No flooding here, but consistent rains have given me 2.85" so far this month, and its raining again this morning.  Good morning for  ::bacon::

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.

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):

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.

Southern and eastern Texas are going to be a flooding nightmare this weekend. Slow moving low end hurricane or tropical storm over low lying flood prone areas is not good.12z euro has nearly 20 inches of rain at Houston- we've seen this kind of scenario play out before in that area.

Where's the football thread?
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/
