Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

------------
MARCH 5TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1960...
Eastern Massachusetts' greatest March snowstorm of record began to abate.
The storm produced record 24 hour snowfall totals of 27.2 inches at Blue
Hill Observatory, 17.7 inches at Worcester, and 16.6 inches at Boston.
Winds gusted to 70 mph. (3rd-5th) (The Weather Channel)
For Kentucky on this date...An unusually cold air mass was in
place across eastern Kentucky back in 1960. The London Corbin
Airport established record low temperatures for five consecutive
days between the 4th and 8th of March. Additionally...temperatures
well below normal continued through the rest of March that year...
making it the second coldest March on record behind 1980. (NWS Jackson)
...1962...
A tremendous storm raged along the Atlantic coast. The great Atlantic storm
caused more than 200 million dollars property damage from Florida to New
England. Winds along the Middle Atlantic Coast reached 70 mph raising forty
foot waves, and as much as 33 inches of snow blanketed the mountains of
Virginia. The Virginia shoreline was rearranged by historic tidal flooding
caused by the combination of the long stretch of strong onshore winds and
the "Spring Tides". (David Ludlum)
