Title: Summer 2019 Thread - To sweat or not to sweat, that is the question.

It's around the corner, may as well get the thread going.  Here's to hoping we manage 4 or 5 pages here by September.  ::hot:: ::sleeping::

Per my weather station, at 1 pm it's 86 with a dewpoint of 70 giving a heat index of 91.  Yep, it's summer.

The one disadvantage to living in the woods after a wet spring is: trees full of water make my environment more humid thanks to transpiration.   ::hot::  My dewpoint is significantly higher than Knoxville's, where they remain in the lower 60's.

I'll take a relatively low chance of above normal temps for a summer forecast in East TN.  Naturally this comes out as we're forecast to challenge if not break record high temps at the end of this week, but the season isn't defined by a single week.

Here's to hoping for good summer heat for pools/river activities ...but with lower dew points :)

I remember the heat wave year of 2012 . Even though we were hitting 108 to 115 every day for about 8 days here in lewis county, it was a dry desert type of heat...that felt MUCH better than 90 degrees with a 70 plus dew point.

While that's a temperture forecast, it looks very wet to me.  A mean trough just to our west would not only keep the Gulf of Mexico wide open, but would set up a boundary right over us, enhancing lift and rainfall.  Storms would be around almost daily.  Reminds me of 2013.

The same 3 month outlook says little chance of widespread, extreme drought anywhere in the U.S. this year.

Certainly looks like frequent troughing is going to be a thing and the polar jet may have spurts of above normal strength for summer.  This has been the case for the past few summers.  West TN looks stormy to me in this general setup.  :)

I hope so... with the forecast over the next week, we're cutting into that surplus of rainfall we received earlier in the year. I turned on the sprinklers last night, because it's about to be hot and dry for several days.

You don't have to tell me twice.  I absolutely hate long stretches of oppressive heat.  Its awesome occasionally for lake trips and swimming and such, but I need variety in my weather.  One of the main reasons I won't move to Las Vegas despite probably being able to advance in my job faster there.

It gets event worse once the ground drys up and those heat ridges anchor in place and you get weeks without a drop of rain.  ::blowtorch::  At least we have a long way to go there as wet as its been for the past several months.

I've learned to appreciate wet patterns that can wear on your nerves with too much rain.  I would rather be too wet than too dry. 

And despite an extremely wet pattern from late last year until now, just one week without rain in this heat will begin to dry out the topsoil.  There may be plenty of moisture deeper in the ground, but most food crops can't touch it, along with the widely planted fescue in most lawns.  Yes, too much rain has it's own problems, but too little water is worse.  Life wouldn't exist here at all without it.

And speaking of too little water, this has got to be the driest 7 day rainfall forecast for TN in the last two years.

This weather is almost perfect. A few rain showers every few days would be nice, but I've been getting a lot of outside work and hiking accomplished. It was 90 today, but maybe the most comfortable 90 I've ever felt with the low humidity and a constant breeze. I hardly even broke a sweat.

MRX's morning disco reads more like August than May with fronts dying a slow death north of the Ohio River.

Quote
The ridge flattens over the weekend as a frontal boundary moves down
into the Ohio River Valley and becomes east-to-west oriented. Though
the front remains well off to our north, the flattening of the ridge
may help to spark an isolated shower or storm across our high
terrain and up into SWVA. Sunday night/Monday morning another
impulse rolls through the west-to-northwest flow and into our area.
This will again allow for slight chance/chance POPs across the high
terrain, NETN, and SWVA. Models were previously showing this impulse
coming through on Monday which gave us our best shot of precip of
the extended. However, now it looks like it exits by Monday morning
so most areas stay dry now on Monday. The ridge re-strengthens Monday
afternoon through Tuesday.

Wednesday a shortwave trough and trailing front swing up into the
Great Lakes Region. This weak trailing front approaches our area
giving us another shot of slight chance POPs, though this time
areawide.

Liquid sunshine will be in short supply for most of us through next Wednesday.  Could be worse though.  Check out my sister's location near Columbia, SC:

Quote
Saturday
Sunny and hot, with a high near 97. Calm wind.
Saturday Night
Partly cloudy, with a low around 73.
Sunday
Sunny and hot, with a high near 100.
Sunday Night
Mostly clear, with a low around 74.
Memorial Day
Sunny and hot, with a high near 101.
Monday Night
Partly cloudy, with a low around 74.
Tuesday
Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 100.
Tuesday Night
Partly cloudy, with a low around 75.

No thanks; I'll be content with 93 this weekend.

I just ran the numbers and was surprised to see that, as of today, 2019 is still the wettest YTD on record here (our records only go back to about 1950 so it's an abbreviated record...but, still, the wettest YTD in the last 70 years, which is impressive in itself). We'll finally succumb to 1975 by the end of next week when the month ends, barring a rogue thunderstorm between now and then. We received 33.44" of rain through May 1975. We're sitting on 33.12" of rain this year.

Still, it's hard to believe that after all that rain we had from September-April, I'm actually breaking out the sprinklers for the lawn this week.

It's obvious the precipitation pendulum has swung solidly in the other direction from wet to dry over the TN valley.  TYS has just recorded their longest stretch of precipitation-free days since November 2017 (10).  Looking at the extended, it's quite possible they could go another 10 days with only scattered storms being forecast with a weakening front around Thursday.

It once looked like appreciable rain for most this weekend with widely scattered storms as the ridge breaks down. Now it looks like it's going to be hit-or-miss for all of us for at least the next 7 days and maybe until around June 5-7. Unbelievable about-face by Ma Nature. I broke down and put the sprinklers on my lawn this evening. It's completely parched. My new grass that was so lush a couple of weeks ago is toast, and even my established lawn is turning brown in places that usually only turn brown once every few summers during mild droughts (shallow areas over septic tank, etc.). I can't say I saw this coming a few weeks ago.

My lawn is also looking less happy.  10 rainless days has seriously drained the top soil of moisture.  A May heat wave isn't helping.

I knew mother nature had a tendency to balance the books, and she's doing so with a vengeance in Tennessee right now.   She's so moody these days.

That NW Flow pattern is good news for us but very bad news for areas like Missouri, Arkansas, and Illinois who absolutely don't need the rain.  The flooding would be more isolated to scattered in nature but still not needed for those areas.

It's been hot, but not the typical late summer heat we see later.  The difference is a stiff wind has been blowing with this heat wave, unlike the stagnant, breeze-less airmass we see in July. However, at the same time, the wind has really dried out the soil.  A good soaking is needed for new gardens trying to get established.

The fine folks of OK and KS have to love the latest GFS runs that show 9-11 inches of additional rainfall during the first half of June.   

Edit:  Tennessee is shown to receive some decent rainfall (widespread 2-4 inches on model output) as well during this tiemframe.  Remember since it is summer time you will have areas that get locally much less and areas that get locally much more.

CFS V2 supports a Weak El-Nino decaying to a Neutral by winter.  An Neutral ENSO essentially means that ENSO will not play a role in the winter and that it will be about the MJO, PNA, NAO, AO, QBO, etc..

The AMO has been solidly negative now for almost 18 months. We might finally be seeing the flip from positive since 1996. Itís a big driver especially for winter. The last negative AMO was the period from about 1960 to the mid 90ís.

QBO is about as positive as can be as of the last reading in April. Iím guessing itís a slow drop from there although can it go negative before winter is anyoneís guess.

After a dry start, it looks like some wet times are ahead later this week for TN.  No complaints here.  I've only seen .35" of rain over the last two weeks, so a good soaking would be welcome.

With Precipitable Water values of 2 inches and the fact that it is a cut-off low (aka a low that will form storms that are in no hurry) it is hard for me not to think that someone is probably going to see significant flash flooding out of this thing during sometime in the Friday-Sunday timeframe. 

Post Merge: June 05, 2019, 08:46:45 AM
One thing that could ease any flooding concerns is the excess moisture along the Gulf Coast.  This could limit our heavy rain threat here back home.  We will still have a soggy weekend but the flooding rains may be restricted to within 50-100 miles from the Gulf Coast.

The question is- will it be a rain-chasing snow scenario or suppression city? I think our best chance is when the pattern relaxes, and we get a disturbance from the Southwest that phases with energy in the northern stream with cold air in place, or an overrunning event, perhaps a southern slider

Oh wait- never mind.

Current MRX radar shows why flash flooding is a possibility this weekend.  Pockets of heavy rain have just developed, and are moving very slowly and/or moving over the same area.   And it's just Thursday, and we have 4-5 more days of this.

I think WNC will be the target area for flooding over the weekend. We may see spots of flash flooding on this side of the mountains, but we will also be getting downsloped all weekend. I'm thinking that gulf coast convection is going to further limit the rain amounts here. I'm guessing 2-3" average with isolated 5-6" for those stuck under heavier cells.

Moderate rain falling this morning under a dark sky.  Rain doesn't look to last long here, as most of it is retreating northward, currently.

Surrounding radars aren't impressive this morning, with most of the steady, heavier rain falling to our north in KY.  The exception is parts of middle TN and northern Plateau, where there's some decent returns and pockets of heavy rain.

I need it out of Nashville before Vandyís Super Regional game at 5 pm. My hope in that occurring isnít high though.

Was just about to post about that area. Looks like 6-8Ē has fallen. Similar situation to Germantown last night but in very mountainous terrain. Overall the coverage has been very spotty though. Iím only just now crossing 1Ē for the whole event.

Yes, we're just across the mountain and while it's rained off and on all day, heavy at times, we've probably had only 1-1.5" today.

Well,  we got to the top of the 7th at the Smokes game before the rain got us and cancelled the game.   They were losing badly anyway,  but it was a shame to miss the after game fireworks and concert.   

From the local news it looks like Campbell County has been hit pretty hard tonight. I hope everybody comes through this system IK.

We've had about a half inch total with this system so far.  Thanks to a downsloping flow, we might be lucky to get 1-1.5" before it's done.

But wow--summer is taking a vacation day of it's own late week.

As this second system closes off across the Great Lakes, our winds
aloft will become westerly and drying will resume, except for light
precip mainly along and north of I-40 Thursday. This Great Lakes
system, however, will usher in some unseasonably cool temperatures
for mid June, with min temps Friday morning in the low to mid 50s
across the Valley, and sunny highs in the 70s to near 80 on Friday
afternoon with lower humidity
! Warmer temperatures and muggy air
will return for the weekend.

Itís reported now that Germantown received 10 inches of rain in 3 hours night before last. Nearly 200 homes if not more flooded during that time. Despite insurance coverage and also keep in mind Germantown probably has one if the highest per capita incomes in the state- lots of this damage wont be covered due to lack of flood insurance. There are lots of complaints from residents about the drainage system. Iím not sure any municipality maybe outside New Orleans can handle that amount so quick.

I know we're only 8/9 days into the month, but I find it fascinating BNA is +3.9 on the month so far. Gun to head, I would have assumed near +0-0.5 the way highs have been lately. My initial thought is we're not reaching average lows with the capped radiation/muggy air mass keeping temp differentials at a minimum. Plus, I have recently wondered how much a booming Nashville metro is contributing to the overall UHI effect...but that's another convo for another day.

At any rate, while I know CPC has its issues on their temp probability seasonal forecasts, taken face value, I'm diggin' the 1.5 month outlook...

I totally do not understand why they do not close Cummings Falls State park when there is rain in their area.  Two people died there last year with multiple people rescued. And same yesterday. And a two year old lost his life and they had to save 64 people.  They know that gorge floods when there is rain.  Just very sad! 😖😢

FV3 was abysmal last winter.  Let's hope this upgrade works.

In the meantime, it will feel more like a mid-October day today.  Temperatures will struggle to get to 70 with gusty winds to 30 mph.  That will almost put a chill in the air for cold-natured people, but I'm lovin' it.   ::guitar::

How did you all fare?  I know there was a petty nasty line of storms moving through.

Typically skyscrapers and big business buildings/big hotels  can withstand any widespread damaging wind and even most tornadoes.  Not sure about EF3+ (there have been hotel collapses in those). 

As far as skyscrapers the biggest threat is debris from the windows breaking.  That is what happened during the Atlanta Tornado of 2008 which was an EF-2.

We are good. Local meteorologists were on top of it. Saw some very impressive lightning and 50-60 mph winds. Things escalated throughout the day going from slight to moderate risk and when I checked the radar that line looked nasty.

Woke up in the middle of the night to lightning and thunder. I looked on radar and saw an isolated popup cell just to my west (it wasn't something existing that moved into the area... it fired up from nothing).

When convection pops up in the middle of the night, you know there's some decent instability in place. Looks like a stormy week ahead.

WKRN's 10:00 PM  "Future-Tracker" run did a surprisingly good job modeling last night's convection, at least in my neighborhood.  It showed storms popping around 3:00 AM along I-65.  Davis wasn't buying it, but at 2:45 AM --- boom, I got 0.63 inches of verification.

Even blind squirrels find sometimes find a nut.

Yes this thing popped up out of nowhere directly over my neighborhood (Crieve Hall in South Nashville). It was an angry little cell with some noisy thunder, heavy rain and gusty winds - Iíd guess 45mph which knocked power out for several minutes.

We're getting a little bit of thunder and some brief downpours with pop-up storms this afternoon.  Somebody posted earlier about things being pretty unstable and that seems to be the case right now.  It actually feels like a more traditional summer with some heat and afternoon storms.  It's been a few years since we got to enjoy one like this.

The homeplace was on the southeast edge of some intense convection this afternoon.  I received a half inch, while just to my northwest, well over an inch fell.  Conversely, just to my southeast it was mostly dry.  Typical summertime storms, and they had plenty of lightning to go with the heavy rain.

In the meantime, Cocke and Jefferson Counties reported wind damage and power outages caused by wind gusts approaching 60 mph.

My business is right there on Trousdale. Got there this morning and the proof of rain was clear. I live in Bellevue, we canít buy rain over here. The number of times that Iíve opened the doors in the morning to see that itís rained there and not here is comical. Thereís a voodoo doll, or scooter, buried under I-65.

To be fair, we are at .05Ē for the day. So, maybe my property taxes are getting me something.

Wednesday could be very interesting in the Mid South. Models have converged on an unseasonably strong shortwave with a 500 mb max in excess of 55 kts moving across the area with seasonably high instability and good low level lapse rates. Would not be shocked to see a regional severe weather event across the area with that. Not your typical late June pattern, that's for certain.

MCS formation, it is what makes summer time tracking kinda fun but also very tricky for forecasters.

Anything from a nothingburger to a decent severe weather threat with potentially widespread damaging winds and even a few tornadoes is on the table tomorrow.   

It all depends on how the expected MCS that forms tonight in KS/OK/SW MO/W ARK behaves as it moves eastward tomorrow morning.  It also will depend on where outflow boundaries set up as well.

One thing about storms rolling through in the afternoons is that you sometimes get really beautiful sunsets like this one last night.  While I couldn't capture the added magic of very active fireflies the picture says a lot about the beautiful moments we're catching in between storms.

I'll second your motion. This weather pattern is ridiculous! Only the misguided ones who like to spend their summer sitting by the window and watching it rain are fond of  this pattern.  >:D

It's not just that though.  Frequent rain in the summer keeps it cooler, even on days it doesn't rain due to ground moisture.  Once you lose the ground moisture the death ridge starts setting up and before you know it its 3 weeks in of no rain and 100+ degree temps.   This is why I never complain when it storms in the summer.

Even in a wet pattern, there are still some areas that get much less in the summer season.  I've only had about 2.3" here IMBY.  That's certainly not excessive for June.

It's summer! It's supposed to be hot! Y'all gripe too much.  ;D

I'll gladly take a little excessive heat if it means plenty of dry weather for outdoors activities that can't be enjoyed during the cooler months. So far, we haven't had many rain-free days in June. That doesn't mean it's rained all day every day by any means...but the threat of rain has been there on an almost daily basis.

Just periods of rain overnight here, but with little fanfare.  Little wind or lightning, or at least not enough to wake me up.

Now, Friday and Saturday night might be a different story.

Quote
For Friday night into Saturday, models agree with a vigorous MCS
developing over the mid-west late Friday and Friday night, then
moving southeast toward the southern Appalachians/east Tennessee
valley. This MCS and associated MCV will be feed by southwesterly
boundary layer jet enhancing isentropic lift. Timing of this MCS
into the region is different between models, however, they agree
with a moderately unstable airmass as mid-level lapse rates steepen.
Strong gusty winds, potentially damaging, hail up to quarter size
and torrential rainfall are possible.

A break in the convection is likely in the wake of the storms
Saturday.

For Saturday night and Sunday, the GFS and ECMWF suggest another MCS
will develop over the Ohio valley and ridge southeast into the
region. Models do not show as steep mid-level lapse rates reducing
the CAPES some, but still heavy rainfall and strong/gusty winds are
anticipated.

At least it's the weekend, so loss of sleep isn't a big deal.  ::sleeping::

Looks like that line may hold together long enough to give Knoxville and surrounding areas some rough weather this morning, although the last few frames of the MRX radar loop shows a definite weakening trend.

Sunny and windy in West Knoxville but some loud thunder surprised me.   Then the TOR came out. We seem to be seeing some of the same discrete severe cell formation that happened with this front over the past couple of days. We're definitely getting enough interesting things to watch with,  thankfully,  very little damage in Tennessee so far.   Let's hope it stays that way.

Lost power earlier this evening thanks to that TOR warned storm that was in Knox moving southeast over my area.  Rain and wind was intense, along with some very vivid lightning, but thankfully no tornado.  But taking a close look at the radar, it was obvious the storm had the signature of rotation. It was quite the exciting evening after work.  I didn't get to eat supper until 8:00.  That's very late for me.

A true super cell in east TN.  Doesn't happen too often, but this was one of them.

I'm amazed at the amount/intensity of lightning in these types of storm.  Long before the sky even grew dark at my house, and while the storm was in northwest Knox County, I was hearing loud growls of thunder with the Sun still out.  It was almost a continuous rumbling.  I knew it was going to pack a punch from that alone.

HRRR says from Nashville eastward to the mountains could be under the gun late tonight into tomorrow morning.  Looks like a very active time through the weekend into next week.

Quote
For Tonight, a warm frontal boundary over the mid-Mississippi
valley into the northern Gulf Coast states will begin to lift
northeast as low-level southwesterly jet increases. Another MCS
will likely develop over the mid-west and slide southeast toward
Tennessee/southwest Virginia early Saturday morning.

For Saturday, model soundings are in fairly good agreement in
showing increased mid-level lapse rates and boundary layer
moisture. This will increase the CAPEs over the area. NAM shows
CAPEs increasing to 2500-3000 J/Kg with DCAPEs of 1300-1500 J/Kg
which will be favorable for damaging winds. The Wind Damage Index
is well over 1. Also the steep mid-level lapse rates will produce
high Hail CAPEs so large hail will be a concern with the stronger
storms.

The main questions for late Friday night and Saturday is timing of
the convection. If the storms move through in the morning, then
the atmosphere will not be able to recover. Will include the
potential of strong to severe storms in the HWO for late tonight
and Saturday.

It has to last at least 6 hours, have 60+ MPH across the span of the MCS, and travel at least 250 miles.  I also believe there has to be at least a few 75MPH+ winds or EF-1 or greater tornadoes to be classified as a derecho. 

The last one I know for sure that was a derecho was one that occurred in Late June 2018.  Actually there were two that day one that started on the KY/TN border and went through AL and another one that tracked from SE Iowa down to West TN.  Hurricane Elvis "2003" and the extensive squall line on 3/1/2017 were also derechoes.

Watch that leading bow as it approaches St. Louis it may take a southward/southeastwardly turn.  If it does and maintains its strength then Western KY/TN could be impacted.

well the trajectory is more east south east, looks to me more of a north of 40 east of 65 threat...UNLESS that other complex behind the main one dives a little more south....but who knows , sometimes they take an even harder right turn southeast so...it just bears close monitoring....I am glad for once my prediction came true :) lol

It may take a harder southeastwardly turn as it impacts St. Louis as there is a weak frontal boundary that goes approximately from St. Louis down towards the I-24 corridor of S IL/W KY.

Given storm intensity, some areal expansion along the
   southern edge of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 414 may be needed across
   northeast KS. Current storm motion is southeastward at 40-45 kt,
   which is faster than the leading MCS
. As result, these two systems
   may eventually interact, although when this occurs and the resulting
   effects are uncertain.

This is interesting  ::pondering::

The initial MCS is restrengthening and looks to have completed a right turn.  It is looking like it may be the initial (St. Louis area) MCS that impacts us and not the one behind it.  The one behind it may die out gradually because it is moving into an increasingly capped environment.

Funny you mention that.  That derecho hit Atlantic City and surrounding areas just a couple weeks before I moved up there.  My house was in Galloway which is an inland suburb of Atlantic city and the neighborhood I was in lost power for over a week due to the storm damage.  They were just getting power back on when I was moving in.  Apparently there were 100+mph gusts in this area and it took down lots of power poles.

That sequence of events ended up being beneficial for me and my neighbors there as we never lost power later in the year when Hurricane Sandy hit.  While we had hours and hours of 75-110mph winds, we never lost power since most of the poles and infrastructure was just installed and was in tip top shape from the derecho earlier in the year.

The line headed into Memphis screams wind storm between the broken up precip presentation, its odd forward propagation, and just the screaming forward speed.  Looks like one of those situations where the wind is going to come up hot and heavy before the rain.  Everyone in Memphis metro needs to batten down the hatches.

We got nailed with the radar indicated 80+mph winds. Neighbor's trampoline is in the tree on the fence. We lost a couple of branches off the tulip poplar that just peeled off the tree. One neighbor lost his plastic mailbox, another had his basketball goal thrown across/into the road. I took a walk around our cul-de-sac looking for damage. Luckily we all kept our shingles and siding. Daylight will reveal more, though.

Pretty amazing light show has been going on here since 9:30.  Started out as a dim flickering in the air, and it has steadily increased in brightness and intensity.  Now, as the storms approach Knoxville, the western sky is lighting up with intense flashes.  Living in an area with little artificial lightning makes for awesome nighttime storm viewing.

One fatality confirmed up in Allen County, KY this evening.

Man was killed when a tree fell onto his truck. Horrible.

Looking at the reports the ground-zero of the worst of the winds and even potenitally a few embedded tornadoes appears to have occurred from about Trigg and Christian County Kentucky and then ESE around the KY/TN border across Robertson County TN, Simpson and Allen County KY, and over into Sumner and Macon Counties in TN.  That is also closer to where you had the two MCS's merge.   I think when that first MCS merged with the main one coming from the west it caused the whole thing to ramp up.     

Post Merge: June 22, 2019, 11:16:32 AM
It does look like every county in Middle TN and maybe even East TN had a damaging wind report. 

For Middle TN that is probably the first time that has occurred since maybe 7/13/2004.

Looks like another robust MSC is shaping up for today and will likely have more effects on western TN than the last round.  There is already a big deep cold pool, ample cape that will only get higher as the sun warms the boundary layer, and slightly increased shear ahead of the line.  Would be worth paying attention to the weather today, especially if you are outdoors.  I can see another solid derecho developing from this with wide spread severe winds.

When it comes to summer, if there is decent humidity I do not model watch/pay much attention to forecast....it's just radar watching/cloud watching because I have seen so many "mostly sunny" forecast turn into gully washers and "mosty cloudy with storms" turn into a sunny day. Anything in the summer forecast more than three days out will most likely change by the time you actually get there lol

Unless there is a front or something really tangible in the area , summer is too hard to predict precip-wise in my opinion

  We have had at least double average (sometimes triple) each month since October, with the exception of May, which was about half of average.

We missed the flood that came to Murfreesboro tonight, however.  Impressive sight just off to our west for a while.

Interesting evening yesterday.  A very tiny, isolated storm developed as I drove home from work.  Apparently, it was strong enough to produce something akin to a microburst, as the rain shaft and the associated updraft collapsed.  The road on the way home was covered with small twigs and leaves when I drove through where the storm moved through.  There was also running water on the sides of the road, so it really dropped a deluge over a small area. 

MRX says more could come over the following days:

Locally heavy rain and lightning strikes will be the main impacts,
but DCAPE increasing to near 1000 J/kg and steep low-level lapse
rates could allow for isolated wet microbursts.

40 mph wind and reports of hail have bumped this up to a SWA for Knox and Anderson counties, pretty good little storm for us.

And the SWA got bumped to a Severe Thunderstorm Warning. This on got bad enough I squeezed the truck into the garage in case of hail but we got lucky and didn't see any.

The trend this summer, in general, is probably to ride the edge of the stronger ridges similar to how we did in 2016 and even last year.   That means that we will still be prone to summertime popups and maybe even another MCS event here or there to go with our hot, hazy, and humid.

As Dyer mentioned, LR globals picking up on a cool air mass in about 10 days infiltrating the central US. I can handle this kind of summer if we get occasional breaks.

I am in Tunica today for work and i noticed something I have never seen in my 20 years of coming down here. It seems the MS river has been so high for so long the water table has seemed to come up and all the low places on the dry side of the levees have become ponds.  This has resulted in crystal clear ponds to spot the landscape within about a mile or so of the levee.  Its pretty cool.

The warmth in Alaska is pretty amazing.  It's coming on the heels of an all-time record warm June.  Fairbanks has been pushing into the middle and upper 80's for multiple days.  It's crazy that they are as warm right now as we are.

While a warm "spell" isn't unusual for them (especially in modern times), to have a record warm month followed up by Anchorage shattering their all-time record high is a bit unnerving.  This isn't normal by any means.

Finally got some decent rain yesterday. 1.3Ē in about 30 minutes. Iíve noticed that the GFS has been extremely accurate with our high temperatures over the last week. It consistently predicted high 90ís each day. MRX went with low to mid 90ís and wound up busting. If it continues to be accurate this coming week, triple digits are possible Wednesday. Convection is also forecast for the same time frame though, and that could hold down temps a bit.

Not sure why the GFS exists, since even the NWS seems to throw it out most of the time--winter or summer.


Quote
and its exact track, we could have more widespread
convection. The GFS is currently one of the most bullish on QPF for
Saturday,
and unsurprisingly, is one of the eastern and generally
weaker track solutions which brings a broad 850mb jet and strong low-
level convergence into our area. Other guidance continues to place
the strongest 850mb flow to our west
, and this would keep our area
drier. At this time, tend to lean more toward the ECMWF and Canadian
which keep the majority of convection to our south and west.

You know something is wrong with your computer guidance model when even the Canadian beats it.

Barry will bring some good practice to those looking to sharpen their radar reading skills for TVSes from KDGX to KNQA (and maybe some high res from TMEM).  I know many people user radar scope on mobile and it is indeed a fabulous app, but for learning I would still recommended GRLevel3.  It is still my go to for any major event here and the the quad panel I go with (Base Reflectivity, Base velocity, storm relative velocity, correlation coefficient) look awesome on a nice big 4k ultra HD monitor.  I have two Dell 28" UHD monitors so I often get two quad panel sessions of GRL3 up at two different sites (or at different tilts depending on the situation)

It's not even 7AM and, depending on which source you check, humidity in Knoxville is between 95-100%.  I'm a life-long Tennesseean and gladly accept that we get some heat and humidity in the summer but this stretch where it's this muggy 24/7 is starting to get tiresome.  I've been running a dehumidifier in my house in addition to the AC to keep things more comfortable and it doesn't look like I'll get to turn that unit off this week.

Relative humidity is typically around that range at this time of morning because weíre near the dew point. Thatís why condensation forms as dew, because the air is saturated. RH will drop as the temperature rises. Itís a ďrelativeĒ function of the current temperature because of the physical properties of air and the amount of moisture it can hold based on temperature. Really, dew point is the constant to look at instead. Dew point over 70 is humid.

Dew point over 80 like as was seen in the western part of the state is really stifling.

I checked your DP in Knoxville, and itís 75. Thatís humid alright.

I had a nice morning walk this morning in Fairview. I got up at 7:00 before the nasty heat set in. It actually felt pretty crisp outside. I was surprised it wasn't so muggy. The sun was out in full force, so not having that insulating layer of clouds definitely helped bring down the humidity a notch.

We don't have the clouds to help temper things today.  Which means we will feel the effects from the great blowtorch.   

Minnesota gets to experience a heat advisory/excessive heat warning and a Moderate Risk of severe weather that includes both tornadoes and widespread damaging winds so that is kinda interesting.

Here's something you don't see every day...A PDS Severe Thunderstorm Watch...

Quote
URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 525
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   550 PM CDT Fri Jul 19 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of
     Much of north central and northeastern Wisconsin
     Lake Michigan

   * Effective this Friday afternoon and Saturday morning from 550
     PM until 100 AM CDT.

   ...THIS IS A PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION...

   * Primary threats include...
     Widespread damaging winds and scattered significant gusts to 105
       mph expected
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
       inches in diameter possible
     A few tornadoes likely

   SUMMARY...An intense supercell cluster in northwestern Wisconsin is
   expected to evolve into a damaging bow echo that will accelerate
   east-southeastward across northern/northeastern Wisconsin this
   evening.  The storm environment will favor swaths of high-end,
   destructive outflow winds potentially exceeding 100 mph.  Tornadoes
   will also be possible with embedded circulations, as well as large
   hail in the next few hours with lingering supercell structures.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 55
   statute miles north and south of a line from 70 miles west northwest
   of Wausau WI to 30 miles northeast of Manitowoc WI. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

   REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
   favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
   Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
   weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
   warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
   tornadoes.

Here's something you don't see every day...A PDS Severe Thunderstorm Watch...

Really not surprising at all when you have chicken noodle soup dew points + heat advisories/excessive heat warnings in place just south of where the jet is right now.  Just a few sparks off a shortwave and you have a gasoline fire igniting like Die Hard 2 until the MCS hits the Appalachians or the Atlantic.  I remember in June 2009 we had a a similar situation down here in west TN/north MS.  When the storms came through most of the are was in 6k-7k J/kg CAPE.  In most cases in the summer there isn't nearly enough lift to pop this so its just cosmetic, but with a short wave upstream triggering an MCS and it getting a nice big cold pool there is no stopping it until it runs out of fuel and with that kind of fuel power lines and trees are coming down.  In the event I spoke of I lost power for 3 days and a mature tree in my backyard.  Picture of the radar from that day below:

PWS has the highest dewpoint I've ever recorded IMBY today at 79.1.  Heat index is 107.4.  I'd have to say, I'm feeling it outside.  Cutting this work day short at the cabin.  The weeds will be there tomorrow.

We just had over 1.6" of rain two days ago in a torrential downpour, so I'd say that moisture is helping elevate the dewpoint today.  Hopefully, the storms moving backwards from North Carolina will provide some relief later this afternoon.

We had  a brief  shower (less that 0.2 inches) out here in Lascassas, but it was fascinating to watch the storms coalesce just a few miles to our west.  We had amazing cloud structure directly overhead for hours  as east-moving outflow interacted with the west-moving disturbance.  As the complex evolved, you could see tiny, isolated rain shafts merge into a solid curtain of greenish gray just over the hills to our west.  You could even hear the rush of the rain.  It was a great evening of weather-watching.

All I can hear this morning is my grass growing.  :o

Fantastic evening last night. I was at a friend's house a few miles north of Talbot's Corner. We were literally right on the cusp of the storms last night, only managing to get a few sprinkles the entire evening. Impressive lightning display along with some very nice outflow that drove down the humidity and temp significantly. The sky had almost a green tint too it and the leaves were constantly turning inside out...perfect porch-sitting weather.

Maybe the models are still a bit all over the place but we do look to at least lose the El-Nino which may weaken the subtropical jet.   I don't really see ENSO making much of an impact at this time seeing as any ENSO event that is not neutral will be weak at best.  We are also not coming off of a big time ENSO event in the previous year as well that would factor into the following year.  Example: Typically ENSO events that follow a Strong or Super Nino or Nina can have some similar characteristics.   

ENSO wide you are looking at winters like 52-53, 90-91, 93-94, 95-96, and 05-06.  Those taken together really don't give a strong signal for the late fall, winter, or spring one way or another.   

Winter will be decided by MJO, Arctic Air Supply, NAO, PNA, QBO (I think is right), ocean temperatures nearby, and some other wrenches that will get thrown in our face that we don't know about.   

Anyway, I am just glad that we get some relief from the swamp-like conditions we have been plagued with the last several days.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Nashville TN
902 AM CDT Mon Jul 22 2019

.DISCUSSION...

Our FFA will be expanded to cover most of our area. Showers and
thunderstorms with locally heavy downpours should expand rapidly
across the area going into the afternoon. The approach of a trough
and embedded MCVs will help initiate the activity in a very moist
environment. The 12Z OHX upper air showed about 2 inches for
precipitable water, and models are focusing a northeast to
southwest band of moisture convergence across Mid Tn this
afternoon. Our previous FFA area did show the zone of most
persistent lift, but potential for localized flash flooding seems
just as high extending back across our southwest counties where
heavy rainfall has occurred during the past few days. 1 hour
flash flood guidance values are under 2 inches for much of the Mid
State, and we will likely have episodes of rainfall rates well in
excess of these amounts. We do not expect a widespread flood
situation, but locations where heavy convective bands set up could
be dealing with several inches of rain and significant local
impacts.

Thanks LMK for collaboration.

When I step outside, I don't really think "fall-like" per se, but it feels more like end of May/early June. All in perspective, I guess... it is a nice break from the extreme heat and humidity. Someone I heard noted that as of yesterday, the sun starts setting before 8:00 PM in Nashville. So, soon, the days getting shorter will become more noticeable. I think I've already noticed the sun rising later in the morning.

I look forward to fall, but I'm not in a super hurry for summer to end... it does have its perks.

I've always wondered why the time zones are structured the way they are in KY and TN.  I know they didn't want counties split in two, so they couldn't do straight lines, but Kentucky has the biggest "bend" or curve in the zone border other than Idaho.  Why didn't they just go straight south from southwest Indiana to Bowling Green or Hopkinsville?   ::scratch::

I remember last year staying in Leavenworth, Indiana and again in Louisville the following day and the sun wouldn't set till 8-8:30pm and that was in April.  You go just about 30-40 miles to the west of Leavenworth or essentially cross the Ohio River into Kentucky then sunset is like 7:15-7:30pm.   

I also hear that one reason for this is that in reality Louisville and the entire state of Indiana should actually be in Central time and not Eastern time.  Based on Sunrise/Sunset times the Central/Eastern line should run through Ohio, far Eastern KY/TN, and probably split Georgia.

On the weather side, the late July/early August pattern we are heading into is not that bad.  We will be in a weakness between two ridges so the Plains and the Northeast will heat up but for us that weakness will allow for MCS events and even outflow boundaries to keep things manageable.

I remember last year staying in Leavenworth, Indiana and again in Louisville the following day and the sun wouldn't set till 8-8:30pm and that was in April.  You go just about 30-40 miles to the west of Leavenworth or essentially cross the Ohio River into Kentucky then sunset is like 7:15-7:30pm.   

I also hear that one reason for this is that in reality Louisville and the entire state of Indiana should actually be in Central time and not Eastern time.  Based on Sunrise/Sunset times the Central/Eastern line should run through Ohio, far Eastern KY/TN, and probably split Georgia.

Most of Indiana didnít have DST until 2005. They basically were in the Central Time Zone in the summer.

8-8:30 sunsets are good.....its the 4:30 that kills us in the early winter time. It should never be earlier than 5:30 for a sunset in my opinion

Considering the extreme heat in Europe (111 in Paris!), we're in a sweet spot.  Yeah, it's been humid, but I don't even have a 90 degrees in my 10 day forecast. In late July. That's amazing considering the heat occurring elsewhere, and the extreme warmth seen in Alaska this summer.  All-time records are falling everywhere (especially in higher latitudes). 

Whether or not you agree with the cause of global warming, I'd say it's no longer debatable that it's happening.

I'm not debating GW, but talking about the extremes. Chances are greater you'll see a more active summer jet during low solar periods, which we are currently in as the next solar cycle should start up soon. You get a big ridge like that over parts of Europe pumping heat straight up from Africa and they will torch. Been an interesting summer.

For whatever reason, our weather during this solar minimum has been enjoyable.  For some, it may have been too wet, but we've had 3 consecutive summers with no drought and very tame summer heat, while other parts of the globe have sweltered in long heat waves.  Winters have been complete duds, but I guess we can't have everything.

We are in the peak climatologically as far as heat goes and especially your heat index over 100F type of heat.  Since we are spending on late July and it looks like at least Early August with very manageable temps/humidity then that means that the window for that Heat Advisory/Excessive Heat Warning type of heat will be closing at a pretty quick clip.  We will definitely have our occasional 90s from now into September, but 90F+ after say August 20th (2010 for some and 2018 were exceptions) is usually more manageable.

After last year's debacle, I'm severely skeptical (bordering on cynical) of any outlook called "long-range" or "winter."

I envy those born after 1995.  They can enjoy a winter with a few inches of snow without comparing it to the 70's and 80's.

Got quite a bit of hail from that storm in Louisville (just north of TYS). I'd say nickel size, by far the most hail I have seen since April 2011... slight dents in my brand new truck  ::bangingheadintowall::

Radar indicated as much as 1.5-2" fell in my area from that storm.. I'd believe it

Interesting thing is, those storms developed from an outflow boundary that came from intense storms in the mountains yesterday.  There was actually flooding and a rock/debris slide reported in Gatlinburg.  Unfortunately, a man was killed when a tree fell on his car.  https://www.wate.com/news/gsmnp-one-person-dead-after-accident-on-the-spur-multiple-incident-close-roadway/ (https://www.wate.com/news/gsmnp-one-person-dead-after-accident-on-the-spur-multiple-incident-close-roadway/)

Those storms sent out an outflow that moved northwestward toward Knoxville, initiating the storms that hit the west side of the county.

Local news reported that there were at least two water rescues in Knoxville yesterday where people got trapped in flooded roads in addition to the much worse damage on the spur near Gatlinburg.  To be relatively localized and unexpected that cell did a good bit of damage in a short time.

The problem with yesterday's storms (and looking at the radar, probably today's as well), is there was no movement.  Once the storm developed, it rained itself out over the same area. 

Looking at radar estimates over the last 24 hours shows just how little the storms moved, and how small the area was affected by the heavy rain.  I've attached it below.

Wednesday could be an interesting weather day for some:

Quote
For Wednesday, a short-wave will move across the Ohio valley into
the central/southern Appalachians. Models show a fairly strong 300mb
jet (70-80kts) moving toward the area. Strongest forcing with this
jet seems to be over southwest Virginia into northern/central
sections of the Tennessee valley. Decent MLCAPEs of 2000-2500 J/Kg
with increased 850mb jet to 25kts providing some weak shear
producing some organization to the storms. Biggest concern will be
the dry air aloft providing enough thermodynamics for wet microburst
potential. Also, fairly decent mid-level lapse rates of 6.5 degree C
enhancing Hail CAPES. Hail CAPES along with favorable WBZ heights
will allow for the stronger storms to produce marginal severe hail.

Will highlight this potential in the HWO. There is some question of
timing of the storms. NAM has more storms late Tuesday night/early
Wednesday, while the GFS and ECMWF are later.

Yeah, I don't like August either. To me, September is the nastiest month in Tennessee. Despite it being a harbinger of autumn, September is almost never that down at these latitudes. It's hot, dry, and dusty, and there are rarely any fall-like days in September.

Nowadays, fall is pretty much our winter.

This is actually the 4th longest stretch in Nashville, TN history without a 100F degree.  If that doesn't get achieved later this month or into early September than it will be 8 years since Nashville has last observed a 100F degree day.   

This is a product of how wet the summers have been since then.  It is harder to get to 100F because that extra heat is used for evaporation of all the moisture. 2010 and 2011 were exceptions to that rule.

I used to say you could count on the first good cool snap between Sept 15-20. Last year we had 90s into October.

Maybe we could get a cool snap preview of fall toward the end of August or near Labor Day, though I donít really expect it, to be honest.

I just got back from a trip to Alaska... warmest summer on record there. We got hot in the afternoon after dressing in jackets for cool weather.

Itís becoming planet tropical, it seems like. Letís see if this fall and winter are capable of reversing the trend.

Just my theory, something is causing the oceans to heat. 71% of the world is Ocean and every Nino sets a new global threshold. I don't know if it is magnetic, volcanic, a mechanism we haven't discovered yet, etc, but something is going on.

My research is on climate variability on sub-seasonal to seasonal time scales and I try my best not to comment on climate discussions and debates on longer timescales as this is beyond my core expertise.  However, I do want to express that I have been spooked by what I have seen this summer.  There is an article in todayís Washington Post on July's record heat.  There is one line that really resonates with me ďThis is not your grandfatherís summerĒ by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.  I was fortunate enough to visit Paris for a number of summers in the 1980ís and early 1990ís.  On none of those trips did I anticipate or pack for hot temperatures.  Over that decade the warmest weather that I encountered was in April during a fluke one off day with temperatures in the 90ís.  I am having a hard time juxtapositioning the summers in Paris from my memories of cool, cloudy and damp weather and the Paris of 2019 with a high temperature of 109įF; to me it is mind boggling.  I never would have guessed that in my lifetime Paris would fall short of 110įF by just one degree. And it is not just one or two hot days in Paris, as there are always flukes.  There have been many all-time records set this summer across Europe and in many cases by unusually wide margins.  Here in Boston we did not see any all-time record highs but we did just experience our warmest month ever.

And the heat is not simply confined to the mid-latitudes but includes the Arctic as well.  There have been many headlines about the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, and it is looking like 2019 will give 2012 a run for the lowest Arctic sea ice minimum in the satellite era. In August 2012 sea ice loss was unprecedented that may be hard to match in 2019, but 2019 at least second place looks like a lock.   I often look at satellite pictures of Siberia for snow cover, but it is odd to see satellite pictures of Siberia with the region not covered in snow but smoke.

With so many all-time record high temperatures from daily to monthly and from local to global scale, melting glacial and sea ice and widespread Arctic fires it does seem we have numerous highly anomalous weather and climate events all occurring simultaneously.  More than ever I feel that we have entered a ďnew normal.Ē  Attribution of an event, a series of events in space and time and collectively across the globe is difficult but the best explanation that I can come up with is increasing greenhouse gases.  And if the theory is correct, or maybe more likely without unforeseen negative feedbacks, the extreme weather of 2019 will only become exacerbated in the years to come.  For me this is very sobering.

One day of interesting weather tomorrow before we go back to status quo.

Because of this, expect a line of thunderstorms to develop
along the cold front or prefrontal trough in SE KY late Tuesday
afternoon and move southeastward into the forecast area between 6PM
and Midnight Tuesday night; however, still have low confidence on
exact timing 36-48 hours from the potential convective event. With
the thermodynamic and kinematic environment in place across the
forecast area, a multicell line of thunderstorms is most likely with
damaging winds the primary hazard. In addition, with PW values
increasing to between 2.0 and 2.2 inches ahead of the front, heavy
rain rates are likely with thunderstorms resulting in the potential
for isolated flash flooding. For any additional details, please see
the SPC Day 2 CWO and WPC Day 2 ERO.

My morning run was more of a swim today. 77 with 99% humidity. We've actually been pretty lucky with the morning temperatures up to this point. I've had way more mornings in the 60's than the 70's. This is the first morning in the upper 70's.

KCHA hit 100 today for the first time in several years. Heat index is 109 right now, but peaked at 111. That's the highest heat index I can ever remember seeing here. The 2011 heat wave saw air temps of 107, but a HI of only 104.

In need of rain in many eastern areas of the TN valley.  So far in August, I've only recorded .31" of rain--way below normal.  After the next 3 days of heat, we'll be parched.  A decent shot of moisture is possible by mid week, but the last front only "blessed" us with a quarter inch.

August is the most boring month.  Usually hot and dry.  I wish we could skip August.  Only reason I like it is football is close.  First half of September is also usually hot and dry.  Football saves it for me.

Kinda surprised that the bulk of the rain shield has stayed west of I-65 today. I was expecting a washout for most of the day here in Hermitage but we've only had a few light showers within the last couple of hours.

Muscle Shoals area has been hit hard today. 6-8 inches already and they're under a Flash Flood Emergency for another 3-4 hours.

Yep. It happened again here today. 2 days of triple digits this summer. There wasnít nearly as much humidity this time. However, half the city is currently without water due to a break in a 36Ē main. The entire system is on a boil advisory. Basically everything downtown and north of the river closed down today. Many of the larger buildings require water to operate the AC systems. Not to mention lack of drinking water on an insanely hot day. Iíve also heard that some animals have died at the aquarium due to lack of fresh water for the filtration systems.
