Quite the cell just popped up over Eastern Davidson and pushed east over us. Lots of lightning, high winds, heavy rains. Quite enjoyable. Always a welcome relief in the middle of the day in late July.

Power even went out for a few minutes. Luckily, it's back on.

Looks like we *might* get a rare cold front passage for late July next week with a brief drop in DP's into the 50's. That usually means 80's for highs...but maybe some nice "cool" mornings for a couple days.

Gosh I hope not!  Please stay hot and dry!  Cool fronts this time of year make it that much worse when September is blazing hot.  Iíd prefer to see 90-100 until the first week of September, then let a few cool shots start filtering in.

*Edit, just checked the 15 day forecast and do not like what I am seeing. WAYYY to many 87-89 degree days forecasted for this time of year.

88-90 degrees this time of the year are actually pretty normal high temperatures- maybe a degree or two below for some locations. Temperatures in the mid 90s are a couple degrees above average.

To elaborate on this, Memphis, which is the hottest place in Tennessee, has an average high temperature of 92 in July and 91 in August. Nashville is 2⁰ cooler: 90 in July and 88 in August.

No sir, I need the morning cool down. I have trail cameras to put out and miles of scouting to do!

Iím rooting for a shake up. Donít need more bearable and wet summers, need Hot unbearable and dry.  Jeez a third wet and bearable summer  in a row is awful, will probably lead us right into a junk fall and winter.  But hey yíall enjoy your cool weather I guess.

I'm really not trying to be a contrarian here, but 2 to 3 weeks without rain anywhere in Tennessee is abnormally dry. In the summer months, it's typical to expect brief rain like we've been having every few days or so. We average close 4 inches of rain in July, equal to approximately 1/8th an inch of rain each day if evenly distributed.

August, September and October is certainly our "dry" season, with rainfall decreasing to an annual low of 3 to 3.5 inches per month.

If you can get yourself some pretty significant elevation (think about some of your higher elevation towns/cities in Northern Arizona and Utah) then you have in my opinion one of the best 4-season climates in the world.

It's so nice to finally have some rain where I live. I am trying to keep my vegetables going & the lack of rain has not helped. We were passed over by the rain until today.  City water is not as good as the free stuff.

Iíd gladly give you some of the rain I have been getting. Freaking tomatoes are cracking bc they are growing faster than the skin can keep up. Squash is mildewy bc it stays damp. Oh the joys of a garden. Doesnít help when itís about a 1/4 acre big lol.

I'm in Ashland City, Cheatham County. Everything seem to die out before it got to us. It was miserable. The only plus was that for the first time this year I could skip mowing for a week.
