Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
August Statistics for Middle TN
Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday
On This Day
1939 – A thunderstorm deluged Washington D.C. with 4.4 inches of rain in two hours. September of that year was very dry across much of the nation, and Washington D.C. received more rain in that two hour period than most other places in the country that entire month.
1970 – The greatest natural disaster of record for Arizona occurred. Unprecedented rains caused rivers in central Arizona to rise five to ten feet per hour, sweeping cars and buildings as far as 30 to 40 miles downstream. Flooding claimed the lives of 23 persons, mainly campers, and caused millions of dollars damage. Water crested 36 feet above normal near Sunflower, Arizona. Workman’s Creek was deluged with 11.40 inches of rain in 24 hours to establish a state record. Moisture from Pacific Tropical Storm Norma led to the severe flooding.
The tropics are very active but only the disturbance in the red-shaded region demands our attention at this time. That will likely become our next named storm of the season. The end of that red-shaded cone is where the system will be by this time next week. Hopefully it curves out to sea.
The next named storm will be “Lee.”
