    December 8-10 Storm Discussion

    New Disco from a few minutes ago from Morristown: As the winter weather events approaches late tonight into early Sunday morning models are beginning to come in to better agreement but still highly uncertain where the strong gradient in snowfall totals will setup. A surface lows is currently tracking along the northern Gulf as an upper level trough progresses across the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Surface temperatures are currently in the 30s areawide. There are a few locations in the higher elevations and in SW VA that are currently below freezing but most of us will need help from some dry air advection and dynamic cooling from heavy precipitation. Looking at the current radar, the main band of precipitation that will bring snowfall to the area is still back in Arkansas. Models have this rotating through the forecast area Sunday morning. In fact, some of the NAM model soundings indicate around 100 J/Kg of elevated CAPE early Sunday. The lift is fairly impressive in this band as the surface low transitions to the GA coast. Snowfall totals will be highly dependent upon where this band tracks and just how much cooling occurs under this precipitation. With models continuing to trend towards higher amounts in this band, adjusted amounts up slightly for locations in extreme NE TN and SW VA. Most models suggest there will be a strong gradient in amounts just to the north of the Knoxville metro area. Model soundings have a nearly isothermal profile along the 0 degree Celsius isotherm below 700 mb or so for portions of the central and northern Tennessee Valley. Based on the latest guidance and forecast went ahead and extended the warning and advisory slightly southwestward. Also, for the update cut back on snowfall totals across the southern Valley. Model soundings suggest that most locations will stay enough above freezing to keep precipitation mostly rain. Even if there was a brief mixture, do not think much would be able to stick with temperatures staying just a couple of degrees above freezing.

    The WWA which includes Knoxville was updated about 30 minutes ago and says 2-4 inches.

    Been since last year since I posted, but getting back in the game now that it’s winter and there’s a potential for snow. I’m sure everyone has seen, but haven’t seen it posted. Knoxville and points north are now in a WWA. Calling for 2-5 inches.

    Winter Speculation 17/18 -December Thread

    As Carvers stated, forums were created as an avenue for discussion and learning. Obviously, in order to have a forum, you must have members. There have been numerous mentions this winter of wanting to grow this forum. Unfortunately, pompous posts like the one above will not only hinder growth, but also the objective of this forum. I sincerely hope this is an aberration.

    Why even look at the models?!? They are flip flopping all over the place. I’m about to the point of just waking up and walking outside to determine what the weather is going to be for the day.

    January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    Good ole Powell!! Every board needs the eternal optimist. Just like UT football, I’m kinda of jaded when it comes to these types of systems for the Valley. Witnessed for over 30 years systems drying up as they come across the plateau. Hoping for the best this time!

    It’s starting to look a little ragged to me on radar. Back to the SW, moisture seems to be drying up and breaking apart in Alabama. Hopefully, it will hold together.
  13. Not sure how anywhere East is fading fast. Another 100 mile shift East and nearly the entire state comes into play. If anything, this thing is trending towards getting East TN in play.
