Often, the southern states get the first snowfall of the year.  Happened in Shreveport, Birmingham, and even Atlanta several times before.

+PNA will ease to neutral by mid-month. Hoping for a major precipitation event. GFS is targeting something big around the 20th. Will probably be a rain event this far south but hopefully we can have a front pushing on the back side that drops some snow over the state.

0z Nam in its normal fashion- went from “all out” on the southern snow to less than impressive.

0z gfs was static- not impressive EXCEPT for 1-3 inches in the New Orleans area. Kinda cool to see snow down there.

I hope it snows in the Deep South. Would love to see it happen

I'm sure there are snow crazed peeps down there, as well, who would love to see snow in December.  Parts of Alabama are under a snow advisory for 1/2 to 1 inch of snow.  Good for them.   ::applause::

Ok now it's weather time in Tennessee. Pattern change is going to bring us the goods, time to find our first good snow before years end. Jan needs to score big, here's to a big storm to start showing up soon to give us at least something to keep up with before Christmas. I am all focused now, bring it on! ::fingerscrossed:: ::popcorn:: ::cold:: ::snowman::

Looks like the Smokies could see a significant snow with next Tuesday's system.

Living on the beach in Biloxi I always follow this site during the winter and have been able to see some nice snowfall events up in Nashville, where my son lives... hoping I can catch an inch of snow down here in Biloxi in the morning... save me an 8 hour drive to TN!

The 18Z looks really good down that way. Don't think I've ever seen anything like it.

Same here... areas to my immediate north could get several inches of wet snow... so even if I don’t get any, a short drive in my Jeep could give me my snow fix for December at least... hoping!

Pulling for the NAM.  It has the most interesting solution of bringing the snow shield as far west as all the TN counties bordering NC.  Still wouldn't be much, but just some snow falling from the sky would be a nice treat.

I remember long range models showing snow down to the Gulf a few weeks ago, and I laughed.  Not so funny now. . .

Pretty amazing to see snow about to fall that far south so early in winter.
