MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
On This Day in Wx History
1996- Temperature at Sparta drops to -20, setting an all-time record low. Crossville’s low of -16 sets a record low for February.
2008- One of the worst tornado outbreaks in Middle Tennessee history strikes during the evening and early morning of the 6th. Fourteen tornadoes touch down across the mid state, including an EF-3 that kills 22 persons in Sumner, Trousdale, and Macon Counties — the deadliest single tornado in Middle Tennessee in nearly 75 years. This is the 6th largest tornado outbreak in mid state history. (This will be the subject of next week’s newsletter!)
42 Days Until Spring
Almanac for Yesterday
The next MM kids class will be this month. Class is FREE. If you would like to be added to the email list for class notifications just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An adults class will also be offered this month at TCAT to discuss the severe weather we’ve had this winter. The class is free but any donation goes toward my monthly class for kids at TCAT. Right now I’m raising money to buy tablets for the classes. These tablets will allow students to hold animated weather and space events right in their hands! I have raised $500 thus far, with another $1500 needed.
Weekly newsletter subscription proceeds go toward supporting my education outreach, primarily including the monthly class for kids that I teach at TCAT. Try a free sample at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/ and go to the “Free Sample” link. Subs are only $5 per month or discounted at $50 a year. Each week’s newsletter primarily focuses on the weather of the plateau. Find out why subscribers are raving on their new weather newsletters!
Keep in mind there is a monthly newsletter for kids for FREE at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/newsletter-for-kids/! Starting this month, there will be two newsletters for the kids each month, with one being primarily focused on space and the other on weather. Financial support for my time spent on these letters comes from the subscriptions to the weekly newsletter for adults.
The data cutoff for Drought Monitor maps is each Tuesday at 7 a.m. The maps, which are based on analysis of the data, are released each Thursday at 7:30 a.m. This week’s latest map is seen below.
On Tuesday, the plateau had a deficit in rainfall for the first time this year. That has already changed and after today we won’t worry about rainfall deficits again for a very long time.
