Science Olympiad Results and Winter Weather

First off, my school (MLK) won 2nd place in the High School Division yesterday at Volunteer State Community College for the Science Olympiad Regional Competition, which means we will compete on April 12 at the state competition. So, go team! I won third place along with my partner in the event Dynamic Planet, which had a focus this year on glaciers. However, the test didn't cover much on climatic cycles, so I was unable to use all of my Weather Underground knowledge. The only question about the climate dealt with the Milankovitch cycle, and I know I got that question right.

Unfortunately, the middle schoolers got 4th place, which makes them an alternate to state. Being an alternate team means they only go if for some reason one of the top three is unable to. The MS half of MLK seemed to collect most of the medals amongst the two teams they sent...so unfortunate they can't go.

--------------------------

On to winter weather!

Massive and powerful winter storm moving across the nation right now, same storm that brought extremely heavy rain and mudslides to drought-stricken California.

Nashville is under a Winter Storm Warning and nearby Hopkinsville, KY is under an Ice Storm Warning. Massive and crippling storm this will be if the forecast holds true









Nashville's Winter Storm Warning

Ice Storm Warning for Hopkinsville

I shall post updates whenever possible, and as the storm progresses and new information comes out. For those affected, remember this: The NWS comes first, then local news channels, then the blogs. Order of reliability. The blogs are good for up-to-the-second information, but you should always check with your local weatherman for the most concrete news.

Thanks for reading and please stay tuned to the weather. The next 48 hours will surely be interesting!

Had a bust of a forecast today...only made it to 31.5 degrees, now going back down. Apparently downtown Nashville saw the sun and all of their snow and ice melt...Didn't see any sun here, and only small areas melted.

Wondering now if I will be out of school for tomorrow. 1/2" of ice still on my driveway...salt is frozen together in storage in my separated garage. Would have to sling a sledgehammer at it several times to be able to use the stuff.

Streets are no longer snow covered, but they are still wet. Will be interesting to see if the remaining salt that the city put down in the morning will keep the streets from re-freezing.


Hey, look at that. Am indeed out for today. :)

Now we shall see about tomorrow. That one will be tricky. Most roads are clear (not my driveway). I'd say 60% chance I will go to school tomorrow.

Hey Astro...whats going on out there?


Not much, there's light snowfall, winds blowing snow around. Good bit of dead branches on the ground. We managed to (just barely) hold on to power.

Everything's coated in ice, I'll try to measure it soon. Still in my PJs...

Still 32 here in Nashville. Don't know how we're going to get down to the forecasted low of 20...


Well...score 1 for the NWS. It's currently 20 degrees outside and doing some light snow. Wind's gusty...but my anemometer part of my weather station is frozen shut.

Nearly 4,000 customers without power: NES Outage Map

Power went off then on then off then on, all through the night. Annoying to say the least. But, right now I still have power.

Dog is indoors (we left him on the porch overnight) and drying off since the winds trying to get him wet.
Cat is outdoors trying to figure out what just happened since when he came indoors last night.

Brain Trauma Extends to the Soccer Field

Your thoughts?


First confirmed case of a soccer player dying from CTE. Not that surprising when you think about.

Good thing I sucked at headers...was usually a defensive player anyways, and usually fielded the ball with my chest, rarely with my head, and sometimes I would let it bounce once depending on where the ball was in respect to the field.

We've had accumulating ice for over an hour. It began to freeze on things starting at 33 degrees. It's now below freezing in Goodlettsville.

Who said that water froze at 32 degrees?!?! That's not true.

If anyone is unsure about road conditions before going somewhere, please check here to find out.

Remember, there is no salt or brine on the roads anymore. The preparation they did for this storm back on Friday and Saturday was completely useless, the rain has washed all the salt off the roads.

EXTENDED MODEL GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO SHOW THIS NEXT SYSTEM TRACKING

PORTIONS OF THIS AREA BY AROUND THE 6 PM TIME FRAME. ICE
ACCUMULATIONS HERE COULD RANGE FROM ONE QUARTER UP TO FOUR TENTHS

OF THE MID STATE TO ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE A CHANGE OVER TO A WINTRY
MIX AFTER MIDNIGHT...WITH THE UPPER CUMBERLAND NOT EXPERIENCING
THE POTENTIAL FOR A WINTRY MIX UNTIL THE EARLY MORNING HRS ON MON.

So far, only Decatur County has closed. But more will follow. The counties usually begin to decide around 4 pm CST, which is about here, so we should see an uptick in closings and cancellations around the area.
