Title
Blizzard of 1899
Description
The Great Blizzard of 1899 was an unprecedented winter weather event that affected the southern United States. The event started out on February 11 as a severe cold wave in which every part of the East Coast from Georgia to Maine received sub-zero Fahrenheit temperatures. What made it historic was both the severity of winter weather and the extent of the U.S. it affected, especially in the South. North of the Mid-Atlantic region, the storm weakened somewhat, but it was still a very powerful blizzard. New York's Central Park recorded 16 inches (41 cm), which at the time was its third-biggest snowfall, but many surrounding areas recorded 2-3 feet (60 to 90 cm), as did most of New England.
