MM’s Wx Vlog
This Week’s Hazards
Look for mostly cloudy skies to continue, with more scattered showers and thunderstorms. Those rain chances look to stick with us through Wednesday. By Thursday, a drier airmass should bring sunshine and a risk for only isolated showers and storms, mainly in the afternoon. The week ends with another system moving in that should bring an increased risk for scattered showers and storms. That risk will likely be with us through the weekend.
Tuesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Wednesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Thursday: Partly cloudy, with a risk for an isolated shower or storm.
Friday – Saturday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms.

The tropics are active! The peak of the season comes in the middle of September. Danielle continues to spin out to sea and Earl will do the same. However, Earl is forecast to become the first “major” hurricane of the season (winds greater than 111 mph) as it passes close to Bermuda Thursday night. Two other areas of disturbed weather are coming off the coast of Africa and both of those will be tracked closely over the next seven to ten days.

It’s been a year since I sarted my MM newsletter and people are renewing their subscriptions! I must be doing something right.
The latest newsletter was published Friday and I am offering it as a free sample to celebrate one year of newsletter writing. I also hope you’ll like what you see and want to subscribe (just $5 a month!). Just follow the link below. The MM newsletter is offered bi-weekly from now on and covers a variety of topics, though often that focus is on our region here in Tennessee. Subscription dues go toward paying the cost of supplies and activities for my free MM kids’ classes.
Check out the free sample today! These newsletters can be great to share with your kids and may even spark their interest in science!
Other important weather information will be shared when needed. This includes additional severe weather information, model data, drought info, hurricane info, and more. Many of these can be found as tabs to this page at any time.
