JANUARY 30TH
HISTORICAL WEATHER FACTS
...1936...
Birmingham AL established a single storm record and 24 hour record with 11
inches of snow. (29th-30th) (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...1966...
Record cold was experienced throughout Kentucky, with Louisville falling to 
-9, Lexington -10, and Bowling Green -11. (NWS Louisville)
...1977...
The great "Buffalo Blizzard" finally abated after three days. The storm
added a foot of new snow to 33 inches already on the ground. Winds gusting
to 75 mph reduced visibilities to near zero, produced snow drifts
twenty-five feet high, and kept wind chill readings 50 degrees below zero.
The blizzard paralyzed the city, and caused 250 million dollars damage.
(David Ludlum)
...1987...
A winter storm brought more heavy snow to the North Atlantic Coast Region,
with 13.6 inches reported at Hiram ME. January proved to be the snowiest of
record for much of Massachusetts. Worcester MA reported an all-time monthly
record of 46.8 inches of snow. (National Weather Summary)
...1988...
Strong southerly winds, gusting to 53 mph at Kansas City MO, spread warm
air into the central U.S. Nineteen cities reported record high temperatures
for the date. Snow and strong northwest winds ushered cold arctic air into
the north central states. The temperature at Cutbank plunged from 54
degrees to a morning low of 7 degrees below zero. (National Weather
Summary)
...1989...
The temperature at McGrath AK dipped to 62 degrees below zero, and
Fairbanks reported a reading of 51 degrees below zero, with unofficial
readings in the area as cold as 75 degrees below zero. The massive dome of
bitterly cold air began to slide down western Canada toward the north
central U.S. Strong southwest winds ahead of the arctic front pushed the
temperature at Great Falls MT to 62 degrees, and gusted to 124 mph at
Choteau MT, overturning trucks and mobile homes, and a dozen empty railroad
cars. (National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1990...
A major winter storm produced heavy snow from Indiana to New England. It
was the biggest storm in two and a half years for eastern New York State.
Snowfall totals in the mountains of Maine ranged up to 20 inches at
Guilford and Lovell. Other heavy snowfall totals included 17 inches at
Utica NY, and 19 inches at Bethel VT, Ludlow VT, and New London NH. The
