It 100% humidity today! Doing some yard work and I think I sweated out the cold ultras from last night. Going to sip another will mowing on the Steel horse. Then jump in the pool. Hoping storms wait to come in late this evening after we grill of course! Hope everyone has a great Weekend!😎

Flooding yesterday in Arlington. Got about 3-4 inches of rain in 30 minutes- ridiculous.

A heavy storm literally washed my garden away Thursday. (It's on a bit of a slope...but this is the first time that's ever happened.) Another heavy storm yesterday and on-and-off rain all day today. The heavy rain has been spotty and isolated, so it won't go down as a rainfall surplus or even raise streamflows a great deal, but I'm ready for some consistently dry weather!  :o

Only about 0.60" here so far, but showers should continue tonight. The first 100 degree temps are showing up on the GFS around the 18th. Been there for a few runs now.

There was nearly 3" of rain in the rain gauge at my job site in Polk county, so at least some of the area got significant drought relief from this event. Storm total IMBY was only 0.70" though.

While there clearly isn't much going on to report I've got a question for the forum about submitting spotter reports.  I did a course last spring to be a trained spotter and over the weekend passed the test for my Technician class HAM license (not on the air yet as I'm waiting for the license to show up in the FCC database).  Yesterday my fancy new HT radios showed up from Amazon.

Does anybody know the best repeater to use to contact NWS MRX with spotter reports?  Being in Knoxville and operating with a handheld I won't be able to call them directly, but we've got good repeaters all over East TN.  I've got lots to learn about radio operations, but thought that getting an idea of how to call in tspotter reports would be a good first step.  Thanks in advance for the help; I'm hoping to test for General in early July and then start learning about ARES and RACES operations.

This link, http://www.srh.noaa.gov/mrx/?n=skywarn_page, says that MRX has a setup where they can hear HAM reports over the airwaves in real time.

It also has the email address of MRX's WCM. He should be able to answer any questions you have too.

DAY 4-8 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK 
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0341 AM CDT FRI JUN 10 2016

   VALID 131200Z - 181200Z

   ...DISCUSSION...
   WITHIN A WEAKER SOUTHERN BRANCH OF SPLIT MID-LATITUDE
   WESTERLIES...THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS SUGGEST THAT A CLOSED LOW MAY
   PROGRESS OUT OF THE SOUTHERN INTERMOUNTAIN WEST INTO THE CENTRAL
   PLAINS AND MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY DURING THE EARLY TO MIDDLE
   PORTION OF NEXT WEEK.  STEEPENING OF MID-LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND
   STRENGTHENING OF WIND FIELDS/VERTICAL SHEAR NEAR THIS FEATURE COULD
   BECOME SUFFICIENT TO SUPPORT ORGANIZED STRONG/SEVERE STORM
   DEVELOPMENT...MOSTLY IN THE FORM OF EVOLVING THUNDERSTORM CLUSTERS.
   AFTER PROGRESSING THROUGH THE AXIS OF BROADER SCALE RIDGING...WHICH
   MAY SUBSEQUENTLY AMPLIFY NORTH OF THE CANADIAN/U.S. BORDER TOWARD
   HUDSON BAY...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THIS IMPULSE COULD ENHANCE
   CONVECTIVE POTENTIAL SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH PARTS OF THE TENNESSEE
   VALLEY INTO THE GULF STATES DURING THE LATTER PORTION OF THE WORK
   WEEK.
  AT THE SAME TIME...SHORT WAVE IMPULSES EMERGING FROM
   TROUGHING TO THE WEST OF THE RIDGE MAY ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO INCREASING
   SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL ONCE AGAIN ACROSS THE NORTHERN
   ROCKIES/NORTHERN PLAINS REGION.  HOWEVER...UNCERTAINTIES CONCERNING
   THESE DEVELOPMENTS ARE STILL RATHER SIZABLE AT THE PRESENT
   TIME...RESULTING IN THE MAINTENANCE OF SUB-15 PERCENT SEVERE
   PROBABILITIES THROUGH THIS EXTENDED PERIOD.

   ..KERR.. 06/10/2016

Just maybe we can get some MCS activity in here next week.   ::fingerscrossed::

The DP is really mixing out efficiently today. Might make a run at 95+ this afternoon. Already 91 at the 1 PM obs.
EDIT: made it. Currently 95.9 in the shade on the north side of my house. 96 officially at KCHA. We'd have to hit 98 to tie the record for the day.

I'm working in Strasburg, CO tomorrow just inside the enhanced risk. I'll be sure to upload some pics here of anything significant. Hoping to maybe see my first tornado or "mothership."

First head advisory?  Oh the fun one could have during late-night chat sessions with THAT one....
