Flooding concerns rising in the Brentwood/S Nashville area. Stationary boundary dumping some serious rainfall.

I’m surprised we don’t have more flash flood warnings out for southern middle TN. Looks like a pretty large area of 4-5” has fallen so far today. The convection is in no hurry to work southward either.

I think we're going to end up having a great fall color season because of this soaking rain statewide. The timing is almost perfect.

I’ve seen that go both ways. Sometimes the trees need a little stress to show the most color. Sogginess can result in a lot of brown. I’m working on some data for what I hope will lead to an informative post about our rainfall excess since 2016. Spoiler alert: it’s very significant.

You need balance.  You don't need drought, but you also need those chilly/dry airmasses and lows consistently going into the 30s/40s at times as well.

I thought last year had a pretty good balance and a pretty good year with lots of yellows, oranges, and golds.

It sure has felt like the active tropicals lately!  We are back under a flash flood warning again.  It started at 5 a.m. and still coming down. I have never seen it rain this much in August and September.  Those are usually our driest months.

I am new to the Spencer area and everyone we talk to mentions how wet it has been in August and September. We are nearing 6-inches since Saturday and it's pouring again. I am not complaining after years of living in San Jose where the average rainy season is 12 inches per year. The annual rain average in Spencer shows as 55 inches, but I am currently at 23 inches since late June, so I am thinking this year will blow those numbers away. Are Octobers normally pretty wet in middle Tennessee?

First of all, welcome!

In normal years, August, September, and October are the driest months in Tennessee, but not by very much. All months of the year average at least 3" of precipitation with the maximum occurring in the spring at 5-6" per month. Tennessee's climate classification is Cfa (Humid Subtropical) and there is no true dry season here.

Although our changing climate suggests the Tennessee Valley is getting a little rainier, what we've experienced this year is very abnormal.

Welcome!

If memory serves, October is statistically the driest month of the year in Middle TN.

Welcome!

I am wondering if this might be a record wet September.
