Every winter we are in the battleground zone, thanks to geography.

I too will take a suppression winter, because at least with a suppression winter we have the chance of seeing something wintry and not just torch all winter long.

one bad as the other ... suppression will lead to winter storms all going way south of us... leaving us dry as bone
Come on severe wx season...

That's fine, but as long as we're suppressed, it's gonna be cold.

Can't speak for the rest of the state, but in Northwest Tennessee we are pretty much always going to get a couple winter weather events.  Even last years winter we still got 2 small snow events that got us out of school (I am a teacher).  Most winters we get out for a week or maybe even two weeks for snow.  Granted some we may get out for just 3-4 days.  Guess NW TN is just in the sweet spot for Tennessee winter weather.  Glad thats where I live!

I was in Camden last November for that first snow event. Seems if you're not above 1000+' ft, you want to be north of 40 and west of the Tennessee River if you want a 3-4" lock each year.

The Plateau "used" to be the sweet spot, but it seems we have missed out on several events over the last couple of winters to our friends in the NW and upper NE portions of the state.

Living in the northern part of the Memphis metro has its benefits that make the Desoto Co. folks grumble, too.

it still baffles me how much it has changed.....90's and early 2000's was around an 8-10 inch average in my area along the 412 corridor . a lot of times it was right on the edge of the cold air and the heaviest moisture and we would get slammed....hasn't happened since 2010-11 seasons for me in lewis county

We have lucked out the last few years with at least 2 events. Might be ice, but I'll take it.

Yep, this is true. Tipton, Lauderdale, and Dyer usually cash in our area. While Desoto, and southern Shelby are in the screw zone. We are usually in the mixed precipitation zone, while just a few miles up Hwy 51 a raging blizzard is under way.

Jonesboro to Dyersburg has always been the sweet spot.

Since I'm a 90s baby, can I just experience one winter like 77-78 76-77?. I'm fine with it being once in a lifetime in Nashville.

76-77 was colder but 77-78 and 78-79 were snowier than 76-77 at least in Nashville and the KY stations. 76-77 was the coldest winter on record which is not likely to repeat in our current climate state.  I think it is possible for us to get a 2009-10, 2013-14, and 2014-15 type winter and maybe even a 1984-85 type in our current state if the cards fall right.
