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.

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.

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