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

In 1987...a winter storm moving from the central rockies to the northern plains...produced up to one foot of snow in the Colorado rockies. Boulder measured a gust at exactly 99 mph. The high winds caused $5.6 million damage in Colorado. In 1963...the low temperature at Cynthiana Kentucky fell to 34 below zero. This equaled the state record established just 4 days earlier in Bonnieville.
