24-Hour Temperature Change 

Temps are considerably warmer for much of Tennessee and Kentucky compared to this time yesterday. The valley of East Tennessee was sheltered from the southerly winds this morning, which left them colder than surrounding higher elevations. That shows up very well on this map!

On This Day in Wx History

2001- Heavy rainfall event spanning two days ends with significant localized and river flooding across much of western Middle Tennessee. Some stations report large precipitation totals spanning the two days, including Clifton (8.44″), Dover (7.02″), Waverly (5.90″), Linden (5.77″), Lobelville (5.35″), Pinewood (5.10″), and Centerville (5.06″).

The next MM Kids class will be Tuesday, December 7, at 4:00 pm at TCAT. Suggested age range is 8 yrs and up.

This hour-long class focuses on weather folklore. We’ll discuss what works and what doesn’t and why. We’ll also discuss just how complex our planet’s atmosphere is and what that means for folklore. A hands-on activity will make the lesson come to life! Sign up at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeJd9uESXEQKxIxF07Hk0BxcDaCsCpxWHVceM-YqtZzww7y7Q/viewform

South Drought Summary

Estimated Population in Drought Areas in the South: 5,614,886

Half an inch to locally an inch of rain fell over Mississippi, Tennessee, eastern parts of Arkansas, and parts of Louisiana. Half an inch to locally over 2 inches was observed over Deep South Texas. Other than those areas, most of the South received no precipitation this week. Drying soils, high evapotranspiration, and worsening SPI and SPEI drought indicators prompted expansion of D0-D3 in western parts of Oklahoma and Texas, while D0-D1 expanded in eastern portions of Texas and Oklahoma to western parts of Mississippi. The rains in Deep South Texas eliminated moderate drought and contracted abnormal dryness along the southern Rio Grande River.
