  1. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Tellico you should still have some time yet for more if the back edge it to me, there is still a good 30 to 40 miles between me and you for you to keep getting a little more, plus sometimes the streams/bands get stuck running against the mountains which could keep you in snow longer yet.
  2. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Yeah you got stuck with warm at the beginning to cool down, I was lucky being further west when the sun rose I was in overcast, and only warmed to 36.
  3. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Yeah I agree models didn't do to bad here I'm no longer under returns from BNA radar, still getting light snow with nickle flakes, MRX i'm right on the edge of no precip. Curious to see if there is still snow falling past radar returns. Right close to 2". EDIT: Back edge is back edge it appears, down to just flurries now.
  4. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Yeah flakes went back to nickles and dimes, about 15 minutes ago, only have maybe 20 miles between me and the back edge of the band using BNA radar. Yeah I seem to always be perfectly down stream of West Knox especially with SSW flow.
  5. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Got about an inch and a quarter but getting heavier snow again sitting at 20. Roads around here treated with Brine are now turning white, untreated roads of course are really bad. Back edge of the last band shows getting closer to me using BNA radar, but I suspect the back edge is a little further back than radar is showing due to BNA being so far away. Would bet its at least 20 miles further west than is represented on BNA radar.

    Same here think we are both in the beginning of the final band, Moderate snow here too. Much nicer snow.
  7. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Borderline moderate snow now nickles and dimes mixed first time I've seen nickles. Hopefully we can hang on the that final band for a good bit, it is good. I'm on the leading edge of it I believe. Down to 23.
  8. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Believe I am just starting to get into the final band now. Flakes are picking up and larger in size, some dimes now and gradually picking up in intensity.

    This probably belongs in banter but I swear Hytop has the most maintenance issues of any radar site I have ever seen! Think they built it on a native burial site or something and it is cursed.
  10. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Yep I have been stuck in them for a bit now... Waiting on the final band, looks as though its getting closer by triangulating all area radars with hytop being down.

    Yeah your area will have a really hard time getting anything. GSP did a good write up about warmth getting trapped in the valleys on your side of the mountains.
  12. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    For those of us in the valley that last band seems to be holding its own and might take hour to 2 hours to work through if you are north of Chatt. That is where we should score. I'm actually surprised at how well that band is holding its own even as it works away from BNA radar with a gap with Hytop down it is still showing good returns further away from BNA radar site.
  13. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Exactly the same here, bout .5 inch and fluctuating snow types and intensities. Hoping that last band can drop an inch or so with the best ratios and lift. That would get to MRX forecast amounts. Down to 25 here.
  14. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    Yep and I am in them now back up to borderline moderate snow, and 26 degrees. Like Jeff says the majority of the snow we get will be from the back band. Best ratios and DGZ area. Everything in front is bonus.
  15. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    What sucks is as that band leaves BNA its going to look lighter and ligher on BNA radar and no Hytop in between to get accurate returns.
