Weather History...



NOVEMBER 21ST
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1798...
A four day storm was in progress in the northeastern U.S. The storm dropped
a foot of snow on New York City and New Haven, and as much as three feet in
Maine and New Hampshire. The snow-storm ushered in a long and severe
winter, in some places the ground remained covered with snow until the
following May. (David Ludlum)
...1967...
Excessive rains in southern California caused the most severe flooding and
the most damaging mudslides in 33 years. Downtown Los Angeles received
eight inches of rain, and 14 inches fell in the mountains. (David Ludlum)
...1985...
Hurricane Kate made landfall during the evening hours near Mexico Beach FL.
Wind gusts to 100 mph were reported at Cape San Blas FL. It was the latest
known hurricane to hit the U.S. so far north. (The Weather Channel)
...1987...
Squalls in the Lower Great Lakes Region and the Upper Ohio Valley produced
14 inches of snow at Snowshoe WV, and nearly eight inches at Syracuse NY.
Eleven cities in the eastern U.S. reported record low temperatures for the
date. Record lows included 21 degrees at Pinson AL, 9 degrees at Syracuse
NY, and 8 degrees at Binghamton NY. Gale force winds lash the Middle and
Northern Atlantic Coast, and the strong northwesterly winds produced wind
chill readings as cold as 30 degrees below zero. Winds gusting to 60 mph at
Trumansburg NY toppled a chimney onto a nearby truck. (The National Weather
Summary) (Storm Data)
