MM’s 5-Day Forecast

Yesterday’s Weather Statistics

On This Day

1935- Temperature at Nashville reaches 85, setting a record high for the month.

1966- A rare, early-season snowstorm strikes the mid state, as Nashville ties its record for greatest one-day snowfall for November, measuring 7.2″. Crossville measured exactly 7″ at the airport. According to records, this is the only time it has ever snowed significantly on this day on the plateau.

Nation’s Current Snowfall Depth

Today’s Jetstream

Jet streams are relatively narrow bands of strong wind in the upper levels of the atmosphere, typically occurring around 30,000 feet in elevation. Within jet streams, the winds blow from west to east, but the band often shifts north and south because jet streams follow the boundaries between hot and cold air. Since these hot and cold air boundaries are most pronounced in winter, jet streams are the strongest during both the northern and southern hemisphere winters.

This map moves in 6-hr increments, beginning at 7:00 a.m. this morning. The brighter the reds, the stronger the winds at 30,000 feet.

Drought Monitor

The Drought Monitor is updated each Thursday. The map below was updated on Thursday, October 26. Drought continues to intensify across the state. (This map will be updated later this morning.)
