If you want the cold and snow, look away. Because I want this to happen. At least thaw out for a bit.

Yeah, the cold and dry has gotten boring. Give me snow, or mid-60s and sunny. I'm ready for some porch time again.

Same here...bring in some snow or let's roll with an early spring...I've got so much yard work and still working on a 96' F350 and a 70 Ford 5000 tractor.  IMO, we'll pick up about 2 from the coming event...higher elevations above 4000' will get more

Bad news is, it is gonna be warmer yes but it doesn't look like sunny and warm at all with all of the Pacific air and a storm track up the Ohio Valley. There will be lots of southerly flow which will make for dreary rainy times for the escarpment and most of the mountains.

Sans a blocking pattern no doubt the two options for the southeast in the winter are cold and dry or warm and wet.  I recall some El Nino years were the sun was a rare sight during February.

Haha sorry if I seem a bit down. Just disappointed in the fact that so many reputable mets called for a possible historic winter and it has been historically bad since the big December snow. Also where I live is still recovering from the flooding from last fall which has devastated our trail system making my job much harder. I am just so tired of the rain and wet weather. It ruined my honeymoon last year with Florence, etc. Trying to stay positive isn't working.

Ha ! Ha! Well, that's okay buddy. We have all been there. Other than early December, it has been a pitiful stretch of weather. I am like you. Nothing has gone right for me lately, but I am trying the positive route. I will be back where you are I am sure. Congrats on your marriage !!! Let's hope it all gets better for all of us soon.

A SW mountains special. 

A strong cold front will bring precipitation early Tuesday,
along with very cold Arctic air. Temperatures will fall rapidly
and snow levels will fall through the morning before precipitation
tapers off by the afternoon. Moderate to heavy snow will occur
across the higher elevations of the southern North Carolina
mountains and light to moderate snowfall is expected elsewhere
across the North Carolina mountains and northeast Georgia.

It is a portion of my job yes. I mostly lead outdoor programs including kayak trips, educational lessons, etc. The high levels ruined the fall paddling season too.

Looking over at the TN Valley forum, they were ready to give up on the event over an hour ago when the temps crashed and snow rates have really cranked up Knoxville to the east. I’m hoping that some us gan score a few inches out of this.
