Strange Day But Short-Lived Relief Ahead

Quite the weather day across much of middle Tennessee with freezing rain to our west past Nashville but only rain in much of the rest of the mid-state. The highest accumulation of ice as of 9:30 pm CST is in Dickson and Perry Counties where around 1/4" is being reported. Typically anything under 1/4" is considered a nuisance. Disruptions can occur with 1/2" while widespread accumulations over 1/2" are considered crippling.

Locally in the Cookeville area, it's been an all rain event. If we don't drop by 3-5° tonight, we should remain all rain by the morning. Temperatures should recover nicely on Wednesday with a daytime high of 42° and rain chance of 60%. A slight rain/snow chance on Wednesday night with no accumulation expected and a low of 30°.

Thursday will finally see us drying out but remain cloudy with a high of 44°. Cold and partly cloudy on Thursday night with a low of 26° by sunrise on Friday.

Friday through the weekend is for warm, sunny days on Friday and Saturday with highs in the 50's but backing down to the mid 40's on Sunday.

We completely fall off the cliff with temps on Monday with a high of just 39° and falling temps with scattered flurries and a low of just 12°. Tuesday's high will be just 27°.
