We picked up some slushy accumulation around MTSU, mostly on mulch and the higher stadium seating.  Easily the most vigorous snowfall I have seen in two years; it was beautiful to watch.

Winter is trying to recover for its failing grade by showing up during finals week with a couple of half-finished homework assignments and a doctor's note:

"Please excuse winter this year, the AO was really really positive, and she just couldn't make the commute from  Alaska."

Today was a fascinating case of an elevation event. We had between 0.5" and 1" in southwestern Williamson county, which is situated around 900'. Temps stagnated around 33 and 34 degrees, allowing for consistent, wet snowfall. It was still snowing moderately when I left for work at 8am. By the time I arrived in Franklin past 8:30- and descended 300 feet- it was 36 degrees with drizzle, and there was not even a trace of snowfall in that part of the county. That was just 20 miles' difference.

Wonder if there was any snow at Radnor. That's a 750 ft difference from its highest peak to the Cumberland.

Right now in Johnson City at 1,800 feet we have light snow and 34 with everything melting as soon as it falls. Roan Mountain at 6,000 feet has snow and 19 degrees. Every flake up there is accumulating. Elevation is amazing the difference it makes and it really sticks out up this way with some mountains over 6,000 feet

yet again looks like far east Tennessee residents are the only real beneficiaries of these clipper type systems good for them I guess :)

Very heavy radar returns. Big flakes where I am. Up near Greeneville to Kingsport area. Solid white ground and some roads too. Drive 5 miles northwest and all green grass and sunny.

The system tonight around midnight to 6 a m may total up to 2 inches in parts of Johnson City. These are the type systems we will get 3-4 inches in January most winters. It is a northwest flow event for us and it creates an upslope event which wrings out not precipitation than other parts of the state receives. Guess we will see what happens tonight

The last clipper last night went north through Eastern Kentucky and Southwest Virginia with its main snow bands, imagine that. We got a good dusting with things looking pretty white in Johnson City but the 1-3 inches is north of us. This was the last chance I see for snow this year so bring on summer. Looks like we may need a boat this week statewide.

My home in far southwestern Williamson County received roughly 2.9" of snow in February.

Feb. 6-7: 1.9"
Feb. 20:  0.4"
Feb. 27:  0.6"

Beggars can't be choosers in lacklustre winters like these. Before last month, I had no measurable snowfall since November.

I think I was in the sweet spot in Middle Tennessee.
