO were records for the date. Up to eight inches of rain deluged the
Kansas City area, nearly as much rain as was received the previous eight
months. Hurricane Gilbert, meanwhile, slowly churned toward the
U.S./Mexican border. (The National Weather Summary)
Showers and thunderstorms produced locally heavy rain in the Central
Appalachians. Virgie VA received 2.60 inches of rain during the evening
hours, and Bartlett TN was deluged with 2.75 inches in just ninety minutes.
Heavy rain left five cars partially submerged in high water in a parking
lot at Bulls Gap TN. Thunderstorms over central North Carolina drenched the
Fayetteville area with four to eight inches of rain between 8 PM and
midnight. Flash flooding, and a couple of dam breaks, claimed the lives of
two persons, and caused ten million dollars damage. Hugo, churning over the
waters of the Carribean, strengthened to the category of a very dangerous
hurricane, packing winds of 150 mph. (Storm Data) (The National Weather
