"Welcome to December"

Even though Hurricane Season 2012 has officially ended, a broad area of low pressure over the central Atlantic has become better organized. Historical weather events for the end of November and the first of December include extremely cold weather on November 29, 1831, that led to the closing of New York's Erie Canal through December. On December 1, 1969, an island was submerged from a stalled low pressure system in the Hawaiian Islands near the French Frigate Shoals. Three feet of water covered the 300 foot-wide Tern Island causing the evacuation of the Coast Guard station. As noted in a previous column, in Claiborne Parish on December 3, 1962, tennis ball sized hail covered the ground and chipped sidewalks in Goodwin as 40 mph winds tore off roofs.
