It is a bit ahead of the norm, particularly for Vermont. That state is peak in later June to early August, with the ultimate peak in the first 10 days of July.

Ha! Well the sun is ridiculous quiet for sure. There is a lag time for just about every long term weather effect so we shall see. I do like warm weather- just no endless mid 90ís or above. I think I will be out of luck at some point this summer.

I enjoy warm weather also but the relentless sauna that west Tennessee can be sucks.

Looks like our first 90 degree day of the year may fall on my birthday, 5/24. Thatís actually very late. Weíve hit 90 in mid March before. And last October we hit 100 twice. So the cool season had a very late start and a corresponding late finish.

Happy early birthday, homie! Hope 32 treats you well.

I for one don't mind the delayed hot weather. That nasty heat last October did a number on me. I hated it.

Thatís a pretty impressive bowing structure entering Dickson. Iím surprised it doesnít have a warning on it. Looks like 50-60mph on radar.

I'm watching the lightning from my couch, looking out my back door. 50+ miles away.

"Heat" lightning, as it were.

Things could get interesting for some of us this evening per MRX:

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest North
Carolina...east Tennessee and southwest Virginia.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms are expected late this afternoon and
tonight, some of which will be capable of producing locally heavy
rainfall that may lead to flooding. Some of the stronger storms
may also have the potential to producing damgaing wind gusts and
an isolated tornado.

Decent little cell with a good bit of thunder coming through West Knoxville at the moment.  Feels like a classic summer afternoon storm.

Looks like we are going to wind up with more than 2Ē of rain from these storms tonight. It also looks like essentially daily chances for the next 7 days. That first 90 degree day may be further off than I thought.

EDIT: I actually wound up with 3.50" in the bucket this morning. It poured almost all night.

I was 10 and that's when I got obsessed with weather....in lewis county we got the hailcore from the f4 in Lawrence county ...I kid you know it was grapefruit...we had massive hail damage...there are a few pics of that wedge f4 on ohxÖ.some of that damage I still say was an f5 but just my opinion...much like I still think a small section of the cookville storm was also f5, but high end f4 or f5 is like splitting hairs
