HISTORICAL WEATHER FACTS
...1943...
Chinook winds during the early morning hours caused the temperature at
Spearfish SD to rise from 4 below zero to 45 above in just two minutes, the
most dramatic temperature rise in world weather records. An hour and a half
later the mercury plunged from 54 above to 4 below zero in twenty-seven
minutes. (David Ludlum)
...1987...
A winter storm spread snow from central Mississippi through northern
Georgia to New England. Up to 15 inches of snow fell across the heavily
populated areas of Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. Traffic tie-ups nearly
paralyzed the Washington D.C. area. Winds gusted to 76 mph at Chatham MA,
and in Pennsylvania, snowfall totals ranged up to 21 inches at Dushore.

Mountains, and winds along the eastern slopes of the Rockies reached 100
mph in the Upper Yellowstone Valley of Montana. (National Weather Summary)
