It’s a hot and mainly dry weekend on the plateau. As always, with this much heat and some humidity we can never completely rule out a storm, but a great many of us will stay dry through the weekend. That will change on Monday, as a new frontal system approaches. Look for scattered shower and thunderstorm chances to be with us Monday through Wednesday.

Other important information will be shared when needed. This includes severe weather information, radar simulations, drought info, and more. Many of these can be found as tabs to this page at any time.
Starting in August, the MM newsletter will be published monthly, rather than weekly. The new format will be more in depth and focus heavily on the kids classes I teach and the weather of the plateau and Tennessee. There will be a new section that discusses the main weather headlines of the previous month. The new newsletter format is sure to be a hit!
Remember, subscriptions from those newsletters pay for for materials for the kids’ classes (Thank you!). Those subs are only $5 monthly or discounted to $50 per year (https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/). Donations are also gladly accepted at PayPal ( paypal.me/meteorologistmark) or P.O. Box 51, Clarkrange, TN, 38553.
