This Week’s Hazards

Wx Summary

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be with us throughout our Sunday and Sunday night. Some of that rainfall could be heavy. A strong cold front pushes through by Monday morning, giving us a very fallish feal for the start of our workweek. Hopefully the clouds will break in time to give us some afternoon and/or evening sunshine. The rest of the week is looking mostly sunny and dry.

Five-Day Outlook

Weather Forecast

Sunday: Rain and thunderstorms likely. Some of the rainfall could be heavy.

Monday: Becoming partly cloudy. Cooler.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny and cooler. A taste of fall in the air.

Wednesday & Thurusday: Mostly sunny.

Severe Weather Safety 

Just be safe if you encounter an area of heavy rainfall. Our risk is low but not zero for flash flooding today and tonight.

1983- The temperature at Nashville reaches 100 degrees — the latest date ever for a 100 degree reading in Music City.

Past 24-Hour Precip Totals 

I love when you can make a good guess as to which direction the showers moved by looking at the rainfall measured. Notice the streaks in Kentucky from showers that were moving north.

Drought Outlook

The drought map is updated each Thursday, so this is the latest map. Drought conditions continue to improve across the state. Much of the state is now free from dry areas. For more drought info, please see my link at

Estimated population in drought Areas in TN this week = 16,377

Hurricane Forecast 

The tropics are unusually quiet for this time of year. We only have one area of disturbed weather to watch and it doesn’t even look too promising. If development occurs, it is expected to be very gradual. The average peak of activity during hurricane season occurs in this coming week of September, however, this year’s “peak week” is looking calm.
