On This Day in Wx History

1983 – Miami, Florida established a December record with a morning low of 33 degrees. Just three days earlier, and again three days later, record warm temperatures were reported in Florida, with daytime highs in the 80s.

Today’s National Wx Hazards

Snow is accumulating today across the northern tier of New England and the Great Lakes region. Even more snow is accumulating across the northern plains, northern Rockies, and Sierra Nevada. Freezing rain is the big issue today across much of South Dakota.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

Snow accumulates across the Great Lakes region and Upper Midwest, as well as across the Sierra Nevada Mountains, stretching eastward to Colorado. Freezing rain will threaten parts of New York state and Pennsylvania.
