NY. The storm drowned 200 persons. (David Ludlum)
...1961...
Rain changed to a record early season, heavy wet snow over the southern
mountains of West Virginia. Leaves were still on trees, resulting in the

snow fell near Summersville and Richwood. (19th-20th) (The Weather Channel)

Thunderstorms deluged the town of Odem TX (located 15 miles northwest of
Corpus Christi) with 25 inches of rain in just three and a half hours. Most
businesses in Odem were flooded, as were 1000 homes in nearby Sinton. (The
Weather Channel)
...1987...
A cold front brought rainshowers to parts of the central U.S., and ushered
cool Canadian air into the Great Plains Region. Daytime highs were only in
the 30s in North Dakota and eastern Montana. (The National Weather Summary)
