Cold front brings more rain Monday and Tuesday
A cold front will approach the Tennessee Valley Monday night into Tuesday morning, triggering more showers, especially Tuesday. Off and on showers possible through the day Monday, with a better chance for rain overnight Monday night as the cold front moves through.
The chance for rain continues through the day Tuesday behind the cold front.
There’s going to be a big cool-down behind this front. Temperatures will be in the 40s by Tuesday afternoon.
The something wintry that won’t add up to much? A few flurries could mix in late Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening before things dry up completely. At this point, we don’t expect any winter weather impacts. Depending on how much rain we see, and how quickly we cool off, its possible we could see a couple of isolated instances of black ice (just slick spots on the roads) Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Things would have to set up just right for that to happen, so we aren’t expecting any widespread issues, but we’ll continue to monitor this as we head through the next couple of days. We’ll let you know if things change.
