They're good neighbors but not that good!

It is fun to watch these storms explode on the outflow boundaries. Just had a boundary roll in from the east and  as it met the broken line coming in from Arkansas it blew up right over Dyer County. Finally got a good rain at my house.

Was hoping to see one at my house today, after watching one just to my West blow up over BNA. Yet, same thing today. The wait continues....lol.

1.69" in the last 30mins. We needed it but that's a lot of runoff.

Interesting read from ALWX.  Thought I'd share. . .

From the latest NOAA report, there is a 20% chance of a tropical storm developing in the Caribbean later this week that will make its way toward Florida. If it materializes, this provides a glimpse at an active hurricane season, which was predicted in April.

A few years ago in May-  it was in in the 30s in the afternoon in Memphis. I remember thinking how insane they was.

I remember that storm produced a couple of inches of snow in Arkansas - the only May snow in Arkansas ever recorded.

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

The region looks like it has a rash on composite radar. Lots of scattered popups.

Yep, that was 2013. NW Arkansas received more snow that day than most towns in Tennessee did during the winter of 2017-18

That was one of the coolest & wettest summers I've seen in Tennessee since moving here in 2003.  Sunny days were few and far between, and 90+ days were rare.  I had no luck with my garden that year for that reason--not enough sunlight.  Most of my tomato plants rotted in the ground.

...MAXIMUM RISK BY HAZARD...
   Tornado:  <2%     - None
   Wind:     15%     - Slight
   Hail:     15%     - Slight

If you look at the bottom of a Day 2 outlook this now appears.  This tells you the maximum risk by hazard and now provides insight into what the SPC is thinking before the Day 1 outlook.  I know we really haven't had any reason to look at that since our severe weather season this year began and ended on February 24th, but that is something for future reference.
