NATIONAL SUMMARY -It was a seasonable day across the East Thursday with temperatures running near or below normal across much of the region. Dry weather accompanied the cool air with the exception of spotty showers downwind of lakes Erie and Ontario. A disturbance moving into the Great Lakes brought showers to the region with some wet snowflakes mixing in over northern portions of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan. Showers from this disturbance reached all the way south into Missouri. Chilly weather filtered in across the northern Plains behind the disturbance with the high in Bismarck, North Dakota, being kept in the 30s. This was the first time this has happened in Bismarck since April 16. It was a much warmer day farther south across the Plains with high pressure promoting dry conditions over the region. -Rain began to build over the Pacific Northwest Thursday ahead of a system moving into the West. Dry conditions were over the rest of the region; however, this will not be the case for long; the approaching storm will spread rain over much of the region by the weekend. SPECIAL WEATHER Remembering an Early Season Snowstorm -A snowstorm affected much of the East back on this date of 1993 with snow falling from New York to Georgia. Binghamton, New York, recorded 6.2 inches of snow from this event, setting a new October snowfall record for the city. Snow from this storm fell as far south as Atlanta. WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS Record Highs from Thursday: -Burley, ID tied the record of 73 degrees, originally set in 1990. -Ely, NV tied the record of 72 degrees, originally set in 1965. -Stanley, ID set a record of 63 degrees, breaking the record of 61 degrees set in 1983.
