On This Day
1947- It’s an almost winter-like day in Middle Tennessee, as Nashville’s low drops to 36 degrees.
1981 – The Dallas/Fort Worth area experienced its worst hailstorm of record as baseball to grapefruit size hail, accompanied by 100 mph winds, caused nearly 200 million dollars damage. Hail accumulated eight inches deep at Cedar Hill, Texas.
1886 – Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta sells the first Coca-Cola (contained cocaine).
The data cutoff for Drought Monitor maps is each Tuesday at 7 a.m. The maps, which are based on analysis of the data, are released each Thursday at 7:30 a.m. This is the latest map!

Please note that the meteor storm on the 30-31 is quite uncertain. Still, astronomers invite us to look for this event because it could be quite remarkable!
