Weather for the Week Ahead

Special Note

I’m trying a new way of doing the website forecast. On Sunday evenings you’ll get a weekly weather forecast for the week ahead. I’ll then update that forecast on Wednesday and give you a preview of the weekend forecast ahead. On Fridays I’ll update that weekend forecast and give you a preview of the beginning of that next week. I’ll continue to do weather history for each day and the weather statisics for each day on special tabs on the website. Daily weather stats can be found at and weather history can be found at

During times of inclement weather I will update frequently, just as I have in the past. So, if you get emails/app notifications from me other than on Sunday evenings or Wednesday and Friday mornings you now it’s something you need to check out. I will also do “Facebook lives” as needed during threatening weather. I also plan to do “Faceook live” sessions before rough weather hits, to give you all a chance to ask questions. Other colleagues of mine do these with great success and I think they could be very beneficial for us too!

Please “follow” the blog to get updates sent to your email inbox or download the free Android app.

As always, you can count on me to keep you informed! I’m proud to be your homegrown, hometown meteorologist for the plateau and I sure do thank you for following along!

TN population affected by drought last week: 4,614,652

TN population affected by drought this week: 3,961,995 (I’m not sure this was calculated correctly, as drought has spread to even more areas since last week.)
