NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
Snowfall blanketed much of the central part of the nation on 
Saturday, with snowfall observed from Lubbock, Texas, to Marquette, 
Michigan. Notable snowfall totals were found in many locations 
including 6.0 inches in Lawton, Oklahoma, and 9.6 inches in Iron 
Mountain, Michigan; 2.0 inches of snow was reported at Tulsa, 
Oklahoma, as well. Elsewhere, showers and thunderstorms erupted in 
the South, spreading torrential rain across that region. A total of 
2.56 inches of rainfall fell in Monticello, Arkansas, and 2.35 inches 
fell in Bogalusa, Louisiana.       
In the East ahead of an advancing cold front, temperatures were 
unseasonably warm, reaching the mid to upper 50s, including 55 at New 
York City and 57 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. These values were 15 
degrees above normal.              
SPECIAL WEATHER                    
Exceptional December Warmth in Erie
-On this date in 1982, Erie, Pennsylvania, reached 70 degrees, 
setting a record high for the date. This was the third time that 
month reaching or exceeding 70 degrees, breaking the December record 
of two times, done in both 1889 and 1941. Erie had previously reached 
70 degrees on the 2nd and an incredible 75 degrees on the 3rd, which 
also set the all-time record high for December. Five record highs 
were set in Erie in December 1982 (one of which has since been 
broken) and the month averaged 7.9 degrees above normal.
