A stronger ridge

While there were indeed some showers and storms in the Jackson, Tennessee area to finish off this past week, they weren’t remotely close to the severe threshold, and they weren’t as persistent as has been seen in the Plains. This was mostly anticipated, though a gradual break down of high pressure, leading to more wet weather on Friday than Thursday didn’t take place. In fact, there was a half inch of rain in Jackson on Thursday, and nothing on Friday. Unfortunately, I did a poor job translating the forecasts of more than one outlet to my post, so we can’t officially verify things, but if we did, it looks as though an Accuweather-National Weather Service combo had the best numbers.
Actuals – Thursday .46 inches of rain, High 89, Low 66
Friday – High 82, Low 67
