Here we go with another month. We will be halfway through the year in 60 days. Unreal.

Outside of this weekend, 80’s are nowhere in sight through mid May. We may see some NW flow events but the cool pattern is going to stay. Absolutely zero complaints here.

Today is the 10-year anniversary of one of the most widespread and devastating events in West and Middle Tennessee.  We have been going through so much this year in 2020 with the tornadoes and COVID that we don't even fully realize the historic events of just 10 years ago.

Yep- I've been reflecting a lot on the events of that weekend. Crazy it's been a decade now.

Yep...figure that one is fairly easy. That was between the evening of Feb 10-11, 1994.

If you're wondering where this is from... the Iowa Environmental Mesonet has updated it's NWS Text archive to go back to 1993...so you can see all the various products being issued per office (as well as the national NWS centers) on a given day. Even now defunct products like the LFP and SFD (local forecast product and state forecast discussion). The stuff especially '95 and earlier is really scattershot so you may see something you may not... and gets more complete with time after that.

For TN...except for severe warnings...through the 90s again most stuff was issued on a state level so a lot of Middle/East TN events might be covered and found under the Memphis office. Things were a lot different in the NWS structure at that time. But...it's a fascinating new way to look into some events past.
