Almost all of East TN is now under a Thunderstorm Watch and I just heard the first big rumble of thunder in Knoxville.   ::popcorn::

TOR in a very unusual location on the border of Polk and Monroe counties in the middle of the mountains. I noticed a thunderhead when I was relaxing the in the front yard this evening. Itís actually really nice out here. I didnít know there were storms nearby.
 BTW we had a thunder shower this morning. I think it was the first time Iíve heard thunder in about 5 months.

We never did get storms across my part of West Knoxville but I did get to see one of the cooler weather sights I've personally experienced.  I stepped into the backyard when we let our dog make her last trip to the yard before bed and when I looked up I could see stars directly above our house, but when I looked to the south there was a big cloud bank with lots of impressive lightning flashing through it.  The contrast between a clear, starry sky and lightning-filled thunderclouds was just a really cool way to end the day.

Saw a similar sight over my way.  The storms bypassed me to the south, but there was a cool lightning show for about an hour.  It was a pleasant evening for watching storms from the front porch.

Looks like a small tornado crossed hwy 64 in Polk county about half a mile from my project site. There were a bunch of pine trees down and a shed destroyed. Probably happened Saturday night.

May want to report that to MRX, with pics and a geotagged fix, if possible.

MRX did confirm an EF-0 in the Coker Creek area, that was likely from that same tornado warned cell on Saturday evening.

Today is the 66th anniversary of the deadliest day in Dyer County history. My Granddad's brother who lived next door to him was killed and his dairy farm was completely blown away.

I'm sorry to hear about your great-uncle. That was an incredible outbreak. 209 killed and 11 (!) F4s in the Mid South, which is the 4th highest in a single outbreak. 7 of the F4s affected the MEG CWA. The other 4 were in LZK's. I think it's likely that an EF5 probably occurred somewhere in there.

Surprised no ones mentioning all the rain coming around Easter lol. I mean the grounds not as wet as a few weeks ago but its not dry so there might be flooding problems around here again in a week or so.
Snow, flood and storm lover.

06Z GFS showing some crazy rain amounts over the TN valley in the next 10 days.  The system mid-week bears watching per MRX:

Quote
A bigger rain maker will begin to move in during
the middle of the week as a strong cold front moves in from the
west. Lots of Gulf moisture is being brought in with winds shifting
out of the southwest ahead of this system, with forecast PWAT values
well over the 90th percentile for this time of year. With the very
high PWAT values and the strong winds out of the south/southwest
running mostly parallel to the incoming front we could see
widespread heavy rain over the forecast area. This system will be
one to keep an eye on as several inches of rainfall may be possible
as this system rolls through.
