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

In 1987, a powerful storm system produced a wide variety
of severe weather from the Southern Plains to the Lower
Mississippi Valley.  Heavy snow buried most areas from
the Southern Plains to the Mid Mississippi Valley.
Kansas City was buried with 10.8 inches of snow, which
had set a 24-hour record for December.Meanwhile the
Oklahoma Panhandle received as much as 14 inches of snow.
In stark contrast, West Memphis, TN was hit by an F3
tornado that killed 6 and injured around 200.  The
twister, which had a track 25 miles long and averaged 200
yards wide, left around 1,500 homeless and nearly all
residents in Crittendon County without power.
