Huge difference in temperature today (Sunday)

A chilly, raw day in the weather forecast.  Just yesterday, we hit 72° for a high..that is long gone.  Highs only expected in the mid 40's today with a chance for showers. Winds are expected to be breezy from the west.  Tonight's forecast is for temperatures to drop into the lower 30's. Take heart as Monday's highs reach the 60's under sunny skies! By the way, a FROST ADVISORY is in effect for West TN for Sunday night.
