Spring/Summer 2018 Observations

Recommended Posts

Downsloping winds = dry but useless days.

Sunday night was absolutely wild. We were at a B&B in rural Sevier County and I awoke to the distinctive sound of our well-built structure being tested by extremely strong gusts. At breakfast the following morning, another guest claimed to have measured a gust of 71 mph with his handheld anemometer. Take that for what it's worth.

I don't know if the attached video will be viewable, but current radar is interesting to me- west to east motion on the plateau with south to north motion in the Apps.

Good catch, pivot relatively close to the valley... looks like some topographic effects causing the east to west movement to slow..??

Let me know if posting these GIFs are giving people issues loading the page

GIFs causing no problems here. 

On an observations note, apparently the rain is starting to take its toll. There was a small landslide on highway 68 between Spring City, TN and Grandview, TN (this is a state highway from the Valley to the Plateau). The road is now closed.  Image taken from 105.7 News facebook page.

Potholes are always a pain in the spring time.  Looks like they let that one go or too long.  :D
