Thoughts On Tonight

**5:35 PM UPDATE**
Putnam County Schools are CLOSED for FRIDAY, January 16th 

**4:15 PM UPDATE** 
Several school systems have announced they will close on Friday.
Putnam County, TN schools haven't yet made a decision.
The school closing links are located just above this post to the right.

With clear skies and a large high pressure system camping out over us, temperatures will drop quickly after sunset.  By sunrise, many of us will be around zero degrees.  Some locations will drop below zero.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

Friday won't be much warmer than today.  This afternoon's high was only 19°, but it won't qualify as a record due to the temperature being in the 20's just after midnight.

From the Nat'l Weather Service:
For tonight, tomorrow, Friday night, and Saturday
NASHVILLE       3  22  12  41 / 
CLARKSVILLE     0  22  12  42 /

So how is weather looking for tomorrow morning? I believe Putnam county schools should be closed; many kids have to wait out at bus stops

Do YOU think they'll close the schools tonight?

Morning temperatures will be right around ZERO and will warm slowly. Bus Stop temps won't be much above our morning low....

Doesn't matter...because they are CLOSED!!! :)

I feel bad for the White County kids. :(

Hey Jason....maybe they will call that school system later! :)

White County always closes later than anybody else. The superintendant hates to miss a day he didn't have to.

Hey Michael! No schools closed in west TN that I am aware of. We got down to 12 in the big city with most outlying areas in the upper single digits (7-10), though areas north of Jackson went a little lower. Looks like a warm-up comes a little this weekend and more next week.
