#OTD 5 years ago, Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) made landfall in Eastern Samar, #Philippines. The storm was damaging causing over PhP5.09 billion (US$114 million). This shows that even if it's late in the season, strong storms can still form in the West Pacific. #wxhistory

84 years ago #OTD, it was not warm in Interior Alaska. Fairbanks would up with a low of -59F (-50.6C) during this cold snap, and the temperature stayed in the -50s from the evening on Dec 5 until late morning on Dec 8th. #akwx #cold @Climatologist49 @weather_history @DermotMCole

85 years ago #OTD, Fairbanks hit 58F (14.4C) during the greatest "pineapple express" on record. This was the 2nd of 5 straight days with highs in the 50s; the meager snowpack completely melted away in the warm temps & wind. #akwx @Climatologist49 @weather_history @DermotMCole

Dec 5-9, 1952: A dense layer of smog settled over London and became so thick by Dec. 7 that virtually no sunlight was seen. Conservative estimates place the death toll at 4,000, with some estimating the smog killed as many as 12,000 people. #wxhistory

OTD in 1975: An EF-3 December tornado heavily damages parts of northeastern Tulsa. It was also the 1st tornado I’d ever witnessed & proved that no month is immune from tornadoes: https://t.co/73eGjhvVVX https://t.co/md1dkJAJOo #tulsa #tornado #okwx

#OnThisDay in 2010, much was NC was either seeing #snow or was going to sometime during the next 12-18 hours.

It was mostly a light event for ENC, but it made for a beautiful #Christmas scene and at our former home in Martin County, NC.

This day in 1978 a tornado outbreak hit Arkansas during the overnight hours. In a 5-hour period from 2-7 AM, 10 tornadoes caused damage in an 11-county area. This was the same system that produced killer tornadoes in NW LA earlier that night. cc: @NWSShreveport

#OTD in 1971, a low-pressure system passed to the south of the region. With cold air in place, the storm produced snow in the Upstate (14" in Landrum), and freezing rain in the Midlands. Along the coast, high winds from the storm led to considerable beach erosion. #scwxhistory
