NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
 
Snow departed the mid-Atlantic yesterday and shifted across eastern 
New England, coming to an end during the evening hours. Several 
inches of snow fell from Kentucky to Maine with the highest snow 
totals stretching from east-central Pennsylvania to western 
Connecticut. Rain fell south of the snow, mainly during the early 
morning hours before being followed up by a dry afternoon. One 
thunderstorm that rumbled across Florida on the southern extent of 
the system during the early morning hours spun up a brief tornado 
near the town of Englewood, but did not lead to any injuries or 
fatalities.                        
 
A system moving into the northern Plains spread showers of rain and 
snow over the region while the southern Plains remained dry. Gusty 
winds accompanied the disturbance with winds gusting up to 45 mph in 
Rapid City, South Dakota. Dry weather was experienced across a 
majority of the West Coast with temperatures running above normal. 
Santa Ana winds blew over parts of Southern California with the 
strongest gusts being strong enough to bring down trees.
 
 
SPECIAL WEATHER                    
 
Freezing Rain Across the Deep South......
 
Freezing rain coated parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas on 
this date in 2008, resulting in numerous accidents. One person was 
killed in a car accident in Grenada County, Mississippi, as a result 
of the ice. Another fatality was reported near Cherokee, Alabama, due 
to slick travel on a highway bridge.

____________________________________________________________________
Amarillo, Texas    1965    Winds of 75 mph sent dust to 31,000 feet
                           in a bad duststorm.

Western Europe     1990    A severe windstorm blew; winds reached
                           125 mph, causing 93 deaths and an
                           estimated $1 billion in damages. More
                           a million homes lost power. It was the
                           worst storm since 1703; the storm was
                           most vicious in Great Britain.
