Today’s Stats

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

2002- The remnants of Tropical Storm Isidore move across Middle Tennessee during the overnight hours. Waverly sets a new single-day rainfall record* with 8.18″.

*This was a record set before the flash flood disaster they had this year.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  107° at Death Valley, California

Low:   14° at Peter Sinks, Utah 

Tropics 

The tropics are active but thankfully all the systems seem to be following each out to sea and away from the US.

Hurricane Sam is the most powerful (by far!) of all the systems that are being tracked. It continues to look like Sam will stay away from the US, but that’s not 100% certain just yet. Sam is packing winds of 145 mph this morning, making him a very dangerous cat 4.

1977- An F-0 tornado cuts a 5-mile path across Cumberland County, near Homestead and Dorton. No injuries are reported.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  110° at Death Valley, California

Low:   14° at Peter Sinks, Utah 

Tropics 

The tropics are certainly active! Teresa is spinning out to sea, as is the system shaded in yellow. The orange-shaded region will need to be monitored closely over the coming week or so. The greatest concern is Hurricane Sam, which I have more info on below.

Hurricane Sam is almost a major hurricane, with winds of 110 mph. The storm is going to slowly churn across the Atlantic. It is a storm that is worth watching, but we have lots of time to do so, especially with it’s slow forward motion. The storm is forecast to become at least a cat 4 over the weekend.

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1950 – A smoke pall from western Canada forest fires covered much of the eastern US. Daylight was reduced to nighttime darkness in parts of the Northeast. The color of the sun varied from pink to purple, blue, or lavender. Yellow to grey-tan was common.

1972 – Lightning struck a man near Waldport, Oregon, who just happened to be carrying thirty-five pieces of dynamite.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  108° at Death Valley, California

Low:   19° at Peter Sinks, Utah 

Tropics 

We now have Hurricane Sam. The storm rapidly intensified overnight from barely being a tropical storm to now being a hurricane. The storm continues to rapidly intensify and is expected to become a major hurricane over the weekend (if not tonight!). Right now, maximum intensity is forecast at cat 4, though it’s not impossible that Sam will make a run for cat 5 status. The storm is not a threat to the US and is currently not expected to be a threat for the mainland. That will need to be watched, of course. Models currently show a threat to Bermuda next week.

Sun & Moon 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

The week is ending with fantastic weather! After some morning fog burns off, look for abundant sunshine and afternoon highs in the low to mid 70s. It will be a bit warmer along the Mississippi River, with highs reaching near 80 degrees. It’s a beautiful day to get outside!

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

Under clear to partly cloudy skies, overnight lows will fall into the low to mid 50s across the state.

Weekend Tennessee Weather 

The pattern of warm afternoons and crisp, cool nights continues right on through the weekend! Expect partly to mostly sunny skies and afternoon highs near 80 degrees for West Tennessee, with low to mid 70s expected for much of Middle and East Tennessee. Overnight lows will fall into the 50s. Get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather if you can!

Special Note

My mentee with Kids on the Rise lost his grandmother last weekend to covid. We will be honoring her life on Saturday, for anyone who would like to come and show their support to Michael and Abby. I’m also working on other ways you can show support, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, prayers are greatly appreciated.

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1989 – Hurricane Hugo quickly lost strength over South Carolina, but still was a tropical storm as it crossed into North Carolina, just west of Charlotte, at about 7 AM. Winds around Charlotte reached 69 mph, with gusts to 99 mph. Eighty percent of the power was knocked out to Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Property damage in North Carolina was 210 million dollars, and damage to crops was 97 million dollars. The strongest storm surge occurred along the southern coast shortly after midnight, reaching nine feet above sea level at ocean Isle and Sunset Beach. Hugo killed one person and injured fifteen others in North Carolina.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  108° at El Centro & Palm Springs, California

Low:   19° at Peter Sinks, Utah 

Tropics 

The tropics remain active but the only area of interest to the US is the system that will likely become Tropical Storm Sam today. That system is expected to evolve into a major hurricane by Monday night. Hopefully, the storm will curve on out to sea, but it certainly bears watching.

Sun & Moon 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

Fall has certainly arrived in the South! After some patchy morning fog, look for abundant sunshine and pleasant afternoon high temps. Much of the state will be in the mid to upper 60s for much of the day.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

Some might classify tonight’s low temps as “chilly.” Under starry skies and a nearly-full moon, overnight lows will fall into the 40s across the state. Watch for some patchy fog by daybreak.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

More sunshine awaits us for Friday. Afternoon highs will be a bit warmer than on Thursday, but continued pleasant. Much of the state will see highs climb to near 70 degrees, with West Tennessee climbing into the mid to upper 70s.

Special Note

Many of you know that I mentor in the Kids on the Rise program in Cumberland County. I have two teenage boys and one them lost the grandmother who was raising him this past weekend. She passed away from covid. We will be honoring her life at Liberty Baptist Church on Saturday, Sept. 25th, at 11:00 for anyone who is interested in coming to that service. Lunch will be provided afterwards for those who are interested. We want to celebrate the life of Thelma Haney, while showing Michael (and his sister Abby) how very much they are loved and supported. I am also very glad to say that they have both since been placed (together) with an absolutely wonderful foster family right here in Cumberland County. Prayers answered, for sure!

You all have a great day and keep lookin’ up!
