  1. Tn Valley Severe Weather 2018

    I think they underestimated yesterday's system in regards to the Southern Valley. No watches were issued south of Loudon county and that part of TN seemed to get hit the worst.

    From the NWS SPC:
  3. 2017-2018 Winter Observations

    Just saw half dollar and bigger size flakes in South Knoxville. Calming down now.
  4. 2017-2018 Winter Observations

    Nice moderate band moving into Knoxville. If only it was several degrees colder....
  5. 2017-2018 Winter Observations

    Getting good size flakes in South Knoxville, but it's way too warm for any accumulation.
  6. Feb 1st-2nd 2018 Potential Snow Event.

    Not even a trace in South Knoxville. It stayed as a mix through the end.
  7. Feb 1st-2nd 2018 Potential Snow Event.

    Hearing heavy wet snow in Oneida.
  8. Feb 1st-2nd 2018 Potential Snow Event.

    I would guess that the possible 2 inches in the central valley would be on ridges.
  9. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Moderate snow in South Knoxville.

    Good afternoon, guys. How's everyone been doing? I hope we get a good snow here soon.
  11. MRX appears to be in agreement, as their latest disco has no mention of the valley when talking about this system.
  12. Tn Valley Severe Weather 2017

    Here's the latest Discussion from MRX: .LONG TERM (Tonight through Wednesday)...A negative upper trough will move across the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys tonight and early Friday morning. A series of jet streaks exiting the upper trough will produce divergence aloft over the region late today through early Friday morning. These circulation around this jets will enhance the fronto-genetic forcing overnight. Models show the airmass becoming moderately unstable with MLCAPES of 1000-1500 J/Kg with Hail CAPEs of 150-300 J/kg. Shear/SR Helicity does become quite strong with favorable values for rotating updrafts with incoming storms. LCL heights lower overnight as well. Models show a 850mb jet of 40-50kts overnight. Given these parameters, isolated tornadoes are a concern with the main threat being damaging winds up to 60 mph and hail of 0.5 to 1 inch. SPC has placed essentially the entire area under a slight risk of severe thundestorms, even though the western/southern half of the area seems to have the greatest threat.

    Severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for the western half of the eastern valley until 11 PM EST.
  14. Tn Valley Severe Weather 2017

    Sometimes, it just seems like when there's a system capable of producing severe storms to the west of the eastern valley, Gandolf is standing on the Cumberland Plateau and shouting "You shall not pass!!!" Jokes aside, it's intrigues me how the eastern valley sees very little widespread severe thunderstorms.

    A few areas around Knoxville saw Golfball size hail from a couple cells. There was a report of baseball size in Bradley county.
