I don't see much improvement on the horizon.

As Bruce has stated before, we continue to kick the can down the road just like last year and our chance at a winter event will soon be next winter. I have never seen two years back to back with both January and February being this bad if you want to track a winter event. If this happens again next year it may be the norm going forward

It's definitely rare to have back to back years this bad, but not unheard of. There are examples in Nashville history as far back as 1908/1909 which featured a trace of snowfall both years.

My Facebook "Memories" is filled with posts from the winter storm 10 years ago.  The fact that I'm being reminded of that amidst our most recent snow slump is depressing.

Luckily in Johnson City we had the 10 inch snow last December and a couple 2 inch snows very early this year. We usually have several events of 2 inches or more but that has not happened the last 2 winters. Our average low in January is 24 but we have only been below 30 a handful of times the whole month

yep me too bruceÖ.9 here in lewis county that storm.

I have totally given up hope for this winter, if a surprise happens I will be happy:), but I am done hoping for or looking for something to track...I will check on models every few days from now on but it is no longer a daily priority, it will be same old story I think this winter with mostly above average temps and a few days of cold rains , I am sure there will be at least one potential winter event somewhere down the road , but I am not gonna wishcast it to happen..

Trees are already starting to bud and spring will be here fast :)

Still plenty of time left but the clock starts really ticking as we enter February. Trying to think even handed here on winter, as bad as Dec and January were there is still enough time for us to get a couple of good snows climo wise. It has been disheartening at times this winter when long range has thrown us big head fakes that we were going colder. Living here my entire 55 years I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly over the years. I still think and hold out hope that the mid-state area in general is going to score a winter system or 2 before spring finally breaks. Of course it is very possible we get shut out and I can understand one thinking that. But I am going to stick with us getting at least 1 maybe even 2 events in February of at least a couple of inches at minimum. But I will admit, if we were somehow granted just one snow for the rest of the year but it would be at least 6 inch snowfall and stay around at least 3 full days I would take it. LOL! ::popcorn:: ::cold:: ::snowman::

The last two Novembers have pretty much been the extent of our winter weather here on the west side of the state.  If next November is cold with a winter event then we're screwed.  Have had three Novembers with cold and a winter events in the past six years and all have lead into terrible winters.

Maybe just maybe this above normal temps will carry into spring and let us have a nice spring and not a dang cold gray spring.  It has been a couple of years since we have had a good solid spring, about like fall now days also.

If I was going to put my chips down at this point I'd split my bet between absolutely nothing and a disastrous spring break storm in March.  We haven't had one of those in this century and I think we're overdue.
