So Where's the Snow? Watch Out! PDF Print

So where’s the snow?  It still may get us as the day goes along, with still a batch of rain in eastern Tennessee, the tail end of which is a large area of snow. But the angle the storm took coming from southwest toward the northeast, let the Appalachian Mountains do its bit to split the storm into an eastern half and western half while dragging relatively warm air with it—air that kept temps above freezing in many High Country areas overnight.  And at this point, the rain portion of the storm is still taking that tack. But the snow element, pushed along by much colder air, is still pushing toward us with enough gusto that we could see snow—and still a good amount of snow—as the day goes along.  So what does that mean for schools?  It means school officials have another tough call to make to try to get in a school day with the possibility of having to make a quick decision depending on the timing of the snow element of the storm.
