Weather History...



FEBRUARY 8TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1835...
A severe cold wave gripped the southeastern U.S. The mercury dipped to 8
above at Jacksonville FL, and to zero at Savannah GA. Orange trees were
killed to the roots. (David Ludlum)
...1936...
The temperature at Denver CO plunged to a record 30 degrees below zero.
(David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...1987...
A powerful storm produced blizzard conditions in the Great Lakes Region.
Winds gusted to 86 mph at Janesville WI and Cleveland OH received 12 inches
of snow. North winds of 50 to 70 mph raised the water level of southern
Lake Michigan two feet, and produced waves 12 to 18 feet high, causing
seven million dollars damage along the Chicago area shoreline. It was the
most damage caused by shoreline flooding and erosion in the history of the
city of Chicago. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
