  1. Not sure if I was supposed to expect any snow on the ground here, but Oak Ridge has no snow. Just light flurries.
  2. I'm in Oak Ridge, and I can confirm that temperature. It's definitely cooler than what was forecasted. I saw a little over an inch for the Christmas Eve Storm. I'm hoping that I'll see more than that this go around.
  3. I asked MRX on Facebook a couple hours ago if there was a chance they could extend the WSW westward to the valley. They said it's possible, but not likely.
  4. This is probably banter, but it's related to this system. MRX is going to have a 1 hour twitter chat tomorrow at 7:00 PM EST to answer questions about the upcoming system.
  5. Those are great photos. Crazy how Knoxville saw a little bit of snow on the ground while Oak Ridge got blanked.
  6. Cold drizzle in Oak Ridge (I moved to Oak Ridge back in May when I married my wife). I hope I get to see some flakes, as I definitely don't expect any meaningful snow on the ground.
  7. That snow hole in Anderson County, lol. That would be something to see the eastern valley get a decent snow to start off winter.
  8. When was the last time that Tennessee was hit with a tropical storm?
  9. MRX: Tomorrow, we have a southward sagging cold front that will drop down out of the Ohio River Valley. This front is associated with an upper level low across Quebec. With the front to our north and the flattening high to our south, zonal flow will be in place across the region. We`ve got two areas to watch for shower and storm development tomorrow. We should see showers and storms redevelop along the cold front, to our north, tomorrow afternoon and drift down into southwest VA and northeast TN by early evening. The other area to watch will be across the central and northern Cumberland Plateau. Several CAMs show showers and storms developing across western TN/KY early tomorrow afternoon and progressing eastward through the day and onto the Plateau by early evening. These showers and storms develop due to an impulse moving out of the Central Plains tomorrow morning and riding along the cold front. The better dynamics will be well of to our north but we will be on the extreme southern fringe of the upper jet. We may be close enough to get enough upper level support to see a few strong to possibly severe storms from early evening through midnight. 850 mb flow is also marginal with westerly flow around 20 to 30 kts. So if we do get the upper support, some storms have the potential to become strong to severe as instability will be moderate with MLCAPE values around 1000 J/kg. If we don`t see the upper support, we should still see showers and storms move through but they will be more of the garden variety and shorter lived. Having said that, even these garden variety storms can produce hail and gusty winds given enough instability but the better chances of seeing anything severe would come from longer lived cells. The main threat area looks to be along I-40 and northward. The SPC has placed this area in a marginal risk for severe weather for tomorrow. The main threats will be isolated damaging wind gusts and small hail.
