CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Following more than a week of record heat, forecasters from The National Weather Service say Clarksville will get a significant amount of rain over the next week from a cold front that will stall out.
The system is expected to soak Tennessee as well as Kentucky, the Carolinas and Virginia and possibly change the current drought status.
Brittany Whitehead with the National Weather Service in Nashville told Clarksvillenow.com, “The drought outlook isn’t officially updated until Thursday, so until then we are in Moderate to Severe Drought Status.”
The 7-Day forecast has a 30 to 50% chance of rain every day, Whitehead said it should bring 2 to 4” of rainfall to the Mid State area.
“We expect the drought status to change but to what degree is uncertain, based on rainfall amounts. The last reading showed us in Nashville at 7” below normal rainfall. Some areas are 10” below normal,” she said.
Even better news is that temperatures will be slightly below normal, offering some welcome relief from the scorching heat that started the month.
