Interesting evening yesterday.  A very tiny, isolated storm developed as I drove home from work.  Apparently, it was strong enough to produce something akin to a microburst, as the rain shaft and the associated updraft collapsed.  The road on the way home was covered with small twigs and leaves when I drove through where the storm moved through.  There was also running water on the sides of the road, so it really dropped a deluge over a small area. 

MRX says more could come over the following days:

Quote
Locally heavy rain and lightning strikes will be the main impacts,
but DCAPE increasing to near 1000 J/kg and steep low-level lapse
rates could allow for isolated wet microbursts.
"For many years I was self-appointed inspector of snowstorms and rainstorms, and did my duty faithfully, though I never received one cent for it.."

MRX wasn't kidding with their forecast - we went from hot and sunny to thunder with a frog-strangling rain in just a few minutes.  This means I don't have to water the garden tonight!  ::rain::

40 mph wind and reports of hail have bumped this up to a SWA for Knox and Anderson counties, pretty good little storm for us.

And the SWA got bumped to a Severe Thunderstorm Warning. This on got bad enough I squeezed the truck into the garage in case of hail but we got lucky and didn't see any.

There is not a death ridge showing up on models yet. Looks like carbon copy normal dog days of summer for the next 10 days or more. Actually a little cool down in the long range but we will see if that happens.

The trend this summer, in general, is probably to ride the edge of the stronger ridges similar to how we did in 2016 and even last year.   That means that we will still be prone to summertime popups and maybe even another MCS event here or there to go with our hot, hazy, and humid.

If we just get to the low 90ís on a regular basis ...Iím ok. Itís the endless 95 to 100 days that linger well into September that irk me. As Dyer mentioned, LR globals picking up on a cool air mass in about 10 days infiltrating the central US. I can handle this kind of summer if we get occasional breaks. After all, we are only about 60 days from metrological fall.

The Mississippi River continues to be above flood stage. It is currently 6 feet above flood. Today makes 140 consecutive days and all but 5 days this year. There are thousands of acres in Lauderdale and Dyer counties that will not get planted this year.

Ok gotcha - you sounded perturbed. I donít think anyone has an expectation that highs will be below 80 for at least 60-90days. I thought I was explicitly clear regarding my dislike for endless mid 90ís but now Iím being redundant.

Anyone seen the freak hail storm pics from Guadalajara? Pretty amazing. Feet of hail accumulated. I didn't even know that was possible.

Pretty amazing- the cars looked like they were dodging icebergs in the streets.

How about this straight line wind video from South Texas last week?
