It's congealed into a line along I-65 now... with quite honestly not much to come further west. The main shield has shifted into KY already. There are some warnings for the part of the line in AL.

This does seem more like a scenario we would see in September with a strong cold front coming in behind the departing remnants of a tropical system... it's even going to feel fallish for a few days after this with morning lows dipping into the upper 50s.

You know we will have at least one week of upper 90's to 100, or perhaps a brief run AOA 100. If it happens in July, followed by some stints of "cooler" air- at night anyways- it's a success in my book.

Next several hours could be interesting for Memphis.  We have an MCS headed straight into the rich tropical moisture from Cindy during maximum heating hours with Cindy's meso low right on top of us.  This could be another big wind event.  Something to watch for sure.

So, could there actually be a derecho on the back side of this thing? That's a persistent bowing feature in AR.

Not for Middle Tennessee. And its more from the cold front not from Cindy at all. If anything Cindy is the reason it will fall apart once it runs into Memphis area. Idk if saying the atmosphere is worked over is the right term but its clear that something in the air is preventing rain (maybe dry air idk..) Otherwise wouldn't this cold front moving in next to a tropical system scream rain? When in fact it will come through with nothing for us besides maybe a spotty light shower at best.

Even 40-50 mph winds will bring things down. There's still around 4,700 out from this morning, and dead limbs are still randomly falling in my neighborhood. Certainly worth watching that line.

Total non-event here, despite some gusty afternoon winds.  Line of storms heading eastward is unimpressive and weakening despite moving in during peak afternoon heating.  Would've been nice to get some needed rain in areas that still are running way below normal for June.  Hoping for at least a quarter inch.

Maybe I have been concentrating on Cindy but I sure was not expecting what is rolling across Arkansas. I do not think that was forecasted.

Been an unusual June evening.  A great deal of wind, but not the typical thunderstorms you would expect this time of year--simply light showers.

I could complain that we got very little rain with this system, and, unlike most in the TN valley, we could actually use a good soaking here.  Instead, considering I grilled out my dinner surrounded by lightning bugs and a good 20 mph breeze that kept the mosquitos away, and, considering I could hear the rustling leaves and the sighing trees in the gathering twilight, I'll just say I'm blessed. 

Perspective.

Amazing weather for mid-summer over the next few days.  Mild days, cool nights and low humidity. 

Later in the week, we get back to more normal weather for summer, but who can complain about mid-upper 80's with daily chances for thunderstorms?  Compared to last year, or most summers here for that matter, that's easy breezy.   8)
