Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Clarksville, Tennessee

Instead of the last train, we’re just going to take a car to Clarksville. This will only be a day trip, lasting nearly 9 hours and covering 553 miles. Our pace will be 63.1mph, and our mood will be “good”.

The weather this week is going to be very active, and even through the day Wednesday, a system will be churning through the Great Lakes, bringing snow and clouds, and another wave will be developing in the Lower Mississippi Valley and will be producing some thunderstorms later on this week. For our drive, though? Nothing. It’s going to be a great trip, and we will only need to worry about a few clouds infiltrating Clarksville just as we arrive.

Still dry in Tennessee

An area of low pressure moved from the northern Bahamas and moved into the Carolinas. It is presently bringing more rain to the east, areas that certainly do not need it. The clouds moved into western Tennessee and kept temperatures from dropping off as expected in Clarksville. It stayed predominantly dry there, but there was a 10 minute report of drizzle very early in the morning. This gave The Weather Service and Weatherbug the victory, edging past a very good temperature forecast from Accuweather. Right now, and ever since that pre-dawn spritz, Clarksville has been dry.
Actuals: Sunday – High 79, Low 48
Monday – Drizzle reported, not measured, High 81, Low 58

Clarksville, Tennessee

The weather is finally beginning to move east. I might have to think about this forecast!

At 1252PM, CT, Clarksville was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 75 degrees. Strong ridging was still in place, and wonderful weather was the name of the game for the eastern half of the country.
There is a deep trough west of the area that is triggering a strong line of thunderstorms. The ridge, however, will provide too much of a barrier, causing that instability to fall apart over the Mississippi Valley. The tropics will be monitored for a developing system over the Bahamas, which will begin to slide its way into the Carolinas, and by the end of the day Monday, it may bring an isolated cloud or two to Clarksville.
Tomorrow – Sunny, High 80, Low 49
Monday – Mostly sunny, High 82, Low 53

TWC: Tomorrow – Except for a few afternoon clouds, mainly sunny. Hgh 83, Low 48
Monday – Partly cloudy High 84, Low 51

AW: Tomorrow – Partly sunny and nice High 80, Low 48
Monday – Mostly sunny and nice High 81, Low 53

NWS: Tomorrow – Sunny, High 80, Low 51
Monday – A 20 percent chance of showers. Mostly sunny, High 81, Low 53

WB: Tomorrow – Mostly sunny. High 80, Low 51
Monday – Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers. High 80, Low 54

I’m a little stunned that the Weather Service and Weatherbug are actually calling for rain. It’s been such an unfavorable time for showers to develop, I can’t see it happening without a stronger pattern. Satellite shows strong storms to the west, nothing for Clarksville.

Clarksville, Tennessee

We’re on the last train to Clarksville with today’s forecast for the city off to the northwest of Nashville. They sure like their ‘villes in Tennessee, don’t they?

At 1152AM, CT, Clarksville was reporting a temperature of 91 degrees with clear skies. The entire region was in a heat advisory with heat indexes climbing to near triple digits as dew points were about 70 degrees. The entire southeast was under high pressure, and Tropical Storm Bonnie was closing flow to he north, keeping places rain free.
The upper level jet still rode well to the north of Tennessee. A trough at the back edge of the jet was trying to dip south, but it didn’t have much strength, and laminar flow will likely continue to dominate. What does this mean for Clarksville? Not much change. Continued hot and humid weather with no major storm systems are on their way. By Sunday afternoon, Bonnie’s influence will be mitigated and southerly flow off the Gulf will return, bringing with it some isolated showers and storms for central and eastern Tennessee.
Tomorrow – Sunny, hot and humid, High 98, Low 72
Sunday – Partly to mostly cloudy with some late showers and storms, High 96, Low 74

TWC: Tomorrow – A mainly sunny sky. Near record high temperatures. High 99, Low 73
Sunday – Partly cloudy, chance of a thunderstorm. High 96, Low 76

AW: Tomorrow – Mostly sunny, hot and humid High 101, low 70
Sunday – Partly sunny with a thunderstorm High 96, Low 73

NWS: Tomorrow – Sunny and hot High 98, Low 73
Sunday – A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, High 94, low 74

WB: Tomorrow – Mostly sunny, High 99, Low 73
Sunday – Partly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms, High 94, Low 74

That is steamy. Looks like, as usual, Accuweather is going for the most sensational forecast possible. A look at the satellite shows how cloud free the southeast is. Rare to see this kind of clarity.
