Sunshine is returning this afternoon, but clouds and rain are not far away in the forecast.

By Fred Gossage | March 6, 2024

Clouds are starting to break across the area this afternoon. We’re not fully sunny by any means, but we are starting to see some patches of blue sky and sunshine, and this is allowing temperatures to warm into the mid to upper 60s in many places. A few locations down in north Alabama, such as […]

Unsettled weather this week with multiple rain & storm chances.

By Kelli Rosson | March 4, 2024

It’s been a mostly cloudy morning for *most* of the Tennessee Valley this morning. Some of our western counties have seen sunshine, and they broke into the 70s a while ago! I do expect mostly cloudy conditions to continue this afternoon, but if there are any breaks in the clouds, it’s going to feel much […]

A look at March climatology in the Tennessee Valley, as well as a look back at February rainfall stats

By Fred Gossage | March 2, 2024

A new month means a look at that month’s climatology here in our part of the Tennessee Valley, but we also like to begin by looking back at the previous month’s rainfall stats in our area. Within our viewing area, the only NWS climate-record-keeping type reporting stations we have are located on the Alabama side […]

Lightning Safety – Severe Weather Awareness Week

By Fred Gossage | February 27, 2024

Severe Weather Awareness Week continues here at Tennessee Valley Weather, and today’s topic is Lightning Safety. Because of the simple definition of what a thunderstorm is, lightning is a concern with EVERY thunderstorm, whether it is severe warned or not. While the parent storm probably won’t strike without warning, individual lightning bolts are random and […]

Flooding and Flood Safety – Severe Weather Awareness Week

By Fred Gossage | February 26, 2024

This week has been deemed as Severe Weather Awareness Week for the state of Tennessee. Alabama’s SWAW was at the beginning of the month (for the first time ever, and that’s why we weren’t fully ready LOL). This is a week set aside every year just before the heart of the spring severe weather season […]

Warm and breezy today. Wet weather returns Thursday. Cooler to end the week. Big warmup next week.

By Fred Gossage | February 21, 2024

Quiet weather is still in place early this Thursday morning across the Tennessee Valley with high pressure still firmly entrenched across the Southeast. Temperatures are mostly between the mid to upper 30s and the lower 40s this morning, although the sheltered valley areas around Pulaski, Lewisburg, and Hohenwald have slipped down just below freezing, making […]

Mostly quiet this week. Warming trend ahead. Rain chance by Thursday.

By Fred Gossage | February 19, 2024

It’s a beautiful, cloud-free day on this Monday across the Tennessee Valley! Temperatures have made it up into the mid to upper 50s this afternoon. The closest unsettled weather we have is a frontal boundary over the Plains that won’t get here until Thursday and then showery weather off the Southeast coast that is moving […]

Burst of winter temps are here… but not for long!

By Ben Luna | February 17, 2024

That title is no joke, either – if you’ve had the misfortune of stepping outside today, it feels downright offensive compared to the comparatively sweltering weather we’ve had over the last several days, with the 60s being a mainstay since earlier in the week. With daytime highs in the upper-30s and sharp winds today, on […]
