Nothing beats a good Gulf low with an arctic air mass following behind it, then a clipper system that lays down a couple inches of new snow a day or two later. We used to have way more of those setups than we do now.

Yeah that would be great assuming I have a week off work, a bottle of Xanax, and a couple liters of vodka to get me past the model mayhem in the days leading up to the event.  Having an actual winter storm forecasted a few days out is even more stressful than dealing with snow drought.  That said when it finally happens its euphoric!  ::rofl::

Kids reading, don't be like uncle bugalou - say no to bad habits like meteorology.

I know this has been a frustrating winter, and as a snow lover myself, I share the frustration... but can some of y'all please take the complaints and wishful thinking to the rant thread? I visit this thread for forecasting and I am frankly tired of sifting through pages of doom-and-gloom posts, as if it will never snow down here again. Mild weather like this during Tennessee winters is not out of the ordinary, as anyone who has lived here longer than 20 years would know by now. We had a pretty frigid November, so the jet was bound to deliver mild air to our region at some point.

There's roughly 60% of winter remaining- a percentage that is fairly flexible- and a pattern change is certainly on the horizon. Some of TN's biggest snowstorms occurred in March.

P.S. Think the mid 1990s-2010s is the only period of warm winters with little snowfall here? Check out how the winters of the 1920s-mid 1950s were.

Weeks 3-4 look very "winter-like" as far as temps go.  (h/t @RyanMaue)

I think we need a thread for complaining about winter complainers.

Waking up this morning to torrential rain and a little bit of thunder. Crazy storm for mid January.

From this weekend through next week, at least it looks like near to below average temps. Perhaps, some days not getting above 40. So, thatís a start.

Thereís enough model consistency to expect a colder pattern. Now, whether itís something that will produce or not- well, weíll see.

true...at this point I would take some "average" winter temps, even though average doesn't produce snow here, at least it would be a start :)
