    Well, in those years,USA’s weather was strongly affected by war. Here is a very complex analysis of what happened more than 70 years ago: http://www.2030climate.com/a2005/02_32-Dateien/02_32.html. I’m quoting: “The first signs of a ‘real’ winter emerged at Christmas time 1939, when except for the Deep South and California, the United States had snow and extreme cold. (NYT, 26 Dec. 1939). Winter came earnestly in early January 1940, with a frigid wave that gripped most of the United States (NYT, 06 Jan. 1940). Icy north-westerly winds swept over New York with force, on January 06, causing temperatures to drop to an average of 10 degrees Fahrenheit below normal (NYT, 07 Jan.40). From the Continental Divide to the Atlantic Coast there were strange occurrences as compared with normal weather conditions. Frigid waves even touched the northern parts of Florida.”
