#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
"The post-Tambora period could be more accurately called
'the years without' or 'the years without, for some.' ...Pulling apart the perceived simplicity of this moment can be a reminder that climate has never meant a single weather experienced in all places by all people."

#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
