  1. Snowing pretty heavy still maybe not quite as heavy as before at the moment, but looks like we have somewhere between 1/3-1/2in on the grass now.
  2. Just pouring snow here now and whitening up too! Temp has crashed to 30 with a dewpoint of 29
  3. Picking up here too now at the house. I’d call it borderline heavy snow now with bigger flakes. Temp holding at 31. No accumulation yet though. It’s very elevation driven around here though (when is it not). In town it’s still a mix in places, but when you go above about 1300ft here and away from town it’s all snow. I’m at about 1430ft here at the house.
  4. Been snowing moderately here for about the last 20min all snow! Temp down to 32
  5. Similar here too Powell. Temp 34. Dewpoint 31. Something that I don’t understand is that most, if not all the modeling, including the NAM has accumulating snow with dewpoints and of course temps around 33-34. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it snow and stick when the dewpoint was above freezing. Of course, we see it happen when the temps and dewpoints are crashing, but not this way usually? I guess the NAM is thinking the rates will be so heavy that will overcome the dewpoints and temps?
  6. Temp is currently 36 with a dewpoint of 27. I’m under yellow returns on radar and actually have a few flakes making it to the surface.
  7. 25 degree dewpoint here in NE Hamblen Co. The NE wind working it’s magic here in the valley for sure!
  8. Went skiing with my son today at Sugar Mtn. In a way I wish that I could have been here to see it come through. I have a friend that says it snowed about 1-1.5in near his house which is just a couple miles away. So have to assume it was similar at the house. It did melt quite a bit today, but definitely could tell when we got back that it had snowed, as there was still some left on the rooftops and in the yard. Meanwhile at Sugar, they were reporting 5in yesterday and it snowed from about 11:30-4 today, pretty heavy at times. That combined with the machines blowing all day made for some excellent skiing conditions!
  9. That was nice while it lasted! Looked like it was around 36-40 DBZ on radar!
  10. And now my goodness I’m under an extremely heavy band that is just dumping heavy snow up to 3/4 in on the picnic table and even trying to stick to the concrete walkway.
  11. Still snowing but not as hard. We have a nice heavy dusting out there right now temp down to 30.
  12. Lot of fine flakes but it’s really coming down hard! Temp now 31 and have a light dusting on the car and grass. Flake size has definitely increased now! Back to nickel sized and just pouring snow!
  13. Now have snow with some nickel sized flakes!
  14. Getting a sleet shower here currently. Not much of anything on radar though, maybe it’s below the beam? Interesting none the less.
  15. Actually more flakes now looks pretty cool borderline light snow from time to time. Good sized flakes. It looks like it’s moving from NE to SW. Don’t we usually see that when an upper low is off to the East/NE and rotating moisture back down the valley? Could there be a weak shortwave in the flow producing this activity this AM?
  16. Yes. That’s right. Actually I just looked out and saw a couple flakes right now. Just a stray here and there. Better than nothing I guess
  17. Wow thanks for sharing Holston. I’m off exit 15 on I81. Should have gotten up earlier. I could have run up the road a couple exits. I actually live on a ridge extension of Bays Mtn, known as Little Mtn, but it’s not helping me this AM. Nairy a flurry in the air that I’ve seen so far.
  18. Decent snow shower rolling through right now here, mixed with graupel too. Looks like it was really coming down just to my south
  19. Right now about 1/4in of ice and 1.5in of snow on top on the picnic table. I just made this picture a few mins ago. It’s kind of hard to see but about the best I could do at night
  20. Now have right at an inch on the picnic table. Nothing sticking to roads yet but it’s down to 29 now with moderate to heavy snow
  21. I was actually thinking the same thing Stove! The plateau can hold up the cold, maybe it could also hold up the dry air?
