Prepare for power outages before the storm beings. With an estimated arrival time of around 9:00 a.m., there is still a little time to prepare. The snow could be a wet, heavy snow and that could lead to power outages across the region. Make sure you have another heat source if your power goes out. Single digit low temps tonight could prove dangerous if you lose your heat.

How to Accurately Measure Snow
Those of you with Meteorologist Mark rulers are all set! 🙂
On This Day in Wx History
1880 – Seattle, Washington, was in the midst of their worst snowstorm of record. Hundreds of barns were destroyed, and transportation was brought to a standstill, as the storm left the city buried under four feet of snow.
1988 – It was a bad day for chickens. Heavy snow in Arkansas, with totals ranging up to 16 inches at Heber Springs, claimed the lives of 3.5 million chickens, and snow and ice up to three inches thick claimed the lives of another 1.75 million chickens in north central Texas. Up to 18 inches of snow blanketed Oklahoma, with Oklahoma City reporting a record 12 inches of snow in 24 hours.

Class is FREE. If you would like to be added to the email list for class notifications, just send me an email to email@example.com.
An adults class will also be offered this month at TCAT to discuss the recent severe weather. That class was scheduled for Jan 4 but it is being rescheduled. Stay tuned for that new date! The class is free but any donation goes toward my monthly class for kids at TCAT.

Mark, do you have the 2021 total precipitation for Cumberland County yet?
It looks like we ended up with 56.21 at the Crossville Memorial Airport (an official reporting site). The other site at the UT Experiment Station (it’s on Hwy 70 going toward Mayland) recorded 61.57. That’s quite a difference and one I hadn’t noticed until you asked.
