Big cold snap in mid Nov 1986. Broke 200+ records in 7 days.



And do you think its coincidence solar activity was ending its cycle and very low in the mid 1980s? #AllRelated

I understand that La Niña is regenerating, thank G-d for the future of this summer.
Unfortunately for this past summer, El Niño began evolving. Thus the rain. For this winter, anyone's guess. El Niño has brought snowless winters such as 1972-3 and 1997-8, and super-snowy ones such as 1968-9. 1977-8, and 2009-10.

29 year ago today, it was snowing in the Carolinas and didn't stop until Christmas Eve.

Myrtle Beach picked up 14" of snow and most of it was still on the ground Christmas morning. It's still the only white Christmas in recorded history for the area.

https://www.weather.gov/ilm/ChristmasSnow1989




Another good source with stories.


"The snow started falling just before midnight on Friday, Dec. 22, 1989. First there was an inch. Then came 9.6 inches on Saturday. And another 4.7 inches on Sunday, Christmas Eve. By Christmas morning, a total of 15.3 inches of snow had fallen and 13 inches continued to blanket the ground in Wilmington as the temperature dipped to 0 degrees.
By Weather Service standards, it was the only white Christmas the Port City and surrounding areas have ever had. The traces of snow that fell in 1948 and 1999 don’t count because they didn’t total an inch.


Both the 1989 snowfall and thermometer reading were historic for the N.C. coast"

OMG I remember watching this and being so mad. LOL. Listen to him talking about the warm Ridge out west which in turn dug a trough in the East.

How's this for history?

During the 1970s, scientists blamed cold on cold. Now they blame cold on heat. Lol.

41 Years ago today "Worst blizzard in Southern New England history". Feb 5-7, 1978 an Arctic airmass merged with an extratropical cyclone and stalled off the coast.

70-100mph winds, coastal flooding, stranded cars, 2-3 feet of snow, 6-10 foot drifts.
