Weather Aware Times
Wind Advisory Tonight & Wednesday
A powerful storm system is forecast to bring wind and rain to the area Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Winds could gust over 55 mph, which will likely cause disruptions to power across the plateau. Saturated grounds could easily cause shallow-rooted trees to fall. Secure any outdoor loose items. Park vehicles away from trees with limbs that might fall.
Wednesday Night & Thursday
Light snow is likely Wednesday night and Thursday. Light accumulation looks likely. I will continue to monitor this closely.

The sun should bright today, as temps rise to the mid to upper 40s. The calm before the next storm system…
Tuesday night the bottom drops out, as winds increase dramatically and rain moves in. Strong southerly winds will gust to over 50 mph. The rain tapers off Wednesday morning, but strong winds continue through the day and night. As we get into Wednesday night, moisture turns to snow showers. Those snow showers are expected to persist through Thursday and into the night, leading to some possible light accumulation, especially on the western edge of the plateau.
At this time, skies look mostly cloudy and temps look chilly for Friday. More sunshine and warmer temps are expected for Saturday, as it will likely be much like today’s weather.

On This Day
1963- Temperature at Kingston Springs drops to -30 degrees, which is the lowest temperature ever recorded in Middle Tennessee, and comes within 2 degrees of tying the all-time record low for Tennessee (Mountain City, 12/30/1917). Other record lows include Clarksville (-17), Dover (-24), Lafayette (-20), Linden (-18), Portland (-19), Springfield (-18), and Waverly (-26). In fact, Waverly sees its temperature drop by 80 degrees with the passage of the strongest cold front in mid state history. Five inches of snow accompany the dramatic change in temperature. The Duck River freezes solid from bank to bank for the first time since 1898. Harbors along the Tennessee River also freeze. It is considered the worst winter weather since the 1951 ice storm.
I’m working on a big announcement that I will be able to make soon! I think you all are going to be, like me, very excited! Stay tuned!
