% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


OUTLOOK

Dry high pressure near the Great Lakes will move to near the Carolinas by Thursday continuing the slightly cooler temperatures. The high moves off the Carolina coast on Friday causing a return to above normal temperatures. Moisture increases over the weekend as a tropical low moves north from the Gulf bringing heavy rain to portions of the Southeast. Early next week, a cold front exits the Midwest and enhances rainfall for our region.

Vet’s Portrait Project for 2021 The Macon County Art Association in Franklin is pleased to announce that the Vet’s Portrait Project will be held this year. This will be our ninth year for this event. Unfortunately the pandemic precluded the project last year but the artists are ready to go for 2021. This year there are spots for 4-7 veterans as we had applications remaining from 2019. Please announce the call for Macon County Veterans or their family members to apply to have the Veteran’s portrait painted by one of our local artists. Vets or their families may apply at the gallery between Memorial Day and July 4th of this year. There is no cost to apply or for the portraits. The only requirement is that the Veteran or their family member be present to receive the portrait on Veterans Day November 11, 2021. Community members who wish to help support the costs for this program are also welcome. Contact the project chair by email at [email protected]

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Wed Jun 16 2021

For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center has issued the last advisory on Post- Tropical Cyclone Bill, located a couple hundred miles southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

1. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms continue over the Bay of Campeche and southern Mexico in association with a broad low pressure area. This system will move little during the next day or so, and little if any development is expected during that time due to interaction with land. However, the broad disturbance should begin to move northward on Thursday, and a tropical depression is likely to form by late Thursday or on Friday when the low moves across the western Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall will continue over portions of Central America and southern Mexico during the next several days. Heavy rains could also begin to affect portions of the northern Gulf Coast on Friday. Please consult products from your local meteorological service for more information.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.


Air quality is in the upper range of green for most of the county, with the ridges and other higher elevations today being in the middle range of yellow.
