TEMPS GOING DOWN:
Cold air is poised just to our north associated with a front. Temperatures at the 4 pm hour are mainly in the 50's across Tennessee but readings in the 40's are knocking on our door in Kentucky. Our high hit 58.8° around 6:30 this morning and has been slowly falling (about 1.5° to 2° per hour since 2 pm).
MORE COLD AIR:
A reinforcement of the cold air will occur Monday with blustery conditions (wind gusts to 40 mph) and highs struggling to reach the middle 30's. We can't rule out a chance of snow on Monday night (not excited about the chances nor any shot at accumulation) as lows will drop to the teens by Tuesday morning. The highs Tuesday will struggle to freezing with another bitterly cold night on Tuesday with lows by Wednesday morning around 20°.
WARMING TREND MID-WEEK:
We should moderate mid-week and by Friday the high should be in the middle 50's. Computer forecasting models do show another strong shot at cold air with an associated storm next week and that could bring our first accumulating snowfall of the season. Time will tell.
