A few sprinkles here. Ended July with 4.5 but 3.5 of that was in first week or so. That 2 weeks of heat dried things out.

The warm sector has moved back in. After yesterday's glorious reprieve, we are squarely back in the humidity.

Same thing here.  Had a deluge of rain the first week of July, and very little after that.  A quarter inch here, a tenth of an inch there.  Grass is rather brown, and all the ground cover is wilted.

On a different note--spent the weekend in KY, and enjoyed an October-like Saturday in August.  Morning low was 51 at my folks house in southeast KY.  Splendid.  :)

We actually ended up just a touch below normal for the month of July despite all the rain in the first 10 days of the month.

I have a feeling no one will really be complaining about a lack of rain by the end of this week, though.

The Smoky Mtn. foothills sure missed last night's rain.  Knoxville and areas near the Plateau had between .50" and 1.00".  I recorded .19", and another CoCoRaHS observer in Blount County only rec'd .07 overnight.  Hopefully, we'll have a better coverage of significant rain near the Smokies today.  The forecast calls for over an inch, but I've heard that song many times this summer only to watch the rain pass us by.

I got 1.71in IMBY last night. Bringing the month to 3.29in for me.

Pretty amazing change in modeling from 3 days ago when 3-4 inches of rain were predicted with a stalled front over the area. Now it keeps the front south of the area almost all week with lower humidity and BN temps. What is a front doing south of TN in August? There is only one 90 degree day on the GFS at Memphis for the next 15 days-and its only 90. #augusttoremember

The frequent rains are great, just so long as the 21st is a bright sunny day.  ;)

Atypical August for sure.  One has to wonder what's in store as we head deeper into autumn.  Cooler than normal trend continues--or a reversal toward a warm fall?  After last year, I would be happy with "normal."

WPC has been all over the place with their QPF forecasts.  Yesterday, it looked like 2-3 inches were likely in most of east TN.  This morning it looks more like .75-1.75".  However, we've only had a few showers so far this morning that haven't added up to more than a tenth of an inch.  Wondering if we'll even get enough to help the overall dry conditions in my area.

Looking at the GFS we will not see 90 thru the end of run which takes us all the way to the 24th. Unbelievable.

As with many rain systems this summer--this one is a big bust over this way.  Very light and insignificant showers have fallen in Sevier & Jefferson counties and areas along the foothills.  Unless more organized rain develops before this system departs, we'll probably be lucky to have a third of an inch.  Right now the radar looks anemic, despite dewpoints in the lower 70's, and a front pushing in.
