A nice day for Flag Day


Main threats:

No widespread hazardous weather in sight.


Look for one more beautiful day today, with a very pleasant afternoon high in the mid 70s. My home weather station recorded a morning low of 42 degrees! The record for Crossville was 43 degrees for this morning but the official reading was 44 at the airport.

Saturday is looking very nice, too. It will be a bit warmer, but it still isn’t bad at all for the middle of June.

The models have backed off of precip for Father’s Day, but we’ll still have the threat of a shower or storm hanging over our heads, especially in the afternoon and evening. Just have an indoor back-up plan if you have any outdoor Father’s Day activities planned.

The pattern becomes more unsettled and wet as we head into the new work week. Scattered showers and t-storms look to be with us every day next week.

Long range forecasts call for above normal rainfall through June.

As if we needed a thought to cool us off, a snowflake falling at 2-4 mph can take up to an hour to reach the ground. I bet that’s a wild ride!


On this day in 1903, a cloudburst in the hills of Oregon near Willow Creek sent a 20-foot wall of water downstream. A third of the town of Willow Creek was destroyed and 236 residents were killed.

One year ago today

It was a warm day! The high was 85 and the low was only 75 degrees. No rain fell.


Today I’m excited to be job shadowed by Maddie Bernabei! Maddie is a Junior at UT Martin studying meteorology.

It’s also an exciting day at weatherTAP because we are celebrating having our weatherTAP weather display systems coast to coast now! Remember, if you are ever in ANY Tennessee welcome center or rest area look for our weather on the monitors! We are in every single one of those locations! So, I made a cake to celebrate, of course.
