This Week’s Hazards

Severe weather is not expected for the next five days.

Just be safe with outdoor burning (where it’s allowed), as conditions continue to get drier.

Five-Day Outlook

Five-Day Weather Forecast 

Friday: Mostly sunny.

Saturday: Partly cloudy. Clouds increase later in the day. Chance showers after midnight.

Sunday: Scattered showers. 

Halloween: Mostly cloudy, with a chance for showers.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy and mild.

Forecast Discussion 

Unfortunately, the trend has been for the weekend system to be drier. Hopefully that will change, but it’s now looking like we might just get about half an inch of rain. I’ll keep monitoring that.

A deep trough is forecast to develop next week across the western US. This could lead to unsettled weather for us in 7-10 days. Severe storms are expected across the central US with this trough by the end of next week. I’ll have to watch that as it moves eastward.



On This Day 

1957- A cold wave brings record low temperatures to the mid state. Nashville observes a reading of 28 degrees. Crossville drops to 20.

1987 – Thunderstorms over the San Joaquin Valley of California produced three-quarters of an inch of rain in thirty minutes at Placerville, and caused numerous power outages due to lightning. 

1904 – St Louis police try a new investigation method – fingerprints.


Drought Outlook 

Drought conditions continue to worsen across the state. Rainfall over the next seven days will likely do little to help.

TN population affected by drought last week: 3,482,576
