Nice Canadian air mass coming in after the storms on Saturday. Lows down in the 50's possible. All this before potentially turning blistering hot late in the period.

On another note, we are getting to the period where ENSO forecasts are and will consolidate into what fall and winter will become. Weak El Nino looking likely which usually means an hotter start to summer and a quicker end.

Latest 3k NAM really has a couple of nasty thunderstorm days statewide starting tomorrow. The MCS developing in Arkansas on Sat looks like that derecho kind of day- potential.

and another thing- today should be the last day we need this thread since unofficial Summer begins tomorrow.

Sure is quiet around here given that we could be having a pretty stout MCS moving though in a couple of hours. Not to mention NW middle TN being under enhanced.

Today has been a decent severe weather day country wise even though we only have a few tornado reports to show for it.  There was a long-lived squall line/possible derecho (don't know if it had enough significant wind events to be classified as a derecho) along the Ohio River, a very mean supercell across Idaho of all places, and ND, ID, MO, KY, and IN have all had at least 1 tornado warning.

Not sure Ive ever seen MRX issue so many FFWs at once. Lots of heavy rain out there tonight. Its managed to completely avoid Hamilton county so far. Looks like Athens has been hit pretty hard. They had 3 early this afternoon, and it looks like another 3-4 has fallen in the last couple of hours.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

That derecho-esque storm in West Tennessee looks worrisome.

KY spring weather summary from Chris Bailey:

Quote
Meteorological Spring was about as wild as you are ever going to see it. Some highlights:
◾Record snows fell in March and April.
◾March and April were both much colder than normal and among the coldest on record.
◾May featured historic warmth and is the warmest May ever recorded.
◾The severe weather season was nearly non-existent. We only had a handful of days from March through May featuring actual severe weather watches.

All of that follows a record cold stretch in January, with frequent snows, and a record warm and wet February that featured more severe weather than May.
"For many years I was self-appointed inspector of snowstorms and rainstorms, and did my duty faithfully, though I never received one cent for it.." 
Henry David Thoreau

After going through a very scary past few days, we are so happy that the manhunt for Steven Wiggins is over! This has been going on just a few miles down the road from us. He pretty much tortured our Deputy before killing him! I was glad it was rainy this week as we were scared to go out of our houses during the hunt for the Scumbag! But God is great and it is finally over!

I didn't know this. Wow.  The DA is claiming aggravated circumstances will lead them to suggest the death penalty.
