Northeast Tennessee may need to watch out for MCS events and heavy rain events through early August as that area will be right on the edge of the stronger ridging.  One can get some hefty storms along the flanks of building ridges.

I read a blog post from someone who posts from Missoula, MT and they said the smoke over there has been horrible this summer.  Washington, Idaho, Oregon, California, and British Columbia are standing on dire ground heading into core fire season (Aug-Oct) and if I was living there (especially in any area that has a history with fire) I would have a plan and kit and be ready to leave at a split second notice.

Yes this fire season could be catastrophic compared to others.  Crazy the amount of fires on this side of globe while other side catastrophic flooding.
Also we’re  heading into a possible really bad hurricane season.

Hurricane season does look rough.  I think the Cancun down to Belize area is probably going to get popped sometime in August due to the merged ridging, but analogs really want to focus in on a FL and/or East Coast threat later on in the season (September/October) which may also be our ticket out of the pattern we are looking to emerge into.

I do believe this is the worst smoke that I have ever experienced. You can literally look at the sun.

We had it far worse during the fires in the Smoky Mountains several years ago but those were practically next door. Seeing this much smoke from something so far away is mind blowing. I can't say it's doing much good for my lungs or sinuses either... ::cough::

Man it is crazy. We were outside yesterday afternoon at 7 facing west and normally the sun is roasting hot at that time in this spot but the haze was so thick it was like being shaded almost. Very cool evening seeing the full red sun and full moon in the sky at the same time.

Some places along the KY/IN border had Code Red air quality at times yesterday morning.

It does look like after frying through Day 7 that Middle and East TN may get some slight relief from being glanced by troughs.

The evening the fire near Gatlinburg became intense, I drove home in what looked like dense fog.  My deck was covered in a fine, white ash.  It was then I knew this fire was unusual and dangerous.  If not for the weak cold front that gave us about a half inch of rain around midnight (along with calming winds), the outcome would have been even worse.

Nice find. Sadly for that decade, that was the best Memphis could do.

Outside of the 3 winters that were worth a darn in the 90s the only thing that Memphis was able to get from them was the 94 Ice Storm.  Come to think about it if it wasn't for Mt. Pinatubo the 90s may have been worse than the 2000s even outside of Memphis.   

That winter weather and cold snap of January 1997 I am pretty sure was the only major cold shot that winter.  In a way, 1996-97 was the inflection point between classic winter and our modern winters.

This has gotta be one of the most boring stretches of weather I've ever experienced in my life. It's time for some MCS's to come sweeping through.
