Like they say, the number of foggy mornings in August tells us how wide the stripes will be on the woolly worms, which means that's how many times we expect to see snow in the winter, which may or may not have any relation to how much, if any, snow actually falls.  ::rofl::

Don't forget about the height of the hornets' nests and the spider webs.

Bring it on! But only as long as it doesn’t set us up for a big switch come winter and we torch.
More than not, extended summer into October usually is not a good signal for a cold winter. The coldest winters I could find had mostly BN temps. The winter of 1917-18 was just a ridiculous cool fall followed by a brutal December and January. Fall temps in 2000 (after the awful late summer torch) were BN and then led to one of the coldest December’s on record.

Winter aside, it’s time for football weather and autumn colors for me.

Sounds great to me.  Let’s hope for some cool fall weather and good UT football this year!

Bowling Green had 16 days in a row where the temperature never got higher than 38 degrees in January 1918.  I am pretty confident that we won't see anything quite that intense in our lifetimes.

Here recently parts of Montana did throw up a -25 departure from normal in February 2019.  So an extremely cold month can still happen every now and then.

January 2018 was one of the coldest stretches I can remember in awhile. NW TN went in the deep freeze for much of the month with a big sleet/snow event. I am not sure if the actually highs but I know we lost about 2 weeks of duck season due to 4-6 inch ice you could walk on.  Reelfoot lake froze over solid I believe.

Didn’t Memphis do this like a year or two ago? When Texas lost its power grid?

Starting tomorrow, MRX radar is expected to be down for 14 days to perform upgrades. They have a plan to use several regional radars to maintain coverage, so it will be interesting to see how well things work.

Memphis had 9 days in a row of below freezing in Feb 2021, which is pretty impressive as well.  I don't think that had occurred since Dec 1989.

Dallas, TX is experiencing a very similar situation as St. Louis and Eastern KY experienced earlier this summer.

Some areas should end up with locally 12-14 inches of rain by the end of the day.

OHX is talking over for Dallas/Ft. Worth.  It seems like the flooding has triggered a communication failure for the area.

Wow- that's crazy. I wonder why an office closer by out there didn't take over.
