Before we start, friendly reminder to SPRING FORWARD before you put your head on your pillow tonight! Daylight saving time officially starts at 2:00 AM on Sunday…
Alright! How about this weather?! Tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and upper 70s just two days ago to snow covered grounds this morning! Mother Nature keeps us on our tippy toes! 🙂
This little snowman was sent by viewer Roger…looking a little frozen but still very cute.
Here’s another cutie pie snowboy! His sweet momma tweeted me this from White Bluff. How fun!
Here’s a check on snowfall totals…
So here’s how things shape up currently and springing forward…no puns intended here. Showers are jogging through, mainly south of I-40, just as expected. Areas under the GREEN (not many left) are seeing plain ol’ rain — areas under the PINK (far less then earlier) are seeing a rain/snow mix and areas under the WHITE are seeing the ‘s’ word…plain ol’ snow.
I expect this to push east and out of here right around midnight or so. With temperatures dropping below freezing, the entire Mid STate falls under a FREEZE WARNING through noon on Sunday.
A few friendly reminders — protects the three P’s — cover/bring in sensitive plants, do not forgot the pets outside and protect your pipes!
In addition, a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for all areas under the PURPLE color, which includes most of Middle Tennessee. With temperatures dropping below freezing tonight, slick spots will develop especially on bridges, overpasses and elevated surfaces. Please take extra caution if you plan on driving anytime overnight or on Sunday morning.
Bright sunshine and warmer temperatures will melt anything remaining on Sunday. IT’s not long before our next chance of rain, as soon as Monday…and plenty of it. A few flurries are possible early Tuesday morning but besides that, expect a dry and chilly day with highs only touching the mid-40s. The coolest day in the week ahead looks to by Wednesday, with a high of 41 (ouch), Time to break out the hot cocoa and warm winter coats!
I have a full show, with lots to share with you tonight — including additional snowfall totals. Who is going to see it and how much? I have the answer coming up on Channel 4 at 10 tonight!
