MM’s Wx Vlog
This Week’s Hazards
A few strong storms may be possible Wednesday night and Thursday morning with the passage of a strong cold front. The risk is low but not zero, as things look right now. I’ll keep an eye on it!
Five-Day Weather Forecast
Sunday – Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Light winds.
Wednesday: Increasing clouds and warm. Showers possible by afternoon, increasing in coverage overnight.
Thursday: Mainly morning showers. Turning cooler.
My thermometer dipped to 28 degrees ths morning but it’s in a colder spot. The Crossville Airport was 32 degrees at one point this morning. A warmup will begin tomorrow, ahead of our next storm system. The frontal passage Wednesday night could bring about 1/4-1/2 inch of rain, though models are trending drier with that front. Models show conditions being favorable for a few strong storms, so I’ll keep an eye on that.
On This Day
1980- A unusually warm spell sees temperatures climb to 91 at Nashville, 83 at Crossville — the highest temperatures ever observed on this date at either location.
1963 – Vajont Dam disaster, landslide creates an 800+ foot wave killing around 2,000 in the Piave Valley in Northern Italy.
This model run begins Wednesday morning and ends Friday morning. The front clears out in time for a beautiful weekend for the Bigfoot festival!
Drought conditions worsened over the past week for much of the state. Unfortunately, there continues to be no significant rainfall in sight, so drought conditions are liable to worsen even more over the coming week.
