...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 1987, a winter storm hit the Great Lakes Region,
intensifying explosively as it crossed Northern Illinois.
High winds, with gusts that reached around 75 mph, and
heavy snow produced a severe blizzard in Southeast
Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, where most areas were
buried under 12 to 17 inches of snow.  The barometric
pressure in Chicago dropped three quarters of an inch in
6 hours to a low of 28.96 inches, the lowest barometric
pressure on record for the Windy City in December.
O`Hare International was closed for only the 4th time in
20 years.
