Cold Day And Week Ahead

Don't forget to vote in our SNOW POLL above!! 

BUNDLE UP AGAIN - Downright chilly today and this week. We start this morning off around 20° with sunshine. Look for a high around just 38°. A persistent, cold wind will make it feel even colder. Clouds move in tonight with a low of 23° and Tuesday looks sunny with highs around 43°. The pattern gets really active Wednesday through the weekend as snow, sleet, cold rain, and accumulating snow are all in our forecast! Jeff Ray at NashvilleWX has a great explanation of the upcoming cold and snow. Enjoy your day and when you get a moment, check out my daughter's photography web site.

i think folks are voting the snow poll with their hearts not their heads. i don't expect any signifigant snow this winter either.

You are probably right about folks voting with their hearts Jerry!

We are definitely in a cold pattern and if we get the right amount of precipitation combined with the right amount of cold air, a nice snow event is certainly possible!
