My sister is in grad school in Jackson, MS and she's got what looks to be an inch so far.  They weren't expecting that. Actually, make that 2".

4" in McComb, MS. 4" also reported in parts of Corpus Christi, TX.

I'm watching this weekend closely.  I have to leave Knoxville to drive to Bristol first thing Saturday morning (leaving Knox around 6:30), and will be headed back to Knoxville in the afternoon.  I see absolutely no chance of sufficient snow to have any impact on the interstate and I'll only be on the main surface streets, but I'm always conscious of those freak events that nobody sees coming.  Winter survival kit is going into the truck today!

Wow...that is so cool to see that in early December.  Heat Miser let his brother give Southtown an early Christmas gift, after all.

Radar returns are increasing in southeast TN--heading up the Great Valley.  Feels like one of those weather events when a surprise could happen.  Temperatures are just below freezing (30-32F), but if snow can fall at a decent rate today, temps won't be able to rise much in areas where a heavier band could set up.

Residents of Birmingham are benefiting from my snow curse. I donít move there until the summer, so naturally they get their snowstorm 6 months before I arrive

Winter 2019 will be one for the record books here in BNA. Thanks Mundie, always taking one for the team.

Also, my brother lives near Canton, Ga and said it is pounding right now.

Actually, that forum is surprisingly pretty dead- it seems it never recovered from the forum crash last year, when most of the active membership migrated to the SouthernWx upstart after which TW was rebooted under new management. All the prolific posters stayed at SW. And, activity at TW remains rather scant by comparison.

Wow, that's surprising.  Gotta think we're fortunate to have reliable infrastructure in place.

There have been times I've checked that forum and a day or two had passed without any posts at all. On their December thread, there have only been a handful of posts since last night on this current event. I'm sure by contrast SW is page after page of posts for the same time frame.
