... On this date in weather history...

In 1964, a strong F4 tornado struck extreme western
Russell County. Starting 4 miles north northeast of
Gorham and moving north, the tornado possessed a track 9
miles long and around 200 yards wide. The tornado
destroyed one farmhouse, but fortunately there were no
injuries or fatalities. In 2000, Wichita experienced its
second hottest August on record, with an average monthly
temperature of 86.6 degrees at Mid Continent Airport.
Wichita's hottest August on record occurred in 1936 with
an average monthly temperature of 89.0 degrees. In 2005,
Wichita experienced its wettest August on record when
11.96 inches of rain swamped Mid Continent Airport. The
driest August on record occurred in 1913 when no
measurable rainfall occurred. That is obviously one
record that will never be broken.
