Today in Weather History

Good evening to you! Let’s celebrate the upcoming weekend with some weather history!

On this day, in 1980, the Great Plains fell victim to severe thunderstorms that produced tornadoes, specifically in the central region of Arkansas. Of the various tornadoes, one in particular was rated an F-3 on the Fujita Scale, resulting in $2.5 million of damage. Areas mostly impacted were St. Louis and St. Charles. In general, these storms produced damaging winds and even baseball size hail. Isn’t that crazy?

Have a wonderful weekend!
