4WARN Weather Alert tonight due to the change over to winter weather. The winter Weather Advisory is focused on Northeast Middle Tennessee, the most likely spot to receive snow.
Hard to believe we are talking snow since the high reached 54° this afternoon in Nashville. Temperatures have been dropping throughout the afternoon.
The rain is changing over to wet snow this as this system is moving east, especially areas north & east of Nashville. Even Nashville had a little sleet mixing in with the rain.
This system is moving out quickly, that will help keep snowfall totals very low. Here’s the latest Futurecast timing.
A dusting to nearly 1″ is possible on the Cumberland Plateau.
It’ll be colder on Friday but sunny. The will only reach the low 30s. A quick warm up occurs Saturday as the winds change back to the south. The clouds cover will increase, but the rain doesn’t move in until late night Saturday. It remains until Sunday morning then exits before midday. With temperatures remaining above freezing I’ve taken out the winter mix from the forecast. Chillier air is likely Monday but with a sunny sky.
Late Tuesday into Wednesday, expect more rain with near average high in the upper 40s to near 50. I’ll have an update on News 4 at 10pm.
