  1. Feb 1st-2nd 2018 Potential Snow Event.

    So, it we do end up with a couple of inches from the first event, and we stay in low 30s tomorrow and get a good frozen base over night, how will that actually affect the snow to rain to snow sequence on Sunday? I'm guessing the models would not have the capability to pick up on any effect from that? Also....agree with Carvers, Nut, KV and others...great to see more posters here...seems like this maybe the most I've seen active. A little snow brings out the kid in all of us! :-)
  2. January 15-16 Arctic Boundary Obs

    Just started coming down in Kingsport...decent size flakes, not real heavy though. Temp dropped from 44 to 39 in about an hour...surprised it got up to 44 today.
  3. Winter Banter 2017/18

    Glad to be lurking again...always fun to follow during the winter, tracking potential storms. Looking like Christmas may be interesting?? Still a long ways out. Jeff mentioned about the level of commitment for some type of radio broadcast, which is very true....but, what about a weekly Periscope or an as-needed Periscope during an event? For the Vol fans here, these past few weeks have been wild...I've watched Tony Basilio from Knoxville do a number of Periscope broadcasts on an "emergency" basis during this coach search. I don't think its difficult to setup....just a thought. Here's to an eventful winter for our forum!
  4. Winter Speculation 17/18 -December Thread

    Hey guys...about that time of year for winter hijinks! Let's hope we have more to follow this winter. I did see Robert's post on FB last night where he talked about a big cool down coming right before Christmas...hope that works out! See the link below... By the way, I know this isn't the banter thread, but I'm with you on this coach search...wearing me out! WX South
  5. Thinking the same thing, Carver...didn't we have some severe weather in early March in 1993? This volatile weather can produce some wild swings.
  6. I happened across a couple of photos I had stored away from the winter of 1996...we had lots of snow that year in NE Tennessee...one picture was taken on January 8th, which was about 11"-12". The other picture was taken on February 3rd...this was in the 14" range. If I remember right, a few days after the January 8th snow, we had another decent storm, around 6"-8" on top of the accumulation from the 8th. There had been some melting, but it really piled up. My son was born in 2000, so he hasn't seen this kind of accumulation...he just hears about "the good ole days"!
  7. Southern System 1/5-1/8 2017 OBS

    About 2.5" in Indian Springs...very dry and fluffy. A lot more wind last night than I thought we would have...blew snow through the screened in porch.

    Really good to see all these new folks on the forum!!

    We've got snow in Indian Springs, just east of Kingsport. Actually, pretty good rate!

    Wow...Mark Reynolds and the WJHL in house model still showing a max of 2" for TRI, if that. This would be a great coup for him and their computer.

    Hey tnweathetnut, is Tropical Tidbits the best site for the RGEM?

    MRX updated the WSW about an hour ago: URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MORRISTOWN TN 1037 PM EST THU JAN 5 2017 ...SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM MAY BRING WIDESPREAD HEAVY SNOWFALL TO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY AND SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING... .A FAST MOVING CLIPPER SYSTEM WILL BEING PATCHES OF LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS TO THE REGION OVERNIGHT...BUT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE VERY LIGHT RANGING FROM NO MORE THAN A DUSTING IN MOST VALLEY AREAS TO LESS THAN AN INCH ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA AND THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF NORTHEAST TENNESSEE. SOME ROADWAYS MAY DEVELOP SLICK SPOTS...SO CAUTION IS ADVISED FOR MOTORISTS DURING THE NIGHT AND EARLY FRIDAY. A SECOND MORE POTENT WINTER STORM WILL IMPACT THE REGION FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING. THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BRING HEAVY SNOWFALL TO THE EAST TENNESSEE AND WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS...AND POTENTIALLY TO PORTIONS OF THE EASTERN TENNESSEE VALLEY AND SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA. IN THE MOUNTAINS...4 TO 8 INCHES WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS ALONG THE PEAKS WILL BE COMMON. AND IN THE VALLEY...A POTENTIAL OF 2 TO 5 INCHES IS EXPECTED...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE SHOULD THE TRACK DEVIATE FURTHER TO THE WEST. WITH THE SUBFREEZING TEMPERATURES...THE POTENTIAL FOR LIGHT SNOW TO QUICKLY ACCUMULATE BY THE EVENING RUSH HOUR COMMUTE ON FRIDAY IS A REAL POSSIBILTY. GIVEN THE SUBFREEZING TEMPERATURES... ROADS AND SURFACES WILL BE PRIMED FOR SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS AND ANY ROAD SURFACE THAT IS UNTREATED WILL BECOME TREACHEROUS OVERNIGHT.

    Ole Mark Reynolds still really downplaying any amounts to speak of in East Tennessee....just said maybe 2" at the most...heavier amounts staying in NC. Guess he could be right...not sure what he is basing that on, though...
