Today in Weather History
for March 26 


March 26, 1913 
The Ohio River Basin flood reached a peak. Ten inch rains over a wide area of the Ohio River Basin inundated cities in Ohio, drowning 467 persons, and causing 147 million dollars damage. The Miami River at Dayton reached a level eight feet higher than ever before. The flood, caused by warm weather and heavy rains, was the second mostly deadly of record for the nation. (David Ludlum) 

March 26, 1954 
The temperature at Allaket, AK, plunged to 69 degrees below zero. (The Weather Channel) 

March 26, 1971 
Parts of northern and central Georgia experienced their worst snow and ice storm since 1935. Two day power outages ruined two million eggs at poultry hatches. Two persons were killed when a tree landed on their car. (25th-26th) (The Weather Channel) 

March 26, 1987 
A cold front crossing the Plateau Region produced high winds in Utah causing some property damage. Winds gusted to 51 mph at Salt Lake City. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 26, 1988 
Twenty cities in the southwestern U.S. reported new record high temperatures for the date. Afternoon highs of 73 degrees at Flagstaff AZ, 90 degrees at Sacramento CA, 95 degrees at Santa Maria CA, 95 degrees at Los Angeles CA, 99 degrees at Tucson AZ, and 100 degrees at Phoenix AZ set records for March. (The National Weather Summary) 

March 26, 1989 
The Easter Bunny brought record warm temperatures to the central U.S. while such records were still welcome. A dozen cities reported record warm readings, including Dodge City KS with an afternoon high of 88 degrees. Strong southerly winds gusted to 51 mph at Dodge City, and reached 55 mph at Salina KS. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) 

March 26, 1990 
Fair weather prevailed across the nation for the second day in a row. Freezing temperatures were reported in the Middle Atlantic Coast Region in the wake of an early spring snowstorm. Afternoon highs were again in the 70's and 80's in the southeastern U.S., and for the ninth day in a row, temperatures in the southwestern U.S. reached the 90's. (The National Weather Summary) 

March 26, 1999
A deep cold core upper low moving slowly east across the Southern Appalachians (Habersham, Rabun and Stephens Counties) brought a round of light snow, accompanied by heavier bursts of sleet and hail as thunderstorms developed. Accumulations ranged between 1 and 3 inches. (NWS Atlanta)

    • MD 0435 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND EAST TEXAS Mesoscale Discussion 0435 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0332 PM CDT Wed Apr 24 2019 Areas affected...portions of central and east Texas Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible Valid 242032Z - 242130Z Probability of Watch Issuance...60 percent SUMMARY...Ongoing MCS over central Texas will eventually enter an environment favorable for surface-based storms, with all severe modes possible. A WW is being considered for areas downstream. DISCUSSION...An ongoing strong to severe MCS continues from near AUS to near SAT currently. These storms likely remain slightly elevated atop a cool surface later left behind from early morning convection. Recent observations suggest that the eastern edge of this cool layer was eroding due to advection and surface warming, with upper 60s to low 70s F dewpoints now located roughly 50-75 miles downstream of the ongoing MCS. As these storms migrate eastward, they will gradually become surface-based, with the ongoing threat shifting toward damaging winds and perhaps a couple tornadoes. As such, a Tornado Watch is being considered for areas downstream. ..Cook/Thompson.. 04/24/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...LCH...SHV...HGX...FWD...EWX...

    • MD 0434 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY FOR WESTERN KENTUCKY...FAR SOUTHEASTERN MISSOURI...SOUTHERN ILLINOIS...AND FAR SOUTHWESTERN INDIANA Mesoscale Discussion 0434 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0251 PM CDT Wed Apr 24 2019 Areas affected...western Kentucky...far southeastern Missouri...southern Illinois...and far southwestern Indiana Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 241951Z - 242045Z Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent SUMMARY...Ongoing convection may produce isolated instances of wind damage. A WW issuance is not anticipated due to the isolated nature of the threat. DISCUSSION...Surface heating, weakly confluent warm-sector low-level flow, and convergence along synoptic surface boundaries has fostered gradual deepening of convection across southeastern Missouri and southern Illinois. These storms are in a moderately unstable environment, with around 1500 J/kg MUCAPE. Shear is relatively weak, however, with 30-35 kt mid-level flow atop marginal low-level flow resulting in only 30 knots of effective deep shear. This suggest that storms should remain loosely organized, with the isolated severe threat maximized near linear, outflow-dominant bands that can evolve. The isolated nature of the threat precludes any WW issuance at this time, though storms should propagate downstream along the Lower Ohio Valley through sunset. ..Cook.. 04/24/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • 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...
