Are we done with the cold after that? Please?

Well I guess I will go with a B-. It was good as it gets at times and bad at times.
We ended up with 1 inch of sleet and  9.5 inches of snow. We has 11 days that we did not get above freezing. We had a solid snowpack for 8 days. That all sounds good until you add December and last half of February. Actually if the last 2 weeks of February had produced it would have been like the good old days.

Deep northwest flow bringing in some really cold air before the warming begins late week.  GFS even brings some upper teens into part of northeast TN Wednesday morning.  NAM not quite as cold, but still deep into the 20's.   I'm glad most of the trees are still dormant here.

Dang...another Nor'easter?   The upper east coast is certainly cashing in late this winter season.

So... I suppose with the GFS still showing some frozen stuff down at this latitude, we aren't done with winter yet?  ::shrug::

It will probably be gone next run but you can always count on 18z GFS to bring the goods. Has a bomb day 12 with heavy wet snow.

The GFS is way below normal on temps the last week of the month. Several freezes the last 10 days of run.  Especially for East Tennessee.

Glad the "hot" weather came to an end when it did, and only the Bradford's were fooled into blooming here.  Another week of that level of warmth, and it would be 2007 all over again.

Only thing that has bloomed here is wild cherry trees. There are a couple others starting to bud. The cold first half of February that NW Tn had helped.

I'm on the plateau and my peach buds are opening. Other fruit varieties aren't far behind. With several more cold shots to come before the cold air retreats once and for all, we're probably doomed as far as a fruit harvest goes this year.

Hopefully not, at least with the apple orchards around the area.  Most of the buds on the apple trees around here are still closed, though swelling and about to open.  But a closed bud gives enough protection to reduce damage.  Once the bud is open and frost occurs, it's game over.  Below 28 is when damage becomes most extensive.
