Today’s Stats

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1999- Livingston records its greatest one-day rainfall ever, with 5.80″.

2005 – Katrina becomes a hurricane just before landfall in south Florida between Hallandale Beach and North Miami Beach. Maximum sustained winds at the time of landfall were near 80 mph. There were eleven fatalities in South Florida, including four by falling trees. More than 1.3 million customers lost electrical services, and preliminary insured loss estimates ranged from $600 million to $2 billion in the state of Florida

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  112° at death Valley & Stovepipe Wells, California

Low:   21° at Stanley, Idaho and Choteau, Montana  

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

Patchy morning fog will be followed by partly to mostly sunny Tennessee skies today. Afternoon highs near 100 degrees for the Memphis area have prompted the issuance of heat advisories there. Elsewhere across the state, look for hot afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s. The best chance for an isolated afternoon thunderstorm will be across the Cumberland Plateau and East Tennessee.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

A late evening showers is possible across the easternmost portion of the state. Otherwise, look for mostly clear skies across the area tonight, with overnight lows in the low to mid 70s. Be mindful of patchy dense fog that may develop.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Another hot day is in store for the state on Thursday. Increased humidity levels will lead to about a 50% chance for an afternoon and evening shower or thunderstorm. Afternoon high temps should climb into the low to mid 90s, but high humidity levels will make it feel much hotter.


Certainly, the most concerning area of interest to the US is the one headed for the southern Gulf of Mexico. That system should get there by Sunday. At this time, models are showing a hurricane in the Gulf from this by early next week and that storm could be steered toward the Gulf Coast. I’ll keep a very close eye on that!

The other two areas of interest look they will stay at sea.
