This Month's Daily Reports compiled by Matt Higgins
Date: Sat Nov 3, 2001 12:30 pm Subject: Weather Update 9:00 a.m. 11/03/01 Past 24 hours Rainfall: 0.33" Amber Dalakas Brunswick 2NE Medina County Date: Mon Nov 5, 2001 11:18 pm Subject: Records On November 4'th at 2:26 p.m. Newcomerstown 1S established a record high temperature of 67 degrees. This smashed
the previous record high of 57 degrees set in 1999 & 2000. Granted, my stations records are not that old, but 67 is a
nice reading for early November. On the low side of the scale, we are threatening the record low temperatures for November 5 and 6. The record for
November 5 is 29 set in 2000 and for November 6'th the record is 27 also in 2000. We might tie or surpass either/both
of those records. Don Keating #106 Newcomerstown 1S Date: Tue Nov 6, 2001 7:40 pm Subject: Northern Lights Seen The Northern Lights were seen throughout Northwest Ohio on 11/5/01. Many people called their local law enforcement agencies about this not knowing what they were. I have seen them
before & I knew right away what they were & what cause them. But when I first saw them I too didn't know what they
were or where they come from. Many years have gone by such I have seen the northern lights. This is only the
second time I saw these lights. So if you see a red glow and blue lights in the northern sky at night you too will know
what they are and how they came about. Solar storm activity causes them. They are most visible on a clear night.
