  1. That run is impressive from the TX gulf coast all the way thru the Delmarva! Some Deep South peeps are either going to get a real treat or are going to get NAMMED.
  2. Totally agree! I'm a big fan of the Fall blowtorch. Great time of year to be outside in our part of the country. As long as we can keep it below the mid 80s and we don't have major fire problems I say get out and enjoy it. There is plenty of cold, dark, and dreary to come in winter even in bad years.
  3. Still waiting on the first tomato, should be pretty soon. Have had some sweet corn in the last couple of days. Wife has put up a bunch of green beens, but they have been a little buggy this year. Lots of squash, cukes, and zuchini. She has been dehydrating some if the squash and zuchini. Was a little behind on the okra so its still a ways off.
  4. You really need to know your microclimate when it comes to last freeze/frost data. I'm 50 miles or so south of Nashville and have had more than one frost into May in just the last 15 years. Don't think we have been to freezing in May since I've been here, but I know its happened in the past.
  5. 1.5" on the snowboard this morning. Temp down to 26.
  6. Ive been in and out of the bands in middle TN all day and have yet to encounter a rain drop. Drove thru the heavy band near Nashville this morning. It was ripping between Murfreesboro and Lebanon. Caught back up with it in southern mid TN later. Both times there was some sleet/snow pellets at the onset. Now getting a light sleet/snow mix with the next batch. Edit: right after I posted went outside to a rain/sleet mix. Lol!
  7. No doubt the conservative approach is what on air folks should do at this lead time. I just get tired of the "more north and east" mantra that the Nashville mets use. I get that it often works out that way, but they beat it to death even when the models show otherwise. Wow at what the CMC is doing in NC!
  8. I like Paul. However, the middle TN mets often overuse/overplay the "north of 40" thing. Sure it works at times, but anybody watching these models run knows there is potentially a much different possibility going on. Even the NWS does it at times if you read the AFDs.
  9. Haven't the Euro weeklies been advertising a cool down during about the same period that the GFS tossed out today? We'll see what happens. While we have been absolutely roasting so far, climo says everything is still on the table for at least three or four more weeks. As far as the stove, Ive burned less wood this year than anytime since I started burning full time 15 years ago. You know its really warm for Jan and February when you can't at least light a small fire in the evening to knock the chill off without running everyone out of the stove room.
  10. I have seen quite a few positive winter posts on twitter in the last couple of days. Unfortunately, they are all about cold and snow in Europe and Asia!!
  11. Most of us know that a +PNA generally leads to cold for our area. But to link it to actual historical data over a long period of time takes it to another level. Thank you John! Fascinating reading.
  12. 06Z GFS lost it totally. Its still there in some form on four or five of the ensemble members. Certainly not a very strong signal at this point. I guess it still gives me a reason to check in on the models run to run, which is more than I can say for the last three or four weeks.
  13. The 12Z GFS has a remarkably similar solution. But I don't think I'd be jumping on any wagons just yet.
  14. That look is far enough west for most of the state to at least keep an eye on it. Upper Cumberland and mountains look good. Would like to see it slow down and come in later in the evening for any potential minor accums in non-elevated areas. Have to take whatever we can get in a winter like this.
  15. Jax, you got a link to that? Interesting info. So the last two weeks in Nashville is comparable to normal deep winter weather in New Orleans. lol
