Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History
1900 – The greatest weather disaster in U.S. records occurred when a hurricane struck Galveston TX. A tide fifteen feet high washed over the island demolishing or carrying away buildings, and drowning more than 6000 persons. The hurricane destroyed more than 3600 houses, and total damage was more than thirty million dollars. Winds to 120 mph, and a twenty foot storm surge accompanied the hurricane. Following the storm, the surf was three hundred feet inland from the former water line. The hurricane claimed another 1200 lives outside of the Galveston area. (8th-9th)
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 122° at Death Valley, California
Low: 17° at Peter Sinks, Utah
Hurricane Larry is spinning away at sea. The yellow-shaded region off the coast of Africa is something that we have plenty of time to watch. The orange-shaded region is the most interesting. That system is now expected to become a tropical storm, as it traverses the Southeast. Heavy rainfall will be the main threat.

Today’s Tennessee Weather
The best chance of rain for the week comes today, though that rain chance is only about 30% across the state. The best time of day for that shower or storm will be this afternoon and evening. Most of us will see lots of clouds today, which will keep temps in the lower 80s. Where there are more breaks in the clouds, afternoon high temps will climb into the mid 80s.
Tonight’s Tennessee Weather
A few leftover showers or storms may linger into the evening across the Cumberland Plateau and East Tennessee. Otherwise, look for skies to clear from west to east overnight, allowing temps to fall to near 60 degrees.
Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather
Those beautiful clear September skies return for Thursday! Expect lots of sunshine and pleasant afternoon highs near 80 degrees. A light northerly breeze and low humidity levels will make for a fall-like feel to the air.
