    level as dry high pressure
    continues to build across the

    Service says low humidity
    values and gusty winds have
    increased the wildfire risk
    across the area. Burn bans

    burning is prohibited in
    these counties. The month
    of September finished as

    in the city of Nashville. Local
    weather data collection
    started around 1940 and the
    driest September recorded
    took place in 1956, when

    date, the city of Nashville
    has collected 49.65 inches of
    rain, well above the normal
    38 inches.
