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.
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/

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.

Was finally blessed with 1.51" of rain overnight.  Most of it fell between 10 and midnight in several rounds of downpours.  There were a few lightning flashes, but it was mainly just heavy rain.

Knoxville (near downtown and Knox county--not the airport) has been getting the lion's share of rain in east Tennessee so far this month.  The airport did receive 1.66" last night, as well; however, setting a daily rainfall record.

Per MRX:

Quote
For today, as high pressure drifts east across OH into MD, we
should see an increasing S-SE flow in the low levels that will
advect moisture into the area. Southern sections and the mountains
will be favored for afternoon convection as northern sections will
have a downslope wind component and thus greater stability
. More
sunshine and downsloping may give higher temps north than south
today.

I think this is why most areas east of Knoxville have been much drier than middle and west TN.  Many times this summer, storms would form west of here, but as they moved east of Knoxville, they would weaken and dissipate very quickly.  Most of the time during summer winds are from the southwest.  This summer we've had stronger troughs (for this time of the year) pass to our west and north creating a southeast downslope flow over the mountains.
