HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1899...
Louisville's coolest February high temperature: 2 degrees. Also Lexington's 
coldest daily high temperature on record: -3 degrees. Also, the only 
sub-zero daily high temperature on record at Bowling Green: -1.
 (NWS Louisville)
...1870...
President Ulysses Grant signed a joint resolution with Congress authorizing the 
Secretary of War to form a National Weather Service. This agency was placed 
under the Secretary of War because it was thought that military discipline would 
ensure that observations would be timely and accurate. The new agency was placed 
under General Albert Meyer. General Meyer gave the National Weather Service its 
first moniker...the Division Of Telegrams And Reports for the Benefit of Commerce.

...1933...
The temperature at Moran WY, located next to Teton National Park, plunged
to 63 degrees below zero to establish a state record. The temperature at
the Riverside Ranger Station in Montana dipped to 66 below zero to
establish a record for the state, and a record for the nation which stood
until 1954. (David Ludlum)
...1934...
The mercury dipped to 51 degrees below zero at Vanderbilt to establish a
record for the state of Michigan. The temperature at Stillwater plunged to
52 degrees below zero to establish a record for the state of New York.
(David Ludlum)
...1987...
A storm off the Atlantic coast produced high winds and heavy snow in the
northeastern U.S., with blizzard conditions in eastern Massachusetts. Wind
gusted to 80 mph and 23.4 inches of snow produced drifts eight feet high at
Cape Cod MA. It was the worst blizzard in thirty years for the Cape Cod
area. Winds in some of the mountains and ridges of the Appalachian Region
gusted to 100 mph. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1994...
The Ice Storm of 1994 was devastating and paralyzing. Tennessee, Northern 
Mississippi, and a seven county area in northwest Alabama received up to 6 
inches of ice. The weight of the ice caused numerous trees to fall, blocking 
roads and making travel impossible. 9 fatalities and $3 billion in damage are 
attributed to the storm.
...2001...
Eastern Kentucky was in the midst of a warm and record setting period. The 
Jackson Weather Office established record high temperatures of 72 degrees on 
both the 8th and 9th...while the London Corbin Airport set records of 69 degrees 
and 70 degrees for the 8th and 9th respectively.  (NWS Jackson)
...2011...
For the past 30 years, winters in Kentucky were relatively mild with very little snow
for most winters. But not for 2010 or 2011. According to Tom Priddy, UK Ag Meteorologist,
every time he sneezed It snowed in the Bluegrass State. ;>)
