Clouds & Cooler Temperatures Blanket Middle Tennessee

It was an honor and joy to spend my morning with the third graders of Gladeville Elementary! We covered everything from green screen technology to clouds, to thunderstorms and severe weather safety. They even sang a cloud song for me! What fun.


Speaking of cloud songs, we are having a cloud party across most of Middle Tennessee today. Looks like a down comforter covering Downtown as I write here (3:14 pm)…video-tvi

This aids as a barrier between the sun and the surface, keeping temperatures noticeably cooler today! Yesterday, Nashville hit a high of 60…not the story today. Finally FEELING like January in the upper 40s and some still hanging strong in the upper 30s. Paris, you are one of them! wsmv-dma-temps-zoom1_effectsquiggle-autoplot

Tomorrow morning we drop even further. Overnight lows dip down into the lower 30-degree range, right around the ball park of average. Extra layers will be needed as the kids head out to the bus stop in the morning. Maybe a side of hot cocoa? 🙂


So here’s the deal. An upper level system keeps the slightest chance for a few passing flurries tonight, but mainly after midnight, as temps drop to below freezing. Futurecast is in agreement — impacting areas towards the east, especially along the Cumberland Plateau. Check it out…dd-rpm-12km-eveningdd-rpm-12km-evening2dd-rpm-12km-evening3

Same story on Friday, only difference? Just knocking a couple of degrees off the daytime high, in the lower 40s. Sunshine will make warmer lower 50s feel even better by the weekend…but only for the first half. Temperatures will drop back down into the low 40s by Sunday and a weak passing system keeps the chance for a rain/snow mix. Something to keep an eye on as time gets a bit closer.wsmv-4-plus-4-pm

I’ll have the full timeline of this cooler pattern coming up on Channel 4 at 4 & 4:30 today. I’ll also be hosting a Q&A just after the show to personally answer any of your weather questions. You can find that and be apart of my conversation right here –>

Be sure to join Chief Meteorologist Lisa Spencer for updates coming up at 5, 6 & 10 tonight!
