MM’s 5-Day Forecast
Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday
On This Day
2017- The remnants of Hurricane Harvey move across Middle Tennessee from August 31 through September 2, producing strong winds, heavy rainfall, flooding, and a few tornadoes. Clarksville measures a 49 mph wind gust, while Nashville measures a 47 mph gust. Very heavy rainfall causes widespread flash flooding across several counties including the western and northern Nashville metro area. Numerous homes and cars are flooded, many roads are underwater including Interstate 40, and 30 water rescues are conducted. Greenbrier measures a total of 10.96″ of rain, Cedar Hill reports 10.67″, and 7.87″ falls in Goodlettsville. Four tornadoes also touch down across Middle Tennessee, the strongest being an EF-1 that damages several homes in the Bordeaux area of Nashville.
The tropics remain very active but none of these systems are a threat to the U.S. coastline. Idalia and Franklin will be swinging out to sea. Jose will have a short life, becoming a tropical storm this morning but dissipating by tomorrow. Both the red and yellow shaded areas of concern will also stay at sea. An active week in the tropics, for sure!
I’m so proud to be contracted with Crossville City Fire to provide critical weather support for emergency services!
