.DISCUSSION...
AN EVENT THAT DOESNT HAPPEN VERY OFTEN OCCURRED AGAIN
TODAY...LAKE/RIVER EFFECT SNOW! THESE FLURRIES DID NOT ACCUMULATE
HOWEVER. IT WAS VISIBLE ON SATELLITE AND RADAR COMING OFF OF WHEELER
LAKE AND THE TN RIVER. AS WINDS SHIFT TO BECOME MORE WESTERLY...THE
FETCH WILL NO LONGER BE FAVORABLE AND END THE EVENT.

CLOUD COVER...A FEW SNOW SHOWERS AND FLURRIES STILL LINGER IN
NORTHEAST ALABAMA AND SOUTHERN MIDDLE TN. AS DEWPOINTS CONTINUE TO
DROP...IT WILL BE HARDER FOR PRECIP TO REACH THE GROUND.
HOWEVER...LEFT FLURRIES IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN THROUGH THIS
AFTERNOON AS WESTERLY WINDS WILL BRING IN SOME MID LEVEL MOISTURE
INCREASING CLOUD COVER LATER THIS AFTERNOON WITH A LITTLE BIT OF
ISENTROPIC LIFT. QUESTION THAT REMAINS IS IF THE PRECIP WILL MAKE IT
THROUGH THE SFC DRY LAYER EVEN THOUGH IT SHOULD BE COLD ENOUGH TO
SUPPORT FLURRIES.
