The historic Winter Storm tearing through the Northwestern U.S. has taken many names — one of the first is the city of Spokane, located in Washington state.
At least four all-time cold records were busted over the weekend in Spokane, according to the city’s National Weather Service, in books dating back 138 years:
- A new record snow total of 1.9 inches (4.8 cm) was set at Spokane National Airport on Sept 28, making it the first measurable snow observed on this date since records began in 1881. That 1.9 inches also set a new all-time monthly snowfall record, busting the 1.4 inches (3.6 cm) set during a one day snow event in 1926 (solar minimum of cycle 15).
- The next day, on Sept 29, another new daily record snow total of 3.4 inches (8.6 cm) was set at Spokane’s Airport (again the first ever measurable snow for the date) which blew-away the monthly snowfall record of 1.9 inches set just 24hrs earlier.
- And Saturday’s high temperature of 45F (7.2C) is now Spokane’s coldest high temp for the date ever recorded, comfortably busting the 48F (8.9C) set in 1881 (solar min of cycle 11).
In addition, the high temp of 47F (8.3C) at nearby Wentachee Airport, WA broke the record for the lowest max for the date, smashing the old record of 53F (11.7C) set back in 1977 (solar min of cycle 20).
And lastly, for now at least, the high of 49F (9.4C) registered in Ephrata, WA crushed the town’s previous lowest daily max for Sept 28 of 54F (12.2C) set, again, back in 1977 (solar min of cycle 20).
Many more cold records will tumble as the dust –or snow– settles.
Stay tuned for updates.
The cold times are returning, in line with historically low solar activity:
