    I've got another inch in less than 30 minutes. This band is ripping indeed. May reach 5" here if this doesn't taper off by dawn.

    2" on the ground here south of Bristol. Snow slacked off for just a bit but has since picked up again. Another inch or two seems pretty reasonable. Heavier bands should be out of here by sunrise.
  3. This might explain one of those loud booms everybody heard Tuesday morning: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2015/02/150220-fireball-meteor-pennsylvania-space/?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=link_tw20150220news-fireballmeteor&utm_campaign=Content&sf7574664=1

    The fast rise in temps have slowed to a crawl. I've been sitting at 24º for the past hour. Solar heating is probably done for the day as the sun is behind cloudcover as mid-level clouds are rolling into the region. I suppose it will be a slow warm-up through the overnight hours with the southerly flow increasing. May get some snow or frozen precip out of the incoming system yet.

    My low was -12º. I don't think I will see that again for a long time. Also, holy moley the temperature is on the rise! 30 degrees since 8 am this morning! If this keeps up, I won't see any frozen precip at all tonight. lol...

    No worries, it was funny and creepy at the same time. And that's one of the many brilliant movies by the late/great, Stanley Kubrick. You should check out the insane conspiracy documentary about that movie called Room 237. And just to avoid cluttering up the OBS thread, here's the latest from the Upper East Tennessee Valley: 4.1 °F Watauga ES : Abingdon, VA 1.3 °F Mountain Empire Community College : Big Stone Gap, VA -.6 °F Sandlick ES : Birchleaf, VA 8.0 °F WCYB-TV5 : Bristol, VA 7.3 °F Duffield Primary School : Duffield, VA 1.2 °F Glade Spring MS : Glade Spring, VA 10.7 °F Baileyton ES : Greeneville, TN 5.9 °F Hal Henard ES : Greeneville, TN 3.7 °F Buchanan County Career Center : Grundy, VA 1.0 °F Honaker ES : Honaker, VA 1.4 °F Hurley Elementary MS : Hurley, VA 7.4 °F Cherokee ES : Johnson City, TN 7.3 °F Lamar ES : Jonesborough, TN 2.1 °F WJNV-FM : Jonesville, VA 9.4 °F John Sevier MS : Kingsport, TN 4.5 °F Johnson County MS : Mountain City, TN 4.4 °F Nickelsville ES : Nickelsville, VA -.4 °F Norton ES : Norton, VA 1.0 °F Shady Valley ES : Shady Valley, TN 5.9 °F St. Paul ES : St. Paul, VA 7.7 °F Virginia Highlands Airport : Abingdon, VA 3.9 °F Marion/Wytheville - Mtn Empire Arpt : Atkins, VA 1.9 °F Watauga Co.

    OBS

    I had -1º @ 7:30 this morning. I'm sitting at 7º right now. Expecting many more records to be crushed. Tonight is a good night to share body heat. *looks around*

    OBS

    Clinch School in Sneedville, TN, is already down to 5ºF. Unless there's something wrong with the equipment, that's the coldest I see reporting right now in the KTRI area.

    Congratulations! You may get a significant blanket of white yet if next week pans out.

    OBS

    You're northwest of me. Do you still have cloud cover? Temperature is falling like a rock here. It's 13º @ WCYB. I've got 12º my house, but I'm in a valley.

    OBS

    I think I am going to crush the forecast low tonight. I'm already at 12º @ 9 pm EST. It has fallen 3º in the past hour. Skies are clear.
  12. Seriously, move this a tick west and you're in gulf storm '93 bombogenesis territory right there. lol...
  13. If it ever snows two feet in Atlanta, Ga., you better start looking north for an invasion of Others or White Walkers.
  14. lol, that's the most hysterical clown map I've ever seen. Unless the interglacial period has ended, the GFS should probably back up and punt.
  15. Yeah, I posted in the February Arctic Outbreak thread, but it really is too far out so I'll plop it down in here.

    OH MY GOD! HOW APOCALYPTIC! THE SNOW BAND REVERSED GRAVITY!

    OBS

    Looks like a pretty good burst of moderate to heavy snow is about to pass through the region. Carver, you should be seeing something by now.

    OBS

    I received 3/4" of fresh snow this morning. Looks like bands are lining up out of SE KY and should begin advancing through KTRI in about an hour, followed by strong NW flow. May get an additional inch or two this afternoon.

    OBS

    UT didn't close? Oh wow...
  20. You probably won't wake up to anything. I don't believe precip will move into the KTRI area until the afternoon. The heavy stuff may not arrive until after 3 pm.
  21. They have the same problem forecasting rain as we do with snow this time of year.
