Big Frost on Tuesday Night and Wednesday Night

There are patchy, light areas of frost this Monday morning across the Upper Cumberland and the Cumberland Plateau. Our low this morning was 36.3°. Speaking of frost, both Tuesday and Wednesday night lows look to be in the lower 30's for much of our area causing frost after 1 am. If you have flowers budding out along with tender plants, I'd advise covering them on Tuesday and Wednesday nights before going to bed.

For today (Monday), temps climb quickly with a high of 72° this afternoon under a sunny sky. Winds will kick up today to around 10-15 mph with gusts to 20 mph. Overnight, mostly clear and a low of 41°.

Tuesday will be sunny but cooler with a north-northwest wind between 10 and 15 mph with gusts to 25 mph. A high of just 63°. Overnight, expect frost developing after midnight and a low of 34° by Wednesday at sunrise. This will be a killing frost in regards to tender plants.

Wednesday will see areas of frost to start and an eventual high of 60°. Wednesday night's forecast is similar to Tuesday night with a killing frost and a low of 34°.
