We were screwed per usual. Pretty much the entire state received a decent amount. It got to me this time and I'm pretty pissed about it.

I can imagine that'd be pretty crappy to see everyone to the west overperforming and thinking you're about to get yours, then poof! Gone. I was very surprised to wake up and see y'all didn't get much at all. I figured y'all were about to get dumped on for once.

The power of that March sun angle is impressive. Had 3 to 4" here and it pretty much melted it all off yesterday with temps in the 20's. Roads were good to go by lunch, even back roads that weren't completely shaded.

That is the best part of March snows.  It snows, it’s pretty, and you don’t get tired of it as it goes away fast. 😎

Ended up with 3.5 here in woodlawn. General 3-4 across the county. Ended up with just a tick over 10 inches for the year. Not near the best or worst, but a decent solid year here. Across the state did well, and only proves it can still snow in Tennessee and winter can still deliver here. Maybe we are slowly moving back to a era of better winters.  ::popcorn:: ::snowman::

This winter and 2015-16, I feel the same about.  Pretty good snow after a record warm December, but I can't really hold a winter to high regard when you blowtorch December and especially around Christmas to New Year like we did this past winter. It knocks it down to a C or a B- for me. 

Really the opposite of last winter that had that really cold Feb that skewed the winter colder than what it was.  This winter had that really warm Dec that skewed the winter warmer than what it was.

That used to be nearer the average back a while ago. A ten inch winter total was to me considered quite normal...however we have had some years in the past 15 years that were just TRASH and people forgot what we used to always get...used to be every season you would get about two wwa events and at least on wsw, thats pretty much what happened past two years for me and i am very pleased with the 16 i got this year....still have yet to have a double digit snow here in my lifetime , the 9 inches with that storm in January was oh so close :D

Thinking back… would have to look at the specific atmospheric pattern but at least in general sense this event had a lot of familiarity with the January 1997 system…. Quick moving Arctic front with post frontal heavy precip that ended up heavier than forecast within banding and higher than expected ratios.

Of course the main difference being the airmass wasn’t as cold with it being March and snow cover quickly melted with sun angle. Still a fun event and for the Memphis area after just missing the heavier snows earlier in the winter and the mess that was the ice storm… I would say this salvaged it!

This was a really fun event IMO. I understand why it was tricky in terms of no WSW for the Memphis area due to some modeling inc the Euro- even the HRR- which had scant precip in the metro. When I saw the RAP match the RGEM- and predict the heaviest banding through Memphis and up 40 starting with its early afternoon runs, I starting thinking it would over-perform. When I saw what it was doing in central AR, I was a little surprised MEG didn't go WSW but it was real time at that point anyways.

The NWS reported 0.46 in of QPF and 5.5 inches of snow, slightly better than a 10:1 ratio. (Temps in the upper 20's did wonders to avoid heavy wet snow). However, KMEM had 0.29in QPF and reported only 2.0 inches of snow. Assuming the same ratios, either someone at the airport doesn't know how to measure snow correctly, or they're measuring at the wrong place. I would think it was a standard practice.

There wasn’t much to report for this event from my current backyard, but I did grab a shot of our new house in Apison in the snow:


This location is close to 1000’ in elevation and is in the far eastern part of Hamilton county. It should do considerably better in winter events than my current house in the city limits.
Winter 2009-10 Snowfall: 11.5 in. :)
Winter 2010-11 Snowfall: 15.5 in. :)
Winter 2011-12: Trace
Winter 2012-2013: 0.25 in.
Winter 2013-14: 10.6 (9.5 on 2/12)
Winter 2014-2015: 10.25 in.
Winters 2015-2019: basically nothing
Winter 2019-2020:
2/8/20: 4.25
