Somewhat off topic. I was at Charlotte airport yesterday evening, in line to board back to Nashville when I overheard another passenger talking about winter storm jackson.  I just had to roll my eyes at them and put my earpods back in.  How is this a thing? Winter storms have no "eye" and each storm is different.  SMH  ::shrug:: ::bangingheadintowall::

Today is a good example that short range models can have it wrong.  The HRRR showed the line of showers totally dissipating before reaching east TN.  However, it's holding its own and making progress into the valley.  NAM got it right, though.

.DISCUSSION...Still some forecast questions as we go through the
day. Line of showers and storms across middle TN is showing
weakening trends via IR SAT and lightning activity. HRRR and RAP
both continue to show this activity falling apart as it enters our
area with only a few light and scattered shower around. However,
the latest 12z NAM holds the line together longer
and gives us
better chances of seeing more widespread rain during the
afternoon hours.

Some decent wind moving through here ATM. You can feel the warmth of the day when it's still and the coolness of the ground when it blows.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly Ė raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

Man, I really hate freezing rain. 4 hours to drive from Manchester NH, to Bennington VT in the crap. I feel like Nashville has followed me North.

We had a lot of wind, but little rain with the departing system.  Less than .10".

Feb reload still looking good. The thaw has been nice, but I'm ready to get back to winter. Let's close this one out in style.  ::snowman::

The GFS is bringing it today. Another identical storm right behind this one. Back to Back for the win.

Drought is becoming an issue over a growing part of the U.S.

http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/

Even showing up now in parts of TN as abnormal dryness. 

http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/CurrentMap/StateDroughtMonitor.aspx?TN

The Central US Ridging of last summer/fall and the dry NW flow at times this winter has really put the central USA in a precipitation hole.  We really need to capitalize on some rain chances, especially areas to our west while the thaw is in progress.

GFS gives us 2 big winter events in next 14 days. But, itís the GFS. Take with a grain of salt based on this yearís performance. Maybe itíll get both of these right. Hopefully.

If I see one 5+ inch snowfall before winter goes bye-bye, I'll consider it a success.  Two, and it's epic.

It's a potential Friday event. I'm ok with that.  ::bacon::
