  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. 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.

  4. 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. 


  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?

    MRX posted about the snow starting at Morristown and mentioned sun angle causing it not to accumulate. <_<

    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!
