Today in Weather History

Good morning to you! How has your week been so far? We hope wonderful!

On this day, in 1972, the state of Minnesota fell victim to a blizzard, to which is a combination of high winds and snowfall. Winds of 30 to 50 miles per hour swept the state, with peak gusts up to 90 miles per hour, and surfaces were buried in two to six inches of snow accumulations. These conditions led to times of absolute zero visibility, posing a threat to travel. As a result, standstill traffic and school cancellations plagued the state. In comparison to south-central Kentucky, our last blizzard took place in 1994!

Have a great weekend!
