Had a lightning strike nearby today that knocked out power to a few places.  It is my first taste of 'severe' weather since coming back home.  From the looks of my back yard here, its been a wet summer.

Memphis is already in the top 5 wettest years to date on record and picked up 1.37" more this afternoon. Despite our long-duration deluge in March we've been pretty lucky that the rain has mostly fallen in events of 1-2" at a time.
The huge contrast in weather this summer across the state is shocking to me. Memphis on track for one of the wettest years ever, and Chattanooga is currently outpacing its driest ever year. KCHA is still under 23" for the year.

The drought has eased a bit here in the central TN valley(I had nearly 6 inches for August), but it looks like a long dry, hot spell is in our future unless the tropical disturbance "left-overs" can do something for us early next week.  I'd say the drought will intensify again everywhere in east TN, unless something changes in the forecast.

This afternoon's storm had enough heavy rain and wind to drop at least one tree in my neighborhood in West Knoxville.  It was one of the longer lasting storms I've seen this summer.

Memphis nearing 50 inches of rain as of today. 53-54 is a normal annual amount. Better hurry before dry fall weather kicks in next month.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

Well,  let's just hope that's wrong.   This summer is just killer.  I'm really feeling the cumulative effect of it this past week myself.   The fatigue is real.

Actually it's showing upper 80s at least for a couple days early next week

I think 5 or 6 people mentioned around me today how ready they are for a change of seasons.

An additional notable for Memphis is the record streak of consecutive days the site experienced without dropping below 70.0 degrees. At the end of the day on August 31st the number of days was 82, a new record. This means Memphis was at or above 70.0 degrees for most of the summer, continuously. In addition, Memphis recorded a heat index value of 119 degrees back in June, which was the warmest heat index value experienced in at least 10 years.

Wish we could score some rainfall but the "dry" heat we're experiencing is nice. Dew points have been mixing out in the afternoon as recent over this way. 92F/58F is a piece of cake compared to July and August humidity levels.  8)

It's unfortunate that our West TN members are still stuck in the sauna.

Fingers crossed that after today things get much better. It looks to stay warm for the next week or so but if things hold I might see 90 for the last time this year in my backyard.
 The GFS in the longer range has backed way off on temps and has 70s for highs statewide at day 9 until the end of run.
