HRRR Radar Model (Radar Simulation)

Extended Forecast

Friday: Partly cloudy.

Saturday: Partly cloudy, with showers and storms developing overnight.

Sunday: Rain and thunderstorms likely.

Seven-Day Rainfall Forecast

This is the anticipated rainfall for the week, as forecast by the computer models. It looks like a healthy drink of water is coming to much of the state over the next week. The heaviest rains are expected to stay to our west (red-shaded regions).

MM Classes

Last evening’s first MM kids class in Fentress County went absolutely great! We had a wonderful turnout and a very fun class. I can’t wait to do it again!

The latest newsletter was released Friday, as it is each and every Friday! This newsletter focuses on the violent tornado that struck the Tansi community in May of 1995. That was a phenomenal storm that, after many quiet years, reminded us of our vulnerability to severe weather. Find out about this and more at! Proceeds from subscriptions go toward supporting the MM kids classes taught monthly at both TCAT Crossville and Roane State Clarkrange.
