With no snow in the forecast before the end of meteorological winter, it looks like I'll close this one with around 9" total.  6" of heavy, wet snow fell on Christmas eve & morning. Power outages were widespread across Sevier Co. because of that one, and the bent pine and cedar trees in the yard are a constant reminder.  I had an inch earlier in December, and 2 inches later in the winter before the pattern flipped, and several dustings here and there in January.  Most snow I've seen in a winter since 2015.

This winter will finish with a B+ IMBY. Pretty satisfying after years of disappointment. I have no complaints. 3" in January followed by a week of ice, 1" sleet, and 3-4" of snow in February is the best winter I have witnessed since 2010-2011.

and some people question the ability to recover the arctic air mass for severe weather. Lol

There's a whole lot more to a severe weather setup than just the ability to reach 70 degrees a few days after a cold snap.

I will say it's mind-blowing what a difference a few days will make. It's hard to believe that just a few very short days ago, we were walking through ice and snow and bundling up. Now, you'd never know it with today's temperatures, other than a few residual piles of snow in shady spots.

OHX starting to pay attention to flooding concerns this weekend... 3-5" of rainfall over a few days, which they point out as "manageable." Some model runs are leaning towards figures more like 5-7", but OHX is undercutting that a bit for now. It looks like it's going to be soggy though, especially adding this on top of the snowmelt.

All it takes is a south wind.  I remember people saying the Gulf might not recover in 2011 for severe season...

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

One round of very wet weather is normal for any Spring where we live.  It's when you have one round followed by multiple others that a problem results.

I'm looking forward to a beautiful spring day today before we settle into the pattern of rain, rain, and then some more rain ::drowning:: for several days. Sunshine and warm weather is a welcome bonus this time of year and I hope everybody has a chance to get out and enjoy it a bit.  ::yum::
