Was that a derecho?  Do you remember the extreme October event in the late 80s?  I forgot what year it was- either 87 or 89?

 

November 89 had the tornado outbreak in like half the country

Yeah and I think in the middle of it there was a tornado that killed like 10 kids in a school cafeteria in Westchester

 

A week later the area received 4-8" of snow on Thanksgiving. Snow began the night before and ended Thanksgiving morning with NYC recording 4.7" of snowfall. A Crazy November, of course the winter of 89-90 was fairly snowless if I remember correctly.

That was the craziest fall- haven't seen one like it since.  Basically went from this historic severe weather outbreak to like a week straight of high winds, with all the leaves down before Thanksgiving, to this dry powdery snowfall that stuck to the roads immediately.  And the NYC measurement of 4.7 only tells part of the story, south and east of the city there was double that much snow, with 6" here in western LI and 10" out on the east end and also down in central and southern NJ including ACY.  Then we went into the deep freeze for all of December, with small 1-2" clippers all month, but it was so damn cold that what little snow fell hung around all month and our waterways froze over.  There was only a small thaw in the middle of the month that came from a blown forecast of 6-8 inches of snow but the secondary formed too close to the coast and instead of thundersnow we got thunder rain lol.  Then record warmth with a 40 degree avg temp for Jan and Feb combined and then historic mid and upper 80s and Bermuda shorts by Mid March lol- no need to go anywhere for spring break that year!  And that busted snowfall forecast was the diametric opposite of the blown call the previous February when we were also supposed to get 6-8 inches of snow but got 6-8 inches of virga instead as the snow fell to our south, up to 20 inches near ACY.  Ah, those were the days.....

I was in high school when that happened, I was more depressed that day than any other day during the 80s.

 

I was in high school as well, the weather that day is burned in my head forever. One of my teachers lost his son in Coldenham.
