Even with the insane heat wave, temps here in TN for June averaged out right around normal to a little below for most of the state. The heat wave makes you forget how nice the 1st half of June was.

Yup..the NW flow pattern kept us cool and wet until that death ridge built in. Looks like the current pattern retrogrades from here out.

I expect the NW flow pattern will battle the ridge all summer and as seen above the NW pattern will probably be more dominant. If that is the case... it will be due to the mean position of any ridge being in the central US.

hopefully with that ridge to our west, that could aid to us perhaps getting into a derecheo type setup... we get into a nice nw flow maybe we can get a mcs on steroids to form just beyond that ridge... i am ready for some nice action... keeping my fingers crossed gun

alot of times just to the east of the ridge is were we can get into those mcs systems to evolve... they ride along ridge as they move se direction... and with all this heat and humidity with high dews to boot... boom she goes, you have a derecho on your hands... that would be nice, i would get my rain and a taste of severe to boot wash

Ridge looks to reassert itself over the coming days, and into the weekend. However, the one bright spot with Heatwave 2.0 is that diurnal convection chances do not completely disappear, with 20-30% chances Friday and Saturday. So, perhaps some of us will have a little heat relief. Also no crazy 105+ temps expected this go around, but with dewpoints higher than the previous bout of heat, it will probably still feel that hot. (And, honestly, even though the ridge "retrograded" to the west for a time, we really didn't have "relief." There was no change in our air mass, and little rain fell for most of us.)

By Sunday, pattern finally changes some, and a “cool” front makes its way into the area with chances of rain increasing, and temps cooling. Hopefully, everyone in the state will at least some rainfall, as it’s sorely needed at this point.

The funny thing about this historic heat wave to me is that Nashville consistently recorded hotter temperatures than Memphis. scratch

Short blurb from Chris Bailey's KY wx blog:

The record setting heat wave is something that will go down in Kentucky weather history. For many cities, this heat wave can only be topped by the absurd heat that occurred back in the summer of 1936. You have just survived the most extreme period of heat in a generation!

that was due to the center of the ridge placement.

Craziness!

It sure has been nasty. Bring on a pattern change!

Another quote from Chris Bailey blog:

I want to start with a few more words about the heat wave we are just coming out of. Words cannot do justice to how impressive this thing was. Daily records, monthly records and all time records bit the dust in many cities across Kentucky and the nation. Only 1936 has featured hotter temps and a hotter stretch than the past 11 days. The 1936 heat wave was a direct result of one of the worst droughts in our nation’s history… hence the name “dust bowl”.

Many Kentucky cities have never had this many 100 degree days so early in the summer. I have NEVER been one to hype heat, just the opposite, but this heat was historical in every sense of the word.
