We got close to 3/4 overnight here. Havenít had rain in my yard yet this month. We really needed it. My ground will be happy for a few days.

This afternoonís setup is providing a rare visibility of distant storms. The early complex has cleared the air with blue skies. I was in a place with a low horizon a little while ago and spotted some nimbus tops way off to the north. I pulled up radar and saw the closest activity were cells along the Ohio River between Evansville, IN, and Louisville. Wow.

The storm near Louisville has 40k tops.

Hereís something else of interest. The earlier storms blew a gust front over the Memphis metro. It seems to have stalled over the MS River... kind of like a sea breeze front except itís coming from the river. Temps to the southwest of the boundary are mid 90ís...noticeably cooler to the East.

Only got grazed with the MCS this morning. Very little rain, but the cloud cover means that the predicted high of 93 isnít going to happen. Actual high so far: 76. Not bad. I got a lot of outside work done in comfort.

Winter 2010-11 Snowfall: 15.5 in. :)
Winter 2011-12: Trace

Winter 2013-14: 10.6 (9.5 on 2/12)

A lot of wind damage in Obion and Gibson counties this morning. Over 50 power poles down in Kenton. Looks like the gates of **** are about to knock on the door. Gonna be bad here but Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma  are going to fry. No end in sight on GFS.

It does look like the worst of it will be to our west and then to our north.  So we will definitely get hot and humid and probably have Heat Advisory or flirt with it for a while, but we are not in the latter levels of Dante's Inferno at this time.  More like 2017 and less like the 2007 and 2019 that I feared initially.  2017 like ridge placement does come with a price if it lasts well into August and especially September though.

15 day shows this heat wave lasting into early next week, bring it on.  The hotter the summer the better my duck seasons tend to be!

I agree there... seems like in past hotter summer we had the winters were colder, not sure if there is any science to that, it just seems like hotter summers translates to a colder winter in past.
Come on severe wx season...

We have seen hot summers leading to cold winters the most recent being 2010 leading to 2010-11. 1935 leading to 1935-36 is another example but we have several that go the opposite route like 2011 leading to 2011-12 and 2019 leading to 2019-20 and even in the past with several examples in both the 1930s and 1950s. 

Overall there doesn't appear to be a significant correlation one way or another on this.

Iím all for any pattern change to switch up the past 2 years.  Those that were going by models and thinking the heat wave was going to be over by Thursday or Friday appear to be wrong. Looking like itíll be here awhile longer.
