Looking a lot like last summer. Very dry Mid May through July.  The MS is already forecasted to be at only 6 feet next week. That is really low going into the dry season.  I would not be surprised to see barge issues by the end of month or early July if there is no rain.

Last year, the biggest impact we saw in Mid TN (and most didn't realize) was on fuel prices. Most of the terminals in Nashville, which also supply fuel to several states, are on the pipeline. However, the ones that aren't on the pipeline are fulfilled via barge. When those terminals couldn't get product, it caused an overdraw on the pipeline (and Colonial wasn't sending more) and resulted in a false shortage. I spent many days late last summer going back and forth to Chattanooga to get diesel because Nashville didn't have any.

I do not wish for a repeat of that.

May temperatures were about the climatological mean for most of Tennessee, with East Tennessee being cooler than normal. Elsewhere, it was pretty  ::blowtorch::, especially in Canada. The Southeast and Gulf Stream cold anomalies are just a blip on the map compared to record warmth in western Canada.
