  1. I noticed the same thing John. There are YouTube videos of the broadcast from 1993 in Knoxville showing the airport receiving 15in and those amounts that you mentioned above. It’s almost like every 10yrs they decrease it a little (maybe to fit the climate change narrative, uggh, but hey that’s all conspiracy that they would do that, right LOL) At this rate by the time my kids are my age, they will say there was 6in at most.
  2. I put it in the obs. thread, but it’s absolutely ripping fatties here in Mtown this AM! A nice closing shot to this storm I guess! Looks like a healthy band is setting up!
  3. Absolutely ripping snow here right now! Ground getting white fast! Where did this come from. Wow!
  4. Unbelievable that even Austin TX and places even further south are getting snow yet again today! This would have to rank in the top 2 or 3 snowiest and coldest periods in history for that area!
  5. Just about 1/3-1/2in on the grass and vehicles. Coming down at a good clip still.
  6. Got a nice dusting almost instantly
  7. Coming down pretty good now mostly snow. Temp is down to 32 dp 31. My dewpoint actually ticked down with the temp when it went from 33/32 to 32/31. Rates cooling the column?
  8. Getting some big flakes mixing in now. Temp is 33.
  9. Getting a mix of sleet and snow here now
  10. Getting some light sleet here now. Temp 37.
  11. Memphis and N MS just getting smoked right now....3”+ hour rates
  12. That’s just about always a good thing for the valley!
  13. Looks like I dropped to 17 earlier but now back up to 19 with clouds moving back in. Dewpoint is 17 though.
  14. Yes share away! I always enjoy seeing weather pics especially winter time weather pics.
  15. Found this storm in the archives: Here @Carvers Gap does an excellent job explaining what appears to have happened.
  16. In regard to that previous storm-it was February 21, 2015. I just went back and found it. I’ll put a snippet in banter since it’s not pertaining to this storm, although it would be nice for some if it could play out this way and it would be terrible for others.
  17. It would be 2015 then bc 2018 was not a kind year to the eastern valley.
  18. I remember several years back (would have to look back through the threads here, but it’s here somewhere) where a front end thump was looking to change to rain but it just never did in the eastern valley. In the foothills and mtns it warmed up to nearly 50 degrees, however it stayed in the 20’s to around 30 in the valley and stayed snow the whole time! Ended up with 5.5in at the house and I know some places just north had over a foot! That was about as strange of a situation we could ever expect around here. The thinking was that somehow there was a cold pool aloft over the valley and that the warm nose hit the mtns and just never was able to penetrate back to the west. Extremely rare system indeed.
  19. Pretty decent snow shower rolling through here right now. Temp is down to 23.
  20. I see Memphis is at 1. That is also the coldest that they have been since sometime in the 80’s. Perhaps even more impressive is the reading of -1 in Dallas TX and 2 in Shreveport LA! A testament of just how strong this Arctic airmass is.
  21. Lightning! Had to wait a long time to hear the thunder though! 42 degrees and pretty heavy rain
  22. Looks like Memphis official total was 5.3in today! I lived there from 1995-2006 and we never had more than 4in out of any one snow storm. Also, I don’t think they’ve had anything like that in Memphis proper since I moved, so that would have to mean that you have to go back at least 26 years to find a snowfall of that magnitude in Memphis!
  23. Just wow at this AFD from JAN (Jackson MS). Worth reading it just to see the extent of this historic airmass. Lake effect clouds and possibly snow streaming southeast from every lake in east TX!
  24. Thanks Holston! I wondered why my sister in Oxford was seeing a dry slot develop, it’s bc the 850 low is moving almost directly overhead. Hopefully they can switch to snow on the backside. It’s been all sleet there so far. About 2in of it too!
