Rain, Falling Temperatures, and More!

Rain this morning will be followed by falling temperatures this afternoon.   We may see some light snow flurries later tonight.  Sunday is expected to be cold with highs reaching just under 40° BUT with a sunny sky.

PLAYOFF FOOTBALL IN NASHVILLE!
Our Tennessee Titans face the Baltimore Ravens this afternoon at LP Field in Nashville.  My predicition is the Titans 21 Ravens 17.  *GO TITANS*  Game time temps are expected to be around 50° and fall through the 40's during the first half.  Depending on the arrival of the cold air, temps could be down to just under 40° by the end (of the Raven's season that is) of 4th qtr! :)

NEXT WEEK'S THOUGHTS
We staring down the barrel of a very strong cold pattern.  It is expected to take hold of the Tennessee area starting late next week.  Temperatures will be among the coldest we've seen in the last 4 years.  I wouldn't be surprised to see us drop to near ZERO for a night or two.  Highs may only reach the mid 20's on Friday.  Forecasting models do hint at a possible snow event.  We are nowhere close to putting that in stone!  The cold air, though, is coming.  That you can count upon!

Mighty close to zero one week from today - u r on it! But, goodness, if we have to deal with this cold having some snow would sure help the attitude. Know what I mean? Ugh. Good luck on the snow. Appears we'll have enough cold to share the wealth!! - Be Well, Be Warm! - Eddie
