Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday
On This Day
1954- An arid air mass produces some rarely observed temperature ranges across the mid state. At Crossville, the morning low of 44 degrees sets a record for this date. The temperature subsequently rises to 90 during the afternoon — just 2 degrees off the record high. At Nashville, a 40-degree difference between high (95) and low (55) is observed.
1935 – Perhaps the most intense hurricane ever to hit the U.S. struck the Florida Keys with 200 mph winds. The hurricane produced a fifteen foot tide and waves thirty feet high. Four hundred persons perished in the storm on that Labor Day. The barometric pressure at Matecumbe Bay, Florida, hits a record low for the U.S. of 26.35 inches.
The tropics remain active but the only potential area of concern for the U.S. is the disturbance headed into the red-shaded region. That vigourous disturbance has moved off the coast of Africa and is one to watch over the next 7-10 days.
I’m so proud to be contracted with Crossville City Fire to provide critical weather support for emergency services!
