A blast of arctic air that will be the coldest air of the season is poised to charge into Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky late Monday.
As the cold air moves in, the rain expected to arrive Monday afternoon could shift over to snow flurries and snow showers for parts of the area.
The question as often is the case is, “will the cold air catch up with the moisture”?
Although some models are forecasting significant accumulations, the most likely scenario is that much of the area will receive a coating of snow. For Southern Kentucky and The Plateau, between 1/2 inch and 1 inch of snow accumulation will be possible.
This far in advance, there will likely be adjustments to the forecast, so stay tuned!
Temperatures on Wednesday may not get above freezing in some parts of the mid-state (we are forecasting 34 for Nashville), and we could likely tie or break the record low of 18° on Wednesday morning.
