A taste of winter this weekend! There is a Freeze Warning in effect from 11pm tonight to 11am tomorrow. With a clearing sky the coldest air of the season arrives with lows in the mid to upper 20s.
This morning's rain moved across the area out ahead of the front. The days high was reached early at 52°. Temperatures dropped into the 40s this afternoon. With clouds lingering it is still in the 40s in Nashville and eastward. The temperatures will start to drop quicker as the clouds move out.
Another disturbance will move by tonight, that will bring a few flurries or light snow showers overnight. Most of that will fall in along the Cumberland Plateau. Check out the timing on this latest Futurecast depiction.
Any sensitive vegetation should be covered or brought inside to prevent damage. A friendly reminder to bring pets inside before you go to sleep tonight. My two Litzy and Lucy will be inside, it's too cold to leave any dogs out.
As you can see on Futurecast this weekend will be beautiful and sunny, just very cold. Expect highs in the lower 40s on Saturday, lows in the middle 20s Saturday night and lower 50s on Sunday. This wind on Saturday morning will also create a wind chill in the teens. This is not good news for runners in the Nashville 1/2 marathon tomorrow.
Rain chances move back into the forecast on Monday with another cold front bringing another shot of cold air. And again afew flurries are possible on Tuesday morning. Back to sunshine on Wednesday. Highs the beginning of next week will be in the low to mid 40s.
I'll have an update on News4 at 10pm.
