We got nothin' yesterday or the day before.  It rained once during the month of June IMBY, and that shower just before Father's Day amounted to about 1/3 inch.  The past five weeks have been incredibly dry for the Lascassas Valley.

Hopefully this awful pattern will relent a little by mid month.

All we’ve seen at our house are brief “evaposhowers” over the last couple of days which leave briefly spotted streets which only serve to amp up the surface humidity. Oh for one of those gully washers some have seen.

The north half of Davidson County really hit the jackpot in the last week. Some got as much as 3” of rainfall, after almost a month with just a trace. Even some areas south of I-40 got a decent downpour yesterday. I was getting worried about grass fires, even though fireworks are technically illegal here.

I lost the rain lottery all week. Just had a quick one pop up right on the house. Only 1/4", but I'll take it.

Even with the rain we have had this heat is drying it up fast.  My yard has turned green but already today shows stress again.  Mowing the yard was oppressive.  This summer is relentless so far.  If stays this hot & dry till August we will have some serious fire dangers going into fall. Especially with the lower humidity & less precip months.  My brothers house in Lebanon has had no rain.  His yard has cracks that look like earthquake cracks.

We haven't had significant rainfall in my place since Mid-June.  We get some light showers here and there but nothing to amount to anything.  We also haven't mowed since then either.

We do have a consistent showing of at least some subtle troughing in about Day 9-10 on all 3 major model ensemble runs (Euro, Canadian, and GFS) as the ridge center starts to move back towards the Desert Southwest.

West TN will still probably be at the edge of ridging, but it could be way out of drought issues for a period of time for the Plateau and East TN.

I was still at 80 degrees at 10:00 pm last night. I know that's commonplace in the more urban areas, but it doesn't happen all that much out in the country around here. Sure sign of a dog days heat wave.

The Dog Days are from around the 4th of July to Mid August.  Its definition comes from space and not necessarily the weather although it does correspond to the hottest/most humid part of the year for most areas (including us since our peak is typically Late July/Early August).  It is called that due to Sirius the head of the Canis Major constallation rising into the night sky.

I’m not cut out for this kind of weather. Anyone else get irrationally irritable when it gets this hot? 😂

We are getting some cloudcover which has knocked the temperature down a few degrees but the humidity is horrendous.  Probably one of the worst feeling days since 2012.

101 at KMEM with a feels like 112. At least there is some hope on the horizon later this weekend- albeit relative.
