On this rainy Monday, our attention is already turning to the next system that will impact our weather, from Tuesday night through Wednesday. Today’s moisture is falling entirely as rain, but things are looking a bit more complicated by tomorrow night. If you’re a snow-lover, don’t get too excited…if you’re a snow-hater, don’t get too worried. This looks like a minimal snow-maker for most of us — the exception to that is in the “usual spots” in eastern Middle Tennessee.
The fog will burn off by between 9-10am, and we’ll see quite a bit of sunshine through early afternoon. That’s temporary, though…by late afternoon, clouds will thicken, and we’ll see rain showers moving in around sunset. These three images show the progress of those showers between 4:00pm and 8:00pm Tuesday:
Notice how “confined” the snow is in those images — accumulations just aren’t likely across most of the Midstate, including the Nashville Metro. But that doesn’t mean Nashville will be completely snow-free…by Wednesday morning, the atmosphere will be squeezing out a few bursts of flurries and light snow:
Those little bursts of snow will only add up to a dusting for most of us: a thin layer of flakes, mostly on lawns and rooftops. The Cumberland Plateau and eastern Highland Rim will, as usual, have the best chance to pick up measurable accumulations:
Plenty of cold air will flow in behind this minor snow-maker. Another chance of flurries will head our way Friday, but right now that’s looking even less impressive than Tuesday night and Wednesday’s snow chance.
