killed. (The Weather Channel)
...1970...
Afternoon highs of 103 degrees at Long Beach CA and 105 degrees at the Los
Angeles Civic Center were the hottest since September records were

A record early season snowstorm struck the Central High Plains Region. The
storm left up to nineteen inches of snow along the Colorado Front Range,
and as much as a foot of snow in the High Plains Region. (Storm Data)

While those at the base of Mount Washington NH enjoyed sunny skies and
temperatures in the 70s, the top of the mountain was blanketed with 4.7
inches of snow, along with wind gusts to 99 mph, and a temperature of 13

central U.S. A thunderstorm west of Noodle TX produced golf ball size hail
