I wanted to update you all on the forecast. A large complex of strong storms is moving through West Tennessee. While storms to our west would normally be a concern, these are diving southeastward. The complex of storms is still affecting us, in that it is robbing our atmosphere of energy needed for storms. Therefore, our rain chances have now dropped to 20-30% for the rest of the evening and overnight.
Pictured below is a current radar view of that huge complex of storms. Whenever these big complexes form, they tend to take all the energy in the surrounding atmosphere. The atmosphere can only support so much activity at a time. We’re just far enough east for it to cause us to be mainly rain-free this evening.
This begins an extended period of 20% rain chances for the next several days. That leads us right into the Fourth of July. The next decent chance of rain should hold off until Sunday. Until then, most of us will stay dry.
You all take care and be safe in the heat. I’ll have an updated hay forecast vlog out later this evening, followed by a full blog update in the morning!
