Workweek Weather

After a day filled with radiant sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures on Saturday, Mother Nature sure balanced things out with the clouds and a rain/snow mix today. Snowfall accumulations summed up to an inch in Crossville and 0.7″ in East Algood. Surface temperatures for most of Middle Tennessee were warm enough to melt the flakes just as they hit, making way for just wet roads. Loyal Channel 4 viewer Rebecca sent this one in from Dickson — sweet Annie enjoying a walk in the snow flakes.

Here’s a radar update (6:02 PM here) — light rain showers mainly I-65 east with a few passing snow showers along the Cumberland Plateau. They’ll continue sliding east and out of here by around midnight…video-radar

Wet roads combined with below freezing temperatures tonight will lead to slick spots on the road through the overnight and morning commute on Monday. Please take it easy as you head out, no need to rush. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect for our northeastern counties (all areas under the PURPLE) through midnight. dt-watch2

Current temps are in the upper 30s to lower 40s, above freezing — reason why most of the precipitation is in the form of plain rain. wsmv-dma-temps-zoom1_effectsquiggle-autoplot

Futurecast is not depicting the above freezing temperatures very well so it keeps most of the shower activity in the form of snow through midnight but I’m expecting the snow mainly over the Cumberland Plateau area, with slight mixing/plain light rain I-65 east.dd-rpm-12km-evening

Most of the activity clears by midnight but that does not mean roads will not still be slippery, especially over bridges and secondary roads…dd-rpm-12km-evening2dd-rpm-12km-evening3dd-rpm-12km-evening4

Heavy coats will be needed for the kids at the bus stop in the morning. Upper 40s is what you can expect when you pick them up, which is chilly right around the ball park of average for this time of year.

A beautiful stretch of sunshine will kick start the workweek and unseasonably warm mid to upper 50s arrive by Tuesday into Wednesday. Not bad, right? 🙂wsmv-4-plus-4-pm

    Finally! January 28 was the first day of 2017 with clear skies over Nashville. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait another 4 weeks for the next clear day;-).
