The AO looks to be going in the tank to close out this month.  The NAO may even follow suit.  After a brief warmup after Thanksgiving, we may start Meteorological Winter on the cold side.

California is expected to have above average precipitation in the 8-14 day outlook.  That will be much needed.

I just learned yesterday that I have relatives who lost everything in Paradise, CA... one of my mom's cousins (who I don't know and not sure I've met). The family out there was afraid they had died escaping the fire, but they did make it to safety, with apparently only the contents of their car the only thing they have.


That's really rough, but glad they are alive and well.  It's nightmarish out there this fire season, as all the rain last winter only made things worse this year.  The increased undergrowth has become more fuel for the fires as it dried out during the summer months.

Wind has really picked up here in the last hour with some gusts near 30mph, and temps have dropped to 36 from an earlier 42.  However, at the same time, the precipitation has shown a marked decrease.  Drier air could be moving in as the system swings by to our north.  There may be some phantom flurries later, but I'll need the security light on to see 'em.

New TN Weather terminology for this winter thanks to bugalou--phantom flurries.   ;D

Just east of DuBois, PA...radar is showing returns of 50 dbz, and given reports in the area it is all snow on that region.

With rates that high there has to be some sleet mixed in that, right??? Could you imagine 50 dbz of pure snow!? Highest Iíve personally experienced has been ~35 dbz, and that is considered heavy snow.

Agree. The HRRR is being conservative with precipitation. The NAM has been more accurate during this event. I'm confident we will see flakes flying in Knoxville tonight. It has been misting all day here.

Radar returns are increasing again in the eastern TN valley as the low drifts by to our north.  Temps also dropping.  We may be able to squeak out some frozen precip over this way before it ends.
