    December 8-10 Storm Obs

    super heavy snow in louisville tn, just north of tys. Conditions went downhill very quickly. Went out in the jeep around 830am to mostly sleet with rain and trace snow. Switched to incredibly heavy snow by 9, over 1 inch on elevated surfaces, roads covered in very slick snow/sleet. Many smaller cars are now stuck! That escalated quickly

    Maybe I missed this but looks like MRX added all of Blount County to the WWA (previously we weren't included here in Louisville), specifically mentions issues with the commute Monday. Heavy sleet just started in Blount County near TYS (just north) ...SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL ACROSS PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS AND NORTHERN TENNESSEE VALLEY TODAY... Moderate to locally heavy snow will continue across Southwest Virginia, Northeast Tennessee, and the mountains along the North Carolina border. Significant snow accumulations are expected in these areas, especially over the higher terrain. The moderate to heavy snow will taper off late this afternoon. Scattered rain and snow showers are expected again tonight and Monday, with only light additional snow accumulations.

    WXsouths paid blog is a little more bullish for the knoxville area north in this mornings update.. last night not so much. We shall see... in other news. The SREF plumes are getting fun looking at snow totals for TYS (I know I know.. just for fun lol). I'll post an update for a couple cities later in the afternoon if someone else doesnt

    Can't stop looking at the GEOS 16 floater (Snow and Ice). Don't know why but watching the sunrise (and incredible shadow distance) is really cool...

    On a completely different note, the GOES16 floater is pointed at TN today. I get mesmerized watching it sometimes, be neat to see the storms popping up this afternoon http://weather.cod.edu/satrad/exper/?parms=meso-meso2-truecolor-200-0-100-1&checked=map&colorbar=undefined

    Reading your write up Jeff gives me shivers! This moment is burned in my mind's eye until the day I die. I will see more of these! I feel as if the entire valley gasped at the beauty at fulll totality. We thought we were secluded in the country but could hear hoots, hollers, and people weeping (seriously) for miles haha Had family in Chattanooga that insisted it was just as good south of Chatt (well outside the path of totality), tried explaining that it's like the lotto... unless you are 100% in and have the right numbers, you don't win!... They thought I was crazy when I told them the sun actually went dark and you could see stars oh well

    Well, nevermind there goes the mystery "Then, late Friday evening, the USGS released an update, saying the University of Memphis determined that a quarry blast caused the magnitude 1.9 earthquake." http://www.wvlt.tv/content/news/Maryville-police-Whole-building-shook-following-mysterious-booms--490006281.html
