February 27, 1717
What was perhaps the greatest snow in New England history commenced on this date. During a ten day period a series of four snowstorms dumped three feet of snow upon Boston, and the city was snowbound for two weeks. Up to six feet of snow was reported farther to the north, and drifts covered many one story homes. (David Ludlum)

February 27, 1969
A record snowstorm in Maine came to an end. Two to four feet of snow buried southern and central Maine, with a state record of 57 inches reported at West Forks. Drifts covered many single story homes, and the weight of the snow collapsed many roofs. Two to four feet of snow also buried northeastern Vermont and northeastern Massachusetts. In New Hampshire, Mount Washington NH reported 97.8 inches of snow, a record storm total for New England. (24th-28th) (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)

February 27, 198
A storm spread heavy snow into the Central High Plains Region, and produced severe thunderstorms in the Southern Plains. Snowfall totals in western Nebraska ranged up to 19 inches at Sydney. Severe thunderstorms in Oklahoma produced baseball size hail at Stringtown and Atoka. A storm in the eastern U.S. produced heavy rain over the Carolinas and heavy snow in the southern Appalachians and piedmont region. Five inches of rain left four feet of water in the streets of Greenville SC. Snowfall totals in southwestern Virginia ranged up to 20 inches. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

February 27, 1988
Thunderstorms along a cold front produced heavy rain in southern California, with up to 2.52 inches reported in Ventura County. Strong winds accompanying the rain gusted to 55 mph in the Tehachapi Mountains. Rapid City SD established a February record with an afternoon high of 75 degrees. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

February 27, 1989
Rain and snow prevailed in the southeastern U.S. Up to eight inches of snow blanketed north central Tennessee, and snowfall totals in western North Carolina ranged up to 14 inches at Mount Mitchell. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

February 27, 1990
A winter storm produced heavy snow in southeastern Colorado, with 12 inches reported at Lamar. The same storm produced severe thunderstorms over the Southern High Plains, with wind gusts to 93 mph reported at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Low pressure brought high winds to the Prince William Sound area of Alaska. Big River Lakes reported wind gusts to 92 mph. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

February 27, 2010
A weak EF0 tornado causes no damage as it moved across California's southern San Joaquin Valley. However it is the only tornado reported in the United States during the month. According to the Storm Prediction Center only five months since 1950 have lacked a tornado report. The Weather Doctor

    • Here's a look at the 3 months with the most tornadoes. You can see that our numbers start to go down for May. https://www.ustornadoes.com/2016/04/06/annual-and-monthly-tornado-averages-across-the-united-states/
    • MD 0432 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE FOR CENTRAL INTO SOUTHEASTERN TEXAS Mesoscale Discussion 0432 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1011 AM CDT Wed Apr 24 2019 Areas affected...central into southeastern Texas Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible Valid 241511Z - 241715Z Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent SUMMARY...A WW issuance may be needed in portions of the discussion area - most likely from 16Z onward. DISCUSSION...Mostly sub-severe convection continues currently amidst a complicated surface pattern, with a remnant outflow extending from near CLL to 40 S SAT to near DRT. Surface-based convection persists near the outflow, with one dominant cell over western Gonzales county exhibiting signs of mid-level rotation. Though low-level wind fields remain weak, any favorable interaction between updrafts associated with this convection along the remnant outflow may result in a brief tornado. Over time, strengthening low-level wind fields associated with low-level cyclogenesis and approach of a mid-level wave centered over northern Mexico will probably result in 1) stalling and/or slow northward retreat of the outflow and 2) gradually increased organization of convection. Any storms near/south of this outflow will be surface-based owing to near 70F dewpoints, while steepening mid-level lapse rates will increase buoyancy and result in an increased threat for all modes of severe. North of the boundary, a gradually organizing linear complex near SJT and other scattered convection near HDO/SAT/AUS may pose a threat for marginally severe hail and perhaps an isolated damaging wind gust. Convective trends continue to be monitored, and a WW issuance may be needed at some point after 16Z or so. ..Cook/Thompson.. 04/24/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • Pollen count back up slightly after a couple of days of no readings. Of course they could have been at this level for the last two days, not out of the question.  
    • Just a reminder for everyone. The best way to get a complete weather summary for the day is by going to this link. It's a great overall view of the weather, not just for Georgia, but national wide. http://wx.northgeorgiawx.com/quick_weather_summary.html/ At the top of this page (on a computer), you would find it here. On a mobile device it will look different, but you'll find it.
