  1. Light snow all day. Not much accumes but kept things dusted up pretty good. Nice day. "Chestnuts roasting on an...............".
  2. Nice pic TP! Didn't get above freezing here today with wind. Chilly.
  3. Another two incher here. Third one of the winter. We need a good snow by Christmas. It's 17.4 and looks to stay cold for a few days so at least this snow will hang around for a while which is nice.
  4. Nice burst of snow and "slivers" now. Not really sleet but like shiny snowflakes. It's dusted up pretty good now.
  5. Maybe a few flakes in the air Wed morning. Then it gets chilly for a couple of days. From GSP........ Temp profiles continue to support a wintry mix over the higher terrain Wed morning with rain transitioning to sleet then mostly snow. Snow amounts still looking less than about 2 inches with sleet and/or frz rain up to about 0.15 inches. These amounts, of course, will be highly sensitive to QPF.
  6. Getting a few heavier flurries now. Streamers are setting up somewhat on radar. Maybe we can squeak out an inch tonight before it's all said and done. Still windy and cold. Down to 21.1 degrees with a sustained at 22 and gusts to 40.
  7. Same here. Two inches max. I wonder what happened with this system and why the forecasts busted so bad. It'll be interesting see the post event analysis from the experts on this one. But, for all I know it might pick back up this afternoon and we get plastered.
  8. Something's been strange with the trajectory of the flow with this storm. It's been oriented more north than northwest. Maybe that'll change this afternoon but so far this event has been rather disappointing. I'll take what I can get but it's not what I expected.
  9. Hammer time now. Fat flakes and like Moto said best rates yet.
  10. Agreed. About an inch here and the radar doesn't look real impressive. Moderate snow at 23.4 degrees and windy. Not feeling the 6 to 12 but a nice winter day shaping up.
  11. I'm in a grapple storm too. Need the upper temps to cool a few more degrees and turn those into some fatties.
  12. Switching between flurries and very light snow here. Just now slipped below freezing at 31.8. This is going to be our first real winter event for 19/20. No matter how big. The next 24 hours are going to be fun.
  13. Just upgraded us to a warning. 6 to 12 for us, over a foot higher up. ...A PERIOD OF ACCUMULATING SNOW AND VERY WINDY CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT... .In the wake of a vigorous cold front, brisk northwesterly winds and associated moisture will reach the southern Appalachians starting tonight. A fairly extended period of snowfall and very windy conditions then will continue through Monday and linger well into Monday night. Snowfall accumulations will be highly dependent on elevation and be most significant on northwest facing slopes. Most lower mountain elevations away from the immediate Tennessee border will see less than 3 inches for the event as a whole, but the higher ridges, above 3500 feet, will see 6 to 12 inches. A few ridgetop locations will exceed 12 inches, especially in the Smokies.
  14. The guys are coming to put up our Christmas decorations up tomorrow. Right on cue, let the Holiday season begin! ...A PERIOD OF ACCUMULATING SNOW AND VERY WINDY CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT... .In the wake of a vigorous cold front passage late today, northwest upslope flow and associated moisture will spill into the southern Appalachians from the west starting tonight. A fairly extended period of snowfall and very windy conditions will then continue through Monday and linger well into Monday night. Snowfall accumulations will range wildly, from 1 to 2 inches at many lower mountain elevations away from the immediate Tennessee border to 3 to 6 inches in some places along the immediate Tennessee line, to 6 to 12 inches at the higher elevation locations above 4500 feet, especially in the Smokies.
