This morning over the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

January 17, 1817 
A luminous snowstorm occurred in Vermont and New Hampshire. Saint Elmo's fire appeared as static discharges on roof peaks, fence posts, and the hats and fingers of people. Thunderstorms prevailed over central New England. (David Ludlum) 

January 17, 1893 
The mercury dipped to 17 degrees below zero at Millsboro, DE, to establish a state record. (The Weather Channel) 

January 17, 1972 
A single storm unloaded 77.5 inches of snow at Summit, MT, to establish a state record. (The Weather Channel) 

January 17, 1982 
Strong Chinook winds caused severe wind damage in Boulder, CO. Wind gusts to 118 mph was recorded on the roof of the Environmental Research Laboratories (ERL), and a wind gust to 137 mph was measured atop the roof of the NCAR building (in the southwest part of the city, 600 feet above ground level). The high winds uprooted trees and damage roofs. (Storm Data) 

January 17, 1987 
A winter storm spread snow from the Southern Rockies into the Middle Mississippi Valley and southwestern sections of the Great Lakes Region, and freezing rain across Texas and Oklahoma. Snowfall totals ranged up to 16 inches at Tulia TX, with 12 inches at Wellington KS. (National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

January 17, 1988 
A Pacific storm battered the southern coast of California. Winds gusting to 65 mph uprooted trees in San Diego. Los Angeles reported an all-time record low barometeric pressure reading of 29.25 inches. (National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

January 17, 1989 
Strong chinook winds along the eastern slopes of the Rockies gusted to 90 mph near Rollinsville CO, and reached 94 mph near Big Timber MT. Heavy snow blanketed parts of the Upper Mississippi Valley, with eight inches reported in Douglas County WI. (National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

January 17, 1990 
Twenty cities across the southeastern half of the country reported record high temperatures for the date. Record highs included 61 degrees at Williamstown PA and 85 degrees at Brownsville TX. Evening thunderstorms produced large hail and damaging winds from eastern Texas to Mississippi. (National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

January 17, 2010 
A series of strong Pacific storms impacted Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah from January 17th through 23rd, leaving behind several feet of snow across the higher terrain and breaking numerous lowest barometric pressure records across the region. Sunrise Mountain, Arizona received 77 inches of snow, while Mammoth Lakes, California received 90 inches. (NCDC) 

January 17, 2013
A stationary front draped across the region combined with near record precipitable water values for the month of January and provided the fuel for heavy rainfall from January 14
th to January 18th. Most areas north and west of I-85 received over 3 inches for the week; however, the heaviest rainfall occurred in extreme north Georgia where some locations received between 6 and 8 inches of rain. Flooding of creeks and streams occurred across many rivers and streams in north Georgia. For more information, visit the event summary. (NWS Atlanta)

    • MD 1767 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY FOR CENTRAL AND NORTHERN ILLINOIS AND WESTERN INDIANA Mesoscale Discussion 1767 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0800 AM CDT Sat Aug 17 2019 Areas affected...central and northern Illinois and western Indiana Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 171300Z - 171500Z Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will continue to move out of Missouri and into central Illinois this morning. Additional thunderstorms will be possible across northern Illinois as well. Hail and gusty winds may be possible with the strongest cores. The area will be monitored for potential watch, but current indications are that the threat should remain sufficiently isolated to not warrant one. DISCUSSION...Long-lived cluster of thunderstorms continues to move east from northern Missouri into central Iowa. Most-unstable CAPE along and ahead of this cluster is around 1000-1500 J/kg; however, deep-layer shear is generally less than 25 knots. Thus, although a severe hail or strong thunderstorm wind gust will be possible with the strongest cores, the threat should remain sufficiently isolated/episodic that a watch is not currently anticipated for this activity. To the north, across northern Illinois, additional thunderstorms may develop within a belt of stronger midlevel flow, likely in response to ageostrophic forcing from the mesoscale convective system to the southwest. The result will be thunderstorms developing in an objectively analyzed environment of most-unstable CAPE around 1000-1500 J/kg and deep-layer shear of 40-50 knots. Although this would normally suggest a threat for organized severe thunderstorms, considerable uncertainty remains regarding convective coverage and longevity. As such, area will continue to be monitored for potential watch, but expectations are that the threat will remain too isolated in nature to warrant watch issuance. ..Marsh/Edwards.. 08/17/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • Saturday, August 17 2019 Preference: Blend of the 00Z GFS/ECMWF, and GEFS/ECENS means Confidence: Average The large scale flow across the CONUS will remain broadly cyclonic through the weekend, although gradual height rises are expected by later Sunday and early next week across the central and southern U.S. Shortwaves rotating through the flow will be the primary sensible weather makers, and it is discrepancy among these features that lead to the preferred blend. The most notable differences involve the 00Z NAM which continues to be a relatively strong outlier with several of these vort lobes impacting the Plains/Midwest that are shedding around a complex of upper lows in Canada. In fact, the NAM gradually becomes out of tolerance with the global model consensus across much of central/southern Canada by the end of the period. The 00Z UKMET also is problematic with energy it has lifting up across the upper Midwest through early Sunday as it is sharper and stronger with a surface wave lifting up along a cold front crossing this region. The UKMET also is out of tolerance across Canada versus the model consensus, which is strongly supported at this point by the 00Z GFS and 00Z ECMWF overall. Across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coastal plain, a persistent and quasi-stationary frontal zone is expected to be the focus for multiple waves of low pressure. One wave of low pressure will eject northeast off the Mid-Atlantic coast and out to sea on Saturday. Meanwhile, a second wave of low pressure situated already down across northern FL will lift northeast very close to the Southeast and southern-Mid-Atlantic coastline through Sunday before then exiting offshore and out to sea on Monday. The 00Z NAM, 00Z CMC and especially the 00Z UKMET intensify this low center as it lifts northeast up the coast, with the 00Z GFS and 00Z ECMWF showing more modest development. A large number of Canadian ensemble members and a fair number of the GEFS members favor at least a modest low center, with the vast majority of the ECENS members more ill-defined. The 00Z NAM-conest, 00Z ARW/ARW2 solutions show a bit more development comparable to the NAM, but the 00Z NMMB is a weak outlier. There is strong support toward a GFS/ECMWF blend out of the latest GEFS/ECENS means across the CONUS, and thus a blend of all of these will be preferred at this point. However, a slightly stronger version of the GFS/ECMWF solutions is suggested along the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts with the low center lifting northeast across these areas on Sunday.
