Possible single digit lows next week

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The chance for Thursday's rain showers ending as snow showers has everyone's attention. 

Nashville could see a dusting and up to an inch Northwest and East of town.

We may not see temps get above freezing on Friday.

The first graphic to the left shows how cold the air up north is that is on the way.

However, with school starting again next week, and everyone returning to work, I think we all need to be aware of the possibility of some of the coldest air we've seen in a couple years by then.

That could ring out more snow showers late Sunday.

Highs on Monday and Tuesday could stay in the mid 20s with lows Monday and Tuesday night in the single digits.  Wind chills will be below zero.

The two models used for six to seven days out, the GFS and the ECMWF are both showing lows between five and 10 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings (see graphics). 

The ECMWF has been hinting at this for a few days, but now the GFS is falling in line, as well.  That gives forecasters more confidence.

Our last single digits were in January of 2011.

Whether additional snow showers late Sunday, and the frigid temperatures and wind chills affect schools next week still remains to be seen.

We'll keep you posted.
