Euro is consistently an I-44 snow event from OKC to STL. We are on the ďwarmĒ side for the entire precip

Of course it's early, but it's fun to look at. Kind of like them fantasy tornadoes your always chasing. We are headed toward winter and winter talk, who knows somebody may get to see some snow flakes fly before the end of the month. It has happened before just not often, still fun to talk about for us that like snow. ::popcorn:: ::snowman:: ::snowman:: ::snowman::

I've always heard about a storm that dumped several inches of snow on Nashville during the first few days of November in the 1970s. So, it can happen, although rare.

The Great Appalachians Storm of 1950 dumped heavy snow on much of the state in 1950, but that was obviously later in the month.

There hasn't been many November snows, but they have happened. I have seen snow on the ground at Thanksgiving a few times. And in 1995 it snowed on Nov 9th which is my birthday, about a inch fell and stuck but most melted by the next morning. But I measured a solid inch on my deck out back that night. I remember it well I was watching UT and Memphis St play on TV. Manning and company got upset that night, and I was saying well at least it's snowing on my birthday. I did get to see UT beat ND in a great comeback in south bend on my birthday so I have had split success there. On the November snows front, in 1966 on November 2nd the mid state was hit by a rare snowstorm in which Nashville tied the 1950 Nov.24th record for it's greatest 1 day snowfall ever for November as they recorded 7.2 inches. On Nov 3rd Cookeville received 15.2 inches of snow smashing their November record for snow in November. I found that by looking up calendar of significant weather events in Tennessee. Also on Nov 22nd in 1950 Nashville received 5 inches of snow.  ::guitar:: ::snowman::

Shouldn't snow talk chances for next week be going in the Fall thread? We're still 3 weeks away from even meteorological winter.
