It really is beautiful this morning.  We just got back in from a good walk with our dog, followed by a long game of fetch in the back yard.  As much as I enjoy a good Southern summer fall is always my favorite season.  With plenty of rain over the summer I'm hoping we get good color and a real autumn this year versus the ugly event we had last year.

Agree with you hoping for a better fall this year.  Last year was probably the worst I've experienced since moving here in 2003.  Little color, endless hot dry days, and smoke filled skies for two months.  I felt like I lived in California.  The only other autumn nearly as bad was 2007--after the drought that year.

I would love a cool, wet autumn. Last year was awful in Knoxville; October temperatures in the high 80s (even low 90s) and no rain at all.

Throwback to October 2016:

Nice this morning- I remember what Bill Hall used to say whenever we had a mid-summer cool snap: "This is a gift!"

The number of days with temperatures 20-25 degrees above normal was ridiculous last autumn.  Some days were near 30 degrees above normal in November.  I was running the air conditioner into November, and I don't think I've ever done that before.  From 10/23 to 11/28 I only recorded .41" in rainfall. 

In contrast, it's July 30th, and the air switch is in the "off" position, and the windows are open.  Breakfast on the front porch in the hammock chair sounds like a plan.

Late week into the weekend looks interesting.  We are normally entering a time when mid-latitude troughs are weak and limited to the Canadian border.  Quite the opposite is happening next weekend.

Per MRX:
Quote
For Friday and Saturday, an unseasonably deep upper trough will
approach/move across the area. Extended range models differ in
timing with the GFS the slowest. Will call for high chance/likely
PoPs. Given the strength of the upper trough and expected increase
moisture/instability, will need to watch for the potential of severe
storms with this system
.

Another gift coming next weekend--Per OHX:

Quote
  It`s still a week off, but it currently looks a couple of
degrees cooler next weekend than the glorious weather we`re
experiencing this weekend.
For now, we`ll enjoy this one and look
forward to a couple days of dry skies.

It's been a while since I remember temperatures like this in early August. Looks like we've got an unseasonal dip in the jet stream on our hands. A lovely Canadian invasion.

Nothing makes me happier than to see that map in early August

I'll remember this comment when you want a big snowstorm this winter. No snow for you!

Like x2.  May the snow dome be placed over Bruce's house for all time. . .   >:D

This is the perfect look for us in winter. Seems the cold air never locks in the middle of the country anymore.

All weather talk aside--it is a beautiful area.  Some friends and I spent nearly two weeks camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness in August many years ago.  Was an awesome experience.  Just be sure to take plenty of DEET.   ;)
