I did a quick search on this and didn't see anything so hopefully it has not been posted before but I found it interesting...

"Imagine bundling up to get the newspaper on an early morning at 7:30 a.m. with the temperature at a frigid -4 degrees.

Just two minutes later as you are letting Fido have a potty break on the lawn, you notice that the frigid air you walked out the door into is not so frigid anymore. You look at your thermometer and the temperature has shot up to 45 degrees. That's right, a temperature increase of 49 degrees in just two minutes!

But wait, that's not the end of this wild morning weather story. After the temperature climbs all the way to 54 degrees at 9 a.m., it crashes down again 58 degrees in 27 minutes to -4 degrees once again

Sounds like a dream, but it's not. All of this happened in Spearfish, S.D. on January 22, 1943.

Here is the whole article off the Weather Channel

sounds like some kind of radiation blast, giant solar x flare?. or maybe some kind of steam vent opened up in the area?



The wild temperature fluctuations were likely due to cold air and warm air sloshing back and forth along the plains at the base of the Black Hills. A similar effect would be to pour warm water into a shallow bowl of cold water. The water would slosh back and forth a few times before settling down. This is likely what happened with the warm and cold air along the Black Hills."

never mind, not as dramatic or exciting lol

S&F for you for pulling in an ambulance chaser like myself...build me up with the suspense to get to the punchline...70 year old weather front! Great post OP, quite the change in temps. And I thought it was cool to watch a bank thermometer drop from 33 degrees to 14 degrees in one hour last Saturday while out to dinner.

Sounds like a Chinook to me:

Happens almost every winter in Alberta and sometimes the prairies. Not always as extreme but it can be.

Peace

Really cool thread. I was relieved to hear it was a long time ago, cause if something as dramatic as that went off today, there would be 10 doom and gloom threads, and 5 OMG threads this morning lol!

The Earth is an amazing place. Star and flag, and thanks for sharing!

Peace

Had that happen once, not as drastic though.
It was like 87 degrees,partly cloudy, and the ol' man and I decided to take our little one for a walk.

We got to the end of our driveway, and not even past our property line (100 ft), a big gust of wind came up, and one second it was too hot and muggy, to like 55 degrees in one gust of wind. That was kinda scary.

Of course, the saying here in Indiana is:

"If you don't like the weather in Indiana, wait a minute, it will change."

yep, I live right smack in the middle of Chinook territory in southern Alberta. I've seen temps go from -30 C (-22 F) to +15 C (+59 F) in a matter of hours, Usually we will see Chinooks lasting for days or in rare cases weeks.. Never seen temperature change as drastic as indicated in this OP though, that is one fast temperature change.
