January 6-7, 1821: A nor'easter of great intensity hit the Eastern Seaboard from Charleston to New England. The band of deep snow stretched from interior Virginia to the southern New Jersey coast. A foot of snow fell across DC according to press accounts, though John Q. Adams thought it was more like 18 inches. Baltimore measured 14 inches. The storm was recorded at Fort McHenry starting around 1 pm on the 6th and ending about 9 am the following morning with temperatures hovering in the 20�s throughout. Philadelphia saw 18 inches in 20 hours. An arctic air mass descended over the region following the storm and low temperatures dropped to around zero.
