The reason our country is having so many heatwaves is because we have so many more thermometers! More than any other country! If we stopped looking at thermometers now, we would have very few days over 80F, if any.

And how @#*%($! messed up is this year that we're wishcasting snowstorms in the July thread?  ::shrug::

My First Winter 2020-21 Forecast:

An actual cold and snowy December for the Eastern 2/3rd of the USA as people will begin to freak out and panic at the fact that snow is actually falling in for December and the models never show a +10 to +15 warming trend for Christmas people will panic.  There will be a run on shovels, break, milk, just like in March except replace TP with shovels and snowblowers.  This will lead to chaos in the atmosphere leading to a record warm January and a few days into February the end of the world.

This year may be competitive with 2020 as the worst year ever.

Perhaps Comet NEOWISE will salvage 2020. I failed to get up early for the morning show(s). Saved it for the evening encores, which could be easier viewing higher in the sky.

In rural areas Tuesday evening it was barely visible just above the northwest horizon but in twilight. Binoculars helped according to the people who went out. I hadn't planned on getting to a rural area and really trying until the weekend. Haze and t-shower debris may hinder the next couple evenings in parts of Tennessee.

Weekend into next week the comet will get a little higher in the sky each night. Hour after sunset northwest. Should be visible in rural areas (hopefully tail). Maybe in town (fuzzball at least). Binoculars will help esp with tail. I am hoping for the whole deal unaided eye just because that's what makes a great comet.

Few t-showers are still forecast weekend into next week, but the higher ridge heights should reduce activity. Positive vibes for 2020. A decent comet could do that!

I’ve been sitting in a Kroger parking lot in Atoka TN for about 45 minutes waiting out a crazy storm cell that is stationary and growing. Some incredible lightning, a wee bit of tiny hail, some gusts of wind, but the biggest is the torrential, non-stop downpour. Parking lot is littered with others waiting it out, everyone is traveling slowly on northbound Hwy 51 with their hazards on. Pretty spectacular summer storm.
We have missed out on all the rains the rest of the state has been getting the last few weeks...as is evident from our dehydrated lawn!

Last night was the first time this year that I failed to drop below 70 degrees for a low temp. 70.9 was the minimum after a high yesterday of 95.9.

The HRRR did really well with the dissipation of storms this afternoon as that line entered Middle TN.

I live in Atoka, recent reports are just that the road (Hwy 51, north of Tipton Road) was flooded and littered with debris, numerous accidents. Lots of photos in the local Facebook groups I could snag if anyone’s interested. That area and those businesses always flood. I was parked at Kroger just north of that. My husband was trying to head south on Hwy 51 and was turned around.

Our neighborhood was poorly planned and several hundred houses are in danger of flooding when rains like this happen. Too much water too fast and nowhere for it to go. And we’ve been nearly dry for several weeks.

The “hundred year flood” that happened two years in a row (2010/2011) was awful for the residents and businesses of our little towns. The whole region, really!

Thank YOU for the report. I hadn’t yet gone out to the Facebook world to see what all was happening out there. Had no idea - just assumed a wreck was why my husband was turned around. The dips in the highway generate lots of hydroplaning accidents.

If two "one hundred year" events happened consecutively, would that make the whole situation a ten thousand year event?

Unfortunately that's not how statistics works. If you flip a coin 9 times and get heads all nine times, what is the probability of getting heads on a 10th throw? Still 50%. Odds of getting a 100 year flood are the same each year regardless of what happens the year before.
