NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) —After cracking the 50s for highs in many areas Thursday, Middle Tennessee will be seeing the return of the cold air via two cold fronts.

The first came through Thursday night, dropping temperatures to the low 30s by daybreak. On Friday morning, there may see some isolated patches of a light, brief mix of sprinkles and flurries in some areas, but not very widespread.

However second much colder front will arrive in the afternoon and evening, which will likely be accompanied by some snow flurries and snow showers. Most areas will not see accumulations, but far eastern areas could see 1/2-1″, particularly on the Plateau.

Behind that second front, the bottom drops out again with temperatures in the mid-teens by daybreak Saturday morning. So, slick spots could develop on roadways, particularly in our eastern counties.

Saturday’s highs will struggle to reach the mid-30s despite abundant sunshine.

We do moderate Sunday back to around 50 by the afternoon and next week we could be near 60 by midweek as rain returns.

Overall, this is a small snow event, especially when compared to the snow we’ve seen already this year.

This will mark the fifth winter weather of 2022, and we’re not even through January!
