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

In 1988, atmospheric bedlam broke out over much of the
Central and Southern United States.  While parts of
Colorado and Nebraska were buried under 2 to 3 feet of
snow, tornado producing severe thunderstorms ravaged the
lower Mississippi Valley.  Eight tornadoes rated F2 to F4
tore through parts of Mississippi Tennessee and Alabama.
The strongest twister, an F4, struck Attala County in
Central Mississippi.  Fortunately there were no deaths or
injuries from this tornado.  However an F3 tornado, one
of three that occurred that day, injured 35 people and
caused $11 million damage as it roared across Cullman
County in North Central Alabama.  A second F3 twister
killed 3 and injured 24 when it tore through Fayette
County in Southwest Tennessee.In 1962, Wichita measured
its greatest snow depth ever: 17 inches.

In 1977, light snow was observed in Miami Beach and
Homestead Florida.
