Field corn starting  get very dry around here… needs a drink bad… ::hot::

A large deal of Tennessee has been fairly dry this month. It has been very wet in the Deep South and very wet along I-44, but so far we have dodged the significant rains.

We do have our chances coming up in the coming days though plus southern parts of the state are getting some rain due to Danny.

I don’t think it has been this dry here in 3 or 4 years. Union City area got a flood last week but we missed it.

Same here.  I've only seen 2.18" of rain this month.  By far, the driest June since 2016. 

A good amount of rain is in the forecast Thursday and Friday.   I'll believe it when it happens.  I've seen many a wet forecast turn to very little in reality this month.

Portland, OR hit 111F sitting an all-time record high and there was a location in British Columbia that hit 115F yesterday sitting the all-time high-temperature record for Canada.

2020 saw a record number of acres burned by wild/forest fires in the west.  Unless things change, I'd say 2021 will beat it.

I saw a news clip about the 22 year drought affecting part of the west around the Colorado River basin.  Many say this could be a new normal--the southwest becoming more arid than semi-arid.  That doesn't bode well for huge cities that depend on water from a shrinking river.

While there has certainly been a notable gap between the haves and have-nots in the rainfall department this month, most of Tennessee has been near-average to above-average for rainfall in June. We are above-average for June here on the northern plateau. To be fair, the bulk of the rain came in the first 10 days of the month, but I certainly wouldn't say it's been an exceptionally dry month by any means.

I think eastern areas have been drier than most from the Plateau westward.  Before the 1-1.5" of rain that fell a few weeks ago, the Drought Monitor had us in "stage 1" drought conditions (abnormally dry).  Hopefully, we'll get a good soaking later this week.
