I went out to the woodshed and split some kindling with the wind kicking up this afternoon, and then when the rain came in and drove me inside went into my workshop to sharpen my hatchet, during which the local country station played Rocky Top.  It's fall y'all!   ::yum::

Feels like an October morning with temps in the upper 50's, a stiff breeze blowing, and a light mist falling.  It's the kind of morning that lets you know seasons are changing, and right on time as September begins.  Sure beats last year's heat that lasted into November. 

Despite the dryness continuing here, not concerned about drought getting a foothold like last year.  Pattern looks much more active than last fall, and a good .75-1.00" looks likely for this area next week.  Temperatures late week are unbelievable for early September--lower 70's.  I'm on board. 

Happy Labor Day weekend, folks.

Wow...talk about a change of seasons!  Barely 60, and light rain falling most of the day with a strong breeze.   It's sweatshirt weather over here.  Not the best for Labor Day weekend, but I've got my grill fired up and we're enjoying every minute of it.  A covered porch is a joy forever!

Any misspellings are due to friends spiking the punch. (that's my story--and I'm sticking to it)  ;D

Absolutely beautiful morning here, after a quarter inch of rain fell yesterday (which was actually the most that fell in a 24hr period here with Harvey).  However, local TDOT cameras show some very dense, pea soup fog in some locations.  Visibility is zero in many areas.

After tomorrow the extended forecasts are showing Knoxville staying with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s, pretty much absolutely perfect fall weather in September.  Next weekend may be the first batch of pumpkin custard and ginger snaps of the year!

We might dip into the upper 40s this week. Feels like football weather  ::flag::
Speaking of the upper 40s, that might be the amount of scoring UT's defense will allow against Georgia Tech tonight  ::bangingheadintowall::

2015 was the wettest year on record in Oneida (records only date back to ~1950, so take it for what it's worth), with 72.4" of rainfall.

2016 was not the driest year on record but it was close. We wound up with 46" of rainfall, thanks to a wet December, beat out the old record of 41.6" (1959). It was the driest year-to-date until the start of December.

Now we're back on the plus side in 2017, with a rainfall surplus of about 10" as of Sept. 1. That's not quite as much as 2015, but we're a lot closer to 2015's January-August totals (-6") than we are to 1959's (-18"). Normal is just an average of extremes, but it seems here lately all we have are extremes.

After a good rain tomorrow evening into Wednesday morning, we have a forecast high of 71 on Thursday and a low of 50 on the local point and click forecast.  Perfection.

Yep. After getting just over 2" of rain from Harvey, I'm getting really close to 50" on the year already.

I'm not sure where "normal" lies here where I live, but I'm at 35" for the year.  So, while other areas of the state have had too much rain, we're probably around where we should be or slightly below.  We only had about a half inch with Harvey thanks to downsloping southeast winds over the Smokies.

In non-hurricane news they're predicting "near record lows" in Knoxville tonight and tomorrow night at 49 and 50 degrees respectively.  I'm loving the early taste of fall and chilly air.
