for March 25 


March 25, 1843 
A second great snowstorm hit the northeastern U.S. The storm produced snow from Maine all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Natchez MS received three inches of snow, and up to 15 inches buried eastern Tennessee. Coastal Maine received 204 inches of snow that winter. (David Ludlum) 

March 25, 1914 
Society Hill, SC, was buried under 18 inches of snow, establishing a state record. (Sandra and TI Richard Sanders - 1987) 

March 25, 1934 
A spring storm produced 21 inches of snow at Amarillo TX in 24 hours. However, much of the snow melted as it fell, and as a result, the snow cover was never any deeper than 4.5 inches. (David Ludlum) 

March 25, 1948 
For the second time in less than a week airplanes were destroyed by a tornado at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City OK. A March 20th tornado destroyed fifty planes at Tinker AFB causing more than ten million dollars damage, and the March 25th tornado destroyed another thirty-five planes causing six million dollars damage. The first tornado struck without warning, and caused more damage than any previous tornado in the state of Oklahoma. The second tornado was predicted by Fawbush and Miller of the United States Air Force, and their accurate tornado forecast ushered in the modern era of severe weather forecasting. (The Weather Channel) (Storm Data) (The National Severe Storms Forecast Center) 

March 25, 1975 
The town of Sandberg reported a wind gust to 101 mph, a record for the state of California. (The Weather Channel) 

March 25,  1983
Despite having seasonally moved into Spring, Winter was still holding on in north Georgia. Two inches of snow fell at Blairsville this day, ranking number seven on the highest daily snowfall amounts for the month of March at Blairsville. (NWS Atlanta)


March 25, 1987 
Heavy rain left rivers and streams swollen in Kansas and Nebraska, causing considerable crop damage due to flooding of agricultural areas. The Saline River near Wilson Reservoir in central Kansas reached its highest level since 1951. March rainfall at Grand Island NE exceeded their previous record of 5.57 inches. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 25, 1988 
An early season heat wave prevailed in the southwestern U.S. The high of 93 degrees at Tucson, AZ, was a new record for March. Windy conditions prevailed across the central and eastern U.S. Winds gusted to 60 mph at Minneapolis MN, and reached 120 mph atop Rendezvous Peak WY. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 25, 1989 
A Pacific storm brought wet weather to much of the western third of the country, with heavy snow in some of the higher elevations. La Porte CA was drenched with 3.56 inches of rain in 24 hours. Up to 24 inches of snow blanketed the Sierra Nevada Range. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 25, 1990 
Temperatures dipped below zero in the Northern Rocky Mountain Region. Hardin MT was the cold spot in the nation with a morning low of 10 degrees below zero. Freezing drizzle was reported in the Southern Plains Region, with afternoon highs only in the 30s from the Southern High Plains to Missouri and Arkansas. (The National Weather Summary)

    • 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...

    • Flood Warning issued April 24 at 10:52AM EDT until April 25 at 12:40PM EDT by NWS View the full article
    • 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.
