Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1989 – Hurricane Hugo quickly lost strength over South Carolina, but still was a tropical storm as it crossed into North Carolina, just west of Charlotte, at about 7 AM. Winds around Charlotte reached 69 mph, with gusts to 99 mph. Eighty percent of the power was knocked out to Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Property damage in North Carolina was 210 million dollars, and damage to crops was 97 million dollars. The strongest storm surge occurred along the southern coast shortly after midnight, reaching nine feet above sea level at ocean Isle and Sunset Beach. Hugo killed one person and injured fifteen others in North Carolina.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  108° at El Centro & Palm Springs, California

Low:   19° at Peter Sinks, Utah 

Tropics 

The tropics remain active but the only area of interest to the US is the system that will likely become Tropical Storm Sam today. That system is expected to evolve into a major hurricane by Monday night. Hopefully, the storm will curve on out to sea, but it certainly bears watching.

Sun & Moon 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

Fall has certainly arrived in the South! After some patchy morning fog, look for abundant sunshine and pleasant afternoon high temps. Much of the state will be in the mid to upper 60s for much of the day.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

Some might classify tonight’s low temps as “chilly.” Under starry skies and a nearly-full moon, overnight lows will fall into the 40s across the state. Watch for some patchy fog by daybreak.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

More sunshine awaits us for Friday. Afternoon highs will be a bit warmer than on Thursday, but continued pleasant. Much of the state will see highs climb to near 70 degrees, with West Tennessee climbing into the mid to upper 70s.

Special Note

Many of you know that I mentor in the Kids on the Rise program in Cumberland County. I have two teenage boys and one them lost the grandmother who was raising him this past weekend. She passed away from covid. We will be honoring her life at Liberty Baptist Church on Saturday, Sept. 25th, at 11:00 for anyone who is interested in coming to that service. Lunch will be provided afterwards for those who are interested. We want to celebrate the life of Thelma Haney, while showing Michael (and his sister Abby) how very much they are loved and supported. I am also very glad to say that they have both since been placed (together) with an absolutely wonderful foster family right here in Cumberland County. Prayers answered, for sure!

You all have a great day and keep lookin’ up!

1983- Temperature at Nashville drops to 36 degrees, tying the record low for the month. Crossville’s low of 33 degrees ties the record low for the month.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  107° at both Death Valley & Brawley, California

Tropics 

The tropics are active but there are no immediate threats to the US. Let’s hope it stays that way! Both Peter and Rose have weakened to depressions, as they spin out to sea. The orange-shaded region will be destroyed by strong upper-level winds by the weekend. The only area to watch is the red-shaded region, which has a long journey before it gets to any land. I’ll keep you posted.

Sun & Moon 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

Showers and thunderstorms gradually move east. Skies clear in the west. Breezy. Afternoon highs will be in the 60s where there’s more clouds and rain, and near 70 where there’s more sunshine expected.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

Skies continue to clear from west to east. Continued breezy. Overnight lows will fall into the 40s for much of the state.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Abundant sunshine fills the skies for Thursday! Afternoon highs will be in the low to mid 70s for West Tennessee, with mid to upper 60s expected elsewhere.

Tropics 

The tropics remain very active! Thankfully, both Peter and Rose will spin out to sea and away from the US. The orange-shaded region is the remnants of Odette trying to re-organize. That should also stay at sea. The red-shaded area will need to be watched, but we have plenty of time to do just that!

Sun & Moon 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

A strong cold front making its way across the state over the next 24 hours will bring numerous showers and thunderstorms to the region. Some of the rainfall could be heavy and a few of the storms could be on the strong side. Afternoon highs will top out near 80 degrees.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

The passing cold front will continue to produce showers and thunderstorms into the night. Again, some of that rainfall could be heavy and a few of the storms could be strong. Overnight lows will fall to near 60 degrees.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Rain and clouds will gradually clear out from west to east on Wednesday. Afternoon highs will generally be around 70 degrees statewide, with cooler temperatures expected on the Cumberland Plateau.
