A strong cold front will combine with just enough moisture to produce a chance for some light snow on Friday.

Yet another system will be monitored for Friday. Moisture continues to look very limited with that system, but I’ll keep an eye on it.

On This Day in Wx History

2002- A three-day flooding event across Middle Tennessee ends, with flooding reported in 39 of the mid state’s 42 counties. Two persons are killed in Cookeville on the 23rd during a rescue attempt. In Bedford County, a couple and their son are killed when their car is swept into Carr Creek during the evening of the 24th. A woman is killed at the Cedars of Lebanon State Park in Wilson County when she is swept away in a flooded creek. Overall, 6 people are killed, with another 11 injuries. A total of 97 homes are damaged, along with 37 businesses, and at least 34 bridges. Some 40 roads are damaged in Lawrence County alone. There are also numerous school and road closings, and 180 people have to be evacuated from their homes, 46 of them being placed in shelters. Rainfall totals during the three days are topped off by Wartrace, which measures 9.25″. Flooding also occurs along many rivers, with the Duck River at Columbia cresting more than 13 feet above flood stage. Damage is estimated at $2 million.

MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

This morning’s guidance continues to trend drier for our area on Tuesday. A snow flurry or two can’t be ruled out, but even that seems unlikely at this point. Most of the moisture should stay well south of Tennessee.

Yet another system will be monitored for Friday. Moisture continues to look very limited with that system too, but I’ll keep an eye on it.

On This Day in Wx History

1963- Temperature at Kingston Springs drops to -30 degrees, which is the lowest temperature ever recorded in Middle Tennessee, and comes within 2 degrees of tying the all-time record low for Tennessee (Mountain City, 12/30/1917). Other record lows include Clarksville (-17), Dover (-24), Lafayette (-20), Linden (-18), Portland (-19), Springfield (-18), and Waverly (-26). In fact, Waverly sees its temperature drop by 80 degrees with the passage of the strongest cold front in mid state history. Five inches of snow accompany the dramatic change in temperature. The Duck River freezes solid from bank to bank for the first time since 1898. Harbors along the Tennessee River also freeze. It is considered the worst winter weather since the 1951 ice storm.

1997- A rare winter severe weather outbreak results in at least seven tornadoes across Middle Tennessee, injuring 31 persons and causing damage in excess of $9 million. Amazingly, there are no fatalities. Barfield, near Murfreesboro, is hit by an F-4.

MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

Guidance continues to trend drier for s on Tuesday. That system will likely go to far to our south to be of any consequence to our area.

Yet another system will be monitored for Friday. Right now, moisture looks very limited with that system, but I’ll keep an eye on it.

On This Day in Wx History

1963- The strongest cold front in mid state history brings heavy snow and an unprecedented drop in temperature. Nashville receives 6.2″ of snow. In addition, the high temperature reaches 48 degrees, but plummets to -13 degrees by midnight, for a range of 61 degrees! This is the greatest daily range of temperatures in Nashville’s history.

2016- A major two-day snowstorm dumps several inches of snow across nearly all of Middle Tennessee, mainly on January 22. Nashville measures 8″, the third highest January snowfall on record. Other snow totals include 10″ at Springfield, 13.5″ near Lafayette, and 15″ near Jamestown.
