Today’s Stats

Almanac for Yesterday

While the airport recorded a little over an inch of rain, I recorded just shy of three inches at my house in northern Cumberland County. Still, that 1.15 inches at the airport is a new daily record for Crossville for September 18.

On This Day in Wx History

1954- One of the hottest summers on record continues its strangle-hold on the Midstate. Nashville’s high hits 97 degrees, Crossville gets to 93.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  106° at both Mecca & Stovepipe Wells, California

Low:   20° at Walden, Colorado & West Yellowstone, Montana 

Tropics 

The only concern in the tropics is Tropical Storm Peter. That system became named this morning. Thankfully, it currently looks like Peter will stay away from the US, but it seems to be eyeing Bermuda, as so many systems do.

MM’s Wx Concerns

With so many outdoor activities planned for this time of year, it’s always a good idea to review lightning safety information. Remember, if you can hear it thunder you are close enough to be struck by lightning. Keep in mind heavy downpours the next several days could lead to localized flash flooding.

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1926 – The great “”Miami Hurricane”” produced winds reaching 138 mph which drove ocean waters into the Biscayne Bay drowning 135 persons. The eye of the hurricane passed over Miami, at which time the barometric pressure reached 27.61 inches. Tides up to twelve feet high accompanied the hurricane, which claimed a total of 372 lives.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  106° at both Death Valley & Rio Grande Village, Texas

Low:   11° at both Choteau, Montana & Stanley, Idaho 

Tropics 

The tropics remain interesting. Tropical Storm Odette is moving out to sea, while two more areas will need to be watched. The orange-shaded region looks to be the least of the threats, as it aims northward into open ocean waters. That red-shaded area will likely become Tropical Storm Peter by the end of the weekend. That one will need to be tracked.

MM’s Wx Concerns

If you have outdoor plans this weekend, be safe around any lightning! Also, any storm that develops could produce torrential rainfall. Be safe if out driving and caught in one of these storms.

Hay Weather Forecast 

The hay weather forecast is looking great by Thursday! Just hold on! 🙂

Today’s Stats

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1912- According to one newspaper account, “A terrific windstorm struck Northeastern Montgomery County, Tennessee, and Southeastern Todd County, Kentucky, yesterday afternoon, destroying five residences and six tobacco barns. Total loss in this section, $75,000. A flock of several hundred sparrows was blown again[st] a wall and killed.”

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  109° at Ocotillo Wells, California

Low:   23° at both Peter Sinks, Utah &  Stanley, Idaho

Tropics 

The tropics remain active but we continue to have no immediate threats to the US. Both of the red-shaded regions are expected to become tropical storms this weekend. Neither appear to be a threat to the mainland, though the one between the US and Africa can’t be completely dismissed just yet. The remnants of Nicholas continue to hang out over Louisiana.

Sun & Moon 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

A very warm and humid airmass will lead to scattered showers and thunderstorms across the state today, especially in the afternoon and evening. Rain chances are set at about 50% for West and Middle Tennessee, dropping to around 30% for East Tennessee. Any storm that develops could produce heavy rainfall. Clouds and increased rain chances should keep afternoon highs in the low to mid 80s.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

Rain chances drop off a bit for the night to around 30%. Otherwise, look for mostly cloudy skies and humid overnight lows around 70 degrees.

The Weekend’s Tennessee Weather 

Unsettled weather continues into the weekend, with both Saturday and Sunday featuring partly to mostly cloudy skies across the state and scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially in the afternoons and evenings. Look for afternoon highs each day to be in the low to mid 80s statewide. If you have outdoor plans, keep an eye to the sky and be ready to seek shelter from nearby lightning.

Today’s Stats

Almanac for Yesterday

On This Day in Wx History

1928 – Hurricane San Felipe, a monster hurricane, which left 600 dead in Guadeloupe, and 300 dead in Puerto Rico, struck West Palm Beach, Florida causing enormous damage, and then headed for Lake Okeechobee. When the storm was over, the lake covered an area the size of the state of Delaware, and beneath its waters were 2000 victims. The only survivors were those who reached large hotels for safety, and a group of fifty people who got onto a raft to take their chances out in the middle of the lake.

1988 – Hurricane Gilbert moved ashore into Mexico. The hurricane established an all-time record for the western hemisphere with a barometric reading of 26.13 inches. Winds approached 200 mph, with higher gusts. Gilbert devastated Jamaica and the Yucatan Peninsula. Hurricane Gilbert made landfall 120 miles south of Brownsville, Texas during the early evening. Winds gusted to 61 mph at Brownsville, and reached 82 mph at Padre Island. Six foot tides eroded three to four feet off beaches along the Lower Texas Coast, leaving the waterline seventy-five feet farther inland. Rainfall totals ranged up to 8.71 inches at Lamar, Texas. Gilbert caused three million dollars damage along the Lower Texas Coast, but less than a million dollars damage along the Middle Texas Coast.

Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes

High:  111° at Death Valley, California

Low:   23° at Yellowstone, Wyoming 

Tropics 

The tropics remain interesting but we still have no immediate threats to the U.S. That red-shaded region east of Africa will need to be watched, but we have many days to do that.

Sun & Moon 

Today’s Tennessee Weather 

A warm and humid Thursday will lead to a few showers and thunderstorms across the state today. Rain chances are lowest across the northwest, where only a 20% chance of rain exists. Elsewhere, rain chances vary from 30%-40%, with the highest likelihood of that rain coming in the afternoon and early evening hours. Afternoon highs will climb into the low to mid 80s statewide.

Tonight’s Tennessee Weather

A few evening lingering showers are expected across the Cumberland Plateau and southeast Tennessee. Otherwise, look for clear to partly cloudy skies overnight, with lows in the mid to upper 60s statewide.

Tomorrow’s Tennessee Weather 

Rain chances increase to about 50% across the state for Friday. Those scattered showers and thunderstorms will be most prevalent in the afternoon and evening hours. It will be another muggy day. Clouds and increased rain chances will keep afternoon highs in the lower 80s.
