Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Concerns

Almanac for Yesterday


This one has my attention. Over the coming days, an area of low pressure is expected to develop in the Bay of Campeche. That low pressure will drift northward and possibly strengthen. There’s plenty of time to watch this but if you have plans to the Gulf Coast in the coming week, this is something you want to keep a bit of an eye on.

On This Day in Wx History

1842 – A late season snowstorm struck New England. Snow fell during the morning and early afternoon, accumulating to a depth of ten to twelve inches at Irasburg, Vermont. Berlin, New Hampshire was blanketed with eleven inches of snow during the day. Snow whitened the higher peaks of the Appalachians as far south as Maryland!

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  116° at Rio Grande Village, Texas

Low:   13° at Bodie State Park, California 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

We have one last day of scattered showers and thunderstorms before this pattern breaks. Like all of the storms this week, storms today could produce very heavy rainfall, deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, and gusty winds. Clouds and showers will keep temperatures in the low to mid 80s for many of us.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather 

Shower and thunderstorm chances drop off overnight, but there will likely be some lingering showers and thunderstorms scattered about the state. It’s to be another humid night, with lows around 70 degrees statewide.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Rain chances drop to about 30% for the state on Saturday. With fewer clouds and showers around, temperatures will be able to warm into the mid to upper 80s for much of the state. It will continue to be humid, making it feel much warmer than it really is. Be sure and stay cool and hydrated.

Drought Monitor

The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.

Weather SnapShots

Jon Rudder (@JonRudder) snapped this incredible pic of yesterday’s sunrise solar eclipse. And yes, that’s the Empire State Building in the foreground. What a photo!

We might have been able to have seen a partial eclipse here (10%), but clouds had something to say about that.

NASA Nerdology 

“Although the quantity of material is small, its significance is very great,” Lee R. Scherer. During this week in 1971, the United States and USSR exchanged lunar samples to show greater cooperation in space between the two countries.

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