Pearl Harbor weather history
From the Sun's print editions:Baltimore Sun librarian Paul McCardell provides this guest post:
As the nation pauses this week to remember the 70th anniversary of the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor, here is a glimpse into the weather that day.
In Baltimore, the air was chilly with a high of 44.
The first bombs fell on Pearl Harbor at 7:55 a.m. About a half hour earlier, the reading at the U.S. Weather station in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii, was 73 degrees. The skies over Pearl Harbor were partly cloudy with good visibility.
The normal high for Pearl Harbor in December is 81 and low 68. In Baltimore, the normal temp ranges from 45 to 28.
Let us pause and remember the sacrifices made that day, a day that changed the course of history.
