MM’s Mon Wx Forecast for Aug 29

Artemis 1 was scheduled for launch today, but some issues have caused that launch to be scrubbed for now. This will be the first test mission of the Artemis program that will take man back to the Moon by 2025. Keep up with it all at!

Wx Summary

A frontal system begins approaching today and that will begin to increase rain chances. Today’s activity will be the isolated to scattered variety of storms, while Tuesday is more of a widespread rain event. Those rain chances are highest on Tuesday, when some of us may even see some heavy rainfall. The front clears out Tuesday evening, setting the stage for a sunny and nice Wednesday and Thursday. Enjoy those low humidity levels! By Friday, heat and humidity begin returning, which also means a return of isolated afternoon/evening storm chances.

This Week’s Hazards

MM’s Wx Vlog 

Update: The launch has been scrubbed for today.

Five-Day Outlook

Weather Forecast

Monday: A chance for showers and thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon. Rain chances continue overnight. South wind at 5 mph.

Tuesday: Showers and thunderstorms likely. Some of the rainfall could be heavy. West wind at 5-10 mph.

Wednesday & Thursday: Mostly sunny & pleasant. Enjoy the low humidity! Northerly wind at 5 mph.

Friday: Moslty sunny & hot. Humidity begins increasing. Calm winds.

MM’s Severe Wx Concerns 

Widespread severe weather is not expected today, but anyone with outdoor plans will need to keep a close eye on the radar. Any storm that develops, though isolated, could be strong and contain cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and heavy rainfall.

Tomorrow, widespread showers and storms will be the rule of the day. However, the risk for severe weahter is very low. Just watch out for heavier downpours that could lead to water standing on roadways.

Past 24-Hour Precip Totals 

Folks along the western and eastern edges of the plateau saw storms on Sunday, while much of Cumberland and Fentress counties remained dry.

Hurricane Forecast

None of the four areas being watched pose any immediate threat, if at all, to the US coastline. The red-shaded region is expected to develop into a tropical depression or storm by Wednesday, but data thus far shows it staying out at sea. I’ll continue to monitor each area for any changes that could affect the coast or even us here on the plateau.
