More Rain Coming

The Christ Tabernacle Singers, from Brooklyn, New York will be our guests at Trinity Assembly in Algood, TN today. Make plans to join us for either the 8:30 or 10:30 service this morning. If you can't be there in person, check us out LIVE on the web. See you there....

Rain continues to be in our forecast today as another low tracks northward through Tennessee. There is an outside chance for a thunderstorm or two. Highs will be in the middle 70's for this Sunday.

If you're interested, here is the Tennessee Titans weather forecast, as well as a forecast for every team in the NFL for today.

The week ahead forecast has, YOU GUESSED IT, rain in it every single day. At one-time last week, I mentioned a BIG COOL DOWN coming, but it is, for now, not in the plans. Fall will arrive, but the temperatures will be a bit warm for this time of year.

Weather History for This Date

…1908: A devastating hurricane struck the Louisiana coast, coming ashore 50 miles west of New Orleans, near Houma around 8pm. The hurricane was as intense as the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 with a central pressure of 931 mb. 350 people were killed as a large section of the Louisiana coast was inundated. Storm surge reached 15 feet in the Timbalier Bay area.

…1974: As Hurricane Fifi tracked along the north coast of Honduras, the Category Two hurricane resulted in disastrous flooding that killed over 8,000 people. Up to twenty four inches of rain fell on the moitainous terrain causing incredible flooding an dlandslides. Choloma, Honduras was struck by a huge mudslide at dusk on this date. The mudslide formed a dam that trapped the raging flood waters. When the dam finally burst, the flood waters devastated the city. About 2,800 people or half the town’s population perished in the tragedy.

…1998: Hurricane Georges reached peak intensity as a strong category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph and a central pressure of 937 mb about 300 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Georges would go onto kill over 600 people in the Caribbean, eventually making landfall on the U.S. Gulf Coast in Mississippi.

…2005: Hurricane Rita intensified rapidly as it passed through the Florida Straits about 50 miles south of Key West. A storm surge of up to five feet affected the Keys, overwashing US-1 in some locations. It was the beginning of an astounding intensification that saw the storm deepen from a Category Two to a Category Five storm in twenty four hours. The central pressure in the storm would drop from 965 millibars to 897 millibars in twenty four hours.
