Had quite a line of storms gusting out as they collapsed yesterday around 4 pm.  Several large trees were downed on my road.  Only .22 of rain fell, but the wind was impressive.
That line got pretty rough when it came through Knoxville, although it didn't reach warning status.  A big tree was down close to me when I went out after the line had passed that thankfully fell into the owners' yard rather than across a busy street.  This really does feel like the traditional Tennessee summers I'm used to; humid, overcast, and storms most afternoons.  I hope it leads to us getting a real fall season with moderate temperatures and good color on the trees.

My first vacation in years and the bullseye us right where we'll be.
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/

Last night was probably one of more warm, humid nights of this summer so far.  Felt like a sauna outside around 3 a.m. when I looked outside during a downpour that woke me up.  Hopefully, well have a few days of more comfortable humidity levels by Sunday & Monday as another northwest flow briefly sets up.

I love the long days of summer.  The twilight lasting to almost 10 p.m is something I enjoy.  However, there have been many summers I wanted to see end due to the oppressive heat and humidity & lack of rain that withered anything green.  2007, 2011-12 & 2016 come to mind.  Its good to have a summer where I can actually enjoy the long days and not wish them away for cooler, autumn breezes.

We need about 5 years of oppressive heat and humidity to make up for this disastrous summer.  ::)

I'll believe it when I see it. The GFS has been consistently building heat ridges after truncation, only to lose them. Summers like this rarely flip this late in the season.

Not that I want oppressive heat, or even above-normal heat of any kind. But I would like some consistently dry weather, and if that means heat, I'll take it.

I know, right! I've always wondered what drives the mindset of people who root for rain everyday. I imagine them with translucent skin, sitting in front of their computer incessantly staring at weather models and never venturing outside to enjoy the fresh air.   :)
