Prior to today, Paducah has hit 80 degrees or higher on every May 29th since 2010 and has hit 70 degrees or higher on every May 29th since 1993.

Today's high for Paducah, KY:
58F

The Christian County Mesonet site hit 57F.

I'm glad we don't have boring weather.

This weekend at the lake you can enjoy a fire at the beginning of the weekend then be on the water at the end of the weekend.

I wouldn't mind if you just copied and pasted Memorial Day's weather itself for about 60% of the summer of course we would need to allow for more humidity and rain the other 40% so we don't end up in the serious drought. A crisp start with highs in the upper 70s/lower 80s and sunshine with lower humidity. 

Although I like my 50s/60s and occasional cloudy days, they need to be in their time we don't really need them between May 15th and September 1st. That is almost as bad as a 90 degree October day. We got to have all our 4 seasons.

I'll be honest.  I didn't believe the forecast. Theres no way I thought.  We hit the TN River and I'm not sure if we even got to the forecast high. I was cold.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

The latest CVSv2 puts most of Tennessee and points north and east in the frying pan for June.  Some nasty ridging that almost looks like a Greenland Block merging with a Bermuda Ridge looks to be centered over Ontario is the main feature.   

The Desert Southwest ridge is cranking and serious water and water rights issues may develop in Arizona/Utah/Western Colorado if the summer Monsoon and the following fall-winter period doesn't help out.

This past May finished about 2 to 3 degrees below average at least for West and Middle TN.  It was also a very active severe weather month for West and Middle TN as well and probably the most active severe weather May since 2003. With over 20 tornadoes across the state (including at least 14 on the morning of the 3rd), a widespread damaging wind event on the 6th, and tornadoes on the 9th and 30th as well. The one north of Memphis was an EF-1 and I believe everything else was an EF-0. East TN largely dodged the main severe weather.

It was a good month if you love severe weather but don't love destruction.  The direct opposite of a year like 2006 or 2020 where we had fewer tornadoes but the ones we did have were stronger, more destructive, and deadly.

Despite a long cool, dry spell in the middle, I ended up with 5.6" of rain in May.
