First Snow

Is it fall? Or is it winter? The Tennessee Valley had their fair share of cold temperatures and blustery conditions Saturday. Some even saw their first snowfall.

Signal Mountain residents woke up to snow on their houses, on their cars and all over their yard Saturday morning. Kim Hays, Signal Mountain said, "I’m a little cold. I’m a little confused. About 80 degree weather earlier this week and I think the weather is confused. I think we are all confused." Yes, it’s the first snow of the season on November 1st. Owen Sonders, Signal Mountain said, "Man its cold as a witch. I got out and I couldn’t see out of my window of my truck, so I took a piece of wood and wiped it off and I made it."

Signal Mountain wasn’t the only area to see snow. Hays said, "Well I love the snow and I saw one of my friend’s from South Carolina, they have inches." Fredonia Mountain in Dunlap, Pikeville in Bledsoe county and Evansville, Tennessee were some of the areas that saw the snow Saturday morning. Hays said, "I like it, but my bones say no. I do like the snow." Not only did we have the white stuff, but we woke up to some of the coldest temperatures we have seen all season. Plus, the winds right out of the north made the temperatures feel even colder throughout the day. Sonders said, "Its pretty cold. The wind is blustery."

Areas just to our north near Gaitlinburg, Tennessee, in the higher elevations, saw upwards of 22 inches of snow Saturday morning. If you think its too early to see winter, don’t worry more sunshine and warmer temperatures will be back in the forecast for next week.
