Spring/Summer Observations 2022


Carvers Gap
 Share

Recommended Posts

Between yesterday morning through current I've now gotten over 4 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. Looks like parts of Anderson and Knox that got the 2-3 hour drencher are well over 7 inches in the last 24 hours. Heavy rain still rolling here and even heavier for those areas. 
 
It's hard to imagine louder thunder. It's rattling windows and shaking my insides. 

Looks like you might have a hailer in your area. Regardless that’s some heavy rain.

Random question, any ideas what these biological returns on radar may be?

 

The larger donut return near Dayton appears centered of the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge. I've noticed these returns nearly every morning for a few weeks. First thought was bats, but leaving in the AM wouldn't make sense

LOL.  That is strange stuff.  I see it this morning over the same spot.  What in the world?

STL got under the train echo from hell. Classic back-building scenario WPC covers in MDs. 

Since we are so bored in the summer doldrums, maybe we should meet up at the site of that radar echo. 

Finally @PowellVolz that's some nasty damage, summer Marginal Risk micro/macro-burst things. Like the Ukraine fire hydrant though, whether is coincidence or planned.

I think I am going to make a trip to the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge this weekend, I really think one of the radar donut's is originating there. Now watch my luck and Ill kayak to the refuge early in the morning only to discover its a mayfly hatch haha 

Also, random but I will be opening a B&B/VRBO Tiny Homes eventually up on Walden's Ridge in the next year. We have about the lowest light pollution in most of the state (zodiacal light is clearly visible), so star gazing, lighting watching, satellite spotting etc is incredible. I sat out the last two nights and watched the lightning show from storms 40-60 miles north in Knoxville and Sevierville... if you have never seen a Starlink Train, this is the place to see it ha

Basically I am trying to setup a B&B for people who like nature, escape the valley heat, star gazing, and want to chase cool weather events (2100 feet elevation), just mention this in case anyone wants to have a gathering one day! We are walking distance to the CT as well so great resource if anyone ever needs a thru hike stop

July in Nashville is more typical of Houston suffering. Chattanooga is almost as bad. Memphis with more 100s reads like a DFW CF6. HSV is somewhere between Houston and DFW weather. This is ridiculous. I know we were due but this sux.

Had several rounds of heavy rain yesterday, including one downpour overnight that the hi-res models kept trying to kill before it got here. It made it just about 20 miles east of here before it finally died out. 

It's raining now as well.

After 1.28 since midnight, gonna finish up July with over 15 inches of rain easily, combined with the 4 inches from June 26th through the 30th, will probably cross 20 inches in the 35 day time frame. Looked like the exceptional rains were gonna be over this year, but there's basically no way we don't finish way above normal again. I'm already at nearly 50 inches for the year on an average in the mid to upper 50s.   On average I'd get about 18-20 inches from August- December. So another 70+ inch year looks very possible.

Pretty big swing and miss on the forecast today and it was probably a good thing. As of 4pm no rain in Knoxville, mods where looking at 2-4” by early afternoon.


.

The day is still young so to speak. I've had several showers during the day light hours with a small but heavy looking one just to my west. I feel like points south will be getting in on some rain over the next couple of hours.

After a day off yesterday, 1.55 inches has fallen today with some flooding in the area. Will see if any more falls today but am at 16.35 for July and 20+ for the last 36 days. 

There's so much ground water right now my septic system has a lot of rainwater in it and it's causing slow draining and flushing. I could use a dryish week or two or three.

Just north of you across the KY line close to Jelico have received up to 6 inches of rain today.

Yes, Whitley ended up with a lot of road and other flood damage. Especially around creek crossings. I'd love to avoid rain entirely today and honestly for the next week or more. That doesn't look likely. My yard is also out of control. It's crazy how many 500/1000 year floods we are seeing in the region over the last few years. Had two here in 2020, one in 2021, and west of Nashville had that monster event that may have been a 2000 year flood. Then Eastern Kentucky and SWVA getting slammed this past week.

The case for tough love and watering cut-off in July is made. Lawn is deep green again. I watered in June for the early season, but only every 3rd day. Make it root deep. Even if we flash drought (unlikely now) it should be fine..

Sod is the exception. Must be babied all season long. I have to guess sod in this area is in good shape now. I have standing water in low spots. What a regime change!
