Would be nice.  It can be on the repeat cycle clear into mid-March as far as I'm concerned, then Spring arrive on schedule on the 20th.
Alright - funny you should say that.  This will be the 50th anniversary of the scheduled protest of the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike....will history repeat itself for the 50th anniversary?...

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

Wow, 16 inches of snow in Memphis on March 22nd no less.  Sounds like your all's version of a March "superstorm."

Euro weeklies- winter take a break until early February. It develops the same pattern again around the 10th. These patterns usually repeat.

I agree the pattern will repeat, don't know if it will take 3 weeks to get it back though, like the weeklies show.

OHX has showers "and possibly a thunderstorm" for Nashville Sunday night. Weird to think about given the frozen tundra that we are currently.

I still remember a trip home to Murfreesboro in 2003, I think it was in March, where we had severe thunderstorms in the morning and then heavy snow falling and then immediately melting after dark that night.  The radical swings in a single day are always fun to experience.

Actually, the all-time record single-storm snowfall in Memphis is 18.5 inches and, I believe that occurred on March 18th & 19th but that was waaaaayyyyy back in the late 1800s.

Don't forget to add Florida and Houston in that!

As old as we are, I'm glad I wasn't around for that one.  ;D

So based on the models, I am assuming it may be quiet around here for a few weeks.  Might be time for a little break!

Warmup just in time for the weekend. Great time to get outside and hit the trails.

In the 8 day period from January 8th to the 16th, East Tennessee witnessed a moderate icing event, 70 degree high temperatures, and a light to moderate snowfall event across the entire region followed by temperatures near zero. Now that is some interesting weather.

Here's a summary of what happened in Knoxville:

Jan 8: AM Ice, causing multiple roadway accidents
Jan 10: High of 70
Jan 12: Cold front drops temperatures 30 degrees over six hours, leaving behind a dusting of snow after heavy rain
Jan 15: 2 inches of snow, single digit lows overnight
