Ended up with .84 yesterday. We are at 3.94 for the month at my house. We had 7.5 in June. Making the humidity down right awful.

Valley in east Tennessee didn't see much from these past 3 days. No rain to speak of except for yesterday where we had a trace. Temps in the upper 80's to 90.😓 Only 1.80" for July so far.

I'm glad I got the super soaking back in early July, because rain chances look small until the weekend.  After a dry June, I've had 4.63" in July so far--most of it falling in the first week of the month. 

The biggest heat ridge of the summer (so far) sets up in the middle of the country this week.  Easy to see it on the latest 7 day QPF map--a big donut hole of no rain in the Plains, and the "ring of fire" around it.  Eastern TN may see some of that action by next weekend.   ::fingerscrossed::

The GFS is absolutely bone-dry for at least the next three days, with a huge question mark as to exactly how many of us will get any rain Friday-Sunday.

When is the last time we saw this much heat and humidity but such low rain chances for a solid week? When the pattern decided to flip, she certainly flipped.

Last summer Memphis had a very hot and incredibly humid June (only 8 days below 90) with a little over an inch of rain. July and August were also very hot and humid, but very wet with over 8 inches of rain in July.

We're inching closer to my least favorite time of year here, when the heat overlaps with the dry season (not sure the dry season is quite as pronounced the further east you go in TN). I think I'm a little weird in that I actually prefer the heat if there's a chance of rain, even if it's humid, versus dry dog days of summer type heat. Nonetheless, I will complain about both every time I step outside.

The hottest weather so far this summer is upon us, and climatologically right about on time.  Mid and upper 90's will be widespread across most areas below 1200' mid to late week.  It looks like a good weekend to head upward in elevation.  John Muir had the right idea when he said, the mountains are calling, and I must go

Looks like chances for storms increasing a bit for this weekend.  Most areas in Eastern TN will probably need some rain by then after the dry heat this week.

For this weekend and Monday, upper ridging slowly weakens as trough
over the Carolinas/southeast United States retrogrades south/then
west. The mid-level warm layer will move out of the area with
increasing moisture (PWs increasing to 1.7-1.9 inches). Increasing
moisture and instability will allow convection to increase in
coverage and intensity. Isolated strong/severe storms are possible
each afternoon/evening. Main concern being damaging winds, heavy
rainfall, and frequent lightning.

GFS transitions back to a wet cool pattern after the weekend. In fact, those long range promises of 100 + are long gone now, replaced by a cooler drier air mass and temps near 60 for lows by early August. While its possible, I just don't think this is the summer for long, dry extended periods of heat. The mid 90's- maybe a 97 or 98- pale in comparison to summer long upper 90's from last year.

Long range promises of 100+ are gone, but the GFS does have KCHA and KTYS hitting 100 on Friday afternoon. Looks like it would have BNA doing the same, except for a well timed thundershower.

Heat Index at KMEM hit 107 today. I'd guess that's the hottest this summer? Not bad.

I can deal with this weather. It is summer and its supposed to be hot. 90s and HI around 105 is plenty hot enough. The day after day after day of 120 HI that we had last year is ridiculous.

Except for areas that have seen tons of rain (mainly west/middle TN), this is about as normal as summer can get for these parts. June may have been slightly below normal, but I'm not complaining.  Of course, "normal" is just averaging out the cool summers with the crazy hot summers like last year.  So, in truth, both cool & hot summers are "normal."
