Several storms impacted North Carolina weather on this date including a storm off the coast of North Carolina in 1987 that produced heavy rain flooding creeks in the foothills and the Piedmont area, before moving out to sea. The low pressure system also produced wind gusts to 50 mph in Virginia. In 1989 thunderstorms developing along a stationary front produced severe weather from North Carolina to Indiana and Ohio, with more than 70 reports of large hail and damaging winds. A strong (F-2) tornado hit Xenia, Ohio injuring 16 persons and causing more than a million dollars damage. Back in 1920 a severe cold snap hit much of the Southeast, including North Carolina. Atlanta, Georgia received 1.5 inches of snow, and experienced their latest freeze of record with a morning low of 32 degrees. The high of just 39 degrees was only their second daily high colder than 40 degrees in April.
