Picture1993 Storm of The Century

March 13, 1907 
A storm produced a record 5.22 inches of rain in 24 hours at Cincinnati, OH. (12th-13th) (The Weather Channel) 

March 13, 1951 
The state of Iowa experienced a record snowstorm. The storm buried Iowa City under 27 inches of snow. (David Ludlum) 

March 13, 1977 
Baltimore, MD, received an inch of rain in eight minutes. (Sandra and TI Richard Sanders - 1987) 

March 13, 1987 
A winter storm produced heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada Range of California, and the Lake Tahoe area of Nevada. Mount Rose NV received 18 inches of new snow. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 13, 1988 
Unseasonably cold weather prevailed from the Plateau Region to the Appalachians. Chadron NE, recently buried 33 inches of snow, was the cold spot in the nation with a low of 19 degrees below zero. (The National Weather Summary) 

March 13, 1989 
Residents of the southern U.S. viewed a once in a life-time display of the Northern Lights. Unseasonably warm weather continued in the southwestern U.S. The record high of 88 degrees at Tucson AZ was their seventh in a row. In southwest Texas, the temperature at Sanderson soared from 46 degrees at 8 AM to 90 degrees at 11 AM. (The National Weather Summary) 

March 13, 1990 
Thunderstorms produced severe weather from northwest Texas to Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska during the day, and into the night. Severe thunderstorms spawned 59 tornadoes, including twenty-six strong or violent tornadoes, and there were about two hundred reports of large hail or damaging winds. There were forty-eight tornadoes in Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa, and some of the tornadoes in those three states were the strongest of record for so early in the season, and for so far northwest in the United States. The most powerful tornado of the day was one which tore through the central Kansas community of Hesston. The tornado killed two persons, injured sixty others, and caused 22 million dollars along its 67-mile path. The tornado had a life span of two hours. Another tornado tracked 124 miles across southeastern Nebraska injuring eight persons and causing more than five million dollars damage 

March 13, 1993
The Superstorm of 1993 (also called the 
Storm of the Century) was one of the most intense mid-latitude cyclones ever observed over the Eastern United States. The storm will be remembered for its tremendous snowfall totals from Alabama through Maine, high winds all along the East coast, extreme coastal flooding along the Florida west coast, incredibly low barometric pressures across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, and for the unseasonably cold air that followed behind the storm. In terms of human impact the Superstorm of 1993 was more significant than most landfalling hurricanes or tornado outbreaks and ranks among the deadliest and most costly weather events of the 20th century.

    • MD 1265 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 451... FOR CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA...FAR SOUTHERN NORTH DAKOTA Mesoscale Discussion 1265 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0215 AM CDT Thu Jun 27 2019 Areas affected...central and northeast South Dakota...far southern North Dakota Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 451... Valid 270715Z - 270915Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 451 continues. SUMMARY...A line of storms will continue to evolve as it travels northeast across WW 451, with a few damaging wind gusts and marginal hail expected. DISCUSSION...An initial line of storms over northwest SD has dissipated from the south, and merged with a band of storms associated with 850 mb warm/moist advection over central SD. Despite the loss of convection with the western line, severe outflow winds have spread well south of the area and through Rapid City. Over the last hour, the warm-advection storms (now extending from Corson county through Pierre and toward Chamberlain) have shown signs of marginal hail and wind. The air mass ahead of this line remains strongly unstable, and new outflow produced should aid a continued northeastward propagation. Further, strong outflow from the western SD activity is now merging with northern portions of the leading line over north central SD. It is possible that lift will then increase as the deeper outflow undercuts existing storms. Trends will continue to be monitored for any line enhancement, and possible downstream watch into the eastern Dakotas. ..Jewell.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1264 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 450... FOR PARTS OF WESTERN NEBRASKA AND SOUTH DAKOTA Mesoscale Discussion 1264 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0958 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019 Areas affected...Parts of western Nebraska and South Dakota Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 450... Valid 270258Z - 270400Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 450 continues. SUMMARY...Thunderstorms spreading across and northeast of the Badlands may continue to intensify late this evening, while another evolving cluster of storms poses an increasing risk for strong surface gusts and hail across into northwestern South Dakota by 10 PM-Midnight MDT. Trends are being monitored for a watch extension and/or new severe weather watch north and east of severe thunderstorm watch 450. DISCUSSION...Large-scale forcing for ascent associated with the mid-level short wave trough has been weak enough that thunderstorm increase and intensification has been slowed by mid-level inhibition associated with the very warm elevated mixed-layer air. Still, isolated stronger storms have been accompanied by severe hail, and severe gusts (52 kt) at Chadron, as well as near severe gusts (48 kt) at Alliance. A conglomerate surface cold pool generated by this convection appears to have developed, with 2-4 mb 2-hourly surface pressure rises noted at Chadron and Alliance in 27/02Z surface data. At least attempts at vigorous new convective development continue on the northern portion of the cold pool, now spreading into the Badlands of South Dakota. As this progresses northeastward, into a more weakly capped (as inferred from the 700 mb thermal gradient) boundary layer still characterized by large CAPE, there still appears potential for rapid intensification near/north of the Interstate 90 corridor. Additionally, strong to severe convection is in the process of growing upscale to the east of the Bighorns. This activity may continue to evolve into an increasingly organized mesoscale convective system, in the presence of at least moderately large CAPE and westerly deep-layer shear, while developing eastward along the lower/mid tropospheric baroclinic zone into northwestern South Dakota through 04-06z. As it does, thermodynamic profiles appear supportive of increasing potential for strong surface gusts, in addition to a continuing risk for severe hail. ..Kerr.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1263 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 449... FOR MUCH OF MONTANA AND FAR NORTH-CENTRAL WYOMING Mesoscale Discussion 1263 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0703 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019 Areas affected...much of Montana and far north-central Wyoming Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 449... Valid 270003Z - 270100Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 449 continues. SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across WW 449. DISCUSSION...Within the past hour, satellite/lightning imagery has indicated an overall increase in convective coverage across WW 449. The environment continues to support damaging wind gusts and large hail given weak to moderate instability (700-2500 J/kg MUCAPE) and strong deep shear (50 kts 0-6km shear). The boundary layer across this region is well mixed, with weak low-level wind fields (outside of thunderstorm cores) and cloud bases rooted around 3km. Thus, the expectation is that storms will be outflow dominant and perhaps grow upscale into linear segments - especially across southeastern Montana - which should continue to foster a wind/hail threat through the next few hours. Additional convection just south of the WW (across far northeastern Idaho and northern Wyoming) will also enter the WW area and pose a wind/hail threat. ..Cook.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1262 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 450... FOR EASTERN WYOMING...WESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA...AND WESTERN NEBRASKA Mesoscale Discussion 1262 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0701 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019 Areas affected...Eastern Wyoming...western South Dakota... and western Nebraska Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 450... Valid 270001Z - 270200Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 450 continues. SUMMARY...Rapid thunderstorm intensification and upscale growth appears possible through 7-9 PM MDT. Strongest storms pose a risk for large to very large hail, and perhaps some risk for a tornado, before the risk for damaging wind gusts becomes more prominent. DISCUSSION...Convective development which initiated near/northeast of the Laramie Mountains is now east of the Interstate 25 corridor, and continues to spread northeastward and eastward into the adjacent High Plains. This appears to be occurring just ahead of a weak mid-level trough axis, within 15-20 kt west-southwesterly deep layer mean ambient flow. Due to pronounced veering of wind fields with height, deep-layer shear is sufficiently strong for organized severe convection, including supercells, however. And, objective analysis indicates that the environment across the Sand Hills of Nebraska into the Badlands of South Dakota has become characterized by strong instability. This includes CAPE in excess of 4000 J/kg, in the presence of steep lapse rates. As storms spread into this environment through 01-03Z, rapid thunderstorm intensification appears possible, with considerable further upscale convective growth in the presence of strengthening southerly 850 mb flow to 30 kt. This may be most pronounced near the Nebraska/South Dakota border area, near/northwest of Chadron, through the Badlands, where inhibition associated with very warm elevated mixed-layer air appears weakest. ..Kerr.. 06/27/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
