Five-Day Outlook

Forecast Discussion

Our week will continue to feature mostly sunny skies, once these Monday morning clouds move out. Temps could drop low enough to lead to patchy frost tonight and Tuesday night. Models have been trending cooler with end-of-the-week temps, which could lead to our first widespread frost of the season by Friday or Saturday night. Dry conditions continue, with no measureable precip in sight.

Drought Outlook 

As expected, drought conditions worsened over the past week. Unfortunately, rainfall from Ian did not reach any of Middle and West Tennessee, so drought conditions are liable to worsen even more over the coming week.

Another area of low pressure is moving toward the Caribbean (orange-shaded region). At this time, that system does not look to threaten the U.S., though it is too early to know for sure. I’ll keep an eye on it!

Rocket Launch Update

Hurricane Ian really took a toll on the rocket launch schedule. The good news is that the Space Coast seems to have weathered the storm well, thanks to lots of good preparation. The bad news is that I can no longer attend the launch of this particular rocket. BUT, I will be back down there sooner than later. I’ll keep you posted!

Update: The NASA Social folks reached out to me yesterday and said that I get priority for the next one!
