This Week’s Hazards
Five-Day Weather Forecast

Friday night: Rain showers continue, possibly mixing with snow. Little to no snow accumulation expected.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy and cold. Showers likely, especially the first half of the day, possibly mixed with snow. Little to no snow accumulation expected.
Sunday: Mostly sunny and cold.
Monday: Increasing clouds. Light snow possible overnight. Accumulation uncertain.
Tuesday: Chance of rain and snow.
A huge pattern change is in the works, as the strongest cold front of the season moves our way later today. The interaction of that front with the remnants of “Nicole” are giving us good rain chances today. Another disturbance moves in overnight and that will bring some cold rain showers that could even mix with or change to snow showers. I’ll monitor that closely. As of now, the only accumulation expected tonight is for areas just norhwest of Nashville, where cold air will move in sooner and change the rain to snow quicker.
Yet another disturbance will move in Monday night and Tuesday and that system will have Gulf moisture to work with. Right now, precip amounts look light but there could be enough cold air in place to bring another chance for light snow. Staty tuned.

While today’s rain will certainly help out, drought conditions continue across the state and have worsened. The drought map updates each Thursday, so it will be interesting to see how much this week’s rainfall impacts next week’s update.
