Friday Night Forecast Update
WET SNOW CONTINUING:
Snow has continued to fall across the Upper Cumberland region of middle Tennessee this evening. Most areas are reporting a dusting however I expect we'll hear some 1" to 1.5" amounts by morning. With temperatures hovering right around freezing, road conditions are classified as wet, but not slippery in most locations. Bitterly cold air is poised back to our northwest and will filter in overnight.
WATCH OUT IN THE MORNING:
As of 11:00 pm, all of middle Tennessee is still in the lower 30's and the 20's are located in the western sections of Kentucky. As temperatures drop in to the middle 20's before sunrise, road conditions will deteriorate rapidly. Be careful if you have Saturday morning travel plans.
BITTERLY COLD SATURDAY:
Winds will pick up on Saturday with wind chill readings dropping into the single digits. Highs are not expected to rise above the upper 20's during the afternoon on Saturday. Snow showers will diminish to flurries after lunch and skies will remain cloudy. Expect wind gusts to 25 mph. Dress appropriately for the very cold conditions.
MID-TEENS SUNDAY MORNING:
Skies will clear by evening and temperatures will drop rapidly. Expect a low of 14° by sunrise on Sunday and a high of just 35° on Sunday afternoon.
