To enjoy things in life that are good, you first must endure things that suck!

We need a good laugh since there is nothing regarding winter storms the last few winters

That seemed like a miracle storm that happened really fast. It was 50 at 5 on Christmas Eve where I live in Johnson City and at 9:30 we had 6.5 inches of snow. Awesome to be at the right place. I cannot remember the last time it was snow the entire event. Several hours of rain usually before the snow. I would love to see cold air in place and a strong gulf low hit the state with a big snow. Elevation and the Appalachian Mountains does provide better chances where I live. It just seems January and February has been a bust for chances at a winter storm the last several years. We got 10 inches of snow in Johnson City in 2018 the second week of December.  I guess we are just a to far south if you are a snow lover and love a good winter storm on a consistent basis

Had a memory pop up on FB today from 2013...which event was this? Confirmed tornadoes in Northern MS, then warnings for Middle overnight into early morning. I'd post the radar grabs but they are extremely compressed after upload via Tapatalk.

Pretty decent sleet shower passing through. Temp is 43, so not accumulating.

That was January 29-30th 2013 which is one of the largest tornado outbreaks in Middle TN history as far as number of tornadoes is concerned. 

It was a very effective QLCS event.

A band of moderate snow falling here in Sevier CO.  Probably won't last long, since it's a narrow ribbon of moisture.  Only got to 35 today.

 Neat line showing up at the TN/NC border. Looks like they
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly

.LONG TERM...(Sunday Night through Saturday)...

Key Messages:

1. Significant snows in the E TN mountains and higher elevations of
SW VA Sun night through Tues morning with snow showers/flurries
producing light accumulations in the Plateau, N Valley, and NE TN.

Expect the dry slot to fill in with scattered showers Sun
night as the first mid level vort lobe and associated PVA drops into
the area, with forecast soundings showing saturation deepening all
the way to 700 mb by 12Z Mon. H85 temps will initially be too warm
for snow, but as the vort lobe passes during the night, H85 temps
will cool to -6 to -8 C. Rain will change to snow showers in the E
TN and SW VA mountains first, then down to the valley floor toward
sunrise Mon. The boundary layer flow behind this disturbance will
veer more northwesterly Mon, and that`s when we will transition to
more of a pure NW flow regime. H85 temps of -7 to -9 C Mon morning
will further cool to around -10 C Mon afternoon through early Tues
as another mid level vort lobe drops through Mon afternoon followed
by another Mon night. The flow eventually veers NNW behind these
disturbances Mon night/early Tues. Continuous deep synoptic moisture
to nearly 700 mb through Mon night (well within the DGZ), favorable
NW/NNW upslope flow, 15-30 kts in the boundary layer, strong
connection to the Great Lakes, steep low-level lapse
rates/instability, and SLR`s in the higher terrain reaching at least
15:1 by Mon night all support a major and prolonged NWFS event. The
highest accumulations could exceed a foot across the Smoky Mountain
peaks by midday Tues where squalls persist. Farther up the mountain
chain in NE TN and in the higher peaks of SW VA, significant
accumulations will occur as well with some places exceeding 5
inches. Across the Plateau and N Valley/lower elevations of NE TN,
snow showers and flurries will occur due to the strong instability,
especially Mon afternoon/evening. Amounts will generally be light in
these areas, but any heavier bursts could put down a quick inch or
two. Will hold off on winter weather headlines due to the ongoing
periods 2 and 3 hazards, but warnings/advisories will likely be
needed.

There may be a wittle bit of energy showing up that could give people along and east of US Highway 41 a wittle bit of wittle snow accumulation.

Last day of January, and who knows what the forecast is.  I think I might end up with an inch or two of snow at the end of this event.  But this is the crazy "zone" forecast I see on the NWS website.  Talk about public confusion...

Quote
Monday Patchy freezing fog in the morning. Patchy fog in the morning and early afternoon. Rain showers likely in the morning. Snow showers through the day. Rain showers in the afternoon. Snow accumulation up to 4 inches. Near steady temperature in the lower 30s. West winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation 80 percent.
Monday Night Cloudy. Snow showers likely until early morning, then a chance of snow showers late. Snow accumulation up to 4 inches. Total snow accumulation up to 9 inches. Lows in the mid 20s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 70 percent.

One would think reading this from an official NWS web site that we are about to get buried here in eastern Sevier Co.  Who knows.  We just lived through 2020, so anything is possible.
