Mostly cloudy, wet snow showers for Thanksgiving Day

The records for Knoxville go back to 1884.

The following are Thanksgivings where at least Trace (T) snowfall was recorded:

November 28, 1889 T
November 27, 1902 0.2"
November 26, 1903 T
November 28, 1912 T
November 28, 1929 T
November 26, 1936 0.6"
November 24, 1938 1.3"
November 26, 1953 T
November 25, 1954 T
November 22, 1956 T
November 23, 1972 T

One thing to note though is that the years 1996, 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003 don't have snowfall reported. I'm not sure why at the moment... But hope this helps!
