Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

MARCH 31ST
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1890...
Saint Louis MO received 20 inches of snow in 24 hours. It was the worst
snowstorm of record for the St Louis. (David Ludlum)
...1954...
The temperature at Rio Grande City TX hit 108 degrees, which for thirty
years was a U.S. record for the month of March. (The Weather Channel)
...1962...
A tornado struck the town of Milton FL killing 17 persons and injuring 100
others. It was the worst tornado disaster in Florida history. (David
Ludlum)
...1973...
A devastating tornado took a nearly continuous 75 mile path through north
central Georgia causing more than 113 million dollars damage, the highest
total of record for a natural disaster in the state. (The Weather Channel)
...2011... 
March 2011 ended on the chilly side. For 8 consecutive days the Jackson Weather 
Office recorded daytime highs anywhere from 8 to 23 degrees below normal. Above 
normal daytime highs were not forecast until around Sunday April, 3rd. If the 
forecast worked out...that would be 12 consecutive days with daytime high lower 
than normal. This maybe traumatizing to some...however it doesn't match the 19 
consecutive days with below normal high temperatures that occurred during March 
and April 1992.
