NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
Rain spread from the Southeast up the Eastern Seaboard to the coast 
of the mid-Atlantic yesterday with the heaviest rain focusing on an 
area from the coast of South Carolina to the east coast of Florida. 
Fort Johnson, located just a few miles south of Charleston, South 
Carolina, received some of the most rain yesterday, totaling 4.77 
inches. The heavy rain also led to flooding, closing roads around 
Palm Coast, Florida. It was a warm day over the rest of the East 
where little to no rain fell with Syracuse, New York, hitting the 
80-degree mark for the third day in a row.
It was a warm and dry day from the southern Plains to the lower 
Midwest with highs climbing into the 80s, above normal for late 
September. A cold front moving into the Great Lakes delivered cooler, 
more fall-like weather from northern Wisconsin across the northern 
Plains as well as some showers to Wisconsin and northern Michigan.
Showers and some severe thunderstorms developed over the Front Range 
of the Rockies during the afternoon, stretching from northeastern New 
Mexico into western Nebraska. Storms in this area produced hail as 
large as golf balls and wind gusts that gusted past 75 mph. These 
powerful winds blew over hundreds of trees in a forest in Archuleta 
County, Colorado, and destroyed tents at the Rio Grand Arts and 
Crafts Festival near Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fortunately, no one was 
injured from these strong winds. Showers and some high-elevation snow 
were seen over the northern and central Rockies as well as the 
Northwest with dry conditions over the rest of the West.
SPECIAL WEATHER                    
Anniversary of Record Cold, Snow on the Central Plains
Today marks the anniversary of when the central Plains endured a 
record chilly and snowy day in 1985. Goodland, Kansas, was one of 
several places that set a September record-low temperature on this 
date dropping to 19 F, well below the typical low of 44 F. This date 
was also the third straight day that Goodland set a daily record low. 
The arctic air set the stage for snow to fall across Nebraska as 3.8 
inches whitened Grand Island. That broke the city's record for the 
earliest occurrence of measurable snow.
