Temperatures this morning as I write this are quite cold across Tennessee. Here in Cookeville, we're at 14° at 6:15 a.m. Wind chill values have been as low as 5°
Across Tennessee at 6 am
Crossville 13 with a wind chill of 0
Dickson 14 with a wind chill of 6
Portland 15 with a wind chill of -1
Columbia 17 with a wind chill of 6
Nashville 18 with a wind chill of 7 (flurries flying)
Knoxville 19 with a wind chill of 8
Tri-Cities 16 with a wind chill of 3
Looks like those who voted YES, ACCUMULATING (with 24% of the vote) in the SNOW POLL will be the winners as we received enough snow to whiten the ground in places here on the Cumberland Plateau region of Middle Tennessee. Of course, I guess the "ONLY ON THE PLATEAU" (at 25%) folks could lay some claim to victory, too! Some in Tennessee received only flurries...those votes got 35% of the total on our first SNOW POLL.
Our latest, local forecast is calling for chances of snow this morning with highst only reaching the middle 20's today...tonight, another cold one (even colder than this morning) with lows around 11°....we do see moderating temperatures in the 7-day forecast...but are watching the computer models closely for what could be ANOTHER blast of cold air around the middle part of January.
Ran across an interesting weather post...Top 10 Strangest Natural Disasters in History...take a look at it...
That's all for now..if I get some good pictures, I'll post them!
