Over 3 inches and still raining at my house. Was not expecting this.

KMEM pushing 3 inches- they got 1.5 inches in less than an hour earlier this morning. This was way underdone on modeling- all of them.

Opposite happening on this side of the state--little rain developing despite models showing it last night.  Just a dark, cloudy day.  Home sick with a bad cold bug.  A nice downpour would alleviate some of the discomfort.   ::rain::

O well, its still peaceful with the windows open and watching the leaves slowly fall in the woods behind the house.  Time for more Nyquil.  ::sick::

Tropical Storm Ophelia is now a thing. It's positioned near 30N and 40W and expected to become a hurricane in less that two days. It's been developing like a classic Cape Verde storm

...except that she's way north (not really anywhere near the Cape Verde Islands).  Looks like she'll be heading off northeast below the Azores... interestingly in the general direction of Europe (Iberian Peninsula). It would be interesting if she eventually became a threat to Spain or Portugal, which I don't think happens too often.

Sky has really opened up here in the last 10 minutes as a pretty good cluster of heavy showers moves in from the mountains.  It's really pouring down, and taking some of the leaves with it. 

EDIT:
Heavy showers strengthened into thunderstorms as they passed.  Haven't heard the sound of thunder in over a month.  Quite nice on a lazy, rainy day.

Yeah I thought it was close to that latitude but clearly not  ::rofl:: High pressure system going to steer it NE of its current location? That would be interesting if it threatened Iberia

Had a good .67" of rain this afternoon.  Still humid as summer out, especially for October.

Cold front knocking on the door of the MS River next few hours with a line of thunderstorms that should develop. NAM has upper 40's by tomorrow morning then cloud cover holding temps in the mid 60's tomorrow. Should be a nice change!

It will be an awesome change considering the dewpoint in Knoxville is currently 75F.  That is exceptionally high by July standards, much less mid-October.

Jonesboro shot up to 94 today and broke another record. All 4 climate sites yesterday broke records, including Memphis at 92.

Thunderstorm developed pretty much overhead about a half hour ago as the front neared. I was pretty surprised with the rain this morning!

Welcome to summer 2017 v2.0.  v1.0 was full of glitches, interruptions, hang-ups and reboots.  This version has all the bugs worked out.  Be warned, some "improved" versions stick around longer than we like.

I can confirm that the front has arrived. Thank goodness. Today was miserable.

Front will be approaching here shortly. Ready for that wind out of the northwest!

After today, summerlike 80's hang around until at least this weekend, when a "real" cold front moves in bringing much better fall weather with highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's.  It's about dang time!  I can finally start using the fire pit and clean up all the yard debris.  Hope the 80's go bye-bye for good.

Looks like only 80s Friday and Saturday here. Very fall like today. Forecast high of 65.
