Hopefully some beneficial rains this week. Maybe something to keep an eye on toward the weekend:

For D6/Saturday and beyond, some risk for severe
   weather may organize downstream across parts of the lower/mid
   Mississippi Valley and points east, but confidence remains low in
   the location/timing of any such threat.

Both MEG and OHX mention they are keeping any eye on the "potent/intense" system with MEG mentioning strong to severe storms possible on Saturday in today's HWO.

Looks like it could be a good shot of severe weather Saturday. Need to watch this one closely.

For D4/Thursday, a sheared shortwave trough will advance across the
   Great Lakes, with an attendant surface front pushing east/southeast
   across Indiana and Ohio. While enhanced westerly flow aloft and some
   boundary layer moistening may yield a few severe storms, the threat
   appears too marginal for a probabilistic area at this time. By
   D5/Friday, a mid-level trough will gradually approach the
   southern/central Plains. Guidance continues to indicate uncertainty
   regarding the amplitude/orientation of the trough, suggesting low
   predictability of pertinent surface features impacting
   severe-weather potential. Therefore, while severe weather appears
   possible across parts of Texas and Oklahoma Friday, no probabilities
   are introduced. For D6/Saturday and beyond, some risk for severe
   weather may organize downstream across parts of the lower/mid
   Mississippi Valley and points east, but confidence remains low in
   the location/timing of any such threat

These are those storms that are mostly less severe but are gully washers- huge pelting drops.

Storms moving through Nashville metro right at rush hour. Traffic appears to be gridlocked all over... going to give it a few minutes before I get out in this mess.

FFW in effect for parts of Dickson, Hickman, and western Williamson. Radar estimates topping 3" in some of those places.

Deluge in Brentwood right now... trapped in office without an umbrella.  ::rain:: ::rant::

I hope we get our share down this way today. I was still kicking up dust going down the drive this morning. Need some rain!

Not much rain yesterday around you? It took me over an hour to get home yesterday on what would be a 20-minute drive in light traffic.

At the moment the GFS has east Arkansas, west Tennessee and extreme southern Missouri in the sweet spot for severe on Saturday. The Euro has the low further south and says nothing to see here.

Nope. We got a light shower, but it was still dry under the trees. Looked like the northern parts of Wayne, Lawrence, Giles, and into southern Marshall were the losers yesterday in the rain dept. Did get another light shower this morning. Garden is about 2/3rds planted so we could use it.

It didn't rain a drop here yesterday. The storms/showers began developing right along I-40 and stayed south all evening. I'm not complaining, even though -- like Coach -- my garden is planted, because it looks like we'll all have plenty of rain by the end of the weekend.

Today's HWO says a few strong storms are possible this afternoon again with small hail and gusty winds.
