Weather History and Archives

The best resource for finding historical weather data is the
Type in your City, State or Zipcode...
Near the bottom of that page there will be a section marked "Historical Conditions". Just select the date you are interested in.

If you still can't find what you're looking for...
If you can not find it on the internet, go to your local library. There you can find newspapers from past dates. Look at the weather section for the date you are looking for. That has worked well for many people.
