Come on severe wx season...

Heavy frost in open areas this morning, as we touched 32 near sunrise.

Zero complaints here about the next two days.  Sunshine, blue skies, and temperatures between 65-70.  Going to spend every minute I can outside come tomorrow.

12Z GFS show little real warmth in our future, and even another cold shot with possible near freezing temperatures around the 28th.  Nuts.  I don't recall a spring like this since moving here in 2003.  Every spring has it cold spells, but this spring the whole pattern has been cold and well below normal with an occasional warm day thrown in--the complete opposite of most springs around here.

Euro weeklies 46 day average 2m temp anomaly.




Cool start to spring and maybe even summer. I assume at some point in June we will go haywire for heat. In the meantime, I plan on enjoying a prolonged period of 60ís and 70ís for highs. I need to move to Montana anyways.

To have two relatively cool summers back to back would be pretty amazing for this area, especially nowadays.  The one thing that would keep this summer tilted toward cooler is the continuation of the soaking rains.  It's difficult to have a real, lasting heat wave with saturated soils. Hot, stagnant high pressure and very wet ground repel each other like the same poles on a magnet.

I'm sure most living there are glad about that bit of news.

Ok...you know it's slow weather-wise when a marginal risk makes BIG headlines.   ;D

If there are still no reported tornadoes in Oklahoma by April 26th, 2018 will top 1962 as the latest start to tornado season there.

It was one of those days that, if you could, it would be bottled up and saved.   Absolutely beautiful here, and feeling blessed to have been around to enjoy it as much as I did.

Looks like all of the globals now have a precip max very near the Chattanooga area of 3-5 inches. A flood watch may have been warranted here. We just had 2-3Ē of rain last weekend. Also looks like itís going to get quite windy tonight.

Winter 2010-11 Snowfall: 15.5 in. :)

Thanks to a southeast wind and the usual rain shadow, areas around here east of Knoxville will be lucky to get near an inch. Just .18" overnight.

Jesus will this patter break anytime soon? Seems like for about a month now the pattern has looked to change "in about two weeks" but never does. If this is going to be spring lets just move on to 90 degrees + and summer

Looks like the ULL is stalled. Radar has not changed all morning. Pivoting right over west Tn.
