We got a reprieve from the heat with the pool of cool air thanks to those complexes that dominated the area. But, it looks like itís going to heat up today.

My friend just called from Paducah, 80MPH winds. She was mad because I did not call her and warn her. She was out driving when it hit.

This is why people need multiple ways to get warnings. I tel people who follow my NWS Sumner/Macon County accounts not to rely solely on me to give them the warning  information.

That MCS that came plunging out of the north last night really gave the atmosphere a sucker punch. We were under an Excessive Heat Warning for today but on managed 90 with HEat Index of 99. Iíll take that busy every day.

Anyone grab a radar loop of that MCS from last week that went NE to SW across Memphis?  That is one of the oddest storm tracks I have ever seen here for such a large complex.  I thought I saved it from the COD site but I can't find it now.  >:(

We've had continuous thunder for 2 hours tonight in west Knoxville but not a single drop of rain at my house.  This is probably the longest I've ever seen this kind of storm just sit and roar without moving.

These stupid east to west thunderstorms are wreaking havoc on my yard.  I have lost a big almost 2' in diameter tree in my back yard last month and yesterday I lost a huge almost 10" branch from a tree in my front yard.  My trees are so use to storms from the west this whole eastern thing is kicking their butts.

Not worth a named thread as it's expected to be torn apart by shear in the next few days over open water but we do have our second named storm of the season, Tropical Storm Beryl https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/2018-07-05-tropical-storm-beryl-atlantic.  Behind it is invest 96L which looks to be a fish storm, but these are signs that we're moving towards the busy time of hurricane season this year.

These storms can develop fast. I heard thunder and checked radarscope- nothing really that close, or close enough to hear thunder that loud. I checked again in 5 minutes on the next refresh, and bam- there it is- a heavy cell had popped up.

And gone just as fast.

Yep- that cell dissipated quick, and then shortly afterwards, we heard thunder from another popup.

I have gotten some gorgeous shots of some of these pop up storms.  It is rare to actually be able to see cloud structures here except for these summer time airmass thunderstorms.  Will post them this weekend.

My (old) house in Midtown has been without power since mid-evening yesterday. My best friend still lives there. Guess there was some wind somewhere in Shelby last night.
