Today

Weather Headlines

–Rain showers return for Friday, ending Saturday

–A beautiful Sunday ahead

–More rain returns Tuesday (possibly heavy)

Main threats

No significant threats in sight.

Summary

We’ll see lots of clouds around today, and perhaps a sprinkle. The better chance for showers arrives tonight and tomorrow. Those showers won’t amount to too much, maybe around a half inch of rain,at best. Many of us will see amounts closer to a quarter of an inch.

Those showers taper off on Saturday but the clouds will likely stick around.

By Saturday night, the clouds should begin to thin out and that should set us up for a really nice Sunday. That sunshine and warmer temperatures should feel and look quite nice!

Then, clouds begin to roll in again by Monday, ahead of our next storm system. That system looks to pack a punch with rainfall. It’s already looking like we could see 1-2 inches of rain with that system, as well as some thunderstorms. Right now, I don’t think we’ll see severe weather but folks to the south of Tennessee might.

The pattern looks to stay active even beyond Wednesday. Colder air filtering in from Canada may make for some interesting precip types by the end of next week, but it’s FAR too early to say much about that just yet.

Hazards

Records

On this day in 2002 the high temperature in Crossville hit 72 degrees, setting a new record high for the month.

On this day in 2013 a strong, early morning cold front brought severe weather to the Midstate. At least 24 mostly weak tornadoes touched down across Middle Tennessee. Of all of those tornadoes, two were EF-2s. Thankfully, the cold front stopped producing tornadoes just as it began to reach the Cumberland Plateau.

Thirsty Thursday

There is the same amount of water on Earth as there was when the Earth was formed. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank!

NASA Knowledge

Back in June, I had the opportunity to see the Parker Solar Probe launched into space aboard the magnificent Falcon Heavy rocket. On September 25, as the satellite sped toward the sun to fulfill it’s mission of studying the sun, it ended up capturing a view of the Earth, which is the bright object you see in the middle of the video below. The Parker Solar Probe will get more than seven times closer to the sun than any other spacecraft in history.

News

Waves of energy from earthquakes can travel phenomenal distances, often moving undetected by anything other than a seismograph. This is the activity detected from Tuesday’s earthquake in the Caribbean.
