Winter Weather / Re: January 15th - 16th Snow
« Last post by Michael on Yesterday at 11:47:43 PM »
Not to mention- the orientation of it isn’t what would happen. All the local examples we’ve seen of lake effect is the Arctic air blowing down from the north or north-northwest, which means the “fetch” pulls the flurry streamers southward. It has to do with wind direction, which wouldn’t be from SW to NE to cause that. ;)

Good point. I don’t know why I wasn’t thinking that. Just the looks of everything got me a little surprised lol.

It was happening in West Tn earlier. But, this Cherokee Lake deal was from overall Synoptic Forcing and a mid level boundary that just happened to align perfectly with the Lake, giving the appearance of Lake Effect snow.

Don't you need about 60 miles of fetch to get lake effect?  Do we have any lakes around here that can cause that?

Ok. So, apparently it not Lake Effect off Cherokee Lake. I reached out to NWS Morristown and they buzz killed me lol. It’s overall Synoptic Forcing and a mid level boundary that just happens to be aligned with the lake.. #FalseAlarm I got over excited lol.

We made it to 0 and now with the cloud cover we are back up to 7.
You are downwind of a fairly nice fetch off the River and Reelfoot....

This has been an enjoyable weather system for a big chunk of Tennessee from the Mississippi to the mountains.  MRX says it's mostly over, but the short range models say not quite.  Either way, it's been a good day.  Started sunny and pleasant, and I worked a bit outside as I watched the clouds thicken and lower.  Nothing quite like watching a snow system move in, and I'm grateful it was during the day so I could take it all in. 

Hope everyone here east to west also enjoyed our winter event.  I know it wasn't the "storm of the century," but a couple of inches of snow in the south is always something special.
