If the sort of snowpack being depicted builds just north of the Ohio river, even a zonal flow will be cold for anyone on the southeast. That’s not going to melt quickly and will help maintain any cold fronts that pass through.
Snow lover who moved to a place where it never snows and its tornado season from November til June.

The PV is now working on another attempt at a major warming event next week. We just had a minor event but it was weak enough to connect to the troposphere. Let’s see if we can get a major warming event. That will almost ensure more of a weak PV for another few weeks in the heart of winter.

Extreme NW leading the state  for most days without more than one inch of snowfall. North Carolina is a big ouch as well.

The Lower Ohio Valley (cities like Cincinnati, Evansville, and Louisville), may have gotten the occasional 1-inch snow here and there, but are probably doing the worst of anyone in the country as far as total snowfall compared to average.

Evansville, IN has had multiple winters since 2011, where it failed to record 2 inches or more of snow for a season and currently only has 1 inch of snow for the season.  This is an area that used to average about 15 inches of snow.

That map is accurate overall but most of that area got 1-2 inches. I work in Union City. I did not measure but they easily had an inch.

3 years ago today Montgomery County received 5 inches of snow. 2 years ago today we were under tornado watches. Just proves that this time of year weather around here is like a box of chocolates you never can tell what your going to get.

You must have been living in the edge up there next to Lake Co.

We actually had a little over 3. It went down as you went north. Lake and Obion county did have the least. It was at least an inch in most places.

aside from that one 8-9 day window in Jan ( and it was great) this will go down as yet another boring winter season around here with just one week or so of real winter.

I mean is it really though? We're in the South, Everyone outside of the mountains Tennessee latitude south has a less than 10inch snow avg going back to 1870 or so. Close to the border with Georgia, Ala, and Miss, we are 5 inches or less on avg. Over avg seasons can come in bunches, and subpar seasons can last for half decades. It's a crapshoot.. We actually hit for pretty much ALL of Tennessee this year. It was a good Winter, all and all. Still. It can snow in March and April. Always open to surprises.
"When an infinitely small variation of the present state will alter only by an infinitely small quantity the state at some future time, the condition of the system, whether at rest or in motion, is said to be stable but when an infinitely small variation in the present state may bring about a finite difference in the state of the system in a finite time, the system is said to be unstable."

I am not only talking about snowfall....it's also the temps. Having an entire month of winter be a torch is a winter failure imo lol. Had only one legit system to track, although it was fantastic :).
You are right we do win some and lose some, but as a whole this one has been a failure outside of one week in Jan imo

For the most part, I disagree. While most of December/February was mild (December at least had some seasonal stretches), you have to look at the big picture, one that includes a top 15 snow event for BNA and the most consecutive 1"+ snow days dating back to January 1978. Obviously, I can't speak for everyone, but if someone told me I'd finish the year with 8.5-9" for DJF, I'd take that and run. The surprise ULL snow from 2/12/24 was a nice bonus and provided a memorable hour of heavy rates and one clasp of thundersnow. A solid memory for those on the west side.

Now, I'm not saying we should give this winter an A+...but I'd sure consider a B+ for above average seasonal snowfall, the ULL snow event, and getting to work remote for a full week due to being snowed in. While February has been a bust relative to what we had hoped, I wouldn't downplay this winter on account of luck nor broad-brush the entire winter as such simply for wanting more of it (Note: I'm not saying you're doing that; however, the tenor of your perspective is flirting with the idea...hence, why I'm calling it out). Frankly, to say any aspect of this winter has been a "failure" is partisan conjecture. Compared to what our friends in extreme east TN/Carolinas have gone through in recent years, we should counting our blessings for the times we've scored this decade. Just my $0.02.
