... On this date in weather history...

In 1987, severe thunderstorms broke out from Utah to
North Dakota. In Teton County Wyoming, around 45 miles
northeast of Jackson, a huge F4 tornado cut across the
Teton Wilderness. Possessing a track 24 miles long and
reportedly nearly one and a half miles wide, the tornado
leveled around 15,000 trees. Occurring at an elevation
of around 10,000 feet, it was the highest elevation of an
F4 tornado on record. Most of the trees that were
leveled were mature Lodgepole pines between 80 and 100
feet tall. Parts of North Dakota were raked by 12
tornadoes, baseball sized hail, and destructive winds.
The high winds toppled a pair of 80 foot radio towers
near Blanchard. In 1911, the low temperature plunged to
10 degrees in Painter Wyoming.This set the all time
record low for July in the Continental United States.


In 1983, the world's coldest temperature, a wondrous 128
degrees below zero, was measured at vostok, Antarctica.
