MM’s 5-Day Forecast
Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday
If you look closely, you’ll notice western and northwest portions of Cumberland County picked up some good rainfall yesterday. I picked up close to an inch at my house in northwest Cumberland County.
On This Day
1902 – In Australia, the whole nation observes a ‘day of humiliation’ and prays for rain, as a terrible drought kills livestock and threatens crops; rain begins to appear on 10 September.
1925- A late-summer heat wave brings the hottest temperature ever recorded in Middle Tennessee to date as Clarksville observes a reading of 112 degrees. (The record high for the entire state of Tennessee is 113 (Perryville, 8/9/1930)).
1970 – A lightning bolt struck a group of football players at Gibbs High School in Saint Petersburg, Florida, killing two persons and injuring 22 others. All the 38 players and four coaches were knocked off their feet.
Hurricane Lee is a cat 1 this morning but will likely rapidly intensify this evening and tonight. The storm is expected to make a run for cat 5 status by the weekend. The storm is expected to stay off the coast of the U.S., as it turns out to sea. However, it is a storm worth watching very closely and the track could change.
I’m so proud to be contracted with Crossville City Fire to provide critical weather support for emergency services!
