On this Day in Weather History...
In 1987, severe thunderstorms evolving into a derecho unleashed destructive winds from Minnesota to Indiana. Gusts roared at 104 mph in Janesville, Wisconsin that flipped over 2 aircraft and blew a third aircraft 300 feet down the runway. && In 2009, a horrific, historic heat wave that hit the Pacific Northwest like a 100 foot rogue wave reached a peak. Portland melted in 100 plus degree heat for 3 straight days with highs of 103 degrees on the 27th and 106 on the 28th and 29th. All were record highs for the dates in question. Seattle was turned into a sauna when the mercury soared to an all time high of 103 degrees. It was only the second time the Emerald City had reached 100 degrees. The first, an even 100 degrees, occurred on July 20th, 1994. Since most homes did not have air conditioning, such heat certainly gave new meaning to "Sleepless in Seattle".
