MM’s Local Weather Concerns:
STORMS: A slow-moving frontal system will continue to bring the risk for t-storms today, some of which could be severe. The main risk continues to be damaging winds. Always be mindful of that lightning, as well. If you’re close enough to hear thunder, you’re close enough to be struck.
Today’s threats are very similar to Saturday’s. The difference today is that instability isn’t as high as it was Saturday. Another big difference is that the front coming through should kick off numerous showers and storms. The slow-moving nature of this system will limit the damaging wind threat, but it’s not a zero threat.
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has highlighted our region in the MARGINAL RISK for severe storms again today.

MM’s 5-Day Forecast
Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday
Yesterday’s rain fell all around the Cumberland Plateau region.
On This Day
1992- Middle Tennessee is hit by three F-0 tornadoes. Four people are injured near Lewisburg. (Remnants of “Andrew”).
1893 – The first of three great hurricanes that year struck South Carolina drowning more than 1000 persons in a tidal surge at Charleston.
1964 – Hurricane Cleo battered Miami and the South Florida area. It was the first direct hit for Miami in fourteen years. Winds gusted to 135 mph, and the hurricane caused 125 million dollars damage.
The tropical depression that demands the attention of those on the Gulf is now forecast to become a hurricane by Tuesday. There is still uncertainty concerning the ultimate strength of the storm at landfall, but there is the possibility for a strong hurricane to impact Florida this week. Stay tuned.
Depending on the eventual track, this system could bring us some showers. We are not expecting any type of severe weather here on the plateau from this system.
This is 5-day forecast rainfall amounts. It now looks like the tropical system will take an eastward track that keeps most, if not all, of the rainfall east of our area. The rain you see on our area is mainly from Sunday – Monday rainfall.
