    Incredible. Looks like KTRI bottomed out at 14°, while Abingdon dipped to 9°. Meanwhile, a PWS in Bristol, VA, recorded a low of 4.3°, while a PWS in Meadowview, VA recorded a low of 2.6°. Obvious cautions about relying on PWS data apply.

    Yes, not even my car under our carport was spared. Fortunately, that’s the only issue I encountered on my commute. (My office complex’s parking lot is a different story.)

    Incredibly thick fog has developed within the last hour. Temp is hovering around freezing. This may spell trouble in the morning.

    @nrgjeff KU or Michigan should be #1, but my money is on Duke retaking the top spot. No questioning that the Dukie bias is real this year...

    My wife said the exact same thing, lol. I measured 2.5" of new snow here, and it's still coming down. Just enough to excuse working from home today!

    Blunder and John, I share your disappointment in lack of snow. Purely from a scientific standpoint, this storm was fascinating, and I believe there are valuable lessons to be learned. From an amateur/hobbyist viewpoint, such lessons are invaluable in analyzing model output and filtering through the noise. In particular, the hi-res models scored a coup with the enhancement shown in Sullivan and Hawkins Counties and the shadow shown in southern Washington, Greene, and Carter counties. Our microclimates are simultaneously infuriating and enthralling.

    After watching UK’s loss to Seton Hall, I believe Auburn and UT to be the class of the SEC in 18/19. Point Guard U looked completely lost at the position yesterday. Of course, Florida will be tough as always, and Clanga will make some noise in conference play. Look out for LSU or Arkansas as a possible sleeper.

    Do we have anyone here from Mt Carmel? At 1145, MRX relayed a report from 1 WNW Mt Carmel of 11”. If this has ground truth, that same spot would be well over a foot by now.

    Seeing photos from the northern part of the county and it’s a different world than here. Also seeing that there are several accidents along 81. I forget which model/run it was, but I made a comment about it wanting to wipe the 81 corridor off the map. As it turns out, that was somewhat accurate...lol.

    That’s awesome, man. I’m thrilled for you. Kingsport/Sullivan Co. is a very feast or famine spot. Just noticed the official total at KTRI is now 9.3”, breaking the all-time single-day record for December. Also this: 1145 AM SNOW 2 WNW MOUNT CARMEL 36.57N 82.69W 12/09/2018 M11.0 INCH HAWKINS TN TRAINED SPOTTER

    Wondering if Carvers lost power. Friends in Kingsport did hours ago. They’re getting absolutely rocked. Meanwhile, moderate snow continues here. Looks like 2.5”.

    Hey Waltrip, same story here just south and east of downtown. Seeing moderate snow now, but temp has inched up to 34.2. Looking like around 1.5” now. .

    Very light snow. Radar seems to indicate minor dryslotting. Will be interested to see how this changes once the batch toward Knoxville moves east. Precip angle looks to be changing slightly.

    Have about 1” on the ground with all surfaces coated. Had .60” of rain and sleet before transitioning to snow this morning. Radar looks good to the west but I’m seeing only light snow atm.

    3° drop in an hour to 37°. Rain and snow mix. Hasn’t yet switched over.
