Wet Mild Saturday; Wet Colder Sunday; Ice/Sleet Monday?

Posted:

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect starting tonight at midnight through Sunday.

It will be wet most of our Saturday, with a possible break just before sunset when the temperature should top out about 73° (the record is 75° set in 1890!).

Check out the cold air looming to our northwest this morning in the second graphic!

That should begin to filter into the Nashville area around midday on Sunday, dropping temperatures from 60s to 40s along with rain continuing.

The third graphic shows that there may be a time on Sunday when the west and northwest half of Middle Tennessee is in the 40s, while the other half is in the 60s!

On Monday morning, temperatures should drop to about freezing in Nashville with some 20s likely north and west.  There very well could still be some light rain falling from warmer air aloft into the freezing air.

This could result in freezing rain and sleet from Nashville west and north on Monday morning with slick bridges and overpasses.

Sleet should spread across the area as surface temperatures during the day get above freezing.

It is possible that our eastern counties could get sleet and snow on Tuesday.

What a change!
