    I have a fully functional and gently used Davis vantage pro 2, with all the extras that were optional at the time. Been in a box about 2 years. Built a new home and can't get around the HOA restrictions to deploy it again. If interested I'd make you a good deal on it. Just let me know and like others said, anything Davis is high quality.
  2. 2018 Banter Thread

    Looked like it was temporarily replaced by a 2/8/18-2/10/18 snowstorm thread..
  3. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    I had about the same at the house in north JC (between Boones Creek & Gray, just west of I-26), 3/4 of an inch. I would add that it appeared there was a bit more in south Johnson City as I came through to my office in Erwin. Maybe 1-2 there? At my office in Erwin, we had about 2" and my office manager from Chuckey said they had around 3" or so. Side roads are all snow packed (though fairly easy to drive on) and even the interstates had quite a bit of snow and ice coming south out of Johnson City toward Asheville. One of those deals where it looks like the roads had more snow than the yards.....
  4. Winter Speculation 17/18 -December Thread

    I have been happy for all of those west and south/southwest of me seeing multiple snows to this point. Several weeks ago Carver's and I had some side discussions and thought this would be a pretty good period for the western part of our forum and that seems to have panned out nicely. Snow is a fickle critter, so of course there have been winners and losers, but to have multiple snows reaching all the way to the gulf coast before we get out of mid January is REALLY impressive and the cold has been historic! I'm sitting at 2.75" for the winter and seem to have done better than Carver's to this point (just a bit north of me) and the airport (just 5 miles ENE of me). If it hadn't been for the early December couple of inches, things would be pretty ugly around this part of the southern apps I have always viewed snow that falls before mid January as bonus snow in the mid-south... Late January to late February is usually the money month for snows as the jet continues to lower and the wavelengths also change. It's mostly felt like winter since early December, which hasn't been typical the last 2+ decades. It will be interesting to see how the rest of our winter season plays out.

    Hope you are right. GREAT win by your Jayhawks last night. You were the first person I thought of when I saw the news, lol. By the way, we are all hoping you redeem yourself here at KTRI after the last storm.. hahahahaha All kidding aside, your thoughts on our board are VERY much appreciated. Hope Chattanooga over performs!

    Awesome to have another area poster on board! Thanks for taking the time to create an account and post. I live just outside Jonesborough and work in Erwin. Please post more often..... Good luck to everyone as this band finally comes east!
  7. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    areas further south will have a better opportunity to realize deeper moisture. Not sure yet how this translates east in TN, but holding out hope for an inch or two across the area, east of the plateau..
  8. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    I remember that. There was a run or two of the NAM at the end of the run closing it as well around the same time IIRC
  9. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    Just curious, but has anyone been able to find a model that initialized correct? I have looked at a bunch and they all seem to be missing what is happening at the surface..
  10. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    Hope you overperform, Jax. Good luck!
  11. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    Where is Flash? Radar looks good over him.... nice to see so many overperform west of here. Hope that translates east.
  12. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    They have a great feed of moisture training over the same area... likely to get a couple of more
  13. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    It's pretty much time to turn it over to the mesoscale models and look for run to run differences from there. NO model will regularly accurately predict snowfall totals. Most of our region is in line for a light to spotty moderate snowfall (that in and of itself is pretty remarkable). As always, winners and losers when it comes to snow. Been a fun one to follow. Here's to a good set of 18z's!
  14. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Event

    More of an observation but here in the Tricities, the sun is out. Will be interesting to see this little system play out. In general, looks like a widespread 1-3 inch snow for the mid-south is on tap. I thought the mountains might even enhance (certainly not inhibit) precipitation in the mountains and northeast valleys, but the NAM is relatively weak for northeast TN. The 6z RGEM was pretty beefy up this way. Mesoscale model battle is on if 12z keeps the "beefy" look for northeast TN. Good luck everyone.

    12z NAM continues to sharpen and deepen the incoming longwave trough through hour 18.
