Current run of the GFS keeps the stripe of heavy rain in northwest TN into KY.  It's a bit more generous with the rain in Eastern TN around TYS--dropping nearly 3" there.  Strangely, it has a "hole" of lower totals just south of OHX.

My Dad is definitely unhappy about more rain down on the farm. They've had a difficult year with locally heavy rain. For example, one day in late May they received nearly 6" across the area and it didn't even rain at my house in Memphis.

I was in San Francisco this past weekend, and it got over 90 even in the city. While it's been seasonably warm and quite muggy here, I was still hoping for a reprieve.

Most of Memphis Metro and northeastward now now in a moderate risk for excessive rain in the day 3 outlook (see my above post)

The delta is interesting during periods of excessive rain.  All that flat farm land become lakes with roads intersecting them.  It can fell more like  driving on a long bridge than a road during the really wet times.

Also you picked a bad time to head west!   ::blowtorch::

Here's hoping we don't have a system like this over us on this date two months from now.  I hope to  drive only an hour to see a once-in-a-lifetime event.  But if need be, I'll drive much further if it's cloudy here.

Thought I would share some insider info from my Uncle's friend whom is a TVA retiree. TVA is preparing to open all of their spillways in east/middle TN. Apparently some of their private forecasters are expecting the system to stall out right over TN.

Northwest TN into KY continues to be the bulls-eye for the heaviest rain.   Rain amounts continue to be trimmed back slightly into East TN.  Looks like a decent 1-2" may fall according to the recent GFS and NAM--which should be easily absorbed.  Fortunately, widespread flooding won't be a concern here, at least.  Hopefully, it won't be too bad in areas further west and north.

I will take being too wet over a drought any day but we do not need that. Already have close 4.5 for the month of June.

If I could, I would flip-flop the heavy rain over toward us.  I've only had 1.5" for the month.  The ground could probably handle it better over here.  I just hope to catch up closer to normal.

Tropical rains have started here. It never looks that impressive on radar until you see it in person .

Could be a corridor of wind gusts over 40 tomorrow am wherever the depression moves through. Should be interesting to watch.

Current HRRR has a stripe of heavy rain in the mid-state (1+"), but lesser amounts east and west of there.  Right now sprinkles falling here, and radar shows a weakening trend of precip as it moves up the Great Valley of east TN. I think some downsloping is hindering the moisture over this way--as is usually the case with large scale systems moving to our west.

True. I'm already noticing when one of these showers/bands come through, winds pick up a bit. You can tell it's a little out of the ordinary.
