Today in Weather History

Good morning to you, fellow reader!

On this day, in 1950, a low pressure system propagated over eastern Illinois, allowing for the rare event of a tornado-producing storm system in the month of December. The atmospheric set-up can be seen in the photo below. Illinois saw two tornadoes while Arkansas saw one tornado. Missouri, on the other hand, fell victim to a significant hail storm.

That’s all for today! If you’re a student, good luck on finals next week! If not, we hope you still have a good week!
