Not sure about middle Tennessee but Johnson City did last year in early December and we got 10 or 11 inches of snow.  We usually get one or more a winter up our way but sometimes they donít pan out. Being at 1,800 feet helps and 45 minutes from all the ski slopes in western North Carolina. The ski slopes at 4,000 to 5,500 feet usually get several a winter and sometimes we get nothing so the elevation is a huge factor when you have marginal Cold air like this year. Sugar Mountain has 21 inches year to date and we have around 4

When was the last time middle TN had a Winter Storm Warning?

For the Nashville area, I believe at the latest would have been January 22, 2016 and the most recent, January 15-16, 2018, but don't quote me on that.

I've seen the map on this by weather service office in the last week or so on Twitter. I think they are getting it through the Iowa State website.

I think the Tri Cities got all snow and Knoxville just mostly rain during the event last year in December. It was calling for 4-6 inches and a couple of places in the Tri Cities got 13 inches so it definitely was on the high end of snowfall. Boone, North Carolina, at 3,500 feet got 24 inches so it was definitely an elevation type event. Cold air was marginal. We were at 31 with heavy snow at 1,800 feet and Knoxville was at 35 and rain at 800 feet

I may be looking at it wrong, but it appears 12z Euro is hinting at a potential Miller B setup around Feb 1-2? GFS is a little more robust and further NW. This southern ďsystemĒ has been showing up for around the Feb 1 timeframe on GFS off and on for a few days now. Itís shown up on Euro a couple times or so now. Since Euro is showing it too, itís peaking my interest. It may end up a nothing burger, but it gives us something to keep our eye on. Who knows?

miller b is when the storm transfer to a storm usually off se coast. Usually good for the far se part of country . Miller a is much better for us

Us East Tn folks can score off both Miller A and B. But, yes, A is better. B just depends on when/where the transfer of energy occurs. Sometimes it screws us East Tn folk and blows up in VA.
