Elevation indeed makes a difference. I can see snow up on the 1100í ďpeakĒ above Brentwood in the woods at the top of the hill, while itís just wet here in the lower elevation... still lightly snowing.

We're down to 35 and have had steady snow since about 10:45. Roads are clear but most grassy areas are getting covered. The question will be how long we get to enjoy the show.

There is close to two inches on the ridge tops in southern Marshall county. Some roads over the ridges have quite a bit of slush, although this should be improving as the snow ends and temps edge up. Wife reports almost an inch at the house just shy of 1000 feet. Lewisburg has a coating while Cornersville has close to an inch.

Saw about 7 flakes this morning, congrats to all that got to see snow fly and the ones that have got snow that stuck to ground. It was fun watching the models react over the long range to the system and how things come together in the end. It just couldn't quite gets it act together for something bigger, but was fun to keep up with. Temps and moisture issues. As dull as this year has been you have to track what it gives you. Funny seeing how some of the folks talking about the system today weren't having any of it last week. But we all have done it. I am not really even that disappointed it didn't snow I guess it's because the season is coming to a end and in about 2-3 weeks I will be full on spring. But maybe it's the calm knowing my snow chances aren't over yet. Getting ready to gather my snow chips looking for the right storm to put them on in the next 10 days. I still haven't given up on one measurable snow, it probably won't happen but I am in it until for at least 2 more weeks snow or no snow. After that I won't have much time to be on here. Sorry so long, congrats to the folks that love the snowfall. ::popcorn::  ::fingerscrossed:: ::snowman::

Snowing pretty heavily in Cleveland. Very limited accumulation though. Just some slush on the elevated surfaces. Shame it wasn't just a hair colder. I bet the area mountaintops have a nice accumulation though.

Should roads in our area (Williamson/Maury/Davidson counties be ok to travel in the morning?  Work for a school so some busses are out early early.  (And donít even think Iím thinking of a snow day.  I know better! 😂😃

I donít think there will be any problems to speak of in the morning... maybe an isolated slick spot here or there on a bridge, but thatís about it.

I got my crunchy cold leftover snow fix this morning. That's been missing for a couple of years. Was beautiful with the snow on the hilltops this morning. Yesterday was interesting with the variability of accums even across the relatively minor elevation differences here. There was close to two inches on the ridge top at 1160', right at an inch at the house at about 980, and a half inch or less down in town at 700'. I did a lot of driving yesterday and there was a big difference once you got up to about 1050 or 1100 feet.

I live at 1,800 in Johnson City and we ended up with around 2 inches even though it snowed probably 5 inches. At 1,500 feet in Johnson City there was only 1 inch. Elevation dependent snow accumulations were in full force yesterday and it was really fascinating to be driving and see the difference that 300 feet made

This definitely seemed like an elevation driven event. At my location, 2000ft, we ended up with around four inches of snow. Places ten minutes away and 100-200ft lower like Monterey and Crossville, ended up with around two inches. The entire event here was snow, but I think those places had brief periods of rain before it switched over, which also probably didn't help.

:( I haven't had snow like that here in years.

But it snowed here the entire day in lewis county, from 6 am until 12, just wouldn't stick much at all.  That's what stinks, snowed for 6 hours and no accum

I feel you, even here on the Plateau in Cumberland County, this was probably our biggest snow in the last three or four years. We got around three inches a couple of weeks ago though. This winter has been very warm but has managed to snow almost anytime it got cold enough at least lol.
