...On this date in weather history...

In 1989...January was a real Gem for Alaska as low pressure centered over north-central Alaska continued to funnel a siberian air mass into the last Frontier. The horrific cold sent temperatures tumbling into a thermal marianas trench in The Heart of the state as the small town of Tanana plunged to a spine tingling 76 below zero...McGrath to 74 below...and Galena to 68 below. In fact...Tanana would remain colder than 40 below from January 15th through the 31st...a 17 day span! Fairbanks was also frighteningly frigid...remaining at or colder than 30 below zero for an incredible 13 consecutive days from the 18th to the 30th!


In 1772...the Washington and Jefferson snowstorm occurred. George Washington reported around 3 feet of snow in Mount Vernon while Thomas Jefferson reported similar accumulations in Monticello.
