MM’s Saturday Weather Forecast (Jan 8)

The arctic blast loosens its grip

Special Note

The free MM newsletters for kids are changing this month! There will now be two newsletters per month, with one being about weather and the other about space. A “space” one was released last night. The goal is to release one on the 15th and 30th of each month. The next one will arrive the 30th of this month. These are free thanks to subscriptions to the adult newsletters each month. The newsletters for kids are available for kids and the kid-at-heart at

MM’s Severe Wx Concerns 

MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

On This Day in Wx History

1886- A winter storm system ushers in one of the worst cold outbreaks in mid state history. A strong cold front brings 3.7″ of snow to Nashville, and drops the temperature from a high of 35 degrees to -8 the following morning. For the next 3 days, the temperature does not rise above 8 degrees, and the low temperature drops to 0 or below for five consecutive mornings, falling to -9 degrees on the morning of January 11.

Newsletter subscription proceeds go toward supporting my education outreach, primarily including the monthly class for kids that I teach at TCAT and the materials we use in those classes for our hands-on learning projects.
