Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
On This Day
1986 – An early season cold wave set more than 200 records from the northwestern U.S. to the east coast over a seven day period. For some places it proved to be the coldest weather of the entire winter season!
1989 – Unseasonably warm weather prevailed east of the Rockies. Temperatures reached 70 degrees as far north as New England, and readings in the 80s were reported across the southeast quarter of the nation. Nineteen cities reported record high temperatures for the date. For the second time in the month, Dallas/Fort Worth TX equalled their record for November with an afternoon high of 89 degrees! The high of 91 degrees at Waco, Texas, was their warmest of record for so late in the season. Meanwhile, heavy snow blanketed parts of Wyoming overnight, with a foot of snow reported at Cody, and 10 inches at Yellowstone Park.
