Not this area- but, there’s a significant tornado on the ground southeast of Shreveport. Louisiana resulting in a tornado emergency in that area at this time.

Most recent NAM run actually increasing potential for snow in the central valley of east TN, from Knoxville north and east.  Nothing huge by any means, but a slushy inch is huge for April in Tennessee.

This is getting more interesting by the hour. HRRR will be in range for our area soon.

Edit: Well... Possibly not. Latest runs favor dry air stealing the frozen side of this system. Looks like flakes now.

I don't know about snow but I can confirm the arrival of the Arctic Express. Down to 44 with 20 mph north wind. Holy shot it feels like January.

I now can confirm sleet and 33 degrees with a wind chill of 19. Radar and the latest models do not agree at the moment.
Nice glaze of ice and sleet on everything except ground.

They reissued the Special Weather Statement that they cancelled. It is now 31 degrees here.

...Light wintry mix across northern portions of the Mid South...

A light wintry mix is expected across areas along and north of the
Interstate 40 corridor this morning. The greatest potential for
light snow and sleet accumulations will be across locations along
and north of a Jonesboro, Arkansas, to Dyersburg, Tennessee, to
Camden, Tennessee, line. In these areas, accumulations of snow and
sleet will range from a dusting up to one half inch. In areas
where temperatures have fallen to freezing or below, some icy
spots may develop, especially on bridges and overpasses. Use
caution if you plan travel across these locations.

Further south along the Interstate 40 corridor, temperatures
should remain just above freezing and any snow or sleet that falls
should not accumulate on roadways.

We had over an inch of rain during the night.  As for temperatures, forecast calls for a low around 28 by Sunday morning.  Usually below 28 is when damage starts to occur to any new, tender foliage on plants.  Most oaks are safe--buds are still closed.  Hickories have open buds and some new leaves emerging.  Close call for them.  I'll have to cover the Japanese maple tonight.   

Snow looks less likely today in the central valley, but still a raw, cold, drizzly day with temperatures dropping into the upper 30's by afternoon.  If it isn't going to snow, Winter '17-'18 needs to take a bow and leave the stage, please!

This is a first for me that I can remember and I have been around a long time. 30 degrees and steady light snow falling . I have never seen this setup in April. What a wonderful Spring morning

Dyer, I remember sometime around maybe 2004 or so it snowed on April 10th here, we actually received about 2 inches just on the grass. I remember because we had about 4 yards to mow that day and I remember calling my partner and saying are you ready to go mow and we got a good laugh. It was gone by early afternoon. But it snowed hard that night, big flakes.

I have seen snow in April but this is a January setup. Snow getting harder by the minute. Everything getting white.

We got a little snow this morning too! It is having a hard time making its way over here due to the dry air, but some is surviving

Glad some Tennesseans are reaping some white from this.  Light rain and 42 here. 

I did get the grill cleaned and ready.  If snow falls, I'm firing it up!   ::rofl::

It was a hard blow this morning to our town hearing that the missing little boy’s father confessed to killing him.  Our town people have been searching night and day in very cold weather.  I just do not understand it! 😡

That is horrible to hear. I hope for the rest of his life it's 33f and raining.

Temp and dewpoint both stuck at 41 currently with a very heavy drizzle falling along with some  dense fog.  If it was still St. Patty's Day, I would think I drank too much and woke up in Ireland.

(Except for the fact they are actually several degrees warmer right now).

Interesting (discussion from OHX):

Quote
Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Nashville TN
336 PM CDT Sat Apr 7 2018

.DISCUSSION...

This was not just an atypical day...it was record setting. Well,
almost. Afternoon temps have been stuck in the 30s (!!) which
would be enough to smash the record low max temps for the
day. However, temps were in the 40s (above these "cold records")
just after midnight, thus no records were set during daylight
hours today. Nonetheless, temps in the 30s with wind chills under
30 at mid afternoon on an April 7th is remarkable. And the
occasional reports of flurries across the south and east counties
at mid afternoon were special, too.
