Been good Jeepin' weather the last few days.  About perfect for July. 

Meanwhile, interior Alaska is also enjoying mid-summer warmth with temperatures about as warm as ours in the lower 80's.

Been a great summer overall, right up my alley. Not no long streaks of super hot, not a lot of severe weather but enough precip to keep the grass growing.

Will make for a good Gold Rush season.  ::guitar::

I sure have enjoyed this week. Looks like it’s back to reality next week. Especially for the west end of the state.

It's the first of August, dark, raining  ::rain::, highs likely in the mid-70s...am I the only one with an odd craving for pumpkin spice and a long walk in the park to look at the leaves changing colors?  ::shrug::

It does feel more like a late September day.  Dark, dense overcast and heavy rain falling.  Not your typical weather on August 1st.  Looks like a soaking 2-4" falling by week's end.

We picked up 1.08 inches of unexpected rain overnight.  That was nice since this area missed most of the big rains over the last two weeks.  Nonetheless, we ended up with 4.30 inches for July in my back yard... well above average.  ::rain::

Up to 2.20" since 10AM on my project site in Ducktown. Storm total is now 3.50 since yesterday afternoon. Expecting 5"+ before it quits here. That will put my total rainfall since 7/7 at nearly 16". A 50 year recurrence interval according to my environmental paperwork.

I was right behind you with 4.29 for July.  However, last night Todd Howell on channel 10 reported that parts of east TN, including Knox Co, ended the month with nearly 11 inches!   ::wow::

Apart from tropical systems, its pretty unusual to have widespread heavy rainfall events in August like what's happening in east TN this afternoon.  Soaking widespread heavy rain with no thunderstorms is very atypical for late summer.  I'm not complaining.  It could easily be sweltering heat and drought this time of year.  The dog days are more like puppy days this go-around.

Recorded 1.74" of rain yesterday.  Another surge of moisture is coming up the valley and hugging the foothills and mountains this morning.  An additional 1-2" looks likely today before this system finally departs.  Despite the rain, the normally dry summer ravine near the house is still mostly dry.  The slow rain is soaking in.

Don't mind a soaker system in early August, as the month is known for turning dry and hot.

Most of Tennessee is having a good summer in terms of moisture.  However, there are a few pockets of dryness showing up in south middle and creeping into the far northwest, where some moderate drought is showing up.

Had to pull out the flashlight for the first time this summer to let the dogs do their business before heading to work.  Morning light is fading as summer wanes--my least favorite part of heading toward winter--the shorter days.

All the trees have stopped growing and most have already set buds for next spring.  The hickory trees are weighed down with an abundant crop of nuts this year. As I set on the porch, I can hear dull thuds as they begin to drop, or loud bangs when they hit the metal shed. We're in what can be the hottest part of summer and early this week does look true to form with heat indices pushing into the mid/upper 90's.  However, it's short-lived as another round of storms mid-week is followed by a cooling trend.  Overall, it's not been a bad summer for most of the TN Valley.  No severe, lasting drought, and no death ridge took up residence over our area.

Nice, love it. My favorite time of year, fall/winter, approaches. August/September seems like it drags on forever as I wait for that first crisp cool front. Summer, for the most part, has been relatively pleasant.
