the winter of 1898-99...

Recommended Posts

just finished a summery of the winter of 1898-99...

the winter of 1898-99 was one of those winters that had some historic weeks...it is known for the largest arctic outbreak to hit the country and a blizzard that gave snow from Florida to Maine...it started the last week in November 1898 with three snowstorms adding up to 19"...one famous storm called the Portland Storm named after a ship that sank off the NE coast...10" of snow and sleet fell in NYC which is still the biggest November snowfall on record...there was a month lull in the action until New years day when 4" of snow fell...between January 31st and February 13th 26.3" of snow fell including the famous blizzard that climaxed one of the coldest periods in NYC ever...a big thaw set in after that...the winter was basically over after the thaw except for a 3" snowfall on March 7th and some light falls later in the month...I believe 1898-99 was an el nino winter ...
