Is this December, or may? >:D
Well, it was warm and we had a heavy thunderstorm roll through a little after 10 PM last night, but today it's gray, ugly, and in the 50s.  I'd say it's definitely December, this is what the last two periods around Christmas have been like!

Not sure what to say about the behavior of the rain around the immediate Memphis metro today. Very strange
What do you mean?

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

I'm loving this weather.  Too bad we couldn't get a ULL with a deformation axis to park over us this winter but I'll take it.

We seem to finally be paying for all the warmth.  Cold air from up north has to break off eventually.

I wouldn't mind it staying this way through the balance of May.  90's will be here again too soon for me.

Just some backside precip from a strong upper low.  It can move strangely versus what we typically see.

The temperature dropped to 37.5F out here last night... a bit colder than expected.   ::cold::

It is good to see the sun again this morning.

I was reffering to what looked like dry air issues and an energy transfer to the south on Wednesday.

That's a good assessment.  At the time, there was a very large complex of storms along the Gulf of Mexico.  That robbed the moisture transport further north into Tennessee, and what rain was here "dried up."  It also happened here in East Tennessee (along with downsloping) that made for a dry day, despite a huge upper low almost right over us.  It's a good example that even a strong low pressure can't make it rain without a good moisture source.  That's how deserts form.  In fact, without the water in the Gulf, much of the southeast United States would be a desert, similar to Arizona and New Mexico.

Very cool weather (pun intended) for May:

National Weather Service Morristown TN
323 PM EDT Sat May 6 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight and Tomorrow)...

Will include a pre-first period in the forecast for late afternoon
adjustments. It looks like any thunderstorm chances should be
limited to only the Southern Valley. Took thunder out of forecast
for Central Valley as well as adjusted temperatures. It`s been a
crazy weather day. At the current hour it`s 73 at Chattanooga and
only 45 at Knoxville and it`s still snowing on Mt. LeConte.

I have to admit, it feels so strange to have everything green and bloomed out here, and I could see snow on the Smokies today.  I haven't see that this late in the year before.

'Twas an exceptionally beautiful day here.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

North of I-40 is in a slight risk for Day 1... for what it's worth given SPC's track record so far this spring. ;)

It looks wet tonight and tomorrow in any case.

It's quiet here. Pretty good rain and storms in progress in W TN, with some warnings.

Flash Flood Watch for NW TN. With the slow moving boundary and heavy rainfall rates there is some decent flash flood potential in NW TN overnight. Some of the storms could produce 1-2 inch per hour rates.

Wow at the rainfall rates in Robertson and Sumner co. Radar estimates up to 2"/hr rates near Springfield and Hendersonville, totaling more than 4" in spots and counting.

Any one want to take a stab on our first widespread 90s day?  Looks like we will be getting close later this week on the west end of the state.  With 90s comes the start of the summer - here is to hoping for lots of MCS activity.
