Down Go The Temperatures (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day)

Quite a night last evening with the sheer number of watches/warnings. The weather radio got quite a workout. It is, by the way, a great Christmas gift idea.

DID YOU KNOW IS BACK and is below!

STORM REPORTS:
Here is a preliminary list of storm reports from across Middle TN.

I have your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day forecast below, it'll feel a lot like Christmas!

VERY HEAVY RAINFALL OVERNIGHT:
Here at my weather station live, we recorded 2.03" of rainfall during this system with all of it but .10" falling during the height of the storm late last night and early this morning.

Looking at Wundermap from Weather Underground, we see cooler temperatures back to our northwest poised to make themselves felt in our area.

FORECAST FOR TODAY AND MONDAY:
We'll see a slight chance for showers today and tonight. It'll be the last warm day for a while with temperatures around the current 57° for today's high. We'll be down to 34° tonight and just in the low 40's on Monday.


SHORT-LIVED BUT BRUTAL COLD AHEAD:
Temperatures plummet for Monday night and Tuesday. We'll struggle to make it to 30° on Tuesday under a clear sky. Now that is Christmas Eve weather! Very cold overnight Christmas Eve and on Christmas morning with lows around 18°. Expect highs in the lower 40's for Christmas Day with sunshine.

DID YOU KNOW:
A) We hit 73° for a high on Saturday (record: 74° in 1998)
B) Only 3 recorded tornadoes in Middle TN since 1950
C) WUndermap is what I use for radar - Check it out here
