MM’s Wx Concerns
Much colder air will arrive over the coming weekend and into early next week. Data has trended a bit warmer with this coming airmass, but it will still be very cold air compared to the warm days we’re having this week! Prepare for cold overnight lows and chilly afternoon highs. Make plans now to keep those outside fur babies warm and cozy.

On This Day in Wx History
2002- Middle Tennessee suffers one of its worst autumn severe weather outbreaks ever. Four tornadoes strike the Highland Rim during the early morning, with two fatalities in Port Royal. Then, following record high temperatures at Nashville (81) and Crossville (75), severe weather re-ignites during the late afternoon, with widespread wind damage, hail, and 8 additional tornadoes. Lake Tansi, south of Crossville, is hardest hit, as a supercell produces baseball-size hail and an F3 tornado, killing four. Two additional fatalities occur at New Union (Coffee County) as the result of two F2 tornadoes there. In addition to the eight fatalities, 51 injuries are reported across the area.
I have a special story on this event in this week’s weekly newsletter at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/.
Last night’s MM Kids class was a huge success! We learned about how climate change led to the dino’s demise. We then created our own dinosaur world in our terrariums. The kids were able to take those projects home with them. They took the random materials I gave them and then used their creativity to make a world any dinosaur would appreciate .I took pictures of each project for folks on Facebook to vote on. You can see those on my Facebook page and cast your vote!
I’ll have a complete write-up on this MM class in next month’s free monthly kids newsletter.
