We finally experienced a decent rain in my neighborhood yesterday (it was very localized).  At 0.75 inches, this was the heaviest single rain we've had since Father's Day and represents almost one-third of the total amount we have received since that date.  It has been a very dry summer in the Lascassas Valley so far.

The Lascassas Valley area has experienced a dramatic change of fortune with most areas between Walter Hill and Woodbury picking up at least two inches of rain since Saturday evening.  My backyard has received 2.75 inches with barely a puddle to show for it.  Much needed rain indeed.

Parts of East Tennessee, especially around Knoxville, are still quite dry.  Hopefully that area will get a good soaking from what is left of Fred.

The Dixie Fire is approaching Susanville, CA town of 18k and the general US 395 corridor that runs along the edge of the Sierra Nevada. 

There is another bad one in the El Dorado National Forest or about halfway point between Lake Tahoe and Sacramento.

The Pigeon River in E TN is in major flood (from remnants of Fred).

East TN has had a very wet August so far.   

That is good news as it may help keep ridging later this month into September at bay and hopefully help us avoid a 2019 situation.

Here is an odd one: tomorrow’s MRX high temp forecast.
Chattanooga 94
Knoxville 94
Kingsport 96

Maybe some downsloping component? Not sure why NE TN would be warmer than SE. I guess it could be related to the very high ground moisture present here now.

South Lake Tahoe or at least outlying areas to the southwest may be in trouble due to the Caldor Fire.

I know this is an area NashvilleWX tends to visit especially in the winter/early spring.

It's a torchfest up here. Not a sign of immediate relief, but we're looking to cool down by early September. Towns around Central NY are clocking in the lower 90s.

While that's just another day in Tennessee for late August, this is about 15 degrees above normal.

I was ready for fall back in July. After this blazing August, which I was afraid of after a pleasant first half of summer, I'm more than ready.

Give me a good post frontal cloudy, 55 degree, fall leaves blowing around type of day...that's my weather.
