We got an inch here in downtown Knox.

Looks like the heaviest rain passed over central Knox County into north Sevier.  A good soaking.  Areas north and south of there got quite a bit less.

I officially ended up with .93" in last night's downpour.  What made it interesting was the area of precipitation had some rotation, as if a small mesolow was left over after the line of storms moving out of middle TN dissipated.  http://forecast.weather.gov/glossary.php?word=MESOLOW. The heavy rain fell only along the path of that small rotating area of showers and storms.  Places north and south of there saw less than a quarter inch, and some saw less than a .10".  I know, I know, no big deal, but true weather geeks find these sorta things interesting, nonetheless.   ::coffee::

Not quite sure what to make of this but this is from Muhlenberg County, KY at 9pm when storms are starting to form.  The shear/instability combo is good enough for things to get surprisingly interesting even down well into Kentucky tonight.

We took a long afternoon walk at the park in Sequoyah Hills (which we drove to, we don't live there :)) in Knoxville today to stretch our legs and get the dog out and about.  It's a tad warm, but there was a great breeze, there is finally some color on the trees (not great, but hey), and lots of people out with other friendly dogs.  All in all a wonderful fall afternoon.  As a side note the Tennessee River is full to the banks; every bit as high as it was after all the storms in the spring and maybe a bit higher.

Look at the amount of rain the overnight storms are expected to put down in the Ohio Valley. 



I'm out burning leaves and brush in the firepit, and sweating way too much for a November evening.  Dewpoints are high, and there is plenty of moisture to fuel any overnight storms.  Despite the warmth, I'll take this over last November, when fires were already starting to spread.  At least we are getting rain this year.

Despite our warmth, snow cover in North America is running way ahead of last autumn.  Canada is pretty much covered in a decent snow pack, already.

What's your location? Winter is upon us and putting your location in your bio will be really beneficial over the next few months. Glad to have you onboard and as a part of the conversation!

Yesterday's rain caused a rock slide that has damaged the Ocoee flume line. TVA can't regulate the flow of the middle Ocoee until it gets fixed:

There was a pretty dramatic 100' waterfall coming down the side of the river gorge for a while this morning.

That's a pretty impressive change from last November, when there was basically no snow cover anywhere in the U.S., and even a large part of Canada was snow free.  Hopefully, it "sticks" around to act as a refrigerant for our winter months.

AO/NAO forecasts continue to show a nosedive later this month, and the GFS is catching on, depicting quite the chill developing around Thanksgiving.  Cold turkey looks to be on the menu this year, or cold toast if your menu is limited like Charlie Brown's.  Sorry Peppermint Patty.

I'm looking forward to a Thanksgiving where I don't have the A/C on to balance out the heat in the kitchen and outside.  It looks like we might be cool enough in Knoxville to relax by a nice fire after dinner.  As for what's on the table, I put more trust in Snoopy to fix my Thanksgiving meal!
