Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 106° at Rio Grande village, Texas
Low: 10° at Bodie State Park, California
We have two new systems to watch now for this week, though neither are looking all that impressive. They both look to head for the Bahamas as the week progresses, bringing rain showers and gusty winds. It’s not looking like either one would have big impacts on the US, but I’ll keep a watch on them. They each only have a 20% chance for developing into a tropical depression or storm.

The first Upper Cumberland Bigfoot festival is coming October 16th to benefit the United Fund of Cumberland County! Go to https://ucbigfoot.com/ for more information! Look for my booth at the festival! I’ll have shirts and pictures to sell, as well as some goodies to give away while supplies last.
Today’s Tennessee Weather
A system that brought severe storms to the southern plains on Sunday will be weakening as it moves into West Tennessee today. Never the less, a strong to severe storm remains possible with this activity. Much of the rest of the state will see partly to mostly sunny skies. Winds will pick up as we go through the day, becoming quite breezy for many of us by the afternoon. Afternoon highs will climb to near 80 degrees statewide.
Tonight’s Tennessee Weather
The weakening frontal system continues moving east into the night, bringing a chance for scattered showers and a thunderstorm to Middle Tennessee. Severe weather is not expected. Overnight lows will be near 60 degrees statewide.
Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather
Partly to mostly sunny skies are expected for Tuesday. Some of those clouds may drop a shower on the Cumberland Plateau and southeast Tennessee. Many of us stay dry and partly to mostly sunny. Comfortable afternoon high temps top out in the mid to upper 70s.
