Nice little burst of sleet in West Knoxville/Hardin Valley area. Started accumulating on cars and grass, but seems to be switching to mostly rain now. Raw weather none the less!

Definitely over performed in East Knoxville too. Actually still getting a flake or two mixed in.

That's encouraging news to read up here. Precip is closing in and will arrive in ~30 minutes. Whether it will be snow, sleet, or rain at the onset is yet to be seen. I measured a temperature of 30 when I left home at eight.

Had another burst of heavy snow, looks like it's about to pass on by after this. MRX had initially forecast this might happen but had backed off, I think one run or two I saw of the RGEM showed it, the NAM if I recall showed it in SWVA and extreme NETN. I'd guess an inch of snow fell, but due to mixing issues I seemed to have peaked at 1/2 inch or so of ground coverage. TDOT had to deal with issues on I-75 and schools dismissed.  Probably could have ridden it out on schools, as I don't expect any issues at all this afternoon.

I can see some of those big flakes here near downtown Knoxville, but mostly melted at my locations. 

I’d say around 1500’ it’s all snow around Knoxville

I'm amazed I got what I did. I was thinking 5 minutes of sleet and wet snow, then all rain. Pretty much wintery mix the whole time. Radar scope says all now for Kingsport, if it plays out, I could see a quick inch as heavy as rates were.

Hey, good news the snow panned out. Snow flakes the size of small cotton balls are falling without any mix. Accumulation is starting to occur.

Send pics.

I think the short range models may of been a little too warm the past few days with the leading edge. Just now running into snow heading into Abingdon.

Something I’ve been eyeing the past few days. Glad it planned out.

50+ DBZ over Bulls Gap right now. The back edge looks wild.

These are the biggest flakes I’ve seen in a few years.

Agreed. A slushy 1/2" has accumulated here.

I’ve been in Rutledge most of the day. On the way over here from a Morristown, snow started mixing in around Bean Station at about 10:30. Then it switched to heavy snow, flakes as big as any I’ve ever seen anywhere! Snowed till about 12:30. Totally didn’t expect that. It probably was between 1/4-1/2in on the grass, decks, and cars at the height of it. Now it’s melting off. Wife said it was snowing heavily in Morristown too. I guess the precip rate was heavy enough to drag down enough cold air to switch it over. Man, what I wouldn’t have given for the temp to have been just a few degrees colder!

3/4ths of an inch on the ground on my measuring tile and roughly an inch or a little more on the grass at home. Since I'm using my low res chromebook camera to take shots taking measurement pics is nearly impossible without laying it in the snow.

As soon as the rates slowed down temperature went back up 2° it's now a light drizzle.

The RGEM pretty much saw it 40+ hours out and I believe the NAM 12km sort of sniffed it out around 30 hours in advance. The NAM 3km on the other hand never really did grasp it. I believe as one of the posters here described it, the 3km sometimes seems to try too hard on the terrain features and elevation. With all that considered, the actual event overperformed all models at least for me.

The exact same thing occurred here in the last 5 minutes. The current temp is now 36. My final total is exactly 1 inch barring any redevelopment ahead of SWVA. About 1.5" is on the grass.
