A clear sky tonight and chilly temperatures means the low will fall to below freezing. This morning we started out with 34° and with abundant sunshine the temperature rose to 51° in Nashville.  Tomorrow morning will be chilly again in the upper 20s for most.

On another note, this date is significant in weather history in our area. This is the day that temperatures plummeted to an all-time low in Middle Tennessee as Kingston Springs dropped to -30°  That is just 2° away from tying the state record in Mountain City Tennessee. The lowest ever recorded in Nashville was -17° set January 21, 1985.
