The sun is shining brightly here in Cookeville this afternoon! Most of the snow is or has melted. I put the following phrase on my Facebook site. "Michael is advising all students and faculty to be prepared to go to school on Monday." Earlier this morning, while it was still cloudy, I thought they might have a chance to get an extra day off. Does not appear to be the case now. As you can tell from the picture, courtesy of the Cookeville EMA Webcam, above...the snow is gone!
We measured 1.5" locally in Cookeville. The are nearly 100 reports from CoCoRaHS observers across TN with at least 1.0" of new snow from overnight. Snow totals of 5" was reported in Mississippi, 5" from Alabama, and over in West Tennessee, they were several reports of a foot or more of snow on the ground today. Auburn, AL had a tornado yesterday and had a nice snow event today..2.5 inches of accumulation there. Pictures of Auburn are here.
One of my blog readers from southern Middle Tennessee challenged me that he would get more than my area. Hey Adam, you're right!! You sure did! 7 or 8 inches at his place beats the 1.5" I got at my place.
Another friend from Memphis recorded 5.8" at his house...Erik runs MemphisWeather...I enjoy his knowledge and his website.
Yet another friend, Eddie from Jackson, TN runs the Jackson Weather site. He recorded the highest one-day snow total EVER for Jackson, TN! 12.5" His list of snowfall amounts can be found here!
