This will be the one and only summer I will welcome hot and humid, and that's only because it supposedly helps curb the spread of Covid.

Yuck!! but there will be plenty of opportunities for that.

I will go ahead and say we will have the hottest summer statewide since 2012 and that if you didn't hit 100 last Fall then you will sometime especially between Mid-July and Early-October.   

- Gaining La-Nina
- Extremely Warm Gulf/Caribbean Sea
- Extremely strong SW/Sonora Ridge that will be coming our way once the Monsoon begins
- A Likely Tropical Storm/Hurricane track along the East Coast or just off the East Coast that will boost the ridging over the area

As much as I hate to say it because extreme heat is my least favorite weather but we are in for a very hot one.

Title: Re: June 2020
Post by: StormNine on May 29, 2020, 04:35:55 PM
With an expected active hurricane season where the main center of the ridge sets up is going to determine how many tropical threats the USA has.

In 2006 and 2007 the ridge was very expansive and often centered over us which kept the hurricane threats of those seasons down well into Mexico.  I don't think many of them ventured north of the Yucatan Peninsula those years.  That is a very possible scenario for this year.

If the center of the ridging is instead of saying the Great Lakes or even worse the Great Plains/Eastern Rockies then it allows for weaknesses to form along the Gulf of Mexico which is what occurred in 2005 and 2017.

Exact favored position of the ridge will be huge as we go further into hurricane season.

We were out to walk the dog early yesterday morning and then out on a friend's property with them yesterday evening and wished we could bottle how nice things were. I agree, we're likely several months away from such nice mornings and evenings once the heat cranks up this week. It has been good to have actual spring weather to enjoy again this year. Now if we can just figure out how to have fall again we'll be back to our full 4 seasons!

I'm located in a farming community called Primm Springs, on the fringe of Williamson County near the intersection of Hickman and Maury Counties.

I'm standing on the front porch now, facing south. The storm's actually moving pretty slowly. It's actually not gusty at all here, but the lightning at the point of the storm is quite intense. It's probably ten or fifteen miles southwest of my home.

I wonder if anyone is leaving WKRN, because it doesn't appear so.

I will say this, WKRN is becoming VERY aggressive in the market in terms of breaking news & weather, but also in their delivery of the news. WSMV shot themselves in the foot with the massive purge of talent and subsequent debacles the last few years and their rebranding is trying to get them back up in the rankings.

Weather coverage is one thing that can really set stations apart in a lot of markets and WKRN seems to recognize that very well.

Post by: byrdymush on June 05, 2020, 10:33:11 PM
Well, today was a first for me. Tornado sirens without an active warning.

(Warning - this gets long. Iím a story-teller. Haha!)

I live in Atoka, a small town in South Tipton County, just north of Shelby County (Memphis) and the KNQA radar located in Millington. Slight risk for this afternoon with minimal tornado risk. We were under a severe thunderstorm watch and I received an alert for a significant weather advisory. This was all just before 1pm central time, FYI. 12:50pm or so. I had a look at the radar and meh. But Iím a nerd who loves this stuff, so I went out back to look to the NW and heard tornado sirens in the distance. Munfordís probably.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200606/d5e042fb1dc19ed9ff06a02659ff6d9d.jpg)
(View from backyard. Oooo. Aaaah. Nothing we havenít seen before.)

Completely perplexed, I checked again and had no earthly idea, radar-wise, what could have been causing the sirens. There were no tornado warnings from NWS, the Tipton County emergency alerting system, or any of my weather-apps. And, based my limited understanding of the setup for today, minimal tornado risk. So...huh? I was very lost.

Went around to the front and yeah, it looked super spooky, like the clouds were upside-down boiling water. A phenomena Iíve seen before. And the wind, as the system came through, got gusty and immediately cooler...as customarily occurs.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200606/ed7cb81c303b7d8c03a57b72f8f0a493.jpg)
(...?)

But then our townís sirens started going off. Iím still on the front porch, still looking at radar, and still perplexed. Sirens went off and back on again. I began to doubt what I was/wasnít seeing, and based on all the recent tornadic surprises in the region, I went and prepped the storm shelter (in the floor of our garage).

Sidebar: If super bad weather is expected, I shop-vac the bugs out and have it ready. Today, I slid the door open, waved around a broom inside of it (take that, bugs!), and voila.

Went back out front, sirens still going, power goes out, clouds still look icky but still not tornadic to me. Sirens go off and back on again. Someone kept restarting them. But why?

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200606/a8f83fecfd2986462a7694218472ea32.jpg)

Our cell phones arenít loading anything, messages arenít sending...like the cell towers were overloaded or down. That sucked. I couldnít get anything to load to confirm my ďmeh...this ainít nothiní!Ē We hung out on the front porch as the system slowly made its way through with the rain (yay for wrap-around porches). Took a good 30-45 minutes for the Verizon data to work, and only about 3 hours without power.

All the while...not a peep from NWS, Memphis news channels arenít broadcasting, nobody in the weather community has any idea any of this is happening and Iím still very perplexed. Munford Fire Department posted to Facebook that a weather spotter reported a funnel cloud and they initiated the sirens based on that. Upon confirmation from NWS that nothing supported it, they were turned off. They ran for 15+ minutes though. Shouldnít NWS have been the FIRST call by the spotter? Shouldnít the FD have confirmed with NWS so communications, if truly necessary, could have been coordinated to the masses? I appreciate their proactiveness toward safety, but I fear the complacency that will be born from this event, and potential distrust in the weather community as a whole.

Anyhoo...if anyone is interested in having a look at the archival KNQA radar loops beginning around 12:40pm and my photos (I have video too), Iíd be curious to know what you all think about the situation.

Man, you just don't see Mod Risks for Michigan every day. It's a weird thing to see.

Michigan has quite a past in relation to tornado outbreaks or widespread severe outbreaks.  There have been quite a few nasty derecho events.  Flint, MI got hit by a really bad tornado in the 50s and the southern part of the state was rocked by the Palm Sunday 1965 outbreak. 10/18/2007 was a fairly significant tornado event in that area as well.

In a year when a deadly set of EF-3 and EF-4 tornadoes occur in a relatively marginal setup, Western KY experiences a record-setting 9 tornadoes in January, a virus pandemic occurs, we are already on the D name on tropical systems just 10 days in hurricane season, overall craziness happens, and a derecho actually runs through the crest of the Rocky Mountains anything can happen.

No measurable rain here for more than one week, going on two. Hoping for some next week. Our crops need it badly. Our water supply is getting strained. Can't take water for granted when you have a septic system.

One week of no rain has strained yíall water supply? After 2 years of above average rainfall? Where do you live?

With the ridging in Maine/SE Canada and the ridging in the Desert SW.  That will put us in a bit of a not-so-hot pattern as our area will be able to receive brief cold front passages and outflows from NW flow events.

Unfortunately once the SW Monsoon kicks off that ridge will get displaced to our region to merge with the SE Canada/Maine ridge by mid-July through at least the end of September. The hot summer of 2020 is probably delayed but not denied.

Ready for some mid 90s.  Been trying to get a run in every day itís been above 90.  Running when itís 70-80 just doesnít whoop a person the same as 90-95.  Nothing like it for me.

We've been in a not-so-hot pattern for a while now! Here on the northern plateau, we've hit 90 just once this month and haven't been out of the 70s since 6/14.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE  MEMPHIS TN
405PM CST THU JAN 3 1985

            MAJOR SNOWSTORM PUMMELLS WESTERN TENNESSEE

SNOW WHICH PLAQUED PARTS OF TEXAS AND ARKANSAS YESTERDAY MOVED INTO
THE WESTERN PART OF TENNESSEE WITH A VENGEANCE TODAY. AREAS MOST
AFFECTED WERE NORTHWESTERN MISSISSIPPI AND SOUTHWESTERN TENNESSEE.
MEMPHIS APPEARED TO BE HARDEST HIT WITH 6 INCHES OF SNOW BY 3 PM WITH
SOME PORTIONS OF THE CITY RECEIVING AS MUCH AS 8 TO 10 INCHES. BY LATE

EASTERN TENNESSEE RECEIVED LIGHT RAIN OR DRIZZLE.

AFTER OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE 20S AND 30S, AFTERNOON READINGS HELD IN THE
20S IN THE WEST, ROSE A LITTLE THROUGH THE 30S IN THE MIDDLE, AND
CLIMBED ALL THE WAY INTO THE LOWER 40S IN THE EAST. BRISTOL HAD THE

               ..BIG SNOW HITS WEST TENNESSEE...

A SNOWSTORM STRUCK WEST TENNESSEE TODAY AND IT WILL BE LONG REMEMBERED.
PATCHY SNOW DEVELOPED OVER EASTERN ARKANSAS AND NORTHERN MISSISSIPPI
THIS MORNING AND IT SPREAD INTO WEST TENNESSEE AND INTENSIFIED DURING
THE COURSE OF THE DAY. MILLINGTON RECEIVED 11 INCHES OF SNOW AND MEMPHIS
HAD 8 INCHES. 6 INCHES WAS REPORTED AT JACKSON AND AT LEAST 5 INCHES OF
SNOW FELL AT DYERSBURG. AT JACKSON THE PRECIPITATION STARTED AS FREEZING
RAIN AND SLEET AND THEN IT CHANGED TO SNOW IN THE AFTERNOON. ELSEWHERE
IN THE STATE IT WAS CLOUDY WITH PATCHY RAIN AND DRIZZLE. TEMPERATURES
RANGED FROM THE MID 20S IN THE WEST TO THE MID 40S IN THE EAST.

A WINTER STORM WARNING HAS BEEN POSTED FOR WEST AND MIDDLE TENNESSEE FOR
TONIGHT WITH UP TO 4 INCHES OF SNOW EXPECTED IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE FRIDAY
MORNING. IN THE EAST A WINTER STORM WATCH IS POSTED FOR TONIGHT AND
EARLY FRIDAY.

A LOW PRESSURE AREA CENTERED OVER THE NORTHEAST GULF OF MEXICO IS THE
REASON FOR THE WINTER STORM WEATHER. THIS STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE
NORTHWARD ACROSS GEORGIA TONIGHT AND CONTINUE UP THE APPALACHIANS
FRIDAY. AS A RESULT COLD AIR CIRCULATING AROUND THE LOW AS IT MOVES
NORTHWARD WILL CAUSE THE RAIN TO CHANGE TO SNOW IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE

TENNESSEE CAN EXPECT SNOW LATE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY.

THE SNOWSTORM IN MEMPHIS OFFICIALLY TOTALED 7.7 INCHES AT THE MEMPHIS

Very interesting- thanks for sharing.

Oh- the days of surprise snow storms.

Memphis and West TN got in on the January 1985 pattern from the start. I do notice the impacts were apparently far less for Middle and East in that early event. Granted I was only 9 at that time, but I didn't remember much in our area in Middle TN until later in the month. What sticks out to me is when the temperature went down to -17, which still stands as the all-time record low for Nashville. But, that was past mid-month, I believe. I remember a snow storm that brought "blizzard conditions" just before that record low. It was a very fine powder snow... a Colorado weather pattern for sure. I remember snow being on the ground for a while and multiple winter weather events into the first part of February.

This kind of weather doesn't even seem remotely possible in this area anymore...

PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MEMPHIS TN
230 PM CST FRI DEC 18 1987

                      PRESS RELEASE

MONDAY..DECEMBER 14 1987 WILL LONG BE REMEMBERED BY THE RESIDENTS OF
CRITTENDEN COUNTY ARKANSAS AND SHELBY COUNTY TENNESSEE.  THE KILLER
TORNADO THAT SMASHED INTO WEST MEMPHIS ARKANSAS AROUND 9:34 PM KILLING
SIX PERSONS AND INJURING OVER 100 MORE TRAVELED RAPIDLY NORTHEAST
ALONG A PATH THAT TOOK IT ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER INTO NORTH
SHELBY COUNTY WHERE IT DEALT ANOTHER DEVASTATING BLOW TO THE NORTHAVEN
AREA. FROM ON-SITE INSPECTION OF THE DAMAGED AREAS AND FROM THE AERIAL
SURVEY COMPLETED WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 16TH..NWS OFFICIALS FROM THE
MEMPHIS FORECAST OFFICE WERE ABLE TO DEFINE A CLEARLY MARKED PATH 25
MILES LONG AND ON THE AVERAGE ABOUT 200 YARDS WIDE.  IT EXTENDED FROM
ABOUT 4 MILES SOUTHWEST OF WEST MEMPHIS ARKANSAS TO MILLINGTON
TENNESSEE. WIND SPEEDS WERE ESTIMATED FROM THE LEVEL OF DESTRUCTION TO
BE IN THE RANGE OF 150 TO 200 MPH.  ON THE FUJITA TORNADO INTENSITY
SCALE OF ZERO TO FIVE WHERE FIVE IS THE MOST INTENSE..THIS STRONG
TORNADO WAS CLASSIFIED AS A LEVEL THREE.  OF THE APPROXIMATELY 800
TORNADOES THAT OCCUR ANNUALLY ACROSS THE NATION..ABOUT 35 PERCENT FALL
INTO THIS CATEGORY.  MANY TORNADOES OF THIS STRENGTH GO UNDETECTED BY
CONVENTIONAL RADAR AND CHANCES OF RECEIVING ADVANCE WARNING ARE NOT
VERY GOOD.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE..WITH THE COOPERATION AND ASSISTANCE OF
MANY GROUPS IN THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR..HAS DEVELOPED A WARNING
AND AWARENESS PROGRAM THAT INCREASES THE CHANCES OF DETECTING SEVERE
STORMS OFTEN MISSED BY CONVENTIONAL SENSING TECHNIQUES..BY TRAINING
AND ORGANIZING STORM SPOTTER GROUPS. MOST OFTEN THESE ARE LAW
ENFORCEMENT OR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL..COOPERATIVE WEATHER
OBSERVERS..OR HAM RADIO OPERATOR GROUPS.  THESE STORM SPOTTERS RELAY
CRITICAL REPORTS BACK TO THE NWS OFFICE WHERE THE DECISION IS MADE TO
ISSUE A WARNING.

ON THE EVENING OF DECEMBER 14TH..HAM RADIO WEATHER NETWORKS IN WEST
MEMPHIS AND MEMPHIS PROVIDED VALUABLE INFORMATION IN THE INITIAL
TOUCHDOWN OF THE TORNADO IN WEST MEMPHIS AND LATER AS THE STORM STRUCK
NORTHERN SHELBY COUNTY, TENNESSEE.  THESE REPORTS WERE MONITORED
DIRECTLY BY HAM RADIO OPERATORS LOCATED AT THE MEMPHIS FORECAST OFFICE
AND THEIR REPORTS WERE INSTRUMENTAL IN THE BROADCAST OF THE TORNADO
WARNING AROUND 945 PM OVER EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT RADIO AND NOAA WEATHER
RADIO.  THIS PROVIDED AROUND 10 TO 15 MINUTES OF WARNING LEAD TIME TO
PERSONS IN THE PATH OF THE STORM IN SHELBY COUNTY..PARTICULARLY IF
THEY OWNED A NOAA WEATHER RADIO RECEIVER.

UNFORTUNATELY..THERE WAS NO WARNING LEAD TIME FOR RESIDENTS OF WEST
MEMPHIS ARKANSAS BECAUSE THE INITIAL TOUCHDOWN POINT WAS ONLY 4 MILES
SOUTHWEST OF THE CITY.  THE STORM RACED TOWARD THE CITY WITH A FORWARD
SPEED OF 60 MPH AND REACHED THE CITY LIMITS AROUND 934 PM.

EVEN WITH SPOTTERS IT IS IMPORTANT TO REALIZE THAT VERY LITTLE IF
ANY ADVANCE WARNING IS POSSIBLE FOR TORNADOES THAT TOUCHDOWN
INITIALLY NEAR A POPULATED AREA.

THE AWARENESS PROGRAM EMPHASIZES APPROPRIATE LIFE SAVING ACTIONS THAT
CAN BE TAKEN WHETHER AN ADVANCE WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED OR NOT.  IT IS
CLEAR FROM OUR CONVERSATIONS WITH PERSONS IN WEST MEMPHIS AND
NORTHAVEN..THAT MANY OF THEM KNEW WHAT TO DO.  WE ARE CONVINCED THAT
MANY MORE LIVES WHOULD HAVE BEEN LOST HAD THIS NOT BEEN THE CASE.  WE
WISH TO COMMEND THOSE RESIDENTS IN THE PATH OF MONDAY'S TORNADO FOR
THEIR SPIRIT AND THEIR ABILITY TO TAKE QUICK AND PROPER ACTION IN THE
FACE OF EXTREME DANGER.

A NUMBER OF PERSONS INDICATED THEY HAD HEARD WEATHER REPORTS EARLIER
IN THE DAY ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND TORNADOES
DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.  THEIR LEVEL OF AWARENESS
WAS HEIGHTENED WHEN THE NWS ISSUED TORNADO WATCHES FOR THE MIDSOUTH
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HOURS AND PROBABLY CONTRIBUTED
TO THEIR QUICK LIFE SAVING ACTIONS ONCE THEY HEARD THE ROAR OF THE
APPROACHING TORNADO.

THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF NWS PRODUCTS ISSUED BY THE MEMPHIS FORECAST
OFFICE ON DECEMBER 14TH.  THESE WERE PRECEDED BY A PUBLIC SEVERE
WEATHER OUTLOOK ISSUED AT 5 AM CST BY THE NATIONAL SEVERE STORMS

I always thought that tornado and the Germantown tornado should have been EF4. Those wind speeds mentioned in this conclusion best that out. It only missed Southland Casino(then a dog track) by the same width of the tornado- 200 yards. It was filled when 7000 spectators- can you imagine?

And thereís the nice myth buster to ďit wonít cross the MS RiverĒ.  Hogwash.

And thereís the nice myth buster to ďit wonít cross the MS RiverĒ.  Hogwash.

Certainly one of the closest "what if" scares in modern tornado history. It would have been a disaster. As the PNS mentions...West Memphis had no lead time. The official warning was not issued until 15 minutes after touchdown (after West Memphis had been hit) and the storm was already crossing the MS River. One interesting tidbit you see here is apparently they went on weather radio and did a live warning several minutes before the actual warning was issued...so people who happened to have been listening there may have gotten a few extra minutes....though this was no help to West Memphis. In those days... typing...issuing and disseminating warnings over wire was a many-minute process. Today you could do the entire process in 60 seconds or less if you had to...

I would say that it looks like this month has been pretty manageable for a summer month as far as temperatures go.   

Unfortunately, I don't think this relative nicer summer weather will last especially once the Southwest Monsoon punts the SW Ridge our way and the growing La-Nina strengthens the SE ridge.

The way 2020 is going.  I would not count on anything going normal.  Including wx.  Expect the unexpected.

Since we are not doing normal weather
A cold and snowy December?

GFS is showing highs in the low 70's this weekend under cloud cover. Small chances of rain.

The Sahara dust still looks on track to move in this weekend.

Is that too much to ask?

I'd give a lot for another 2010.

you ALL know to well how much 2010 was my favorite winter 9.5 inches of snow along hwy 412 and I think I totaled about 14 inches that year after the second storm brought me around 4.5 :) PLEAAAASEEEE.

Doesnít look like any heat ridge patterns setting up as far as the eye can see at the moment. Highs in the upper 80ís or low 90ís and lows in the 60ís. Thatís a happy compromise to which Crockett and I can agree.

I canít imagine we donít have temps flirting with 100 at some point probably in climo dog days...until then Iím cool. This La NiŮa looks to be shaping up to be weak and perhaps decaying into fall and winter.

This volcano may flip the script next winter and have us repeating last winter with a strong polar-vortex and warmth from sea to shining sea.

I initially misread your post as, "I'm sure [the volcano] would take New York in a second."

I am driving to Charleston, SC, today and the dust has been dense the whole way. Tennessee, Georgia and SC.

Does anyone know when the dust is expceted to clear?

My guess would be pretty soon if it's already so low in the atmosphere.

Just guessing thereíll be a light layer of dust on everything outdoors.

We may be washing African mud off our cars (which is pretty cool to think about).

The entire state should be clear by Monday. Super thick here at the moment.

Wasn't expecting a slight risk today for the northern and eastern half of the state but I'll take it! With the exception of the dust it's been a little boring lately. Hopefully this will knock out what's left of it. We could see quite a few power outages if this turns into a derecho-like event.

It's still hazy here in Charleston, but it's beginning to clear out.

I had a thought.. (scary, I know)...

With all the dust/dirt particles in the air, I wonder if the storms this evening will be more electrical than normal. Seems to me like the dust would be a good conductor of electricity.



If I'm wrong, just remember, there is a reason I am not an electrician

That's a pretty sizeable gust front moving to the southwest toward Nashville Metro. I have a feeling that's going to get things going here soon.

Getting some heavy rumbles of thunder from the cell sliding southward towards Knoxville right now. Could be a lively afternoon.

Headed home from town a few minutes ago, ran into some ~40mph wind around the Murfreesboro VA coming from the WEST..

Get home, approximately 4mi as the crow flies, and I have sustained 25mph coming from the SOUTH.

Did I miss an outflow popping these storms along 840?

There was definitely a northward moving outflow that came through here in Nolensville less than an hour ago. It was windy for several minutes, and I could see the feature moving up on radar.

Getting hammered in Mt Juliet. This has to be just barely under warning criteria.

Only a trace of rainfall over here by BNA. Had to have poured rain in every direction

Not a lot of rain here in West Knoxville but plenty of big thunder. It seems like a long time since we had an afternoon like this one.

We somehow shot the gap on the storm today. North and south got hammered, but we were close enough to get some lightning reaching out from the edges.
