After researching historical weather and disaster events for the past several years, I found it tiresome looking and remembering credible information. The goal of this blog is to provide useful links in an easy to use format. Please feel free to comment if you have any questions, suggestions, or links to add. Thanks!
This Date in Weather/Climate History:
The Southeast Regional Climate Center publishes a daily weather history story on Facebook and Twiter. They post one event per day during the morning hours(~7 am central time), with an occasional post in the afternoon. Click HERE for their webpage.
Several National Weather Service Forecast Offices have weather history and significant events on their webpage. The National Weather Service Office in Aberdeen, South Dakota has an excellent, daily weather history archive page that contains local and regional weather events, as well as global events from 1500’s to the present day. Click HERE for their archive page.
Another useful site is the Weather Doctor by Keith C Heidorn, Ph.D. This page contains a wealth of information about daily events for Canada, the United States, and the world. Unfortunately, the webpage has not been updated since November 2013. The easiest way to change from one month to the next is by changing the URL address. January noted in yellow as jan, can easily be modified to September by simply typing sep.htm
The website, http://www.glenallenweather.com/ also has daily weather history archive page. While this site contains excellent information with references, some of the events are listed on a wrong day.
U.S. Daily Weather Maps:
The NOAA Central Library has daily weather maps for the United States from January 1st, 1871 to the present day. These maps can be found by clicking HERE.
National High and Low Temperature by Day:
The Weather Prediction Center issues a daily National High and Low Temperature for the contiguous US. The archive begins on November 22, 2011.
