Not much for east either, but I'd take it.

It's been a while since we've had any clown maps to look at. If I can't be pleased, might as well be teased.

This is the best there is at the moment…10 day maps…

I'd really like to close the books on this one. In fact, I have since January.  ::bagoverhead::

There is some chatter about the stratospheric warming event that could disrupt the PV and send the cold air south. I'm not saying it's likely, but it's worth thinking about. The GFS, Euro, and CMC hint at a Greenland block in early March.

Told y'all it wasn't totally over yet!  ::bagoverhead::

I like everybody in here, always have. I respect the real weather people here more than a lot of the local mets. The knowledge in here from those people is fantastic!!!

I never have claimed to have superior knowledge or anything like that, I just have some basic knowledge and know a bit more than the general public does and I just like to talk about it with you all. I'd like to think we were all friends :)
Some posts are at times a little "much" but I think everybody is here for the same thing? We like to talk weather :)

You are a great addition to this forum. Please don't think otherwise.

As for Icestorm's post, I recall more when more meteorologists and experienced hobbyists posted on weather forums, including ours. I have noticed that change across a few forums and not just ours. I speculate the weenie factor is hard to deal with which dissuades professionals from sharing their opinions. The "Weather Twitter" community (as toxic as it can be sometimes) is the best publicly available option for quick, reliable information from professionals.

There are a few more restrictive weather forums that professionals will frequent. Sites like stormtrack do their best to eliminate the weenie factor from their forum. I have also met several professional meteorologists in Discord chats that are by invitation only. I suspect many professionals see that as a better option.

Sites like ours serve a great purpose. The snow weenie stuff can be tiring to sift through but think about the amount of people who are constantly learning new things from others. We all started somewhere... in fact, how many posts have I clogged up the forum with over the years with snow weenie banter and bickering with Bruce and Matthew? Despite all that, I learned many new things about meteorology that I would not have if I didn't frequent the forum. It was here where I learned how to interpret a Skew-T, where I first learned what CAPE and the DGZ meant, where I learned the difference between convection-allowing and global models, where I learned about upper air patterns that set the stage to make a winter either great or terrible.... and the list goes on and on! I learned all of that here.

One never forgets the first time they learn how to wetbulb on their own. All kidding aside, I have learned a lot here and had some really fun late nights back in the day when the chat was rocking. There are still plenty of really good knowledgeable posters here who will take the time to explain the basics to newbies (like me too many years ago, geez we are getting old).

We are like a family here, you have your crazy uncle Bruce, your fun uncle Dyer, your sweet aunt who always brings fire (really good) desserts Beth, your odd brother in law who is still into wrasslin Eric, your grandpa that likes to tell you about the good ol days Snowman, etc. Yeah we bicker from time to time, but in the end we mostly have fun.

I was a senior in high school when I joined back in January of 2008.  Now I am a mostly responsible adult teaching pre-teens and teens. 

Not only are there some great memories but we have left behind a detailed 17-year history of weather along with a discussion of past weather events dating all the way back to the 1800s.  We have created our own library of events that have occurred in Tennessee and adjacent areas.

If you want to know about the Super Tuesday 2008 Tornado Outbreak or the January 29-30th 2010 Winter Storm then this is a legit place to do your research as that event occurred.

Updated Winter Tier List (This is largely NW TN/TN/KY Border/NW Middle TN centric) but I did try and take more of at least West/Middle TN into account.

Gotta go with a C here for 22-23. White Christmas and 0 degrees has got to count for something. Not to mention-33 wind chill the day after the front.

I would agree. That was a fun few days for winter lovers and to get it during Christmas was a bonus. Snow stayed on the ground during Christmas for a few days, cant beat that. I think C or D is about right because that was basically our winter.

The freak cold blast before Christmas was interesting for sure. But, it was destructive for a lot of folks with busted pipes and the like... and loss of landscaping and some bushes and trees. It's looking more likely that I'm going to have to dig up and replace some dead bushes and even our holly tree this spring. Experts said wait till spring, but those things seem dead and brittle now... fingernail test on the stems don't seem hopeful.

I'll give Chattanooga's winter a D- overall. But the Christmas cold blast was kinda interesting, and we had a nice half inch snow day after Christmas and it covered the ground. I've been through colder and completely snowless Winters...

Edit: the official measurement for Dec 26th was .1 inches.. but there was definitely a little more in parts of town, like Red Bank.

Winter is going out with a heck of a fight this weekend. Might dip to 19-20 degrees in areas Saturday and Sunday night. I bet we struggle to get above 40 Sunday. Overall this hasn’t been a bad winter we had the mega cold event and a white Christmas and the 3 day sleet/ice event end of January.  Was a great duck season which is how I grade my winters. I’d give it a B just because of that.
