On this Day in Weather History...
In 1979, an extremely violent 40 minute severe thunderstorm clobbered Fort Collins, Colorado with baseball to grapefruit sized hail. Around 2,000 homes and 2,500 vehicles were severely damaged. Of the 25 people injured, most were due to head injuries. The most tragic of all was that of a 3 month old infant who later died. The monetary losses were not reported. && In 1988, the furnace was turned up full blast across the North and Northeast U.S. where 12 cities set record high temperatures for the date. Baltimore reached a blistering 103 degrees which marked the 8th time the city had been torched by 100 degree plus heat; a July record. The 101 degree high at Billings, Montana marked the 17th day that Billings had baked in 100 degree plus heat which had set the annual record for Montana's largest city.
