Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History
1894 – A forest fire driven by high winds burned down the town of Hinkley, Minnesota, killing 418 persons.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 112° at Stovepipe Wells, California
Low: 22° at Sand Creek Station, Oregon
The most concerning system is “Larry”. That storm is located well out at sea. Actually, it’s not far from Africa! So, there’s plenty of time to track it and it will likely not be a concern for the US. Still, it is forecast to become a major hurricane and it’s one we’ll keep an eye on. It may just end up being one of those systems that is beautiful on satellite out at sea and never really affects any land.
Other than Larry, there’s the yellow-shaded area to watch. However, it looks like it may be more of Mexico’s problem than ours. Farther east, Kate has weakened again and will always stay at sea.

Today’s Tennessee Weather
The remnants of “Ida” are moving out and that means drier air will begin moving into the state today. Before the drier air can completely take hold, we’ll dodge a few showers and thunderstorms. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy today, keeping temperatures cooler than they would otherwise be.
Tonight’s Tennessee Weather
By the overnight hours, skies will be clear and starry. Pleasant overnight lows will fall to near 60 degrees.
Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather
A sunny Thursday is on tap for the Volunteer state! Even with all that August sunshine, afternoon temps will still be quite pleasant for this time of year.
