  1. Yes it’s really something else. I’m in Pigeon Forge with the family and you can just barely see any of the mountains. Also it rained here earlier this AM and everyone’s car has dried dust droplets all over it now that it has dried off. Pretty crazy to think that I can scrape dust from the Sahara off of my vehicle!!
  2. Hit 33 this AM with a pretty heavy frost everywhere. Like everyone else, I’m hoping this is it until Fall as well. I had waited to put most of my plants out-only had about a dozen tomatoes out, which I had to cover up with buckets as well. The thing I was most worried about was my blueberry crop which seems to have fared ok, thankfully. Got to get the rest of my plants in the ground it’s time for summer!
  3. Bottomed out at 33 not officially a freeze, but there is ice on the cover of the trampoline. Tonight has me more concerned than last night with the ridge moving overhead. Like MRX said, there will be excellent radiational cooling.
  4. An intense snow shower moving through here right now as well. It’s more of a graupel/ice chunk kinda snow but really cool. Even have a light dusting on house tops and grass.
  5. I was working in Sneedville today, it snowed off and on there, but when I got back to Bean Station I noticed the ground was white in spots. Sure enough, just as I came back into Morristown, I caught up with the tail end of the line and man it was Awesome!! Heavy snow! Just got home and looks like I have about 1/3in on the grass and picnic table.
  6. Finally snowing here in Morristown. It seemed like it took forever for it to get here.
  7. Finally a decent snow shower is rolling through here at the house have a light dusting on the picnic table and trampoline. Temp down to 32
  8. Ended up with about 3/4in-1in at the height of but melting quickly now that the rates have lessened.
  9. 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.
  10. Just pouring snow here now and whitening up too! Temp has crashed to 30 with a dewpoint of 29
  11. 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.
  12. Been snowing moderately here for about the last 20min all snow! Temp down to 32
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 25 degree dewpoint here in NE Hamblen Co. The NE wind working it’s magic here in the valley for sure!
  16. 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!
  17. That was nice while it lasted! Looked like it was around 36-40 DBZ on radar!
  18. 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.
  19. Still snowing but not as hard. We have a nice heavy dusting out there right now temp down to 30.
  20. 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!
  21. Now have snow with some nickel sized flakes!
  22. Getting a sleet shower here currently. Not much of anything on radar though, maybe it’s below the beam? Interesting none the less.
