VETERAN'S DAY

 

 

 

ARMISTICE DAY...NOVEMBER 11...WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1926 TO COMMEMORATE THE SIGNING IN 1918 OF THE ARMISTICE ENDING WWI.  ON JUNE 1, 1954, THE NAME WAS CHANGED TO VETERAN'S DAY TO HONOR ALL MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE SERVED AMERICA IN ITS ARMED FORCES.

 

THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED IN ROCHESTER ON VETERAN'S DAY WAS IN 1964 WHEN A HIGH OF 70 DEGREES WAS REACHED.  THE LOWEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED WAS 20 DEGREES IN 1957.  NORMALLY, THE HIGH TEMPERATURE AVERAGES AROUND 48 DEGREES WHILE THE LOW AVERAGES NEAR 34 DEGREES.

 

THERE IS ROUGHLY A 79 PERCENT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION OF A TRACE OR MORE.

 

STEADY RAIN IN 1983 DROPPED .66 INCHES ON BUFFALO...THE MOST PRECIPITATION EVER RECORDED ON A VETERAN'S DAY.  THE MOST SNOW THAT FELL ON VETERAN'S DAY OCCURRED IN 1991 WHEN 5.3 INCHES WAS RECORDED.

 

 

IN 1990, A THUNDERSTORM BLEW OVER THE RICHESTER AREA WITH 5-SEC WIND SPEEDS AT 47MPH.  THIS CAUSED BLOWING SNOW AND LOW VISIBILITY.  ALSO ON THIS DAY THERE WAS 3.2 INCHES OF SNOW DROPPED IN THE ROCHESTER AREA.
