Weather History...

An early season snow and ice storm struck the southeastern U.S. It produced
11 inches of snow at Charlotte NC, and six inches at Atlanta GA. (David
A late season hurricane caused extensive damage across the Florida
peninsula, then moved off the Georgia coast crossing Cape Hatteras as a
tropical storm. The storm produced whole gales along the Middle Atlantic
and Southern New England coast. Winds gusted to 60 mph at Block Island RI,
and reached 64 mph at Atlantic City NJ. (David Ludlum)
A late season tornado killed four persons in Madison County and Bond
County, east of St Louis MO. Three tornadoes touched down in Illinois that
afternoon, compared to just half a dozen tornadoes in the month of December
in 115 years of records up until that time. Thunderstorms also produced
hail which caused more than four million dollars damage in the St Louis
area, it was the most damaging hailstorm of record for Missouri. (David
Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
A tornado, 400 yards in width, touched down about one mile below the summit
of Timpanogos Divide. Trees up to 18 inches in diameter were snapped, and
some of the 38 inch snow cover was carried 1000 feet above the ground as
the tornado traveled one mile. (The Weather Channel)
A tornado destroyed a home four miles south of Eastwood MO. The owners were
not injured in that tornado, but ironically one was killed Christmas Eve
when another tornado hit the replacement mobile home on the same site. (The
Weather Channel)
A powerful storm over the Gulf of Alaska continued to produced high winds
and heavy rain along the northern and central Pacific coast. Winds gusted
to 80 mph south of Port Orford OR, Stevens Pass WA was blanketed with
sixteen inches of snow, and Blue Canyon CA was soaked with 1.63 inches of
rain. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary)
Squalls in the Great Lakes Region produced ten inches of snow at Union City
PA. Gale force winds gusted to 55 mph at Buffalo NY. (The National Weather
Summary) (Storm Data)
