A bit of a snowy start to December?

Weather Headlines

–Wind and rain will be the story for Saturday. Rainfall of 1-2 inches expected.

–Light snow develops Sunday night, with light accumulations of 1″ or so expected.

Main threats

Be careful for gusty winds on Saturday and Saturday night. As always, windy days bring the potential for spotty power outages.

Light snow Sunday night and Monday morning could lead to some slick spots on area roadways (monitoring).

Summary

We’ll see mostly cloudy skies for our Black Friday, but I think it will stay dry until after dark. It will be a cool day but winds should stay light to calm.

On Saturday, wind and rain increases across the plateau. Some of that rain could be heavy at times and we could even hear some thunder. Thankfully, the severe threat will stay well to our south.

That rain moves out early Sunday morning, leaving us with a mostly cloudy and cool Sunday.

After dark Sunday night, rain will develop and, as temps fall into the lower 30s, that rain will transition to some light snow. Accumulations are possible, especially on grassy areas. The latest guidance suggest around one inch or accumulation across the plateau, depending on when temps dip to the freezing mark. I’m watching it closely!

Records

Crossville set an all-time record low for the month of November on this day in 1955. Folks on the Cumberland Plateau awoke to morning low temps around five degrees on that day! Whew…..that’s cold!

And proof that we can get just about anything this time of year….

On this day in 2016, an EF-1 tornado struck Tullahoma, in southern Middle Tennessee. The tornado snapped and uprooted hundreds of trees across the north side of the city and damaged numerous homes around Lake Tullahoma. One person was injured when a tree fell on their car.

Be sure and check out my NASA Social story in today’s Chronicle! It’s on page 7. This is my story about my trip to Wallop’s Island, Virginia to watch the resupply mission to the International Space Station. What a trip!

On a side note, you can also catch my story about my fight for an officer-controlled traffic light at North Cumberland Elementary School. You can find my petition for that at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfG94UC4fvocD-sdss_wK8Bek2-0oMl8KL6zTzkgD8ReZa4zA/viewform. I only ask that you be a resident of Cumberland County to sign the form.
