Quietly watching to the west to see what if anything can form MCS wise.  We are in a good spot for a long track derecho if things develop in the right way. Combined with bow earlier we could have a power free weekend for some in Memphis.

MEG is a little dismissive, but did mention the threat in the afternoon AFD.  There are also cells popping in west-central AR already so it's worth watching. Personally I get far more excited for derecho development than Tornados.

And with the snap of a finger...50,000 people in Memphis out of power to start  the holiday weekend.
I'm in your neck of the woods this weekend. Woke up to thunder in Horn Lake at 6. Scared the dog, and me, admittedly.

I laugh often in my line of work because I hear the phrase " The rainy season will be starting soon." When the **** has it ended in the last 3 years?

Right!  The Mississippi River has stayed close or at flood stage for not telling how many months out of the past 2 years.

Our climate has become a 9-month monsoon that starts in October and ends in late June or sometime in July depending on the year followed by Dantes Rings of H to the E to the double hockey sticks from Late July to at least early October sometimes a little later. 

With the growing La-Nina I pretty much expect this summer to be manageable through June maybe early July and then the SE Ridge takes over and doesn't let go from mid-July through October.   

Think 2005, 2010, 2018, 2019, with a splash of 2007.

The southern suburbs of the Windy City may be getting a bit windier.

It looks like we are going to have to deal with a cut off low all next week. Chance of rain and storms every day.

I was robbed of my Spring. I can even leave the country to get away from the tilt of the earth ending the greatest season on earth.

As we are likely to continue to see plenty of rain and high water in our Tennessee lakes in the near future please remember to be safe on the water this summer, especially near dams.  We again had a tragic fatality at Fort Loudon Dam near Knoxville yesterday when a fishing boat below the dam was unable to restart its motor and was pulled into the spillway discharge area.  One man miraculously survived, his friend did not and was found 3/4 of a mile downstream.  At the time of the accident the dam was spilling 250,000 gallons per second.  People simply can't imagine how much power is involved with that kind of flow rate.  Stay away from the areas immediately above and below dams; currents can be powerful, unpredictable, and deadly.  Let's hope that yesterday's tragedy will be the last one on our waterways this year.

We do have quite a juicy fetch coming up from the south.
