I wanted to give a quick update on this evening’s snow potential. The band of snow slowed a lot overnight. This has caused higher snowfall totals than expected across West TN. In addition, the front met up with some jet energy, further increasing the snow. Models indicated the front will increase in speed as it approaches the plateau, keeping snow fall totals around 2-3 inches, with the possibility now of isolated higher amounts. Remember when I said that there was very little moisture with this system? Well, it only takes a little bit of moisture to make some snow with these arctic fronts.
This is a very dry snow, so it’s not the best for snowball making. Never the less, please careful on the roads as they will become hazardous. Temps will stay well below freezing through Wednesday, so side roads will likely stay slick for some time.
Meanwhile, I’m here on the Space Coast, where we should be 71 degrees tomorrow. It’s been a long day! I woke up at 3:00 a.m. to get to Nashville in time for my early flight. It’s been a long day of travel but I am finally settled into my hotel room. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds! Media day begins at 9:30. I’ll be keeping good notes and letting you all know about everything I see, learn, and do!
