Now that you mention it, Dyersburg, MRX Knoxville reports 48.8 F average daily high from Feb. 1 to 11. Surprised to see that we are slightly below normal, even with yesterday's 66 F high. West TN must be anywhere from 2-3 F below normal while East has remained near average to maybe 1 degree below.

Hey now! Some of you spoiled West TN folks have to remember that most of the state hasn't seen much snow this winter. Many of us aren't quite ready for the severe season. Especially our friends in Chattanooga, who have gotten the middle finger all winter.

Yes we have!

Our current pattern is evidence enough for why handwringing over short-term dry spells is futile. Mother nature will almost always correct herself!

Except for when it comes to snow droughts.  >:D

12z GFS = 9 inches of rain, no sub-freezing temps for next 16 days. Man, I can't wait until it's 90 and sunny every day! The older I get, the longer it seems to take winter to get out of the way.  ;D

  Says the one who does not have to worry near as much about 120 heat index. 90 is fine but does not work that way over here very much.

Mississippi River already at 21 ft and on a fast rise. This doesn't look good.

A morning break in the overcast allowed the Sun to send a brief reminder that it's still there. . .

Based on the forecast my wife an I are seriously considering a day trip on Sunday to drive to the closest place we can find with full sunshine.  The cloud cover throughout the 10 day forecasts for East TN is terrible; it's like we're living in Britain only with better food and pickup trucks....

Cumberland Falls (Corbin, KY) is hardly there thanks to high water.  This is about as extreme as it gets.

I am sure Tennessee could give the UK a run for its money in this department  ::flag::

50 shades of green, and they pulled out a pretty dark one for the 8-14 day outlook.
