    ...Wintry Conditions Expected Late Today into Tonight...
    Rain will develop today as a frontal boundary moves across the
    region. The periods of rain will change over to snow by mid to
    late afternoon over some of the higher elevations, with a change
    to all snow showers even in valley areas tonight.
    Snowfall amounts of up to an inch will be possible across the
    Northern Plateau, Southwest Virginia, and Northeast Tennesee by
    late tonight, with higher amounts up to 2 inches over some of the
    higher elevations.
    Travel may become difficult due to snow covered roads and reduced
    visibility especially over the higher elevations. If you must
    travel, use caution while driving.
    Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and other local media for
    further details or updates.

  2. Just my own personal observation here but so amazing that we have all these fancy weather models and hi-tech tools in 2019, and man is no closer to being able to determine precisely what , when, or exactly where the weather will be. Only the Creator knows what the future holds. At 5 p.m. it was still 31 degrees and not even a complete dusting and 2 days ago we were under a Winter Storm Watch. Failure to launch in NE TN valley.

    I have been watching the d10-15, because I would really like to see some extended winter.  That said, what the models are spitting out inside of d10 is crazy.  The first is the 12z GFS actual surface temp map(not departures).  The second is the 0z Euro departure maps.   There are -61 departures over the Plains on the Euro op.  We saw this(temp extremes on models) a few days ago.  It would take only one coastal of any variety to send that stuff south.  One would think a storm might right that boundary at some point.  


    I try to remain optimistic but as Mack says, "these are always 7-10 days away."

    MRX says light accumulation here Wednesday into Thursday. That's usually their wording for 1-3 inches. Up to a 50 percent chance of snow Saturday night. The short waves rotating from the NW over the next few days change their timing with almost every run.

    MRX not impressed in am disco. Higher elevations may get an inch of snow after we all get our 2 inches of rain.
