KMEM was all over the place last night, but did manage 37. Not bad! 35 at KMEG. A few isolated low 30s. I see some isolated frost in Cordova, not a lot though.

We have some patchy frost too...but it should be more widespread tonight for sure, for almost everyone here in middle TN and SCK.

Hourly reports show some freezing temps in eastern west TN and southern middle TN.  Mostly the same locations that already hit freezing a couple of weeks ago.  I had 36 when I left with just a little frost.

Easily some of the densest fog I've ever seen this AM.... Visibility under 100 yards at times, maybe less than 50 yards.  And this is along I40.

Goodness that is some dense fog! Probably somewhere just over tenth of a mile at my location in Midtown. It did lighten up in a few places when I was driving, though.

I've heard rumors of being able to see the Northern Lights tonight across the SE and they have been seen in NC and VA...but haven't heard of any sightings in TN yet.

Born in D.C I survived 1993 and 1996 snowstorms, and have been fascinated ever since.

There are some pics from Spaceweather.com from Lebanon. Amazing pictures coming in from all over...perhaps the furthest south its been in a generation or more. I've read some posts of it being seen in the Arlington area (outskirts of Shelby Co.)

Of course...once in a lifetime event and I'm in Florida this week.  ::bangingheadintowall::

I just went to have a look outside and I can't see anything here. I moved and now I live very close to the mall so the light pollution is terrible. I've seen the northern lights once before when I was younger.

Could this be our next severe weather chance?



It's way past model truncation, so it needs to be taken with a HUGE grain of salt.
