Winds have continued to roar across middle TN with gusts to 33 mph here in Cookeville while behind the cold front, Jackson has seen winds gust to 44 mph. Expect winds to become even stronger after frontal passage late this afternoon. Gust between 40 and 50 mph are expected from later in the afternoon through the late evening hours.
A Transition To Snow Tonight:
Rain will fall heavy at time this morning and will transition here in the Cookeville area after dark over to snow showers. I believe accumulations will be limited to the higher elevations of the northern and eastern plateau areas. Here in Cookeville, the best chances to see some snow showers will be in the 8 pm-midnight range with a light dusting at best.
Bitter Cold Friday:
Friday's forecast is going to be a memorable one. We'll start a bit cloudy but clear quickly and the winds will continue to be strong but we add a different caveat to the mix as temps won't get out of the 30's on Friday making the wind chill (or feels like) down into the upper teens to lower 20's. Bundle up appropriately.
