March 5, 1960 
Eastern Massachusetts greatest March snowstorm of record began to abate. The storm produced record 24 hour snowfall totals of 27.2 inches at Blue Hill Observatory, 17.7 inches at Worcester, and 16.6 inches at Boston. Winds gusted to 70 mph. (3rd-5th) (The Weather Channel) 

March 5, 1962 
A tremendous storm raged along the Atlantic coast. The great Atlantic storm caused more than 200 million dollars property damage from Florida to New England. Winds along the Middle Atlantic Coast reached 70 mph raising forty foot waves, and as much as 33 inches of snow blanketed the mountains of Virginia. The Virginia shoreline was rearranged by historic tidal flooding caused by the combination of the long stretch of strong onshore winds and the Spring Tides. (David Ludlum) 

March 5, 1987 
A storm in the western U.S. produced heavy rain and high winds in California. Up to six inches of rain soaked the San Francisco Bay area in 24 hours, and winds gusted to 100 mph at the Wheeler Ridge Pumping Plant near the Tehachapi Mountains. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 5, 1988 
While snow blanketed eastern Kansas and northern Oklahoma, eight cities in North Dakota reported new record high temperatures for the date. The afternoon high of 61 degrees at Bismarck ND was 27 degrees warmer than that at Chanute KS. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 5, 1989 
Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the southeastern U.S. A strong (F-2) tornado killed one person and injured six others in Heard County GA. A strong (F-3) tornado injured 23 persons and caused more than five million dollars damage around Grantville GA. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 5, 1990 
Thunderstorms over eastern Colorado, developing ahead of a major storm system, produced up to three inches of small hail around Colorado Springs in the late morning and early afternoon. Strong thunderstorms swept through southeastern sections of the Denver area during the evening hours. These strong thunderstorms also produced up to three inches of small hail, along with wind gusts to 50 mph, and as much as 2.4 inches of rain. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 5, 2013
An EF-1 tornado occurred in Glascock County. The worst of the damage occurred at the Magnolia Baptist Church where up to 60 percent of the roof was ripped off the main brick sanctuary. The roof was completely torn off the fellowship hall on the west side of the church and most of the four brick walls collapsed. Numerous tombstones and other structures at the cemetery near the church were also damaged. For more information, visit the 
event summary. (NWS Atlanta)

    • MD 0433 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 98... FOR CENTRAL...SOUTHERN...AND SOUTHEASTERN TEXAS Mesoscale Discussion 0433 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0231 PM CDT Wed Apr 24 2019 Areas affected...central...southern...and southeastern Texas Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 98... Valid 241931Z - 242100Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 98 continues. SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across WW 98. Areas south of WW 98 may experience convective development later, with hail and gusty winds possible. DISCUSSION...The severe threat continues across WW 98. Most of the ongoing convection continues along and north of an outflow boundary located from roughly 50 W COT to near/northwest of NIR to just south of CLL. This boundary separates surface-based convection from more elevated convection atop a relatively stable low-level airmass. Nevertheless, a linear, mostly sub-severe complex has begun to forward-propagate across northern and central portions of WW 98, and should impact the Austin/San Antonio Metro areas around 21Z or so. These storms will need to reach a more buoyant airmass located east of the aforementioned outflow to have a more extensive severe threat - though surface obs indicate that outflow has started to retreat northward near Fayette and Gonzales Counties. It is not out of the question for the southern flank of the ongoing elevated MCS to begin ingesting more surface-based parcels over the next 2-3 hours. Farther south, mid-level capping has held strong and limited deep convective development. High-resolution models/CAMS indicate that at least isolated convective development will develop (most likely along a southeastward-moving composite outflow/cold front that moved through DRT over the past hour). Should these storms materialize, the threat for hail and damaging wind gusts may necessitate a WW issuance. ..Cook/Thompson.. 04/24/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • 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.
