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 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...
