Actually the closest thing to the 70s we have had here was January 2018. Problem was it only lasted 10 days. Bruce was begging for it to quit.
I was just saying we have had some good winters since. And there is no factual basis for someone to say them types of winters can't happen again. He also said early 80's were the worst of the 80's and 83 was cold but dry, the 2 biggest winters in the 80's for my region was 85 and 88. We were well into double digit snowfall here in 2010 but I agree there were breaks in it that the 70's and 85 did not have. And you are right 2018 for a week was like the 70's were for a month. Also this morning we had a 5-10 minute burst of fine snow and sleet falling. I was headed home and was in town and folks in woodlawn called me and said it was snowing. As I got closer to woodlawn I ran into it. Didn't last long but it was coming down fast but it was very fine for the most part seen a few slightly bigger flakes now and then but they were still pretty small, it was snow on Halloween none the less. First time since 93. ::popcorn:: ::cold:: ::snowman::

All I know is the average winter used to be 7-10 inches of snow across the mid state with usually 2 or 3 decent events per winter.....this decade I only had 3 + inches for an entire winter season twice that i remember, 2010 and 2015. it has been a horribly below average decade

Larry Cosgrove is going for normal to occasionally mild from Texas to our region with the best potential being back-loaded.  The best cold is Upper Midwest to Interior Northeast and he thinks -NAO, -AO, and -EPO.   

He has 1995-96, 2003-04, 2007-08, and 2008-09 as analogs.

Those winters were neither great nor bad. Heck, after the past few winters, I will jump for joy if we receive average snowfall.

2003 was great for Rutherford County. That was the year that it snowed ~6" from daylight to around lunch time. We wound up with 9" on my parents farm in Smyrna by the time that storm was over. People were stuck on the interstate most of the day.

I remember watching it snow from the tiny window in my sophomore English class and telling the teacher, "Bet they'll call school early." She laughed. Hard. Needless to say, in about 30 minutes, she was apologizing to me after the principal came over the TV and said we were dismissing at 11.

I remember that surprise snow in '03.  Took me 4 hours to get home to Cookeville from Lebanon.  I just barely made it too - they ended up shutting the interstate down best I remember.

Yeah, but that was a rogue upper-level low that deepened once it rolled across the MS River and surprised everyone, meteorologists included.  From what I remember, there was some bouts of cold but nothing to really write home about.  That was 15-16 years ago, so who knows if I remember anything correctly.

See, I didn't know what that was. I didn't have any winter meteorological knowledge at all then. Severe took up too much of my interests lol.

It was definitely a surprise.  As best as I can remember (which isn't very good anymore) - there was talk of a few flurries/showers but nothing much was supposed to come of it.  By lunch time it was becoming clear that they "missed" this one.

I do believe that was the last "bust" that was supposed to be nothing that turned out to be a big storm in our area

Loving that GFS long range. Record lows 10 days out. Its been looking very cold in that range for a few days now. Gets us down to the low teens.

I like seeing that persistent -EPO signal.  It looks like it should hold into the winter.  Usually, with an -EPO someone gets cold (last year in was the Upper Midwest into the Interior Northwest and in the 2013-2015 period it was us) and the PNA is probably going to determine who.

I will probably stick with my winter outlook as it does look like the SE Ridge will get in the way at times, but the active polar stream and colder air looks to have a bit more of a bite versus last year.

Euro hinting at some possible flakage next week. Both the main and ensemble have flurries flying. Maybe a "flurry dusting" as Bill Hall used to say.
