One Last Warm Day

SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK: Today starts Severe Weather Awareness Week across Tennessee. Each day, we'll have a post at the Examiner web site on the day's feature. Schedule of posts and Sunday's feature article

NICE SUNDAY AHEAD: If you like warmth without rain, you will LOVE today. Highs are expected to reach 60° once again (saw 60° as our high Saturday). The last time we saw temperatures this warm was on December 14th! The last time we saw two days in a row above 60° was November 28th and 29th. A run of nearly 90 days.

BACK TO REALITY: After Sunday's warm temperatures, we'll see rain overnight. A cool and rainy Monday. With frontal passage on Monday, temperatures drop to below normal and stay there for a while. Some snow is not out of the question! The great news is, while it'll be very cold Tuesday night, the cold weather is not as deep or last as long as the cold air earlier this month. We will see a very active pattern into the first week of March. If we get the right combination of cold air and precip, another accumulating snow would be very possible.

Weather History for This Date
February 21, 1929 - Nashville receives 8" of snow for a two-day total of 15". The snow occurs over a 13 hour period!

Daily Weather Story
Warm weather is the big story. As I said in the opening paragraph above, it has been quite a while since we've seen temperatures this warm!
