    2018 Short to Medium Range Severe Thread

    The Elie F5 tornado did its most intense damage when it was like 40 yards wide. It was roping out basically. Did the Alonsa tornado do that as well when it did its most intense damage? Elie got up to 330 yards wide and the Alonsa tornado got up to a half-mile wide.

    2018 Short to Medium Range Severe Thread

    The Alonsa, Manitoba tornado has been rated as an EF4. Its appearance reminds me of the Elie, Manitoba F5 tornado but the Alonsa tornado was wider than the Elie tornado.

    Highest heat index by state

    Goehner, Nebraska July 22, 2017 Heat Index 123F. http://newsroom.unl.edu/announce/snr/7583/43184
  4.    Did you say that on January 10, 1982 there was an NFL game that had a temp of -9F with a wind chill of -37F(-59F old scale)? I just recently read in a newspaper from Hutchinson, Kansas published on January 11, 1982 that wind chills in the northeastern part of the state had wind chills as low as 80 degrees below zero. It comes out to be about 54 degrees below zero on the new scale. Christmas Eve 1983 was also cold with wind chills of 70 to 80 degrees below zero(-52F new scale) and December 22-23, 1989 had temperatures as low as -30F and wind chills of minus 60 to minus 70 on the old scale. It works out to be about -53F to -57F on the new scale. Kansas record keeping is really bad and it is also very rural. The only place I can find any data is through old 1980s newspapers with the exception of the Oketo, Kansas -78F(-52F new scale) on Christmas Eve 1983. January 20-21, 1985 I really couldn't find anything but I think Central, Kansas may have had wind chills of -50F in some rural areas.

    Coldest wind chill by state

    Heilig/Scottsbluff, Nebraska December 22, 1989 -41F winds 9 mph wind chill -65F. https://www.wunderground.com/history/daily/us/ne/scottsbluff/KBFF/date/1989-12-22 http://www.intellicast.com/Local/History.aspx?month=12 That is insane if it is true. Kansas and Nebraska really got it in the December of 1989 arctic outbreak. Minus 30s in Northern,Kansas and -40s in Northern, Nebraska. The coldest temperature in Kansas was -34F at Atwood and the coldest temperature in Nebraska was -47F at Oshkosh. Both occurred on December 22, 1989.

    July 19-20 Severe Weather

    I don't think there has been any violent tornadoes(EF4-EF5) this year.
  7.    You can find a lot of information about past wind chills in newspapers from the 1980s. Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio had wind chills of -60F(-85F old scale) on January 20-21, 1985. Kansas had wind chills of -50F to -55F(-80F old scale) on January 10, 1982 and December 24, 1983(Oketo reading). Central Kansas had wind chills around -50F to -51F(-70F to -75F old scale) on January 10, 1982 in some areas. Additionally many parts of Northern, Kansas likely had temperatures of -25F to -30F with wind chills of -60F to -70F(-52F to -55F). There may have been colder wind chills in 1989 than the Oketo reading but it would be best to keep with the -52F.

    Coldest wind chill by state

    I read through some old newspapers from January 20-21, 1985 and wind chill factors in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio were as low as -85F on the old scale or around -60F on the new scale. Sorry about if the newspaper articles you may have to sign up to look at them and cancel within the first week or 30 days depending on the site.

    To Mr. Hoosier, If this article is correct Muncie had a temp of -26F and a wind of 28 mph at 8 am producing a wind chill of -60F(-85F old scale). https://kansashistoricalsociety.newspapers.com/image/253132969/?terms=Wind+chills++Indiana https://www.wunderground.com/history/daily/us/in/muncie/KMIE/date/1985-1-20 Hourly temperatures are shown and at 2 pm it has a temp of -18F which is consistent with the temp on wunderground. Chippewa Valley Regional, Wisconsin January 10, 1982 -28F winds 21 mph wind chill -59F(-80F old scale). https://www.wunderground.com/history/daily/us/wi/eau-claire/KEAU/date/1982-1-10 Appleton, Wisconsin January 10, 1982 unknown temp winds 58 mph. According to newspapers temperatures were in the -20F to -25F range at that time. Wind chills on the old scale were -100F in some parts of Marathon County, Wisconsin. https://kansashistoricalsociety.newspapers.com/image/248083264/?terms=Wind%2Bchills%2BWisconsin Beulah, North Dakota reported a wind chill of -109F on the old scale January 10, 1982. https://kansashistoricalsociety.newspapers.com/image/192806510/?terms=Wind%2Bchills%2BWisconsin Northern Kansas likely had wind chills in the low minus 50s from what I have read in newspapers. It was December 22-23, 1989. I am not going to say a record but it was truly very cold that time in Kansas. I was 9 and it was my first memory of extreme arctic cold. The wind chill was probably around -45F the morning of December 22, 1989 where I lived in Central Kansas. Kirksville, Missouri January 10, 1982 Temp -21 winds 22 mph wind chill -51F(-71F old scale).https://www.wunderground.com/history/daily/us/mo/kirksville/KIRK/date/1982-1-10

    Wow!!!!!!! I wonder what that would feel like on your exposed skin. It would take only seconds to frostbite. You probably would also have to wear a lung piece to breathe.

    Nice!!! Thank You very much!!! Here are a few more. Furnace Creek, California 134F July 10, 1913 Lake Havasu City, Arizona 128F June 29, 1994 Adams, Arkansas Temp 111F humidity 26% heat index 120F August 3, 2011 https://www.wunderground.com/history/daily/us/ar/little-rock/KLIT/date/2011-8-3 I need to look more into the heat waves in July and August of 2011 and 2012. I lived back in Emporia, Kansas temporarily and on August 3, 2011 the high was like 112F or 113F. It was baking.

    Also is there any other days in history besides January 20 and 21 1985 where Ohio and Indiana had wind chills of -50F or colder. Is there any other days that you may suspect?

    Coldest wind chill by state

    Yeah, for sure, but I think the Watertown, Iowa -64F wind chill on December 24, 1983 and the Canton/Akron, Ohio -56F wind chill are even more impressive. I also read a news article regarding the Oketo/Marysville -52F on December 24, 1983 and it supposedly got so cold even some ducks drank water and froze to death and hens froze solid on their perch. I can't find that article even though I just read it the other day. Also Williston had a -71F according to that metorologist in that news article. Are new articles evidence for wind chills. You took the word of an observer on regards to the Mount Washington -107F in 2004.
