Title: Summer (Cancel) 2018
Post by: mempho on May 14, 2018, 09:42:20 PM
We're wasting all the heat early.... What a waste of heat-  this will likely mean very little chance of heat lightning during the climatoligical peak of summer.  Oh, well, there's always next year. Seems like they don't make summers like they used to.  I remember January 85, uh, I mean July 1980 when it was just 100s for months on end.  You can't even barely get a 100 degree day for more than a day or two in a row anymore.  Kids these days will never know what it's like to be a hot, sweaty mess for months on end or to walk in from being outside and find you have more salt on your elbow than a Lay's potato chip.  Oh, those were the days, man.  Those were the days... It used to get so hot that people would run to church for fear of an enternity in ****.

I feel sorry for people like Bruce....

There has never been a summer even close to 1980 temperature wise.

I searched for weather data for the year 1980 for Nashville but could not find anything. I wonder how the months averaged that year.

For what it's worth, OHX data dissents from your memories. The longest streak of days >100 degrees Fahrenheit occured in the last week of June in 1952.

2007 holds the record as the hottest summer in Nashville, with a 34-day streak of maximum temperature above 90 degrees from late July all the way into August.

This was a nasty, nasty summer

Here's a good summary from Jackson. July 1980 and August 2007 were the hottest months on record.

Summer cancel love the title! I ran yesterday about 5pm, and honestly- Iím not acclimated yet. It was rough. Like any climate, we all acclimate at some point and degree- so even with the ďlower dewpointsĒ- it will feel rough for a few more days.

Saw MEG tweet yesterday that of the top 5 warmest first half of May periods (which 2018 is now a part of), two of the remaining summer periods went on to be well below normal, and 3 were above. Euro summer forecast is just about normal for most with rain picking up soon.


Early winter peek at ENSO looks like weak El NiŮo which usually means an early Fall- being it.

Well, OHX may not be the best climate site to use for the effects of 1980. Memphis had 15 days straight over 100, compared to Nashville's 1952 record of 8. I'm sure 1980 was awful across all of TN, but the worst was centered a little west towards the Southern Plains and Midwest.

August 2007 was terrible as well.

I'm fine with normal.  It seems like most summers have been above normal with a few exceptions since I've lived here.

Absolutely. It was also crazy how many days the DPs really pooled in NW TN especially.

2016, 2012, and 2007 are the most memorable hot summers of my life thus far. Also recall August/September 2000 as being no fun.

I kinda disagree with that. With the exception of 2013 and 2014, this past decade has been pretty dang hot from May to September. Check out the summary from Memphis:

August 2007 was terrible as well.

I researched the 1980 heat wave, and you are right: it was historic for Texas, the Plains, and the Midwest. Middle and East Tennessee were less affected under the setup from the jet stream, so I should have looked at data from Memphis, Jackson, and Dyersburg instead of Nashville.

In terms of the whole of Tennessee being affected by exceptional drought and heat, however, we should look no further than 2007 and 2012. Those summers were devastating for our state's agricultural output.

Found a video dated August 1980 from a Dallas meteorologist:

So far my house has been missed by all the rain all week. But where i work on wednesday we got like a long 30-45min downpour.

So much for rain this week.. I dont see how we dont have no forms of drought on the map still. Ponds here are dropping already and with this heat the top soil has to be at least in the d0 stage surely..
Well finally got a rain although i think i need more lol

This early summer air mass looks to get completely scoured out next weekend by a cool Canadian air mass. Humidity should drop along with dew points allowing low temps back into the 40ís.

Looks like it one of those summer patterns where the heat high is centered in Texas and Oklahoma- which occasionally leaves expands east but leaves us in the northwest flow for MCS and backdoor cold fronts. Wouldnít surprise me for the heat to make one brutal run eastwards with 100ís for a week before retreating. We shall see.

Any time I see northwest flow aloft in the AFD and its summer I am a happy man.  I know its going to be hot, but frequent thunderstorms help cool things off and keep the weather interesting.   Beats being in the dead center of a forty-zillion dam high.

Similar to 2012 in some ways, although the heat isn't nearly as intense or widespread as that year (yet).  Drought was also centered in the southern plains back then, and the drought outlook shows it spreading in the same areas this summer.

And now I have a severe warned storm just north of my house and you can tell its strong on the radar and when i look north constant lightning strikes and the rain is like \ falling from the sky in the distance. No rain here yet though but it looks to be slowly expanding kind of.
Ok getting a storm now its not even the big one yet its very very strong lightning and thunder wise. Like its crazy back to back cloud to ground.

I'm not sure what kind of storm we had while I was gone to a wedding on Saturday, but it must've been a hellacious frog-strangler. Of course it washed out the road, but that's happened before. It absolutely destroyed the garden. Sure, it's on a bit of a slope and prone to some erosion if it's recently been plowed or tilled, but this was ridiculous. It now looks like the grand canyon and all of the corn and sunflowers toppled because the dirt was washed away from the roots. I've never seen anything like it.

On a better note, I'm headed for the Gulf this weekend (St. George Island, here I come) and I'm sure glad to see that the tropical trouble that was being forecast by some models (especially the GFS) proved to be nonsense. It looks like a week of almost perfect beach weather if that holds...and it's been a while since I've been to the beach when the weather actually cooperated.

I was aware that we were getting dry here but yesterday and this morning have really made the point.  I ran the edger doing yard work yesterday and from the dust it kicked up you'd think there was a stampede from an old western movie coming out of my yard; the ground is just bone dry at the surface.  Then this morning I went out to pick up breakfast and there isn't a drop of dew on the grass.  Add that to the spots of grass already drying up and we're going to get into trouble in a hurry with the upcoming heat if we don't have some meaningful rainfall soon.

Complete opposite here. Oppressive humidity. Dew not drying until lunch. 95% humidity at the moment.

Same here its been dry for some time. This year started out super wet here like way above average but then i was missed by all the rain over and over. I did get a good storm/rain several days ago and i thought it was the start of things getting better but no. Now the forcast is all dry with 90s in June.  The ponds are still super low and the creeks was dry but now have puddles and small flow at points (probably from nearby rains and a little left from our rains few days ago). Yet still not even a d0 or nothing out in all of tennessee. But again i say all that and everything is still actually green out. Even the grass although its starting to yellow but not to the degree you would think.

I mean as much as i hate it. It is summer it happens. Definitely an early start we are having. Im curious to see what this years average temp ends up being because to me this year seems very hot besides 1 month that was cooler. And if the 100+ verifies then we could end up being close to the top 10 hottest years? Idk maybe thats a stretch or to early to even mention but just what im feeling.

Temperatures near 90 and low dewpoints (for June) are drying out the topsoil quickly here.  The high angle June sun is strong with the force of evaporation.

Considering the upcoming heat and humidity, I think we can take the "cancel" off this thread.  Summer's here, baby. 

Good to see rain chances slowly increasing for next week.  We started with 20-30%, and now after Sunday there are 40-50% chances across the board here in the foothills.  A cooling late afternoon thunderstorm would be welcome today, but not likely outside the mountains.

The ring of fire around the ridge is pretty far north for mid-June--from the plains northeastward to the Canadian border.  More like the dog days of August.  Stagnant pool of air circulating over us for now.

On another note , hereís the latest JMA for the winter period. Itís early but I like where we are headed for a weak to moderate Nino.

Got my Nest report on the 12th. Thought Iíd share. This shows how much energy I used in April vs May for heating/cooling. I averaged just under 5 hours of cooling a day. June will show a much higher usage Iím sure but, it will still an improvement over last year(I hope) and without a doubt better than our previous home. I did some maths and figured my a/c costs a little under $0.40 an hour to run.

Thatís a weak nino pattern that looks reminiscent of 2002-03 and 2009-10. The warmest waters are in the central pacific rather than off the South American coast. It usually leads to a consistently cold pattern with an active storm pattern in marginal cold air to support a winter storm track somewhere across the region.

The JMA in June is about like trying to pinpoint a land falling hurricane when itís 1000 miles away. It tried to predict the same Nino last year but we ended up with a weak to moderate Nina. I think this time the weak to moderate Nino has more staying power.

Dear Atlanta (aka "HOT-lanta),

Please change your nickname- those much further up the list scoff at your level of suffering...

Also- two quick PSAs- don't ever, ever, ever move to Texas- even if you get a 7 figure job offer, the heat will just kill you and please remember that a "dry" heat is actually really awful if it's 114 in the full sun (that time I went to Vegas in July).

We just released our new Sperling Heat Index, and Iím pretty excited about it.  It not only uses the average summer high temperature, but also includes the nighttime low temperature and dew point (a measure of humidity).

Of the 50 largest metro areas in the United States, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Houston have the hottest summers, and Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland have the coolest.

Click here to get the all the supporting data in a spreadsheet, including high temperatures, nighttime temperatures, dew point and relative humidity.

Our Sizzling Cities ranking is certainly about comfort, but itís also about safety.  For residents of all ages, extreme hot weather can be fatal.  Our Heat Index provides a way to predict how uncomfortable, and dangerous, summer in a city is likely to be.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 650 people die annually from heat-related causes.  In developing the new heat index, my research team examined past patterns of these deaths to hone the accuracy of our model.

Besides the obvious risk to the ill and elderly, young healthy adults and teens can also die because they are unaware of the risk of exercising in hot, humid weather.  High humidity can be especially deadly because it prevents sweat from evaporating and cooling the body.

The Sperlingís Heat Index is unique in that it includes the nighttime low temperature in the calculation.  According to experts, a lack of nighttime cooling can be more dangerous than an extreme daytime temperature. ďNighttime heat is especially bad,Ē said Eli Jacks, chief of fire and public weather services at the National Weather Service, ďbecause your body never has a chance to recover.Ē

Because of the humidity, the heat in Houston feels nearly as extreme as that in Las Vegas, even though Houston has an average July high temperature over ten degrees cooler.  After the desert metros of Phoenix and Las Vegas, the nationís top ďhotspotsĒ are found around the Gulf of Mexico, in the states of Texas, Florida, and Louisiana.

At the other end of the Sizzling Cities rankings are the Chill Cities, where residents can expect to enjoy a more comfortable summer than the rest of the nation.  As one might expect, Seattle, San Francisco and Portland are the three most comfortable places to spend the summer, followed by Denver, San Jose, and Buffalo.  These and other cool summer spots have a moderate high summer temperature, with cool evenings, and humidity that rarely becomes uncomfortable.

Hereís the full list of the 50 largest metro areas, ranked by the new heat index.

Also, that Knoxville was actually ever so slightly worse than Chatty (85.0 vs 84.8 ). Chattanooga, for the most part, always runs a degree or three hotter than Knoxville.  Could Knoxville have slightly higher dewpoints/humidity in conjunction with the nearby forested mountains?

I would guess that topography is likely in the Knoxville/Chattanooga comparison.  With regard to Huntsville, Huntsville is just plain hotter- it's both further south and west (higher average dewpoint and temperature).

Little Rock is warmer than Memphis- it's got an 89.6 average compared to Memphis's 89.3.  The ranking was only for the Top 50 metro areas (of which, Little Rock is not).  If Little Rock were a Top 50 metro, it would be ranked just ahead of Memphis at #13.  However, it would likely be much higher since a much more significant UHI would come into play if Little Rock were in the Top 50- likely adding at least a degree or two - perhaps even edging out Tampa for #10.  Personally, I'd still prefer Little Rock over some of the Florida cities simply due to the duration of their warm temperatures.

Seeing some hints on Twitter that long range Euro is starting to show quite the heat dome over our area. Please be wrong.  ::hot::

This won't likely materialize- we wasted all the heat early.  These models keep showing the flip back to hot and it's always 7 to 10 days away.  We've seen this play out many a time before and we all know how the story goes.  Perhaps if we're lucky, the pattern will reload and we'll get another chance at the heat by the end of July or early August.  Meanwhile, we'll just have to sit and endure the big  ::cold:: .

This is literally the only June i ever recall none of Tennessee being under any form of drought. Although we have been in the 90's all month. So strange to have this kind of heat and everything around me still green with very little rains in the past few months minus one or 2 decent storms.

NWS Huntsville found EF-2 damage in Cullman County, AL from the tornado yesterday. Another tornado occurred in Jackson County, AL but I do not think they have surveyed yet. Weak supercells have developed in NW Alabama once again this evening for the second day in a row.

Meanwhile, Lawrence County, TN took a hit from straight line winds for the second day in a row. The saturated soils probably had some impact, but that MCS produced damage all along southern TN.

For those who aren't fans of summa-time heat, Mr. Bailey is of the opinion the second half of summer will swing to cooler than normal, along with a cool autumn.  The emerging weak El Nino could play a part.  We'll see, but some long range models do show a cooling trend later this month.

Temps in the lower 90's and dewpoints in the mid 70's make for intense lightning storms, and I had one last evening.  The lightning was spectacular, and mostly cloud-to-ground strikes created some earth shaking thunder-claps.  A few were so close, you could hear it "sizzle" before the thunder exploded.  The neighbors fireworks sounded pretty wimpy by comparison.

Last night was the longest continual storm for thunder and lightning that I can remember in a long time, it ran about 2 and 1/2 hours at our house.  Out of all that we got maybe 5 minutes of rain, but the thunder rolled on forever.

The storms were rather compact rain-wise (I got .56"), but I noticed that even after the storm moved on and dissipated the anvil left over kept producing in-cloud lightning well after dark.  It was a highly charged environment.  Pretty cool.

The rain has been very spotty here over the weekend, as well.  Some areas had plenty, and many areas had none (my house).  Radar estimates showed some locations getting between 1-2 inches of rain, while within a mile or two of that heavy rain, almost nothing fell.  Typical summer-time storms.

It did rain at my work at lunch though and you can still feel the coolness (compared to like 90s). Also that Hurricane in the Atlantic has been moving so so slow imagine that near land that would be some major flooding. It barely moved like 30miles in 1day but its moving more now kind of i guess

The Euro and GFS has timing issues with the shortwave trough the first part of next week.The Euro shows a stronger trough,not sure which one to believe,but the GFS right now looks to be around 6hrs faster.The Upper ridge though is breaking down sooner than what was being shown which looks to be Saturday and not later.Could see some potential strong storms Monday,if the Euro is right these would go into the over night with the showalter index.Dont trust the Euro though with mesoscales this time of year.But we'll see.

Long range looks like another warm spell coming into the first week of August.The SOI rose to 13.85 today,this is more Nina,big jump of almost 28 points the last couple days.The weeklies tonight even look warmer during this time with the 850mb's getting even higher into 25c in some parts,this is a hot signal but just like this hot spell there is a upper level trough so this would be just a  transient hot spell as this would drop the heights back down,least that's what it shows right now.No signs of an Indian summer right now anyways

But anyways this afternoons models has some potential severe storms Friday.The Euro has some decent lift like the GFS of -9 and capes in excess of over 3k in Middle Tn.The abnormal Upper level trough for this time of year  brings some decent wind shear.So we'll see if the SPC puts us in a slight risk upcoming the next day or two.With the GFS and Euro both showing the instabilities it seems possible right now.But this looks more like any strong storms should die maybe with the loss of diurnal heating,looks like a decent capping inversion over night right now

Wow it's warmer where I am in Moscow than in Knoxville. 8pm right now on this side of the globe and the temperature is 75 F. It's been wet, but the weather is supposed to get hot and dry next week with temperatures approaching 90 F. I'm hoping to see some severe weather while I'm here. One of my  life goals is to witness severe weather in every country I visit.

Weak El NiŮo with the most anomalous SST warm in the mid Pacific perhaps? This is what you would get for December to March

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.

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.

Post Merge: August 02, 2018, 07:19:40 AM
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.

While I was in town, summer was very nice in Knoxville. There were a couple of weeks in May and June that got pretty hot, but other than that, we've had plenty of rainfall, avoided a drought, and never hit triple digits. Normally, there are at least one or two forecasts for triple digits each summer (for East TN), and we have not experienced that yet.

It's a safe bet we will not approach 100 this summer. We came very close last summer, peaking at 99F in late July shortly before record cold low temperatures.

Pattern looks stormier than usual heading into the fall.

With the exception of 2017, October has joined those months in seeming like the warm temperatures drag on forever. It's not abnormal anymore to reach 80 in the middle of October. Even that first week of November can be sticky and warm. After the first freeze last October, we were in the high 70s for the 1st week of November in Knoxville. It was gross.

Spring and fall are my two favorite seasons as far as outdoor enjoyment, and both have declined in duration over the last decade. The transition time between summer and winter has shrunk nearly out of existence--and probably another reason spring severe season has been a no-show.  A winter type weather pattern has lingered well into April the last several years.  Likewise, summer warmth seems to linger on well into late October.

Fall wildfire season won't have much spark if the current wet pattern continues.

Despite the drought in 2016, Tennessee has been fortunate not to have had a long-term or multi-year drought for some time now.  While drought pops up in areas of the state, and we have a dry summer or year from time to time, we usually erase it the following year.  You have to go back to 06-08 for a long lasting dry spell that came to an end in 2009.

To add to that Death Valley recorded the hottest month on record for any location on this planet last month.  It made our +1 to +2 above average F July seem pretty tame in comparison.


That's pretty incredible.  Hotter than even the Sahara, when they were setting their own records this summer.

How's the weather in Russia this summer?   ::coffee::

At times, hotter than Knoxville. The last week of July was consistently in the mid to upper 80s. High temperatures have cooled to the mid 70s now. The nights are chilly. I've been wearing a jacket in the early morning hours. It has also been pretty dry here. I've seen one thunderstorm and only a few days with rain.

Internet here is very sketchy. I use a proxy for everything.

I still hope to see the Rockies in person at some point, but the furthest west I've been is eastern Kansas.  Maybe you'll get to see some snow in August.  That would be a first, I'm sure.

Does anybody know if there is a way to look at archives of old WPC precip forecasts? I remember August 2013 being extraordinarily wet with no influence from tropical systems. I'd be curious to see some 7 day forecasts from that month. I think they were still HPC forecasts back then.

This weather "event" has underperformed in many areas.  I've yet to see a quarter inch, and most surrounding counties have seen under a half.  Certainly not the 1-2" forecast over the last two days.  Radar looks pretty anemic over east TN currently.  The widespread heavy rain didn't materialize here.

The only time I've seen a funnel of any sort was in a shower on a June day back in 2010 or so near the Tunica Cutoff. I don't think it qualified as a landspout and there weren't any others reported that day. Besides that, I've seen a rotating wall cloud as a 7-year old and on Super Tuesday.

 
Meanwhile, a smoke front...

Increasing smoke including a "smoke front" from the #MendocinoComplex can be seen edging southward into northern Yolo county. Smoke & haze also covers the #BayArea. Sat imagery seen here, loop is 5:52 pm to 6:47 pm, is used for smoke detection. Lighter gray over ocean is stratus.

The mid-week storm system that ushers in a taste of fall-ish weather really deepens as it heads from the Plains to the Great Lakes.  It's more like a late September system in terms of strength.  The 12Z GFS also shows quite the cold shot into southeastern Canada around 9/1 with snow possibly flying just north of Maine.

So this turned out to be a great learning experience for me. Had to change our plans for Longís Peak due to potential bad weather. We did flat top mountain instead. It was a shorter hike to 12300í. Didnít matter. The weather was absolutely horrible. The difference in conditions between 10000í and 12000í was insane. We had wind driven hail and rain with temps in the mid 30ís at the top. It was 55 degrees and calm at the trailhead. Iíve never been so cold in my life. We did make it all the way up though.

slowly warming temperatures, but still pleasant.

This has been a monsoon summer for southeast TN. 

Rainfall up in this area has been near normal to slightly skewed on either side depending on location.  Overall, a good summer growing season for most--not too much rain or too little east of the Plateau (in most areas).  As meteorological summer nears an end, I'd have to grade this summer an A for east central TN, or at least IMBY.  We've had no extreme long duration heat waves or drought.  The heat has been of a "normal" variety for summer, and being in Tennessee one has to expect a measure of the muggies.  At least, so far, the hottest temp at TYS this summer has been 95F.  Hopefully, we'll stay below the century mark for what time remains.

Sharing some pics from the one and only severe thunderstorm I saw during the summer.  It occurred at my folks house in KY in June.  Interesting storm in that, as it approached, it was still developing.  I could see the full structure of the building cumulonimbus, and a lowering cloud base below.  As it neared, I could definitely see some cloud rotation at the bottom.  Winds gusted over 60 as it hit, along with small hail.  A large cherry tree nearby was snapped off halfway up the tree.

Euro weeklies consistently cool the middle of the country in mid September and it speeds below normal normal eastward over almost the entire country by October.

Upper 80ís in September is still a bargain given some of those ridiculously long stretches of mid 90ís we see sometimes.

Sure its still hot, but this kind of September heat seems much more tolerable. Its actually pleasant outside in the mornings and evenings. I'm enjoying it, cold and dreary will be here soon enough.

Euro weeklies consistently cool the middle of the country in mid September and it speeds below normal normal eastward over almost the entire country by October.

Heat during the day is one thing, but I'm ready for some cooler nights.  I prefer the windows open while I sleep.  Listening to crickets on Alexa isn't quite the same.

As winter lingered into our spring, so does summer linger into our fall.

At this point, I would just be thrilled with a frontal passage and a change of airmass.  Not happening in the next 7 days.

yeah.  What Iím been hitting on... our finish line keeps getting pushed back further ... last nites euro wasnít impressive with the trough coming by day ten now ... much flatter... but it will be bit better than the air mass we have now ...

This sounds like the opening to a 70's soap opera... or a Bulwer-Lytton novel.
