It's not just the Midwest.  Snowfall records have been crushed in the Northeast this winter as well.

If guess the moral of this story is ... if you want it to snow where you live on a regular basis, then you need to live in a region where the climate is conducive for that to happen.  Unfortunately, Tennessee just 'aint it.

We'll get our share of snow.  We just have to wait longer for it.

I'd like to see the Euro surface maps between 96 & 120.  Looks like it's getting close to a decent track for our neck of the woods but I can't tell what's going on between those hours.

18Z NAM looks interesting on day4...although it can be unreliable at this point. It is certainly trying to activate the souther stram jet over a cold air mass with precip showing up in central and southern arkansas. 12z NAM was dry as a bone thus a major change on this run.

I love that Accu just skips over WTN altogether on this map

I wouldn't trust this anymore than I can throw it, which isn't far.  There is no way that this particular low will suddenly escape from the throes of the evil Southeast Ridge and ride the mountains northeast.  Nope, no way in Hades.  Remember, this is coming from Hackuweather, a land far away where everything is model driven and can virtually change with each model run.  Still not gonna hold my breath.

3-3 12Z Euro is a step in the right direction. It shows a Miller A with the low shifted more to the west compared to the 0Z run. In fact it now shows some snow in TN I believe. On the other hand the 12Z GFS shows the low much farther east than on the Euro with an unfavorable track.

If only something like this would happen the week ending 3/14.. I'll be close to center hill lake chiling at a lake house... would be PERFECT to wake up to snow on the shore..
