Unprecedented Weather, Low Temps in the South Tonight

All the following taken from the mentioned cities' weather sites

Tonight in New Orleans, Louisiana:
... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 6 am CST

A mix of rain... sleet and snow will continue to occur along the
Mississippi coast. This could pose serious hazardous driving
conditions along elevated highways. There is still a chance of
this completely changing over to snow shortly during the early
morning hours and could be moderate at times. Sleet and snowfall
accumulations of up to two inches will be possible.
A mix of rain... sleet and snow will be possible right around the
New Orleans Metro but little to no accumulations are expected.

Outside of the winter weather problems it will also be windy
especially along the southshore where wind gusts of 40 mph will
be possible.

Houston, Texas:
... Historically early winter snow falls across southeast Texas...
Snow has never fallen this early across southeast Texas.

The previous earliest snow occurred on December 10 2008 and December 10
1944. Accumulating snow has fallen in a 60 mile wide swath from Edna to
Houston. The snow accumulations were generally on grassy areas.
Below are some preliminary snowfall totals from co- op observers
and emergency managers:

Lane City 4.0 inches
Boling 4.0 inches
Wharton 3.0 inches
Fairchild 3.0 inches
El Campo 2.5 inches
Edna 2.0 inches
Pearland (west) 2.5 inches
Bay City 2.0 inches
Richmond 3.1 inches
Missouri City 1.5 inches
Sugarland 1.2 inches
Hobby Airport 1.0 inch
Intercontinental 1.0 inch (thru 5 pm) Airport

Hattiesburg, Mississippi:
A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 6 am CST Saturday.

Bands of moderate to heavy snow will continue to fall across the
warning area through the overnight hours. Total snow accumulations of
1 to 3 inches have already been reported across portions of south
central Mississippi. Additional snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are
expected in the warning area through the early morning hours on
Saturday... resulting in storm total snow accumulations of 2 to
locally 5 inches across the warning area. These accumulations will
result in very hazardous travel conditions...

Marietta, Georgia:
... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 10 am EST
An upper level storm system located over northern Louisiana late
tonight will move east into Alabama Saturday morning spreading
precipitation into Georgia after midnight. Cold air aloft will
also filter into north Georgia late tonight and Saturday morning
allowing the rain to mix with and change to snow around daybreak.
Light snow accumulations around an inch will be possible...
especially in the higher elevations... by midday Saturday before
the precipitation ends.

Much of the snow is expected to accumulate only on grassy and
exposed surfaces... however snow may be heavy enough to cover the
roadways in north Georgia Saturday morning.

Manbearpig's inconvenient, Nashville, Tennessee
backyard forecast tonight:
... A Snow Advisory is in effect for the Cumberland Plateau
from midnight tonight to noon CST Saturday...

Some of the coldest air of the season thus far is expected to
move into middle Tennessee this weekend... along with a chance
for snow over mainly southern and eastern parts of the area.

A cold air mass... out of western Canada... will overspread the
mid state... and produce temperatures some 10 to 15 degrees
below normal. Meanwhile... a low pressure area has developed
across the north central Gulf coastal region... and will track
generally east northeast... to just off the Georgia coast by early
Saturday morning. These two weather events will combine to produce
the likelihood for an accumulating snow along the Cumberland
Plateau after midnight through Saturday morning...
Last year the first measurable snow fell in Nashville on December
11th when 1.0 inches was measured.

Those who have been around this area for a while remember the snows
of the 1960's. The winter of 1959 and 1960 was the snowiest on
record in Nashville with 38.5 inches.

It really says that, on Nashville's weather site~!
Al Gore ought to remember those record snowfalls in '59, shouldn't he?

Shouldn't he?
Why wouldn't he remember them$

It's cold tonight in Yanush, too: +17°F at midnight.

If the earth gets any warmer, you can expect to see at least 17" more of snow.

Snow is forecast for this area, Yanush, for all day next Tuesday, and the Old Farmer's Almanac has a two day period of snow forecast for Dec. 20-21, and something rare for Christmas day too.

So long, Algore! Knowing you was real and it was nice at times, but it wasn never real nice.

Remember how they called it "Global Warming"? Then when that didn't pan out to their liking, in order to cover their own butts, they have now changed it to "Climate Change", with very few people noticing. And climate change can me anything at any given time.

If after years of a dry spell, it all of a sudden starts to rain, that is a disaster to the desert areas and that is climate change.

After a long summer, the temperatures grow cooler, the leaves fall off the trees and it starts to snow, isn't that climate change?
