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

In 2006, Wichita set its all time record high temperature
for the month of October when the mercury soared to 97
degrees.  The previous record high temperature for
October in Wichita had been 95 degrees set on October
8th, 1979.  In 2010, Tropical Storm Nicole finally
vacated the Mid-Atlantic Coast but not until inundating
much of the region with 1 to nearly 2 feet of rain in a 5
day period.  Hardest hit were the coasts of North
Carolina and Virginia, where 13 to nearly 23 inches of
rain caused horrific flooding that claimed 6 lives, 5 in
North Carolina and 1 in Pennsylvania.  Flooding was so
deep that cars actually floated atop each other.
Wilmington North Carolina `rained supreme` by measuring a
staggering 22.54 inches from September 26th to the 30th.
However, Nicole died a slow death as she would dump 6 to
10 inches of rain on New York City and Boston.
