MM’s 5-Day Forecast

Yesterday’s Weather Statistics

Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday

On This Day  

2005- Remnants of Hurricane Katrina move into Middle Tennessee. Nashville measures 1.97″ of rainfall. Clarksville records 2.07 inches, while Crossville receives 0.99 inches. Winds gust as high as 40 miles an hour at all three locations.

1839 – A hurricane moved from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, to offshore New England. An unusual feature of the hurricane was the snow it helped produce, which whitened the Catskill Mountains of New York State. Considerable snow was also reported at Salem, New York. Unseasonably cold air was drawn in from the north, turning precip on the backside of the storm to snow! Hrurciane Sandy in 2012 produced snow on its backside across the Applachian Mountains as it moved north.

Tropics

Hurricane Idalia will stay far enough to our south to prevent us from getting any rainfall. We will, however, get some clouds from it and those can be seen in our skies today.

The tropics remain very active, but no other system is a threat to the U.S. All the other systems will stay out to sea.

Emergency Services

I’m so proud to be contracted with Crossville City Fire to provide critical weather support for emergency services!

Have a great day and keep lookin’ up!
