  1. I suppose the SPC is banking on the morning activity plus a weak wedge stabilizing our region? The wedge looks like it erodes pretty fast to me so it's all up to the light to moderate rain/storms along the warm front to stick around and keep our cap on for the most part.
  2. Sunday definitely has my attention right now. I feel most of the time things trend away from big outbreaks as we get closer, but not always. Definitely has that look though. Frost risk behind it?
  3. Ugh I dread that for sure. Least favorite season of the year, pollen season.
  4. Such a sad situation there in Nashville. I looked at that storm on radar last night, just before going to bed, and it was just west of Nashville and starting to form a hook echo. But there was no warning yet so I thought it was just some broad upper level rotation from the high shear environment, so I went to bed and thought nothing of it. Shocking to wake up to that news this morning.
  5. Snowing lightly here now. Did get all the way down to 30.5 degrees, but in the last hour it went back up to 34.8. Looks like the rise in temps coincided with the winds picking up, so I guess the mixing is what caused it. Probably will end up with no accumulations again at this point. Edit: Went to sleep for a while and woke back up to check, I was wrong. It's still quite warm but it is still accumulating some in the yard and very well on elevated surfaces of course. Just it being night time is enough to overcome the warmth I suppose.
  6. Probably. Can't say whether it'll stick or not, higher elevations are always a safer bet. Also last few runs of HRRR have been drying things out a lot so who knows how much moisture actually makes it this way.
  7. Not a cloud in the sky here right now. Should radiate down nicely for at least an hour or so.
  8. Snowing good now on the north side of Tiger. 37 degrees though. Higher elevations may be accumulating though.
  9. Just a bit of snow stuck here this morning, not sure I'd even call it a dusting though lol. With the way the winds were here, I'm sure the Smokies area was in blizzard conditions most of the night.
  10. The regular occurrence of convective NW flow snows really makes the East Tennessee and Western NC Mtns a very appealing place to live one day lol
  11. I will admit to not having paid much attention to this, is it trending in any way right now? I wrote it off early thinking the trough would be centered too far east to allow much moisture at all into the system. Thought we'd be lucky to squeeze out a tenth of an inch liquid with Saturday.
  12. Also it was all 3 major models along with EPS support for the timeframe. Obviously long range rarely works out but that's still a solid storm signal at 8-10 days out.
  13. Little over a half inch here everywhere where the yard wasn't too wet. From what I've heard, Clayton itself still has no accumulations at all. Not quite what I was hoping for but it was at least nice to see it fall some.
  14. This isn't gonna amount to much here, probably closer to the original forecast from GSP, all the water on the ground is hindering things a bit. It's funny how things workout though. Middle of the one of the warmest winters on record, and in a 2 week and 6 day span I've now seen snow 3 times and have hit my annual average. Goes to show, cold winters don't guarantee snow and warm winters don't guarantee you won't get it.
  15. "Expecting the back edge to push into NW GA right around sunset and through the ATL metro area by 1 to 3am." This seems off based in radar. Isn't the back edge already pushing into NW GA?
  16. Got sent on an errand before the roads started getting bad, and just the small elevation drop from my area in Tiger to Clayton is making a huge difference. Nearing a qtr to a half inch in grassy areas at home and 33 degrees. Clayton is at 35 with nothing sticking at all.
  17. Temp dropped about a degree in the last 30 minutes. Starting to get a coating now in grassy areas.
  18. Yeah road temps are good, it'd just depend on if it's coming down so fast it can't melt fast enough. I drove a little pt cruiser through 5 inch snow packed roads last week and it handled it like a champ. Just take it slow and be safe!
  19. I know how that is. I had to drive in the last one we had and it was nerve wracking to say the least. How late you coming back?
  20. Probably from Pivotal weather. Ive seen it being spread around. Poor algorithm for mixing if guess.
  21. Wow, crazy. Timeframe obviously deserves watching.
  22. Yeah it's all puddles haha. And the surface temp isn't really dropping much. Got a feeling it'll be too late before it does. Just a frustrating rain storm with massive white rain drops lol
  23. All snow now, very heavy. Still too warm though, melting on contact. Elevated surfaces are a bit slushy just from the rates. Hoping this drives the temp down from the top down.
  24. Haha, it's been a very wet morning so I've been staying inside. If this thing will actually flip all the way over sometime I'll try to snap a few.
  25. Mainly sleet now with a few flakes starting to mix in. Sleet really starting to pile up on elevated surfaces.
