Some big winners and losers over on the east side in the current pattern.  East Knox Co has seen 2-3" while western Knox has yet to receive a drop.  I had about .85" in a very isolated downpour two nights ago, but nothing since.

My neighborhood got 2-3"+ today. I don't think Mud Island got more than a trace. They're less than 4 miles apart.

The game this week seems to be that we go to bed and wake up to promises of heavy thunderstorms and lots of rain but then by mid-morning they drop the predicted chances from 80% to 40% and we ultimately end up with nothing.  I understand that storms this time of year are hit and miss, but why have we had so many consecutive days of the crazy forecast swings?  Is there something weird that's confusing the short-term models right now?  ::shrug::

Probably the volcano changing our climate as we speak so the models have to be adjusted. haha
Don't you mean the Volcanologist's Vortex?  Or is it the Pacific Magmal Maximum?  Just wait, some network news type will come up with a name and start making entirely incorrect claims!  ::rofl::

Three month outlook for June-Aug says little chance for drought this summer.

So last night here in WNC was very scary. Very reminiscent of the 2010 flooding when I was back in Nashville.  We had very hard and heavy downpours for several hours.

We 've had constant rain over the last week and even experienced some flooding earlier in the week,

Last night in Henderson,Polk and McDowell Counties there was major flooding.   
I 26 was closed in both directions near the SC line at Saluda Grade due to 5 ft of water standing on the roadway..Also HWY 25 in to SC was closed as well.
Both were reopened this morning

Hwy 176 in the Saluda Community is now gone.. Completely washed away and it will be weeks before it is open again.  Landslides occurred and there was even a fatality when someone was washed away with their entire house.  And POLK Co. is still currently under a state of Emergency.

We are expecting more rain over the next fews day.. I can't recall a time when we have experienced flooding this bad in WNC..

WNC had a prolonged period of upslope southeasterly winds bringing in tons of moisture from the Gulf/Atlantic.  The mountains kept wringing out the moisture causing crazy amounts of rain.  On the "drier" side of the mountains, I was still able to receive over 2 inches of rain this week.  The "wetter" side in North Carolina was seeing that much almost on a daily basis, especially in the favored upslope areas.

Is that common in WNC?

Lots of small hail reports across northeast Memphis burbs early this afternoon.

If you like rain, the part of WNC where the elevation rises from the low peidmont further southeast, gets plenty of it when there is a south or southeast upslope flow around a low pressure over the TN valley (like we just had).  I get the reversal of it--a downslope flow, which usually means drier, but I still got a good soaking this past week, but not nearly as much as the other side of the mountains. 

Today turned out to be a beautiful day after an early afternoon downpour.  Clear, blue skies this afternoon, and a decent breeze to keep it comfortable.  Not too shabby.

Looks like most of the action is in western TN this evening.

The mass is heading here. My neighbors are having an outdoor party. I've got the giggles.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/
