MM’s 5-Day Forecast
Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday
On This Day
1897 – Hailstone drifts six feet deep were reported in Washington County, Iowa.
1979- A home in Centerville is hit by lightning and completely destroyed. It marks the third time the house has been hit by lightning since being built in 1970.
1995- An Estill Springs man sustains minor injuries as he sits outside on his patio. Lightning strikes a nearby tree and runs through the ground, then up the legs of the metal chair. He suffers a stiff neck and shoulders, and temporary memory loss.
The tropics remain very active but much of this activity is moving out to sea. Idalia, Gert, Jose, and Franklin will all move farther out to sea over the weekend. The red-shaded area of interest east of Africa will also spin out to sea.
The orange-shaded region is one to watch, as much of the guidance shows a track toward the U.S. over the next 7-10 days. It’s something to watch.
I’m so proud to be contracted with Crossville City Fire to provide critical weather support for emergency services!
