//////////////////////////// AUGUST 4TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS ...1644... The Reverend John Campanius Holm, a Lutheran Minister, took the first known systematic weather observation without the aid of instruments in Wilmington, Delaware. Mr. Holm is considered by some to be the first weatherman in America. Each year the National Weather Service awards 25 John Campanius Holm awards across the United States to volunteer cooperative observers whom have exemplified dedication to creating an accurate daily climate record. ...1882... A vivid aurora was visible from Oregon to Maine, down the east coast as far as Mayport FL, and inland as far as Wellington KS. Observers at Louisville KY noted "merry dancers" across the sky, and observers at Saint Vincent MN noted it was probably the most brilliant ever seen at that location. (The Weather Channel) ...1930... The temperature at Moorefield WV soared to 112 degrees to establish a state record, having reached 110 degrees the previous day. Widespread drought after April of that year caused some towns to haul water for domestic use, and many manufacturing plants were barely operational. (The Weather Channel) ...1961... Spokane WA reached an all-time record high of 108 degrees. Kalispell MT set an all-time record with a reading of 105 degrees. (The Weather Channel) ...1980... A record forty-two consecutive days of 100 degree heat finally came to an end at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. July 1980 proved to be the hottest month of record with a mean temperature of 92 degrees. There was just one day of rain in July, and there was no measurable rain in August. There were 18 more days of 100 degree heat in August, and four in September. Hot weather that summer contributed to the deaths of 1200 people nationally, and losses from the heat across the country were estimated at twenty billion dollars. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel) ...1987... A cold front brought relief from the heat to a large part of the Midwest, while hot weather continued in the south central and eastern U.S. Morning thunderstorms in Nebraska deluged the town of Dalton with 8.71 inches of rain, along with hail three inches in diameter, which accumulated up to four feet deep near the town of Dix. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary) ...2009... Flood Emergency for Clarksville, Jeffersonville, New Albany, and Louisville. Cars were reported stranded and floating in downtown New Albany. Water 1 to 3 feet deep has been reported in some areas across the area including downtown Louisville. This is a dangerous and life threatening situation.

The last day of a major heat wave across Kentucky and central U.S. By 2 PM, the Kentucky Mesonet reported all (50) sites with a heat index of 100 degrees or greater and the UK Ag. Weather Center indicated all locations reported livestock heat stress in the Emergency category. (Tom Priddy, UKAWC)
