Hazardous Weather Outlook For VAN BUREN 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.

Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
SEPTEMBER 23RD HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS ...1815... One of the greatest hurricanes to strike New England made landfall at Long Island and crossed Massachusetts and New Hampshire. It was the worst tempest in nearly two hundred years, equal to the hurricane which struck in 1938, and one of a series of severe summer and autumn storms to affect shipping lanes that year. (David Ludlum) ...1904... The temperature at Charlotteburg NJ dipped to 23 degrees, the coldest reading of record for so early in the autumn for the state. (The Weather Channel) ...1983... A thunderstorm downburst caused a timber blowdown in the Kaibab National Forest north of the Grand Canyon. Two hundred acres were completely destroyed, and scattered destruction occurred across another 3300 acres. Many trees were snapped off 15 to 30 feet above ground level. (The Weather Channel) ...1987... Autumn began on a rather pleasant note for much of the nation. Showers and thunderstorms were confined to Florida and the southwestern deserts. Warm weather continued in the western U.S., and began to spread into the Great Plains Region, but even in the southwestern deserts readings remained below 100 degrees. (The National Weather Summary) ...1988... Thunderstorms developing along a cold front in the south central U.S. produced severe weather in Oklahoma during the afternoon and early evening hours. Thunderstorms produced softball size hail near Noble and Enterprise, and baseball size hail at Lequire and Kinta. A tornado near Noble OK destroyed a mobile home injuring one person. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) ...1989... Seventeen cities in the north central U.S. reported record low temperatures for the date, including Devils Lake ND with a reading of 22 degrees. Jackson KY reported a record low of 41 degrees during the late afternoon. Strong northwesterly winds ushering cold air into the central and northeastern U.S. gusted to 55 mph at Indianapolis IND. Winds along the cold front gusted to 65 mph at Norfolk VA, and thunderstorms along the cold front deluged Roseland NJ with 2.25 inches of rain in one hour. The temperature at Richmond VA plunged from 84 degrees to 54 degrees in two hours. Snow and sleet was reported at Binghamton NY. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary) ...2006... A slow-moving storm system brought torrential rains to Kentucky on September 22 and 23, 2006, resulting in widespread flooding. Eight people were killed in the state. It was the worst general flood since the March 1997 flood. It was the deadliest weather event in this area since seven people were killed in the flood of March 1-2, 1997, and the Super Outbreak of tornadoes on April 3, 1974 when 72 lives were lost.
