WET AND CHILLY: Your New Year's Eve forecast includes a little something for everyone. We'll reach a high of near 50° today before a cold front sweeps through and begins to drop our temperatures. Sprinkles this morning give way to a mostly cloudy sky this afternoon and tonight. You may see an occasional flurry of snow tonight if you're out and about. Lows by sunrise will be in the 20's. A slight chance of snow for New Year's Day and high of only 30°. The 7-day forecast below shows temperatures not getting above 30° from Saturday through Wednesday! Please check your hose connections on your home and make sure pets have proper amounts and food/water each day.
SPEAKING OF COLD: Check this post from Bobby Boyd at Nashville's NWS on the COLDEST New Years ever.
The Wish List: I am working on my wish list for 2010. It will include some personal things as well as some weather toys. Look for MY WISH LIST later today.
