Been a dark, cold rainy day stuck in the mid 40's on the east side of the state.  Spring rebounds over the weekend with 60's and even a 73 on Sunday.  Warm front for the win.  I can handle a rainy day if it's warm.

KMEM looks to end Feb 10F BN which may not have happened since the 60's or 70's. Need to take a look.

Pretty amazing. What is the mean temp for Memphis in February? 40-45 F?

I think KBNA's mean for Feb (based on '81-'10) is about 42 degrees F.

Current average at KMEM is 34.5 which is the 4th coldest February as of today. Probably will lose another 0.2-0.4 to end up around 35. That will come close to tying for 5th with 1978 and 1902. 6th coldest is 36 in 2015.

Thanks Curt for gathering this data. It's quite possible this could be the coldest February dating back over a half century or longer in Memphis. It will at least be the coldest February since 1978, which is impressive.

Do you know which years recorded the the top 4 coldest February's?

As of today the average has risen to 35.0 so it’s now in 6th place for coldest Feb. Depending on today and tomorrow it might go to number 7, but most likely will still rival 2015 which was the coldest last 15 days of February on record. So we did live through history indeed as those 10 days below freezing themselves- were the coldest on record.

Will we see more of these types of outbreaks? Def possible as the PDO has clearly gone negative which favors northern cold during winter which can spill out into our area. That positive AMO- once it flips- will be a similar period to the 1960’s- 1980’s as far as negative PDO and AMO. Those years were generally much colder in the winter time. It’s quite easy to track.

This is wild in the same state. Johnson City I am sure was above average for the month while Memphis was 10 degrees below average. Crazy patterns to say the least

Man-made state boundaries mean little in the world of weather.

Fun fact- the northeast tip of the state is closer to the Canadian border than it is to Memphis.

From snow and ice to heavy downpours and thunder with mixed lightning. It is amazing what a week can do.

Just like the MO/Arkansas border in the Missouri Boothill has the same latitude as Nashville.

That sounds about right, since the TN state line goes pretty well straight due west, and the MO boot hill dips down and sits right across the river from NW TN.

But, the idea that one spot in TN is closer to Canada than the other end of the state is what I think a lot of people would find fairly surprising.
