On this date in 1911, what is now known as the "Great Blue Norther of 1911" brought an unbelievable change in the weather to much of the central U.S. including #OKwx and #ARwx. Several locations saw record highs in the afternoon, then reached record lows by midnight.

This current arctic #cold front will be impressive, but it can't hold a candle to the 11/11/1911 front, which was one of the strongest fronts on record in the U.S., with bizarre consequences, as @chrisdolcewx details: https://t.co/IJurKlZQGE

🌀10 Years Ago - Hurricane #Ida made landfall twice in our area: first on Dauphin Island & a second time near Bon Secour, AL on November 10th back in 2009. Ida is the 2nd latest hurricane to develop & make landfall along the northern Gulf Coast.
