We've had some rather anomalously quiet spring seasons the last couple of years. Like last year when it practically shut down after April.

It's been a few years since the last really widespread outbreaks affected the south & southern Plains, and if things hold serve, that could likely break next year.

We experienced vibrant colors in Knox County in 2017, thanks to a wet September and moderate temperatures. Other than that, we've struck out most years.

I think this year could be great had good rains and decently normal temps....I think the natchez trace could be beautiful this year

My new weather station registered 45 this morning.  Seems a little low to me. It was definitely chilly. I left all the windows open and it was 56 in the bedroom.

2017 was pretty decent.  2018 would have been good if we didn't go straight to winter.  Fall droughts hurt 2016 and 2019, but I think we should have a 2017 like performance with fall colors as long as we don't get too cold too quick.

Thankfully I think this year is more of a step down to cooler weather instead of just going from 98F to the 40s and 50s just because.

Iím headed to Maine next week. They have colors we donít have in Tennessee. Itís almost hard to describe. Itís been a couple years since we have had decent colors. With no prolonged heat and adequate rain we should fair nicely.

Here in the basin, it was so warm and dry last year during early fall that color was delayed until the drought stressed a lot of trees to simply shrivel and drop their leaves without much of any color. For everything else that still had leaves, a drastic change and hard freeze in early November zapped the remaining foliage since it didn't have a chance to harden off and transition into winter dormancy at a healthier pace. Short- it was one of the lousiest fall foliage seasons I could remember around Nashville. I had to let our crape myrtle regrow stems/new trunks from the roots this year since that 1-2 punch last fall killed the existing trunks.

this la nina appears to be a weak to moderate this up coming winter... a nice big kelvin wave developing now in the pacific should boost the nina some. Also appears to me be central based... with the pdo heading negative think winter will come early but will leave early. also as we head to later winter the nina should start to decay fairly rapidly if that happens look for a active severe wx season late winter into spring 2021 for the midsouth
After the tornadoes this past spring and my brother house finally rebuilt and lots of friends and people who are still trying to recover.  I hope itís a big ole bust.  Sorry Bruce but this area and actually America has seen enough destruction in 2020 that hopefully 2021 is a plain vanilla perfect wx year.

The weather pattern forecast through early October (ensembles and weeklies) is friendly to BN temps esp Mid South. East Tennessee is not so locked in.

La Nina with warm SSTs off the West Coast combo supports the dynamic modeling. However the PDO is not quite there. Central Pac is still warm too. Winter is still TBD.

I keep remembering how great November 2019 was going for those of us who like winter wx. Then it fell apart. Still only takes one day. KCHA Sat. Feb 8!
