Skies will be mostly sunny for a few hours this morning with temperatures holding near 40. Although you may see some sunshine right off the bat, it won’t last into the afternoon as an arctic cold front approaches. Scattered rain showers develop this afternoon with highs into the mid 40s. Snow could mix with the rain given how cold the air is aloft, but nothing would stick with temperatures well above freezing. It will be a breezy afternoon with sustained winds from the west at 10-15 mph and gusts to 25 mph.
Temperatures drop tonight, and lows should bottom out in the mid 20s. Snow flurries or even a brief snow shower are possible overnight, and isolated slick spots are possible Tuesday morning. Flurries or occasional light snow are possible throughout Tuesday along with breezy northwest winds. Many will see trace snow amounts up to a dusting, and that could lead to some travel issues. The best chance of seeing a half-inch to 1” of snow would be across southern Middle TN and the higher elevations northeastern AL.
Temperature stay cold on Tuesday…just making it into the mid 30s for a high. Lows will bottom out near 20° that night. Clouds clear out into Wednesday and skies should be mostly sunny by the afternoon. Highs will make it closer to 40.
Temperatures continue warming as we finish the work week. Highs should be into the 40s on Thursday. Clouds increase for Friday, and there will be a slight chance for rain. Highs will be in the mid/upper 40s, but cooler weather can be expected over the weekend.
