As of 3:40 p.m., the cold front has just passed through and our temps are slowly dropping. Our winds just switched to the north. After an afternoon high of 58 degrees, we are now 53 and slowly falling. Cookeville is already 46, with a north breeze that makes it feel more like 42 degrees there. Nashville is 41 degrees, with a wind chill of 36 degrees.
Scattered showers are developing across the plateau at this hour, as well. You may encounter some of those on your drive home.
If you’re headed out this evening just make sure you take a coat with you, and be ready to dodge some rain cold rain showers.
The front will bring a cool, wet night to the plateau, but the wintry weather is expected to stay well to our north and west. The closest winter weather advisory to us includes Clarksville, located northwest of Nashville.
We could still see a flurry in the morning but our temps will likely stay just above freezing for the night.
Below is the graphic showing winter wx advisories for tonight. Notice they are far removed from the Cumberland Plateau.
Below is the current radar, showing light to moderate rain showers area-wide.
I have some exciting new graphics to share in tomorrow morning’s blog! Be sure and look for that! I’m seriously way to excited about these graphics (ha).
You all have a great evening!
