Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
FEBRUARY 26TH HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS ...1910... Parts of Washington State were in the midst of a storm which produced 129 inches of snow at Laconia between the 24th and the 26th, a single storm record for the state. A series of storms, which began on the 23rd, led to a deadly avalanche on the first of March. By late on the 28th, the snow had changed to rain, setting the stage for disaster. (The Weather Channel) ...1972... The Buffalo Creek disaster occurred in the Buffalo Creek Hollow of Logan County in West Virginia. A coal slag dam on the Middle Fork of Buffalo Creek burst sending a fifty foot wall of water down a narrow valley killing 125 persons and causing 51 million dollars damage. Three days of rain atop a six inches snow cover prompted the dam break. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel) ...2000... A deep low pressure system centered over the central plains set up strong southerly flow over the commonwealth bringing unseasonably mild temperatures to the region over a three day period which peaked on the 26th. The mercury climbed to 75 degrees in London, not enough to unseat the record for this date of 81 degrees which was set in 1977. At the Jackson Airport afternoon temperatures of 76 degrees on the 25th and 26th were both warm enough to establish the current record highs for both dates. Lexington hit 74 and Louisville hit 77. Climate records for London and Jackson date back to 1954 and 1981 respectively. (NWS Jackson)
