Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
The mercury plunged to 51 degrees below zero at Havre MT. It marked the
culmination of a two week long cold wave caused by a stagnate high pressure
area similar to those over Siberia during the winter. During the month of
November temperatures across Montana and the Dakotas averaged 15 to 25
degrees below normal. (David Ludlum)
Dense fog along the Jersey Turnpike resulted in a chain reaction of vehicle
collisions during the morning rush hour. A propane truck jacknifed and was
struck by a trailor truck, and other vehicles piled into the fiery mass.
Red River was buried under 34 inches of snow in 24 hours, establishing a
record for the state of New Mexico. (The Weather Channel)
