Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

FEBRUARY 13TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1784...
Ice floes blocked the Mississippi River at New Orleans, then passed into
the Gulf of Mexico. The only other time this occurred was during the "Great
Arctic Outbreak" of 1899. (David Ludlum)
...1885...
The "Friday the 13th" avalanche at Alva UT killed sixteen persons, and left
thirteen others buried for twelve hours before being rescued. (David
Ludlum)
...1889...
It was the coldest morning of record along the Gulf Coast. The temperature
dipped to 7 above zero at New Orleans LA and Pensacola FL, and plunged to
-1 degree at Mobile AL. The mercury dipped to -2 degrees at Tallahassee,
the coldest reading of record for the state of Florida. For Kentucky...
Lexington's coolest February temperature: -20 degrees. Coldest temperature on 
record at Irvington (-25), Leitchfield (-26), Richmond (-24), and Russellville 
(-22).(David Ludlum)
...1985...
The heaviest snow storm of the season...back in 1985...was coming to an end 
today across the Bluegrass state.  Long time residents of Southeast Kentucky 
said it was the worst snowstorm they had remembered.  Both the London-Corbin 
airport and the Jackson Weather Office received near a foot of snow from this 
strong February snow storm which left some Kentucky residents without power for 
5 days.  One death was attributed to this winter storm when a 74 year old Laurel 
River man died from a heart attack while shoveling snow on February 13th.
