Good morning! Starting first with the latest state drought map....we have seen quite a bit of rainfall on and off the past several days, but the same can't be said in West Tennessee. Limited rainfall has led to Extreme Drought for portions of the state, while the remainder sits in Severe and Moderate drought. This will be something to watch moving forward, especially with East Tennessee back to normal.
In terms of weather ahead, our active streak continues. Rounds of showers and storms will find us through the day today, before things quite down tonight. Redevelopment takes place into Tuesday, though activity will be more isolated to scattered. Higher Resolution guidance depicts an opportunity for a line of storms Tuesday night into Wednesday, so we'll have to keep a close eye on how things evolve. For now, look for Wednesday to be the quietest day, before increasing chances return Thursday and into the day Friday.
I want to take a second to also apologize for the gap in coverage late last week and into the weekend. I was apart of those who were stuck in Eastern Kentucky and dealing with the historical flooding taking place. With no phone reception, it was impossible to update you all on the latest (here, social media, or elsewhere). Thank you for understanding!
