Almanac for Yesterday

MM’s Severe Wx Concerns 

Wednesday’s threat is greatest across Putnam, Cumberland, White, and Bledsoe Counties (and any location south of these counties). The threat is lower along and north of a line from Livingston to Jamestown, though you all are still at risk for a severe storm.

Severe storms will be possible both Friday night and Saturday, as it looks right now. Keep this in mind if you have holiday plans. We’ll focus on this more after we get passed today’s threat. This system could evolve into more of a flood threat than severe weather threat. Stay tuned.

MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

Impacts look low to zero for this event, but I’ll keep a close eye on it! The main story will be the sharply colder temperatures! Make sure your outdoor fur babies are sheltered and dry before this 40-degree temp plunge arrives Sunday!
