Big Weather Changes for New Year
NICE 2 DAYS AHEAD:
Gorgeous Friday with a slight chance of rain, high in the upper 50's today across the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee. We do have a slight chance (only about 20%) for a shower. Partly cloudy tonight with a low of 36° by sunrise on Saturday.
Saturday is expected to be the best day as we'll see sunny skies and warm temperatures with light winds. The high will be around 57°. Rain returns for Saturday night (New Year's Eve) and New Year's Day on Sunday. The low will be 43° with the high of 49°. Rain chances right now look to be slight, but that could change to a better chance.
HERE COMES THE COLD:
Temperatures will plunge New Year's night as an Arctic cold front ushers in the coldest air this season. Expect 26° by Monday morning and highs will only creep up to 35° with a low on Monday night of 18°.
SCHOOL START FORECAST:
Schools start back across the Highlands of Tennessee on Tuesday and you'll want to bundle up your kids as 7 am temps will be in the higher teens. The high Tuesday is only expected to reach 35°.
