Dear Mr. Parlee,
Thank you for sharing your question with the History Hub.
The information you are looking for may be part of National Archives Record Group 18: Records of the Army Air Forces [AAF].
The series Atlases of Climatic Conditions, 1943-1945, for example, is “arranged chronologically by month” and includes “reports on weather conditions in different parts of the world. Conditions such as wind patterns, precipitation, and topography are noted.” This series is in the custody of the Cartographic and Architectural Reference Branch at the National Archives in College Park, MD (Archives II). You can email them at email@example.com with questions.
There may also be information related to the storm included in the series World War II Combat Operations Reports (also in RG 18). These records are in the custody of the Textual Reference Branch at Archives II. Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include as much information as possible (e.g. dates, unit numbers) in your inquiry.
There are also additional unit histories and supporting documents of Army Air Force units in the custody of the Air Force Historical Research Agency, 600 Chennault Circle, Building 1405, Maxwell Air Force Base, AL 36112-6424. These files often include historical reports. You may also want to call (334) 953-2395 or write to that office for further information concerning any records in their custody. The website is http://www.afhra.af.mil/.
Thank you, again, for posting your question to History Hub, and best of luck with your ongoing
This is interesting concerning potential cyclic magnetic storms? Perhaps NOAA has tracked these occurrences?
