Sunday and Beyond...

SUNNY SUNDAY
Very nice weather ahead for our Sunday.  If you like sunshine and warm temperatures, Sunday is your kind of day! How about mostly sunny with highs right around 60 degrees and some wind?  Not too bad for February 1st!

*Latest, Local Forecast*

WHAT ABOUT SNOW??
Ok, let's get to the other weather going on for the next few days after that.  We have a developing low pressure system that is slated to track near the gulf coast on Monday and Tuesday.  It will make a big left turn and run up the I-95 corridor and east coast in the middle of next week.  This will, of course, create one massive snowstorm for the major metropolitan areas on the east coast.  What does that mean for us in Tennessee??  I'm glad you asked.

WHAT IT MEANS FOR US
There is the potential for this storm track to go a little north and west of the current track according to the latest computer models.  If it should track that way, we could see a our biggest snowfall of the current winter season.  I'm NOT saying that is going to happen...however, it is worth mentioning.  Right now, the thinking is for rain to change to snow on Monday.  Timing is around 12 noon or so, again not set in stone at this point.  There is also some potential (albeit; low) for snow on Sunday night....(I know..after a 60-degree high)

TURNING COLD AGAIN!
After a changeover to all snow on Monday afternoon, we expect light snow on Monday night with lows in the mid 20's.  Another impulse swings through on Tuesday giving us yet another shot of snow with highs struggling to reach 30 degrees.  Along with that extra chance of snow comes much colder temperatures as lows Tuesday night will be in the teens for most of us in Middle Tennessee. 

WARMER WEATHER LATER IN WEEK
We do recover nicely by the end of the week where we might see highs in the upper 40's and lower 50's...but, we have to get through this potential winter weather situation first.  I'm not yet excited about our chances, however, I am starting to get there.  Should the computer models shape up tomorrow (by getting in more consistent agreement), then we can start talking about potential accumulations.  For now, let's just say we are going to see some winter weather precipitation during the first part of the workweek!!

The low just goes from tracking into georiga to tracking to central florida i think the models coould be wrong.
