Knoxville tied the all time record high in January of 77 today. The only other time it was 77 in January was 1/25/50.

I have been to Knoxville twice since Christmas, and I am pretty sure you all broke record highs both time I was there.  I just need to start packing my flip-flops, swimming trunks, and beach towel for my trips in the future.

At least there was no melting ice rink in the middle of market square this time! Also to note, it's really odd to have a record high like we had, with strong southerly winds and a front moving through, and then go back to about 15 degrees above average the next day in the middle of winter. I think we hit 63 today and are forecast to be in the 60s most of the week.

Very heavy rain and more thunder than during the severe event Saturday when I didn't hear thunder here at all. 

Awesome.  I think we had thunder during Saturday's event.  There were so many transformers blowing as the wind rolled through here,  it was tough to distinguish between the two.  Looked like plenty of convective fireworks in SW VA though.   I would put the wind event for MBY as a top two event in the time I have lived here and maybe first.  If we would have had leaves on the oaks....the trees would have been dropped.  As it was, only the pines were affected.   Their shallow root systems combined with rainfall and little protection from the dormant deciduous trees allowed them to take a beating.  Some of those trees were 50-60 years old or even older.
