Freezing fog now.. strange. Don't really recall a 3 plus inch snow in Chattanooga followed by a freezing fog event like this. Beautiful though.

I estimated about 2-2.5” on my car at Winterplace when I left around 10:30 PM. It was just flurrying when I left with some freezing fog. Most of that snow fell in about a 60-minute period of pure rakeage. Certainly the heaviest snow I’ve seen since at least February 2015 (not saying much considering I lived in FL most of the time since). The skiing conditions were insanely good when it was pouring. I guess that’s what it’s like to ski in Colorado. The black diamonds became so much easier!!!

I thought my face might freeze off when I was skiing down in the heavy snow, haha. It certainly stings!

I’ll maybe post some photos tomorrow if I remember to.

Here's a condensed summary of the snow reports everyone on this forum (& americanwx) posted earlier today. If you would like to report what you saw in your backyard, please don't hesitate to add to this extensive list, it's very slim pickings for snowfall reports in NW Georgia & extreme NE Alabama right now from what I can tell.

Even if FFC doesn't release a public information statement or total map for GA later, this should be a nice starting point to make a big multi-state map once CoCoRaHS reports trickle in.

I'm hoping to make this look pretty sometime tomorrow, any new report(s) will help immensely.

We are in Ooltewah, TN ( suburb just NE of the Chattanooga airport). Officially the airport reported 2.8". We had 4" of super wet, heavy snow at hour home in Ooltewah. Snow ended around 10:30 a.m. and by 3p.m. the temp had risen to 40* and most of the snow had melted.

So my inch doesn’t even show up? Not sure they captured the scope of this event accurately
Yeah it doesn’t capture the maximum accumulation and has relatively coarse resolution. Given the invaluable input everyone here has provided, the scouring thru social media, & the addition of cocorahs reports, I will have updated, final maps for NC, SC, & GA later today as well as a regional analysis of this event.

I want to also thank you for your invaluable posts and analysis.

As with any event, there are outliers with accumulations (either high or low) - this was complicated by borderline temps yesterday and lots of melting (at least for my area just north of I-85/south of DT Greenville). Still, it was a beautiful event - mod to heavy snowfall for our area during midday - rare for SC. Additionally, I consider this a "perfect" snowfall with accumulations only on grass and not roads (I despise driving on snow/ice).

wow! lived in Chattanooga for about 2 years, miss it immensely (lived on Missionary Ridge) - the Upstate of SC is nice (esp DT Greenville and being close to Western NC mountains) but Chattanooga's scenery/backdrop is unmatched in the Southeast, with the exception of Asheville
the NWS there (MRX) is super conservative and probably forecasted flurries!
most of our snow here is gone as well...

Thanks for the kind words, definitely helps keep me going when you're staring at a computer screen for hours on end.

Damn Southeast Ridge got banned? I've been gone for too long. Shows how crappy this winter has been and how having a job instead of being in college has stollen all my time lol.

Has CoreyTucker made his way back yet this winter?

Remember that guy at Eastern/American who lived in Carrollton? Looks like he got the shaft.
I’m not “that guy” but do live in Carrollton. Carrollton did get the shaft, not a single flake. Lucky for me, I spent weekend in Jasper where we had a solid 4 inches.
Hoping for another one for those that missed out.

Just curious if anyone heard what the accumulation totals were for Brasstown Bald and Sky Valley? Wondering if the elevation at these places may have pushed the accumulation totals into double digits?
