Good question.  Maybe because it's a "one-day record."  Perhaps the 50" occurred over the whole storm duration from Friday to Sunday.   ::pondering::

Some of the states surprised me... such as in parts of the Northeast and Upper Midwest, such as MA, MI, OH, WI, ND, etc... records "only" 2 foot something... when the record for TN is around the same ballpark.

Hmm, maybe we've got ourselves a bit of fake news here.   ;)

Perhaps we need an official fact checker on board.   ::coffee::

Oh- I don’t have any reason to doubt those figures per se. It’s just interesting is all. Other states have some 3 and 4 foot records and beyond. TN may not have the “average” snowfall as some of those places, but at least our “records” can compete with some of the best of them.

Remember where the moisture source is. Since strong low pressure systems require a progressive pattern, there is a ceiling for how much precip can fall before the storm moves out. I can recall getting over 4” of rain from a gulf low here before. In theory that could produce 40+” of snow if the cold air is in the right place. Lake effect snow and western US ULL’s don’t abide by this principle, but I suspect 40-50” is only possible in the east with extreme orographic enhancement since the cold continental airmass required for snow will tend to eat up some of the moisture. The farther north you go, the less moisture is available.

Freezing Fog advisory here this morning. Talk about a Jack Frost. It looks like it snowed.

Third morning with it here this year. That feels like a lot. Last Friday it was bad enough to cause a few wrecks on area bridges. MRX seems really shy about freezing fog advisories for some reason. I can’t remember ever being under one despite its frequent occurrence here.

Pretty cool- seeing a little rime on the trees. That doesn’t happen often here.

The storm that kicks of Meteorological Winter (next weekend) may have some warm-sector features that may impact our area and especially areas to our south.   

We will have to watch this particular storm and see its exact track, strength, and ultimately the moisture return available for it.

Saw Chris Bailey's winter outlook for Kentucky this morning.  Calling for a much colder than normal winter (especially January & February), and above normal snowfall.  He also calls for several intense Arctic outbreaks, including one that will bring a -50 temperature drop in a 24 hour period.

First few days of December look torchy. This may be interesting for you all in West Tennessee.
