Slow Warm-Up Ahead

SNOW ENDING SOON: Only a 20% chance of snow today after a light dusting overnight. Temperatures are very cold again on this Wednesday morning. We do, however, expect a slow warming trend over the next few days. By the weekend, afternoon high temperatures may actually approach the norms (50°) for this time of year. Unfortunately, I don't think it will you'll see in the Daily Weather Story section located below. For this afternoon, snow ending, high of 31° under a cloudy sky. Tonight, cold again, low of 23°. For Thursday, sunshine returns and a high of 37°.  

Weather History for This Date
1956 - An F2 tornado injures two in Fentress County between Jamestown and Allardt. Two more are injured  during an F3 tornado between Lawrence and Giles county. That tornado stayed on the ground for 10 miles.

Daily Weather Story
Cold continues to be the big story. In fact, here are some graphics on the next two weeks outlook for temps across the nation. As you can see, we have an 80% chance of below normal temperatures. Thank you to Eddie Holmes over in Jackson, TN for this information.
