Christmas Eve Evening Wx Update

Numerous snow showers are showing up on radar this evening. These are moving eastward and will affect the plateau as we go through the rest of the evening. I have a dusting of snow at my house and many of us should end up with 0.5 – 1.0 inch of snow by Christmas morning. A few isolated locations could still pick up a bit more than that.

Be careful if you’re out and about, as some slick spots could develop on area roads.

Temps will fall into the teens tonight. Make sure your outside fur babies are ready for that, as well as any outdoor plumbing.

Christmas is looking bitter cold. We will likely stay in the teens most of the day, possibly hitting 20 degrees at our warmest. That is cold!

It’s also worth mentioning that with this latest round of precip, Crossville has officially recorded the wettest year on record, with 75.30 inches of rain thus far. We will likely see even more added to that total before the calendar turns to 2021. Interestingly, the last time we broke a record for annual rainfall was just two years ago. In 2018 we recorded 74.88 inches.

You all have a wonderful evening and a wonderful Christmas Eve!

Pictured below is the current radar, showing numerous snow showers across the Midstate. I highlighted the borders of Cumberland and Fentress Counties, for reference.

The snow scale remains unchanged, with one inch or less expected across much of the plateau.
