MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

This morning’s guidance continues to trend drier for our area on Tuesday. A snow flurry or two can’t be ruled out, but even that seems unlikely at this point. Most of the moisture should stay well south of Tennessee.

Yet another system will be monitored for Friday. Moisture continues to look very limited with that system too, but I’ll keep an eye on it.

On This Day in Wx History

1963- Temperature at Kingston Springs drops to -30 degrees, which is the lowest temperature ever recorded in Middle Tennessee, and comes within 2 degrees of tying the all-time record low for Tennessee (Mountain City, 12/30/1917). Other record lows include Clarksville (-17), Dover (-24), Lafayette (-20), Linden (-18), Portland (-19), Springfield (-18), and Waverly (-26). In fact, Waverly sees its temperature drop by 80 degrees with the passage of the strongest cold front in mid state history. Five inches of snow accompany the dramatic change in temperature. The Duck River freezes solid from bank to bank for the first time since 1898. Harbors along the Tennessee River also freeze. It is considered the worst winter weather since the 1951 ice storm.

1997- A rare winter severe weather outbreak results in at least seven tornadoes across Middle Tennessee, injuring 31 persons and causing damage in excess of $9 million. Amazingly, there are no fatalities. Barfield, near Murfreesboro, is hit by an F-4.
