Good write up Toot.

I've been reading that it's possible this thing moves in quicker than the models are showing (and out faster). If that is the case then the chances of more frozen precip are greater. Some have also said that in that scenario there could be "fingers" of precip that streak out ahead of the main batch that could cause some good locally heavy snowfall.

As of right now, I'm not really sure what to expect. I mean when I look at the RPM and WRF I see what appears to be nothing but rain as it moves across TN, getting weaker on the northern fringes with each frame. Then I see things like this:



Which suggest that parts of north GA may not even transition all the way back to rain. Such a difficult event to forecast. I'm very curious to see how this plays out. Honestly I'll be shocked if I wake up to wintry precip Tuesday morning here in the valley. But stranger things have happened.

It should be noted that by moderate that I mean 2-4 inches. I probably should have used a different word than moderate there.

I'm personally thinking .5 to 1.5 will probably be about max for any part of East Tennessee.

The timing sort of stinks with it. We'll be clouding up during the absolute warmest part of the day, which will help hold temps up at night in an already iffy situation.

Someone can move this post if need be but I refuse to post on that other site you mention. Seems that if you are not in the click, you better not disagree or question them.

540 works best at elevations under 1500 feet.

The area where than snow is falling is 2500-3500 feet in elevation mostly. 546 is in play at those elevations.

Good point John...and I do agree with you...(540 works best at low elevations) but there are many spots recieving snow tonight and their elevation is below 1500. I was just pointing out you cant just look at 540 when elevation and such come into play.

The biggest problem I see is the dry air....you may very well be cold enough but by the time the virga works itself down to the surface then you may be too warm...its a touch and go situation here in TN yikes

toot, spc seems thee could be some thunderstorm activity down to the south, could this enhance our precip with extra lift here... or could that hurt us with more waa pushing up from the south... interesting indeed.. foothills has a good explanation on this system by the way.

Thats exactly how it is there I even told one of the admins over there in pm and they said if I dont like the way its run over there I have the right to leave. So I did somewhat lol.

But yea News 2 basically is calling this as a rain mixed with sleet and a few snow flakes changing to all rain during the night as warmer air makes its way it. I so hope they eat them words tomorrow afternoon when were looking at 1-3inches.

It really depends on how fast it takes warm air advection to do its dirty work. Places in southern TN COULD benefit from the deep moisture around the very convective activity to its south. Its a very complex system and im not sure any one forecaster or forecast office is completely correct. One model shows this....one model shows that. With that said...any unelevated snow accumulations are looking very light IMO.

I really like what the EURO is showing and honestly it has been the most consistant model so far. I think it is really including dynamic cooling. Plus the GFS and NAM start warmer for some reason. I mean if we are socked in with clouds tommrow there is no way tempretures are going to go up all that much. Plus with the wetbulbing and dynamic cooling I think things will be colder then expected.
