Record Lows - 2005

Record low temperatures in the United States

  I'm including extreme rainfall here because that's     
 what causes ice ages ... excess precipitation. If        
 you want to know how much snow would fall          
 if a rainstorm should change to snow, just add a     
 zero. (One inch of rain - add a zero - will turn            
                   to 10 inches of snow.) Rainfall has increased so      
 dramatically that I'm only including accumulations  
 of two inches or more.

Dec 17 Vicious Ice Storm - Freezing rain coated parts of the southern United States with up to 3/4 of an inch (19 mm) of ice on Thursday, leaving more than 700,000 homes and businesses without power.

In Charlotte, North Carolina, one man was killed when a 100-year-old tree collapsed into his front room under the weight of the ice. In Atlanta, Georgia, traffic backed up for miles after accidents forced the closure of several interstate highways.

Snowier winters in Minnesota - 14 Dec 05 - Despite what your grandparents might 
say about old-time winters, average snowfall records show modern Minnesota winters 
are actually snowier than those of yore.

Seasonal snowfall on average has increased from less than 40 inches in the 1890s to more than 55 inches in the Twin Cities. Increases have been even more pronounced in west-central Minnesota , according to Mark Seeley, University of Minnesota extension climatologist and meteorologist. http://www.in-forum.com/ap/index.cfm?page=view&id=D8EFT8H00

Boston , Hartford , Providence , and Worcester recorded record amounts of snow for the date. Logan measured 8.6 inches of snow; Boston Common, 7.5; and Worcester , 12.8 inches.

The fast-moving storm dropped more than a foot of snow in some places, with Northern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire hardest hit. Snow in those areas fell at a rate of 5 inches per hour at some points. Littleton , Massachusetts , recorded more than 15 inches of snowfall, while Bennington , NH. , got nearly 18 inches. Cambridge reported 8 inches and Winthrop had recorded 5 inches as of late yesterday afternoon.

Oct 25 One-fourth of a year’s snowfall in 12 days 
Another record shattered! “NEVER has such a complete snow pack built 
so quickly or so early on Mount Washington,” says Mt. Washington website.
     

“Absolutely incredible," the website says. " The 24 hour snowfall record for 
October, which stood for 36 years, shattered a mere 8 days ago, was broken 
again this morning. The summit picked up 27.5 inches of snow again with this 
latest storm, 25.7 of it in 24 hours, breaking the old record of 25.5 inches set 
on October 17th. We've had 72 inches of snow now in the last 12 days, 
nearly 25 % of a normal year's total!!!

“More amazingly, the infamous record for total monthly precipitation set 
in February of 1969 at 25.56 inches has also been eclipsed, as we sit at 
27.85 inches of combined rain and melted snow now for the month of October.

“. . . I can't find the words to describe the amount of snow on the summit 
anymore. I've used them all on the past storms earlier this month, and now
they seem horribly insufficient. October is usually a month of transition, of 
freezes and thaws, and only averages a mere foot of snow. NEVER has 
such a complete snow pack built so quickly or so early on Mount Washington .
The forest service has even issued an avalanche bulletin on the 5 scale today!”

Early Nor’easter brings winter to the Northeast
An early nor’easter pounded beaches with 20-foot waves,
knocked out power to thousands of people, and brought a taste of winter
to the Northeast. Some areas got their first snowfall of the season.

“Some lower elevations of New Hampshire got their first slushy, mushy,
snowfall of the season, as did northwest New Jersey . The weather service
 issued a winter storm watch for Massachusetts ’ Berkshires, and snow also
was likely in the mountains of Maine .

“Atop New Hampshire ’s Mount Washington , the Northeast’s tallest peak
at 6,288 feet, meteorologists at the Mount Washington Observatory measured
100 mph wind and near-blizzard conditions in fog and blowing snow.

“The storm system came on top of record snowfall earlier in the month, when
Mount Washington got 34 inches of snow in one weekend.

Mount Washington beats two snow records  - Mount Washington, NH  
received 34 inches of snow over the weekend, beating the record for the 
most snowfall from a single October storm. It also beat the record for the 
most snow in one day in October.

"Basically, we've had white-out conditions for the last three days," weather 
observer David Balfrey said. It looks like January or February, with 12-foot 
drifts and tons of ice that has to be chipped off their instruments. 

Balfrey and his fellow observers are confident they will beat the record for 
October snowfall. They are only 5 1/2 inches short of the record of 39.8 inches 
set in 2000 and more snow is on the way. "We are pretty sure we'll get another 
four or five inches before the end of month," he said.

Oct 5 Earliest major snowstorm in North Dakota in 130 years - 5 October 2005 – With up to two feet of snow and blizzard conditions, one of the earliest major snow storms to hit North Dakota in 130 years has shut down highways, closed schools, downed trees and knocked out power to thousands. National Guard soldiers were called out to rescue stranded motorists in the southwestern part of the state.

"It is, on our records, probably one of the earliest ones, as far as our recorded history goes, in 126, 130 years," said Sam Walker, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Bismarck .

As much as 11 inches of snow fell in southeastern Montana . Billings received 10.8 inches of snow, almost one inch over the old record of 9.9 inches, said meteorologist Tom Humphrey.

Snowbird Ski Resort in Utah received its first snow of the year, with more on the way.

Jun 24 Ski Utah on the 4th of July! – There aren't many places where you can go skiing on the 4th of July, but Utah is one of them thanks to record snowfall. The most recent storm – on June 12 - dumped a half-foot of snow on Snowbird.

Typically, the ski season ends by mid-to-late April, but the Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort announced yesterday that it will remain open weekends until Independence Day. That has happened only one other time.

Snowbird also had its earliest opening ever, on November 5th, making this the longest ski season in Utah history.  During the season, Snowbird received a grand total of 633 inches--52 feet--more than 5 stories of snow.

804 inches of snow in Kirkwood, California! 

Hi Robert
As I'm typing this there are only 9 days left of the 2005 Season at 
Kirkwood, California, and the base on the upper Mountain still exceeds 
200 inches. 

Yet outside it's snowing, and our total snowfall since the start of the 
season in October is 793 inches, and the latest forecasts suggest 
we'll get enough during Saturday and Sunday to see us through the 
unbelievable magic number of 800inches of snowfall in one winter!!

 … oh and it's not done yet! Another storm is rolling in and another 
couple of feet of snow is likely by the weekend. Walking back after a 
meal at the Kirkwood Inn last night I was amazed to see 20-feet plus 
banks of snow still at the side of Kirkwood Meadows Drive.

Best regards
Robert Worrall

Ten times normal rainfall in Texas - “ Texas just experienced its wettest November on record, and the records go back to 1895. Major cities throughout the state accumulated November rainfall totals that ranged from three to nearly ten times normal amounts. Austin recorded 350mm rain, which is 526% of normal.”

”June 2004 was also the wettest June on record in Texas . Now it looks as though 2004 may turn out to be the state’s wettest year on record.

”These record rainfall totals have been achieved without the aid of tropical storms or hurricanes.”
