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

In 1990, strong north winds whipped across areas from
Illinois to the Central and Southern Appalachians.  Winds
of 35 to 50 mph caused widespread blowing and drifting
snow across Northern and Central Indiana.  Gusts of 47
mph and 6 to 8 inches of snow produced a blizzard around
South Bend.  Numerous traffic accidents resulted in 2
deaths and 130 injuries.  Sixty five of those injured
were the result of one accident along Interstate 69 in
Northeast Indiana.  Gusts reaching 60 mph combined with 6
to 8 inches of snow to produce a severe blizzard across
Northern and Eastern Ohio.

In 1987, a winter storm began to invade the Western
United States.In Southern California, sleet whitened
coastal areas of Orange County and San Diego with three
inch accumulations in Huntington Beach.  Thunderstorms
also rumbled over these areas, producing hail and
waterspouts.
