48-Hour Precip Forecast

Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns

While widespread hazardous weather is not expected, we will have frost and freeze conditions to deal with by Wednesday night. Very heavy frost is expected by Thursday and Friday mornings. Keep that in mind if you have tender vegetation to protect.

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

The only reservation I have about this forecast is the chance for thunderstorms late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The Storm Prediction Center thinks we might see a strong storm or two but that just does not look very likely at all to me. The NWS Nashville agrees with me. I think the main threat will be additional rainfall that just keeps trending upward. I’m now beginning to think we may see a couple inches more rain by the time this system wraps up Wednesday night. Look for flood watches to be issued if trends continue. This is the last thing folks across the state need after this weekend’s devastating flooding.

Interestingly, the Smokies could see accumulating snowfall late Wednesday night! (March, right?ha)

After this system gets out of here, we’re in for a stretch of dry and much cooler weather that features sunny skies. I’m not sure we’ll see rain again until the end of next week!

On This Day in Wx History

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  94° at both Sebring, Florida & Anaheim, California

Low:   at Gothic, Colorado  

Today’s National Wx Hazards

An extensive area of real-estate is under the risk for wildfires today across the plains. That area stretches from North Dakota to Texas! Windy conditions with low humidity are setting the stage for wildfires. Elsewhere, accumulating snow is expected across the Rockies today.

Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards

The last thing we need is heavy rain in Tennessee but Tuesday could bring that threat to the western end of the state. The wildfire danger area shrinks to New Mexico. Snowflakes fall across the Rockies and northern plains. Winter briefly returns for the central U.S.

NASA Nerdology 

March 1989: Mission Control woke the STS-29 crew with recordings of their children shouting things like “Get up, Dad, get out of bed and get to work” and “Hi, daddy, this is your darling daughter telling you to wake up.”

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