Hazardous Weather Outlook For COFFEE County,TN

508 AM CDT Sun Sep 23 2018

 DAY ONE  Today and Tonight

Flash flooding may become an issue as some areas have already 
received 2 to 6 inches of rain since Friday. An additional 1 to 2
inches is possible today and tonight, and while there is low 
confidence on the exact location of the heaviest rain, training 
storms will increase the flooding risk.

 DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN  Monday through Saturday

The atmosphere is expected to become slightly more unstable on
Monday and Tuesday. More widespread thunderstorms may occur, a 
few of which could become strong with gusty winds.

The current wet period will last through Wednesday, and so the
ongoing threat of flooding remains. Rainfall totals from Sunday 
through Wednesday are expected to range from more than 1 inch along 
the Cumberland Plateau to in excess of 4 inches around Clarksville, 
Waverly and Land-between-the-Lakes. 

 SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT  

Spotter activation may become necessary for rainfall measurements
and flooding reports today through Wednesday.

The temperature at Yellowstone Park dipped to nine degrees below zero. It
was the coldest reading of record in the U.S. during September. Severe
freezes were widespread over the northwestern U.S. causing great crop
destruction. In Washington State, Spokane County experienced their earliest
snow of record. Harney Branch Experiment Station in Oregon reported a
temperature of 2 degrees above zero to establish a state record for the
month of September. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...1950...
A smoke pall from western Canada forest fires covered much of the eastern
U.S. Daylight was reduced to nighttime darkness in parts of the Northeast.
The color of the sun varied from pink to purple, blue, or lavendar. Yellow
to grey-tan was common. (24th-30th) (The Weather Channel)

of funnel clouds, one on the California side of the state line, and the
other on the Arizona side. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

most numerous in North Carolina. Golf ball size hail was reported at Tick
