Sunday Morning Snowfall

We were greeted with a beautiful snowfall on Sunday morning.

Moderate snow showers moved through our area rapidly leaving up to an inch of accumulation in many places.

Temperatures are frigid as at 8:20,
we're reporting 20 degrees here at my home,
16 degrees (with a wind chill of 6) at Bondecroft School in Sparta, TN.
Crossville has 19 and Mt. Juliet, TN to our west has 16
.....daytime temperatures should moderate into the 20's, however, lows tonight could drop to the single digits for some locations.

We are watching possible clipper-type systems setting up to run through our area over the next several days which could produce more snow....they will keep our temperatures VERY cold.

Nice fact in Weather History on this date:

On February 4, 1998...
Jamestown sets a station record with 18" of snow.
Monterey sets its own single-day snowfall record, with 12", as well as Livingston, with 9".

Have a great morning....we're headed to church in just a bit. :)

Hey, Mike! I have been watching your comments on the nashvillewx blog! I am glad that we have some folks keeping an eye on the weather here. Sometimes we get forgotten in the Nashville mix... I live in Livingston, so it's nice to get the weather from somewhere besides Crossville. Ours can be so different from theirs! Thanks!

Hi Jennifer:

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, it can be quite different here than in Nashville. That is why I started this. Stop by often!
Thanks for visiting from Overton County.....
