any town called Peter sink deserves to be that cold ... lol

Name aside- the feature is quite fascinating. Itís a natural high elevation sinkhole with a legit weather station in the Utah Wasatch. Natural drainage causes temps to drop 30-40 degrees as it naturally slopes downward .

The NAM (yes, it is that time of year again) says that many locations in the northern half of the state along with the Plateau and the Mtns will see its first flakes of the winter season tonight. This unseasonably strong blast of cold air ushered in by the front should be able to squeeze some frozen precipitation out of the relatively moist air for some of our residents.

Those living above 2000 ft/600m might witness some accumulation.  ::snowman::

And the NAM held true! Great to see how many Tennesseans had flakes flying today.

I didn't see any in Franklin, but I was working indoors the whole day. Did anyone notice snowflakes or mixed precipitation in the Mid-State?

Wintry Precip was reported as far south as Huntsville, Alabama. Not bad for October 31st! Reminds me of 2014.

In spite of a scorching 2010s decade for all locations in Tennessee, the only month that registers as having below average temperatures for the past 9 years (2010-2018) is the month of November.

You may recall the extreme cold of November 2014, in which Tennessee recorded one of its three coldest Novembers since the late 19th century. November of 2013 and 2018 were unusually cold as well.

According to NOAA, this November seems to continue the trend. While all of the other months of the year averaged over the ten year period of 2010-2019 will finish above average, November will likely finish below average. I find this statistic very interesting.

Looks like weíll be away from the torch for a while- going to feel more like the latter part of November for the foreseeable stretch it appears.

Our digital thermometer next to the house here in Lascassas registered a low of 28F this morning, while another out in the open about 100 feet away registered 24F.   ::cold::

Doesn't look like it got as cold as forecast here, but I have no way to verify that.  It was still cloudy when I got up and left for work this morning, it was around 35.

Had 28 this morning. The airport didnít quite get a freeze, so officially the growing season continues. If the GFS is correct, it will be short lived.

It looks like we continue our trend of cold Novembers especially now that we look to have ridging out west.  That will allow for the bitter cold air that has invaded out west last month to move into our area.

Interesting to note that after a record warm and dry September, Memphis ended up a tad below normal for October (despite 3 days in the upper 90ís) and also recorded its wettest on record at just shy of 13 inches of rain.

Proof that if you donít like the weather in Tennessee, stick around a little longer.

This past October was a cross between 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2018.  I guess that is why some people are using 2007-08 and 2008-09 as analogs for the upcoming winter.

Well, my forecast from the NWS shows a slight chance of rain and *snow* showers for Sunday night and Monday.
