Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

FEBRUARY 7TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1861...
The temperature at Gouverneur NY bottomed out at -40 degrees, a drop of 70
degrees in one day. Two days later the mercury hit 55 degrees. (David
Ludlum)
Hanover NH plunged from 37 degrees at 1 PM on the 7th to 32 degrees below
zero at 7 AM on the 8th, and West Cummington MA plummeted 80 degrees to -32
degrees. Boston MA plunged from 46 degrees to -14 degrees, and on the 11th
was back up to 60 degrees. (7th-8th) (The Weather Channel)
...1904...
Between 3:00 and 4:30 a.m., tornadoes, unofficially of F2 strength, hit the 
Kentucky communities of Cornishville, Dundee, and Cecilia, KY. (NWA Louisville)
...1934...
A deep freeze made it possible to drive from Bay Shore to Fire Island NY.
(Sandra and TI Richard Sanders - 1987)
...1978...
The great blizzard of '78 was coming to an end on this February day. Boston 
ended up with 27.1 inches of new snow while up to 50 inches fell in 
northern Rhode Island. A tremendous east/northeasterly gradient wind 
developed as a deep low pressure system bucked up against an enormous high 
to the north. This caused wind gusts as high as 92 mph at Chatham 
Massachusetts. East facing coastal regions were devastated by 4 successive 
high tides. The 14 foot tide recorded at Portland Maine was perhaps the 
highest recorded for the century. The storm caused 99 deaths...and total 
damage was over 600 million dollars.  
Even Kentucky experienced an impact as the London Corbin Airport set a 
noteworthy record during this storm. Cold air surged deep into the 
southern United States with record low temperatures set as far south as the 
Gulf Coast. In London...the low temperature plunged to minus 10 degrees on 
the morning of the seventh...which still stands in the record books as the 
daily low. Lexington reported minus 9 and Covington minus 10 degrees.
