Today’s Stats

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1752 – The second severe hurricane in two weeks hit the Carolinas. The Onslow County Courthouse was destroyed along with all its records, and Beacon Island disappeared.

1893 – The second great hurricane of the 1893 season hit the Mississippi Delta Region drowning more than 1000 persons.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  102° at Zapata, Texas

Low:   9° at Peter Sinks, Utah & and Mackay, Idaho 


There are only a couple of areas to watch in the tropics now, with neither one being a direct threat to the US. Hurricane Sam continues to be a major hurricane this morning, even flirting with cat 5 intensity. But he will stay out to sea. The graphic below shows the forecast path for Sam and his winds. Tropical Storm Victor is behind Sam but will also spin out to sea.

The only risk to the US will come from dangerous rip currents on the East Coast. Major hurricanes are notorious for producing those life-threatening currents along our coasts.

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

The week will end with partly to mostly sunny skies across the state. Those passing clouds may produce a few showers and thunderstorms for western and central regions of the state. Afternoon highs will reach the low to mid 80s statewide.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

A clear to partly cloudy night is in store for the state, with a slight chance for a shower or storm across the west. East Tennessee will need to be aware of patchy dense fog that may form during the night. Overnight lows will fall to near 60 degrees for much of East Tennessee and the Cumberland Plateau, while areas west of the plateau will see overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Skies will once again be partly to mostly sunny across the state, with another chance for a shower or thunderstorm across mainly West and Middle Tennessee. Those storm chances are not a washout, by any means, but it’s a storm chance you need to be aware of if you have outdoor plans. Afternoon highs will once again climb into the low to mid 80s statewide.

Meteorologist Mark Pro 

This week’s newsletter features an article about a chilly year we had on the plateau back in the 1950s, as well as article on the fires in the Sequoias and how those fires may affect us. That letter is now published and available for subscribers.

Coming in October, a kid’s science newsletter will be included with the MeteorologistMarkPro subscription! This has been requested many times over the past few years and by October it will be a reality! I’m so excited to be adding this to the growing list of products offered by the Pro subscription! October’s issue is looking really cool!

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