    Spring-Summer Observations 2019

    I'm sure some of you have heard about the recycling center fire in Knoxville. It's about 2.5 miles from my house and was watching it on radar yesterday. As I was watching it though I noticed an outflow boundary from an old storm intersecting it and that seemed to fire up a storm. Not sure if that is exactly what happened, but thought I'd share to see what y'all think: The storm I'm looking for fires over the NE sections on Knoxville, just north of downtown, at 23:20 time stamp. Just prior to that you can still see the smoke plume from the fire.

    I'm going to be near and possibly on High Knob on Saturday, so hoping I can catch a few flakes. Although recent model runs seem to want the precip shield to be further west than VA. It's a cut off, so I guess we'll know when it develops, lol.

    After the front came through yesterday, it brought what I thought was one of the best airmasses in what seems like a year. Pollen down and crystal skies before the lower clouds rolled back in and a nice breeze. One pic is of the clear air afterwards and one of the storms as they were building over Knoxville.

    Is this what you were looking for Jeff, regarding the paper? https://t.co/keKEHDA2Gj

    Thought some might find this thread from one storm yesterday interesting:

    UKMET looks decent at 500 mb and EPS shows some cold.

    Ye olden Euro was interesting this PM. 5 days out. Isn't that the closest anything has come since December? (minus the miracle Sevier/ Blount county/ Dayton leeside micro low storm)

    Nice little T-Storm just rolled through Harriman. Kind of surprising given how overcast it has been today. Looks like they are popping on satellite though!

    Still just a model forecast, but interesting discussion of model skill, other SST questions in this thread. Thought there might be some interest here.

    3k NAM (only the best) rather excited about LeConte tonight. Tauntauns might be out, lol Some T-storms showing up on some models for this PM too. Wonder if we will see any thunder/ hail/ graupel. MRX: this afternoon...a short wave trough digs in and convective energy increases. Current forecast seems to have a decent handle on this, and still appears there could be some pea size hail/graupel with the heavier showers and possibly even a few rumbles of thunder.

    Controlled burn? Must have been some interesting mid/ upper winds for that smoke to take that weird split path. Definitely noticed it over Knox this PM. https://www.timesfreepress.com/news/breakingnews/story/2019/mar/18/fires-might-be-part-prescribed-burns/490784/ Not sure about the one near Cumberland County though:

    Please note this is in no way to prompt a climate change debate. Just thought it was interesting to see how geology can impact climate.
