After a relatively mild evening Monday, temperatures will fall after a cold front sweeps through the area after Midnight from the north, causing temperatures to tumble.
By daybreak Tuesday temperatures will range between 28 and 36 degrees. While there is not a great deal of moisture to work with, it is expected some light rain will transition to some snow flurries or even snow showers for a brief time in the morning hours.
Surface temps will be above freezing, so the snow will not stick or cause any concerns for drivers.
The exception might be a grassy area or rooftop covered briefly from Nashville north and east on the Highland Rim and Cumberland Plateau.
Highs Tuesday afternoon will only reach the 40-degree mark despite increasing sunshine.
A north wind will remain strong through the day, gusting to 30 miles-per-hour, with wind chills in the 20s. The wind will slacken a little Tuesday night, while lows drop to the mid-and-upper 20s.
