Daily Forecast Summary/Discussion
If you compare this 7-Day outlook to yesterday’s, you’d notice it is trending much drier. With our rainfall deficit quickly approaching three inches, that’s not good. Fingers crossed that you get one of these showers over the coming days!
The best chance for rain comes Tuesday and even that is looking drier than it was.
Notice those 80-degree temps coming! That is a welcome sight to many of us!

On This Day in Wx History
1834 – The Northern Atlantic Coast States were in the midst of their greatest May snowstorm of record. The hills around Newbury, Vermont, were covered with two to three feet of snow!
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

Today’s Tennessee Weather
It’s a day of wall to wall sunshine across the state! The next system will begin throwing a few clouds across our skies as we go through the day, with a chance for a shower across the northwest part of the state by evening. All in all, it’s a nice May day across Tennessee!

Check out this incredible shot of a storm south of McLave, Colorado. This was taken yesterday evening. The storm was tornado-warned, thought it doesn’t appear to be producing a tornado at this time. Notice that look of “spin” in the clouds, though. Storm chasers refer to that lowering, spinning cloud as a “Mothership”, for understandable reasons.
Notice the lack of rainfall. That is true for many storms this far west and even storms farther north, across the northern plains. Our storms in the South are LOADED with moisture but storms much farther from the Gulf are not. That allows you to really see the storm structure. Pretty cool, right?
Not everyone who works for NASA is an engineer! Self-labeled ‘spacecraft dressmaker’ Lien Pham works at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs and designs and fabricates thermal blankets for spacecraft. NASA is a village of people with a broad range of talents!
