It is a bitterly cold Saturday morning, with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s, combined with a gusty northwest wind, wind chills are in the upper 20s and low 30s. Check out the 10:00 am temperatures and wind chills below.
The storm system that brought the rain yesterday, continues to pull away, with clouds and some moisture lingering on the back side of the low. Patchy drizzle is possible this morning. A few pieces of energy embedded within the upper trough, associated with the storm system are providing enough lift in the Mid Mississippi River Valley for some snow light snow. This plume of light snow is drifting southeast towards south central Tennessee and North Alabama. Scattered flurries will be possible this afternoon and early evening, though only very light, if any accumulations are expected. Light snow may linger a little longer along the Cumberland Plateau and Northeast Alabama, but only a light dusting at best is possible. Below is a look at Armor Radar and the regional satellite and radar showing the burst of light snow moving southeast into western Tennessee.
The sky will gradually clear overnight as temperatures dip down into the 20s, with a few of the normally colder spots in the low 20s. Sunshine finally returns Sunday, but highs will struggle to reach the low to mid 40s. Warmer temperatures for New Years Eve and New Years Day, with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s, with rain moving in late New Year’s Eve into New Years Day.
