February 5, 1887 
San Francisco experienced its greatest snowstorm of record. Nearly four inches was reported in downtown San Francisco, and the western hills of the city received seven inches. Excited crowds went on a snowball throwing rampage. (David Ludlum) 

February 5, 1987 
Thunderstorms in the Southern Plains Region caused flooding in parts of south central Texas. Del Rio TX was soaked with two inches of rain in two hours prior to sunrise. (The National Weather Summary) 

February 5, 1988 
Cold and snow invaded the southern U.S. Roswell NM was buried under 16.5 inches of snow in 24 hours, an all-time record for that location. Parts of the Central Gulf Coast Region reported their first significant snow in fifteen years. Strong winds in Minnesota and the Dakotas produced wind chill readings as cold as 75 degrees below zero. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

February 5, 1989 
Severe cold gripped much of the nation. Thirty cities reported new record low temperatures for the date. Morning lows of 9 above at Astoria OR and 27 below zero at Ely NV were records for February. In Alaska, Point Barrow warmed to 24 degrees above zero, and Nome reached 30 degrees. (The National Weather Summary) 

February 5, 1990 
For the second time in two days, and the third time in a week, high winds plagued the northwestern U.S. Winds in Oregon gusted to 60 mph at Cape Disappointment, and wind gusts in Washington State reached 67 mph at Bellingham. The first in a series of cold fronts began to produce heavy snow in the mountains of Washington and Oregon. Ten inches of snow fell at Timberline OR. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

February 5, 2006 
Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire reaches a high of 41°F, the warmest February 5th on record at the summit and two degrees off the monthly mark, where records have been kept since 1932. The Weather Doctor 

February 5, 2008 
The deadliest round of tornadoes in nearly a quarter century kill 58 people in the south. The storms kill 32 people in Tennessee, 14 in Arkansas, seven in Kentucky and five in Alabama. Damage is likely to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. The Weather Doctor 

February 5, 2010 
A mega-snowstorm, which President Obama dubbed Snowmageddon, buried the Washington D.C. area with more than 30 inches of snow in some areas. At American University in Washington the official snowfall was 27.5 inches. Snowfall totals in the Washington DC area range from a low of 17.9 inches at Ronald Reagan National Airport to 40 inches in the northern suburb of Colesville, MD. Dulles Airport reported 32.4 inches, which established a new two-day snowfall record. The Baltimore-Washington International Airport, MD, measured 24.8 inches from the storm breaking the record for the largest two day snowfall there. It is one of the worst blizzards in the city's history.

    • MD 1492 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 512... FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHEASTERN WY INTO SOUTHWESTERN SD AND WESTERN NE Mesoscale Discussion 1492 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0700 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...Portions of northeastern WY into southwestern SD and western NE Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512... Valid 170000Z - 170130Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512 continues. SUMMARY...Relatively greater severe potential should exist across northeastern WY into southwestern SD over the next couple of hours. Overall severe threat will likely remain more isolated in western NE. DISCUSSION...A small arcing band of convection will move from east-central into northeastern WY and southwestern SD this evening. The airmass downstream of this activity remains moderately to strongly unstable, with MLCAPE generally 2000-3000 J/kg. Enhanced mid-level west-southwesterly flow associated with an ejecting shortwave trough over the northern Rockies and Great Basin overlies this region. Corresponding effective bulk shear values of 40-50 kt will promote continued storm organization and intensity. A relatively greater potential for both large hail and severe wind gusts should exist across portions of northeastern WY and southwestern SD in the next couple of hours as ongoing storms spread northeastward. Farther south into western NE, the severe threat will likely remain more isolated due to weak ridging remaining over this area. Also, recent mesoanalysis suggests weak convective inhibition exists across western into central NE, which may act to suppress/weaken storms in the western NE Panhandle as they move eastward this evening. Additional watch issuance into more of western NE will probably not be needed this evening. ..Gleason.. 07/17/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1491 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHEASTERN MT Mesoscale Discussion 1491 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0555 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...Portions of northeastern MT Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 162255Z - 170100Z Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent SUMMARY...An isolated supercell thunderstorm will contain both a large hail and damaging wind threat as it moves across northeastern MT over the next couple of hours. Watch issuance is unlikely unless additional severe storms develop. DISCUSSION...An isolated storm has developed just east of Glasgow MT, possibly in association with a low-amplitude shortwave trough over western SK. This storm has developed mid-level rotation per recent KGGW radar velocity data, and 30-40 kt of effective bulk shear will likely continue to support supercell characteristics in the short term. Both large hail and severe wind gusts will remain possible with this isolated storm as it moves slowly eastward into a slightly more favorable thermodynamic environment in far northeastern MT. At this point, it remains unclear if any additional storms will develop across this region through the early evening. Watch issuance remains unlikely in the short term, mainly due to the very isolated severe threat posed by this single storm. However, watch probability would increase if more convection developed and subsequently strengthened. ..Gleason/Grams.. 07/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1490 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 512... FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN ND AND NORTHERN SD Mesoscale Discussion 1490 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0505 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...Portions of southern ND and northern SD Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512... Valid 162205Z - 162300Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512 continues. SUMMARY...Thunderstorms developing along a boundary near the ND/SD border should move eastward over the next couple of hours while posing a threat for large hail. Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512 may need to be extended eastward to address this potential, or a new watch may be issued. DISCUSSION...Storms are forming along a baroclinic zone along/near the ND/SD border. A moderately to strongly unstable airmass exists to the south of this boundary, with MLCAPE around 1500-2500 J/kg owing to steepening mid-level lapse rates over this region and ample diurnal heating this afternoon. KBIS VWP shows around 40-50 kt of mid-level flow, which is slightly stronger than forecast by the RAP at 22Z. Similar values of effective bulk shear and a long, generally straight hodograph above 3 km will support initial supercell structures with a large hail threat. Severe downdraft winds could also occur. This recent convective development is on the northeastern periphery of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512, and additional cumulus development has recently occurred farther east into north-central SD along the surface boundary. Either an eastward extension of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 512 or a new watch may be needed if current convective trends continue. ..Gleason/Grams.. 07/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1489 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY FOR PORTIONS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC Mesoscale Discussion 1489 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0228 PM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019 Areas affected...portions of the Mid-Atlantic Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 161928Z - 162200Z Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent SUMMARY...Isolated damaging winds may occur from pulse thunderstorms this afternoon and evening across portions of the Mid-Atlantic. A watch issuance is unlikely. DISCUSSION...A hot, moist airmass is in place across the Mid-Atlantic with surface temperatures in the 90s F and dewpoints in the 70s. MLCAPE of 1000-3000 J/kg has developed due to diabatic heating with terrain-thermal circulations helping to initiate storms over the higher terrain from central PA into northeast WV/northwest VA. Storms will move off the higher terrain to the east-southeast and may grow upscale into a loose multicell cluster. Additionally, the sea breeze and breached convective temperatures are developing storms across the Tidewater region and into North Carolina. With weak flow through the column, disorganized multicellular convection is expected with isolated damaging winds possible, especially as storms collapse. ..Nauslar/Thompson.. 07/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
