This Day In Weather History
Weather History for Saturday, November 1st, 2014:
In 1880, weather observations were taken this morning from 24 stations in the U.S. by the Army Signal Corps. The information was telegraphed to Washington D.C. so a national map could be drawn. This was the first time that large scale observations were taken simultaneously and plotted on a map. In 2009, record October snowfalls buried much of Nebraska and Wyoming, with North Platte measuring 30.3 inches while Cheyenne received 28 inches.
