Curt pointed this out, but pretty unusual to have 3 decaying tropical systems track over W/SW TN in one season. Ceiling seems much lower at the moment than w/ Harvey though.

Snow up high

I for one am very disappointed in ALL of the models for this hurricane. They say it might come to TN, but watch it end up in Virginia or some where else.   ::blowtorch::

Per MRX:

Quote
Easterly low level winds north of the circulation will increase
sharply around midday today - up to 55 kts at 850 mb at 00Z -
creating a downslope flow that will likely create a precip shadow
for the northern and central TN Valley into the evening. The main
change from previous forecasts will be to lower QPF amounts in
that area. Southern Valley locations are still expected to have
storm total amounts of 2-2.5 inches. With a duration of 12 hours
or more, river levels and soil moisture should be able to handle
this amount without widespread flooding problems, although
localized heavier amounts are possible and will need to be
monitored. The Wind Advisory will not be changed, although the
northern and central Valley, SW VA, and northern Plateau will
likely be on the low end of Advisory criteria (26 mph sustained or
40 mph gust). Dry air wrapping around the circulation and a
continued downslope flow on Tuesday will result in lowering rain
chances and much lighter precip for all areas.

MRX has upped my winds to 30-35 sustained gusts to 50. That's awfully close to full blown (haha) tropical storm status. TS warnings now out in the North GA border counties.

It will be interesting to see just how much of Irma's moisture can make it over the Southern Appalachians into the foothills of eastern Tennessee.  Right now, they are effectively blocking the moisture, but the main surge is still coming up from the south.  The wind is already picking up, gusting to near 20 mph.  The sky is very dark and heavy.  If it was January, I'd say it's a snow sky.  With the stiff wind and temperatures only in the mid-50's--it certainly feels wintry outside.

I'll vouch for wintry. Just got to my job site in Ducktown. It's 51, raining, and breezy. Latest GFS ups the rain a bit for this area and decreases the wind somewhat. 925 levels are below 50 mph now, yesterday they were pushing 60.

Perfect day for a big pot of



Current GFS shows nearly an inch up here now, but I have my doubts with so much downsloping taking place.  Guess we'll see.  Your area should see the lion's share of rain in East TN.

I come here for updates, and y'all are just making me hungry.  ::yum::

Overcast and light winds here in Brentwood, TN right now, but expect winds to pick up this afternoon. Should get gusty here tonight.

Tropical systems passing this area are always an interesting novelty.

Wind continues to increase here in the foothills.  Probably gusting well over 20 mph at times.

Rain also making it over the crest of the Smokies now.  The big surge of moisture from Irma winning over the downsloping winds.
