I'd also like to order a nice I-40 special. That way the whole state gets snow or some wintry precipitation. The last one I recall was 1/29/2010.

Hey, looks like some severe could be on the horizon along with winter weather threats this month. We could have some exciting weather coming up.

I much prefer a tn/al border special that way north of the tn border is in the cold air and everybody gets SNOW, i do not like ugly winter weather like sleet and ice at all lol. But yes luckily enough jan 2010 is the biggest snowfall i have had in lewis county at 9 inches

I'd kill for a week like that of the Blizzard of '51.
My grandparents used to tell me about that one. It was brutal, there are some great pictures from it. My grandparents showed me a few of them when I was younger. ::popcorn:: ::snowman::

I would LOVE 1963/64 new years snow, widespread 10-16 inches across the mid state :)
My parents talk about that one, it was their senior year of high school and around 10 inches fell here. They said that was the most fun they had in snow as teenagers. It was a small town then, and many were going out and driving in it on New Years! LOL!

It is an amazing accumulation map to look at pretty much the entire midstate saw at least 7 inches and west of 65 saw common 10-16 inches and on a holiday! How fun would that be :)

A bit unusual to see the north/south orientation of the snow accums. Was not good for far west and northeast TN, but the Nashville - Knoxville corridor and especially southern middle TN did fabulous. Would be a gcbama special!

yep it is a fantastic snowmap for the midstate! I have always dreamed of Cold air being in place and a gulf low tracking east north east from Jackson MS towards Chattanooga so you get snow on the north side of the low and the heavy returns on the backside as it passes as well :)

Well long term cold shot was just that, long term fantasy it seems.  The golden triangle area of MO is going to be above freezing for the next 15 days at least.

At least we saw a few snow flakes fly the first day of Dec. And honestly if it isn’t going to snow I would rather it be sunny and warm. My 8 yr old and her friends can play outside and not drive us crazy. Lol!  :)

I am with you there, no point in being cold if it is not going to snow in my opinion :)

East Tn folks...
Monday’s system is currently right where we want it. Each model update gets slightly more promising. We’re still ~72 hours out, give or take 6 hours. 12z Euro threw us a bone. Need NW trend on NAM and GFS. And maybe a slightly better organized Low to pull down enough cold air. Ifff, that little piece of energy dropping SE can meet up with that Low in time, we might could eek out a little something. Even the Valley.

The longer I see the Central USA Ridge entrench itself as we go into the winter the more concerned I get about 1950s or 2012 style drought and not severe or winter weather for the Feb-Jun 2021 period.
