Well no sooner do I post that total and think that's it for June, a storm drops out of Kentucky and it's coming a downpour here.

  I’ve had some similar storms over the past week as well.  All from the north and out of no where!  Rain totals for the month are pretty astonishing for June.  We will have to wait on the verdict for July though. Humidity has been a bear this week on the west side of the state.

It's stormed 3 of the first 4 days of July so far, so the wet pattern seems to be holding tight. The cloud to ground lighting has been intense the last few days, started multiple fires.

Stuck in the haze of summer I have fell silent on the forum. Just checking in to say "Hi I'm still here and lurking" haha. While for the most part it's been pretty dull weather wise up this way I've observed a handful of borderline severe storms. I may at some point later today send a couple of pictures I took of wall clouds.

My location has been unlucky with the afternoon rains for the past 9 days, until today.  Finally got a nice long frog strangler.  :guitar:

It has rained here at least some every day in July except one, including 2.4 inches today.  Already at 4.56 inches for the month. It's like living in Central Florida.

So John, I know you are big about keeping notes and records of the weather in your area.  I was just curious about what type of winters you’ve had after summers with unusually high rainfall totals.  There may not be any correlation, but I thought if there was any you would know.  Let me know what you find out please.

I don't know if there's any correlation but off the top of my head, winters are not all that memorable for snow lovers after very wet summers. 89 was a wet summer and we had the frigid December but the rest of winter was blah. Last year was exceptionally wet, also blah winter if you weren't close to the NC border and it wasn't great for people there, just better than for the rest of us. These days it seems like adjusting expectations downward regarding snow/ice/cold works much better than looking at anything in the past. Past analogs for last year were pretty bullish, but we fell in the 25 percent of the analogs where winter wasn't memorable, rather than the 75 percent that it was.  My particular area used to be pretty steady in that we'd get 10+ inches every year, always at least one solid 4-6 inch snowfall. Now we are in boom/bust for the last 15 years or so. We either get 25+ inches or less than 10 without a lot of middle ground. I just have to go with that we are in a new climate reality and that the past doesn't reflect the future as much as it once might've.

2.88 inches of rain so far today with more coming. Flooding is widespread, had a rock slide on the interstate at mm 142. Tons of street and creek flooding in the area as well. Several roads are impassible. Some 5+ inch 24 hour rains showing up over Campbell and Claiborne.

Wow John, your area has really been hit hard with rain over the past couple months. It had been pretty wet here too, until recently. Until today, I had only had 0.01in since June 25! Everywhere around me had been getting rain, but in this one little area where I live, we had not. I picked up 0.60in today. Since it had been 16 days since I had significant rain, I’ll gladly take it!

Had around another inch today in N Knox Co. My fescue lawn looks really good for this time off year. I’ve even had some fungus issues with a few shrubs. I know hot and humid stinks but for lawn guys like myself, hot and dry is worse.

I believe we've only had 2 or maybe 3 days without rain since June 25th here.

It's downright comical how unlucky my location in west Knox has been with the rains this summer.  I had a good downpour last Sunday but nothing since and was dry for 9 days before that.  Storms fire on the plateau and steer either north or south of me, or fall apart around Farragut.  At least I get to watch the lightning as Maryville gets nailed.

This is just from yesterday, it rained 1.5 inches on Wednesday. I'm at 9.14 inches for July already.

I ended up with around 2.15”. Got lucky with a cell that stalled when it interacted with a outflow boundary and sorta pulsed backwards before moving SE.

Good stuff, thanks for that!  I think adjusting expectations downward is a good idea as well.  As hard as that may be to come to terms with, (haha).  Good info to know though going forward, everyone will have to me more reserved when using past analogs to interpret future seasons/climate.  On a side note-  the rain has started rolling into west Tn from tropical storm Barry.  Some areas could see significant flash flooding so it could get dangerous for some of our neighbors in Mississippi, as well as parts of Tennessee and Alabama.  The temps have dropped off significantly ahead of the storm as well.
