Peoples been saying that all summer ect I guess we kind of payed in July but man this summers been chill lol. Im more worried about the winter because of this but heck some of our cold winters turn out dry. So a wet warm winter might not be to bad just takes 1 cold wave to reward us.

Was finally blessed with 1.51" of rain overnight.  Most of it fell between 10 and midnight in several rounds of downpours.  There were a few lightning flashes, but it was mainly just heavy rain.

Knoxville (near downtown and Knox county--not the airport) has been getting the lion's share of rain in east Tennessee so far this month.  The airport did receive 1.66" last night, as well; however, setting a daily rainfall record.

Per MRX:

Quote
For today, as high pressure drifts east across OH into MD, we
should see an increasing S-SE flow in the low levels that will
advect moisture into the area. Southern sections and the mountains
will be favored for afternoon convection as northern sections will
have a downslope wind component and thus greater stability
. More
sunshine and downsloping may give higher temps north than south
today.

I think this is why most areas east of Knoxville have been much drier than middle and west TN.  Many times this summer, storms would form west of here, but as they moved east of Knoxville, they would weaken and dissipate very quickly.  Most of the time during summer winds are from the southwest.  This summer we've had stronger troughs (for this time of the year) pass to our west and north creating a southeast downslope flow over the mountains.

It didn't rain today for a change, and it was "sunny," but if the eclipse was today, it still wouldn't have been a great day for viewing it with all the haze.  The sky was more of a milky white than blue.

Interesting info from MRX today:

Since this past several forecasts have been a bit of a broken
record, let`s talk about something a little more interesting. All
three of our ASOS sites are running above average on precip so far
this August. CHA is sitting at 2.54 inches which is 1.06 inches
above normal, TYS is at 4.30 inches which is 2.85 inches above
normal, and TRI is at 2.86 inches which is 1.34 inches above normal.
It definitely has been a wet start to the month and that doesn`t
look to change in the near future. The wet start is helping to build
on our yearly surplus too. CHA is at 42.81 inches for the year which
is 9.56 inches above normal, TYS is at 35.87 inches which is 4.09
inches above normal, and TRI is at 31.39 inches which is 3.89 inches
above normal.
 

Quite the turnaround from last year at this time, especially for Chatty.  Over 9 inches above normal for the year.

It is an amazing change of fates. I'm actually at 45.66" on the year so far IMBY. Only need 7" more for the rest of the year to finish at normal levels.

Is it just me, or is "normal" hard to come by these days?  The weather pendulum swings wildly from one extreme to another.

If it holds together looks like a big rain for most of West Tn today . Heavy rain is slowly creeping this way.

OHX radar is down due to an unspecified issue. Use Huntsville/Hytop for roughly southern Mid-state, and Fort Campbell for Nashville metro.

Looks like some sort of tropical system could bring us some major rains early next week (per MRX):

Quote
Sunday and Monday look interesting as a tropical system across the
state of Texas could end up affecting our weather. Won`t even get
into timing or too many other details this far out but it generally
looks like an upper level trough comes in late in the period,
picking up this tropical system, and transporting it in our
direction. Again, something to watch moving forward.

Current GFS shows west and middle TN taking on the brunt of the moisture.

Gotta be the least boring August weather wise in a long time. Especially when you throw the eclipse in the mix.
