Well I can’t give an accurate yearly rain total yet due to the coming precip tomorrow, but I think I have a new record. I was at 45.4” when I switched weather stations on June 19. I have had 30.78” since then (more than half of that from tropical systems) for a total so far of 76.18”. 3rd year running over normal, and the second consecutive year with 70”+. We’ve been living in a bonafide temperate rainforest for the past 3 years.

Yeah, pretty sure models had us around 8-10" but lost a lot of that to heavy rain below freezing. Ended up being a pretty nasty ice storm with a few inches of snow on top. I think in my backyard, if my memory is correct, it finally switched over around 28 degrees. One of the more frustrating winter storms I've endured.

A lot of people had water damage from the ice damns in their gutters. I remember going around and beating the gutters with a pole a couple of times. Awful.

Yeah, that "ice jam" event was awful. We had water damage at the church building from ice blocked gutters causing water to back up, and I think melting on the roof exploited leak spots. I think it was exasperated with a rain event a few days after the sleet event. Scraping ice off the sidewalk was like chiseling away concrete.

921MB low maybe.

The western Aleutian Islands will get to find out tonight as they ring in the New Year with a potential record-breaking storm.

We ended the year with 58.34 inches of rain here in the Lascassas Valley.  That is about ten inches above average and about ten inches less than we received in 2019.   ::rain::

2020 was the wettest year I've seen since moving to TN in 2003.  61.46" was recorded, but I was out of town much of July.  Despite a wet year, I only had 1.04" in July (or thereabouts).  Several young trees I had planted last year were nearly defoliated when I returned.  That dry trend was quickly reversed in August, and thereafter, thanks to the tropics sending one storm after another toward the Southern Appalachians.  The busy 2020 hurricane season definitely saved this area from an autumn drought.

West and Middle TN mostly finished December with +1 to +2 departures from normal with East TN ranging from -1 to average, which is good for our second coldest December since 2010 for most areas, which just shows you how warm December has been this past decade.

Thanks for the update... After checking the NOWdata on NOAA's website, I get the below departure data for December, 2020.

Memphis +.4 (Used data from Memphis WFO instead of the Airport)
Nashville +1.3
Chattanooga +1.1
Knoxville -.9
