Strong southerly winds Thurs night & Friday could cause some sporadic power outages.
MM’s Forecast Summary
Elevated Wildfire Danger & the Next Storm System
Southerly breezes today will blow in our next rain system by tonight. Tomorrow will likely be the windiest day of this week, with gusts to 35 mph (perhaps higher). Total rainfall from tonight through Friday is expected to stay at or under 1/2 inch. The weekend looks to be cloudy, with scattered showers.
FYI, it continues to look like the bulk of Friday’s rain will have moved out before Friday at the Crossroads in downtown Crossville begins Friday evening (4-8:00pm). The theme this time is Winter Wonderland.
