Flurries Today and Cold Tonight

SNOW OVERNIGHT: Lake-effect snow from the Great Lakes (you read that right!) has caused additional accumulations of around 1" for many of us and isolated amounts of nearly 2" for some overnight. We had right at another inch at my home to give us a total of 2". To read more about how lake-effect snow made it's way to Tennessee, Davis Nolan writes about it at NashvilleWX.

SATURDAY FORECAST: Flurries continue today under a mostly cloudy sky. No additional accumulations are expected. Highs should be around 22-23° this afternoon. Coldest night of the year, so far, tonight with lows in the singles digits across all of Middle Tennessee (from 4-7° in Putnam County) especially if the clouds do move out. The rest of the week is located below in the latest, local forecast.

Weather History for This Date
Pink snow fell in Colorado according to Bill Murray, the WXHISTORIAN on Twitter, back in 1932. Apparently, it was a mixture of dust from the Painted Desert. *Interesting*

Looks like our mid-day temp was about 6-8 degrees colder than at the South Pole. Though to be fair they ARE in the middle of summer...

Should we be on the lookout for penguins?
