Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
DECEMBER 16TH HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS ...1835... New England experienced one of their coldest days of record. At noon on that bitterly cold Wednesday the mercury stood at four degrees below at Boston, 15 degrees below at Norfolk CT, and 17 degrees below at Hanover NH. The temperature at Boston was 12 degrees below zero by sunset. Gale force winds accompanied the severe cold, and that night a great New York City fire destroyed much of the financial district. (David Ludlum) ...1869... A bill was introduced in the House of Representatives, 41st Congress, calling for the taking [of] meteorological observations at the military stations in the interior of the continent, and for giving notice on the northern lakes and Atlantic seaboard of the approach and force of storms. This would be signed in to law February 9, 1870, by President Grant, establishing what would come to be called the National Weather Service. You can see the actual bill on-line at: here. ...1917... An ice jam closed the Ohio River between Warsaw KY and Rising Sun IN. The thirty foot high ice jam held for 58 days, and backed up the river a distance of 100 miles. (David Ludlum) ...1987...
