    Winter 2018-2019 Observations

    Just had my whole house shake for about 15 seconds about 15 minutes ago, apparently another earthquake just hit the area. If so, it's the 3rd this week, but first one I've felt.

    The heavy snow line here was above 2500 feet. Below that 2.5-3 inches were standard. I normally would not have felt bad about getting 2.5 inches here. But it was tough to see the 10+ modeled get down to 20-25 percent of that. At 2500 feet there was 7 inches. At 3500 feet there was 14. So totals almost doubled with every 1000 feet of elevation or so.

    It has about double the depth here vs actuality except for the very tops of the mountains.

    Looks like it's beginning to shrink and pull out. Days ago when the Euro was just hammering the area with yard stick totals part of the reason was that this thing hung around for 20 hours pulling in moisture off the Atlantic.

    Loudon Co reported snow on I-75 in patches at 4:41 am. So that band must have gotten going pretty well for them. Knox had been reporting rain/snow at Tys.

    I've managed to add 3/4ths of an inch with moderate snow still falling, getting to 32 has helped a lot in the accumulation dept. I'd guess the south end of Campbelll to Claiborne county and maybe North Knox, Anderson, Union to Jeff County added an inch or more if it was all snow for them. I know MRX said the rain/snow line was between Knox and Morristown.

    The temp went from 35 to 32 here in the snow, so with luck you can drop a degree or three as well.

    It's snowing pretty hard here, quarter sized flakes roughly. It looks like it'd be really coming down just south of me. Are you under heavy returns at all? It may be because they are close to the radar and wet snow/mix is highly reflective, but Jefferson and Grainger are under some 35dbz bands.

    Quite a blossoming of the radar. You don't often see virtually the entire half of the state just blossom with returns over one radar cycle. Looks like some stout bands set up over the area. Don't know if it's rain or snow falling but looks really heavy around North Knox, Anderson, Southern Campbell, Morgan and Union County.

    Heavy snow here as well, it had been heavy drizzle after some earlier snow showers for a good while but the system is finally generating enough lift to get moisture into the snow growth zone. I also have to say I've rarely seen snow or anything coming in from Middlesboro Kentucky. There's some 2800-3000ish peaks inbetween us, hopefully they squeeze out some of that moisture.
  11. AO to go with the above post.
  12. As we get towards Christmas the teleconnections look favorable. The AO is also forecast to tank towards late month. Tough to beat a strong +PNA, a -AO, -NAO, and the EPO falling rapidly towards negative and the WPO going towards negative helps too. When it's negative or neutral it doesn't effect our weather much. But when it's positive in January we tend to be slightly AN.

    Unlikely to amount to much but once better returns arrived it's snowing big quarter to half dollar sized flakes.

    Pure rain here. Above 3000ft on Cross Mountain where the NAM kept dropping 28-32 inches, it appears that about half that actually fell. While no one lives there, there was some tough travel across it this morning, including a wrecked plow.
