Decent looking MCS headed to Memphis metro right now.  Some velocities show around 60 MPH gusts.  (Time sensitive)

Looks like the storms in west Tennessee are moving due east instead of southeast

An old fashioned gulley washer in Dyersburg and it looks like it is going to start training across the area.  ::drowning::

I dont understand the Flash Flood Watch. Nothing shows rain over the north east middle Tennessee into Kentucky area tonight-tomorrow worth that. However in the south west part it shows a lot more rainfall but no watch? I guess OHX sees something no one else does. lol

They see the slug of 2.5" PWAT headed in that direction with a front nearby.  That combined with the terrain may lead to fast flooding in valleys.

A whopping .01 of rain overnight.  There are a few scattered downpours around this morning--but they are few and far between.  Confidence in a decent rain event here is waning.
This week looks pretty wet on the GFS, but it hasn't handled this event well so far here. Not a drop of rain yet here.
Winter 2009-10 Snowfall: 11.5 in. :)
Winter 2010-11 Snowfall: 15.5 in. :)
Winter 2011-12: Trace
Winter 2012-2013: 0.25 in.
Winter 2013-14: 10.6 (9.5 on 2/12)
Winter 2014-2015:
2/18 - 0.25" snow
2/20 - 1.5" snow, 0.15" ZR
2/24 - 0.5" snow
2/25 - 8" snow :)

Looks like we might have a tropical system to keep an eye on. Parts of if not all of the state could be affected.

You’ve all been doing pretty well in the rainfall department over that way in the current pattern.  Further east, it’s been rather dry this month—at least in some areas.

That should change this week with that tropical system hitting more of eastern Tennessee. This weekends rain was a total let down but tropical systems are usually decent hits so hopefully it pans out. Anything to help keep droughts from happening.

We are a long ways away from drought concerns in any part of Tennessee right now. I can't speak for far eastern Tennessee but here on the plateau, we're looking at potentially 4-5 inches of rain if the worst case scenario pans out with the weekend tropical system, and that's 4-5 inches of rain we certainly don't need. Flooding is a far more likely scenario than drought right now.

I can't imagine anyone being thrilled by this weather pattern. Hay producers are loving it (except those who are having trouble finding enough dry weather to get their first cutting completed and put away) but other ag producers are starting to see damage to their crops from all the wet weather.

Excellent point.  I know on the west end of the state, we have been so wet that it is limiting the 90 degree days here.  We are usually well into regular 90 degree days by this time of the year, but we have only had a few.  I am not complaining about that as I hate the heat, but I know that that too much rain is problem for farmers.
