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.
That's the way it's been for me the last couple of years. This year the squash has been drying up. My beans & peppers have been doing great & the tomatoes pretty good. But we have not had any rain since late June to amount to anything. It seems it's either feast or famine.

Where are you located?

wmp600 and I have been getting shut out. I'm in SW Williamson County.

I am located in Dyer Coubty. Seems I have caught every little cell that passes by.

We had that the last couple of years. We go more rain today. I know it's bad when the weeds are wilting.

All kinds of mid to upper 80ís forecasted for the next 15 days.  Watch, come dove season and woodduck/teal season opener itíll be 98 degrees. Then opener of bow season will be the same, wonít be able to buy 80ís. 🤦‍♂️

Yep. My extended range forecast high temperatures have been scaled down to the 85-88 degree range. It looks steamy and stormy going into August.

I second the disdain for a cooler than normal August followed by a hot September. Those summers are terrible. Cool Septembers are hard to come by these days. It's hard to believe the daily average high for a mid-September day in Nashville is about 83 based on 1981-2010 normals. The past few years make it seem like 90 would be normal.

Now if the mid 80ís would stay through the rest of summer and lead into fall I would be okay with that.  But what is going to happen is we are going to acclimate to slightly cooler temps and lower humidity and BAM! the switch will flip and weíll be 95 and humid after we were getting ready for some fall in September.

It used to be 79 I believe but the warmth of the 2000s pushed it to 83.  I wonder if the 1991-2020 normal would push it to like 85 or even 86.

Saw Comet Neowise again Thursday 7/23, after a couple cloudy nights. However we had to compromise on viewing location. Lookout Mountain was cloudy Thursday evening, so we dropped into Georgia. Monday 7/20 was second of two great nights on Lookout Mountain.

Friday was cloudy again here, and I think most of Tenn. Hoping for some clearing Chattanooga west this Saturday eve. Could happen after thunderstorms overturned the atmo. Barring new development. Pictures from Monday (darker) and Thursday (more color) are attached.

Nice!

The evenings this week here havenít been conducive to see much... too many storms around and/or leftover clouds have obscured the sky at that time of day. It doesnít help that urban light from Nashville is also in that part of the sky where Iím located.

To me itís been a great summer so far.  Humid yes and hot at times but having rain every 2-3 days is perfect to keep everything green.  Iím still mowing my yard 2 times a week and itís almost August!

It has been a tale of two summers here precipiation wise at my location. June to Early July was overall pretty dry and I went 2 and half weeks without needing to mow the yard and was getting concerned about a drought.  After the 4th of July now I can't buy a day that doesn't seem to have at least some showers and/or a rumble of thunder. It is getting hard to mow because it is so humid and you can't buy a lot of time for the grass to dry out.

Two and a half weeks without mowing, holy crap! I think the longest I have probably ever been able to go is maybe a week!

Over all we have had 3 wet summers in a row around here. Last year was actually wetter up to this point because of the hurricane that come through here.
