Our recent heat sure didn't last long.  The frequent cool, rainy weather we're having is starting to remind me of the summer of 2013.  I'll take it.

It's shaping up to be a 2008 redux, which absolutely sucks. For the life of me I'll never understand why you people like rainy weather.  >:D The good news is GFS consistently showing truly scorching temps around June 4-6, even if they will be short-lived.  ;D

One--I've only used the air conditioner a handful of times this year (mainly last week), and I love the extremely low utility bill. 

Two--Rain/storms = weather.  Endless sun and heat like last year = boring.  ::sleeping::  If I enjoyed that kind of weather, I'd move to California.     ;D  Now, in all honesty, I would prefer more summer-like weather with a good mixture of sun and daily afternoon storms.  The dreary, cloudy weather with light rain isn't something I enjoy every day.  Give me a summer like 2009.

The latest GFS runs show quite a bit of rain Saturday night into Sunday morning across Western and portions of Middle Tennessee from what I assume would be an MCS. We are heading into the season for slow moving MCS events with at least localized flooding potential so that is something to watch.

5% hatched area for all of east TN today on the Day 1. This definitely caught me by surprise.

I think we've just had a unwarned tornado in southern Bradley county/ northern Murray county GA. Lots of damage reports coming in. There is another warned storm now further south in Gordon county, but I don't think the storm near the TN border was warned.

We've had strong wind and storms this morning in Knoxville, but the local mets says that the worst is to come this afternoon. Is that right?

The storm that just passed me has smaller then pea size hail but it had huge winds. At least near warning level (no idea why their isn't a warning with it.) And the heavyest wind driven rain I have seen in a long time... Heres a picture of the radar I got just now. Im in far North east Wilson county (aka Lebanon).
Nevermind they just issued the warning but its over for me now lol. But it was definitely worthy of one at least super borderline anyways.
Oh btw the wind came in from the north at first then (super weak) then it switched from the south west hard and back from the west by the end of it. (strong storms usually do that here anyways) Just noting it for whoever cares lol.

So I guess that storm that passed me was a supercell. They are the experts and are calling it that. Maybe that wind change as it passed was beginning of a weak rotation? Hmm. If you watch that storm develop and strengthen as it pass's far north eastern Wilson county you can see the swirling motion of the storm as a whole and if you watch velocity you can see red and green together as well. Didn't expect it today it actually woke me up when it was near from the loud cloud to ground lightning back to back.

The discussion I'm hearing locally this afternoon is that we're due for some potentially strong or severe storms in Knoxville.  The talk early this morning was that if we got good sun in between fronts that heated things up we would have a better chance of severe weather and we've had blue skies and bright sunlight for better than an hour in west Knox.  The wind and the look of the clouds *feels* right for severe weather.  Time will tell.

Honestly that watch is going to be a huge bust. There is absolutely nothing going on at the moment.

Unless something else develops later, I think tonight's severe risk isn't happening.   It's a beautiful evening, but with gusty winds.  All my windows are open, and the air feels too stable (dry/cool) for any intense storms.

I've seen two separate videos taking from BNA's cell waiting lot of a potentially very weak, brief tornado just east of the airport earlier this afternoon.

I wonder if it was the supercell that passed over me in wilson county. No warning until it passed but it  was a strong storm for sure.
