The Armistice Day Storm of 1940 with National Weather Service Forecaster Joe Phillips
November 11, 1940, Armistice Day (or Veteran’s Day), began with blue skies and temperatures in the 40s and 50s, but a rapidly deepening low-pressure system moved into the Upper Great Lakes. Within 24 hours, the system would rank among the most infamous and disastrous blizzards in U.S. history with over 150 deaths. NWS’s Joe Phillips discusses the storm and how it changed forecasting procedures.
