Groundhog Day Storm
The 1952 Groundhog Day Storm was the only Atlantic tropical cyclone on record in the month of February. First observed in the western Caribbean Sea on February 2, it moved rapidly throughout its duration and struck southwestern Florida within 24 hours of forming. In the state, the winds damaged some crops and power lines, but no serious damage was reported. The storm intensified in the western Atlantic Ocean before transitioning into an extratropical cyclone by February 4, off the coast of North Carolina. Strong winds and waves washed a freighter ashore, but no injuries were related to the event. Subsequently, the storm brushed eastern New England, causing minor power outages, before it moved inland near Maine. There were no reported fatalities related to the storm.

The storm will have many negative effects, especially in parts of the Northeast, where snow-removal budgets have been drained and roofs are stressed to the failure point from the magnitude of prior, record-breaking snowstorms.
