NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
-It was a dry, chilly day across the East Wednesday in the wake of a 
cold front the moved through Tuesday. Temperatures ran 10 to 20 
degrees below normal across the region with new record lows set in 
Syracuse and Buffalo, N.Y.; Erie, Pa.; Clarksville, Tenn.; 
Greenville, S.C.; Montgomery, Ala.; and Pensacola, Fla. This chill 
also gripped much of the Great Lakes and northern Plains as low 
pressure delivered snow from the Dakotas to the Upper Peninsula of 
Michigan. The heaviest snow fell over east-central Minnesota, just 
north and east of the city of Minneapolis. Snow totals in this area 
topped 1 foot, covering roads in snow and causing the Minnesota Twins 
to postpone their game originally scheduled for Wednesday evening.
-The balance of the country remained dry with the exception of some 
rain showers over Washington and snow showers over the Rockies. Areas 
of the West that stayed dry had temperatures above normal, but they 
did not set any record highs.      
SPECIAL WEATHER                    
Remembering Northeast Snowstorm on 1821
-Today marks the anniversary of when a snowstorm impacted the 
Northeast, delivering heavy snow to parts of the region. Only 1 inch 
of snow fell at the nation's capital, but enough snow fell in New 
York City for sleighs to be out in the city. Boston received a foot 
of snow with Warchester, Mass., recording 16 inches. Much of this 
snow melted within days of falling.
