"So is the drought over ?"
No, I'm afraid not. With heavy rain on a dry ground, runoff is often the result. Earlier last week, Knoxville was over 10" below normal for rainfall. Today, Knoxville is just under 5" below normal for rainfall.

"Should I carry an umbrella with me on Monday ?"
No need. Although it will be damp and mostly cloudy, more rain arrives later Monday evening.

"Will I need my sunglasses on Monday ?"
Perhaps around midday, when skies break, but more clouds roll in during the afternoon.

Updated: 02/10/2016 - You've probably heard that no two snowflakes are the same, and Tonya wanted to know why they're different shapes.
Updated: 02/10/2016 - From camping to curiosity, you may want to be able to tell the time of day by looking at the sun.
Updated: 02/10/2016 - Ross asked me to explain why the city can be a lot warmer than the rural areas.
