2:30 p.m.update: Advance word on NWS forecast

It appears that our Winter Storm Watch will become a Winter Weather Advisory for the new forecast package.

Expect snow accumulation forecasts somewhere between 1 and 3 inches.

Frankly, if we got 3 inches out of this I'd be thrilled.

Also, I keep forgetting to mention how cold it will be Sunday and particularly Sunday night -- if we have snow cover, lows could very well make it down into the single digits Monday morning.

Finally, there are positive indications from radars down in the Gulf Coast where precipitation is being reported north of where models said it would fall. This is the kind of trend we're looking for.

I've seen the radr and there is moisture heading NE, not far from the South Western section of Tennessee as I speak. This is good especially if the the cold front and moisture end up here at the same time.

From what I see on the radar at this moment, I just don't see enough precip for anything big. By big I mean more than 3' of snow.

I'm thrilled to see our overall winter pattern changing, ie. colder temps and storm patterns. Even if we only get small amounts of snow, sooner or later we stand a better chance of getting the "big one." Thanks, Skip, for the good work and keeping all of us updated!
