What happened to Spring? Once again middle Tennessee has been shoved into a chilly stretch of weather as a strong cold front moved through the state Sunday morning.

Temperatures will drop into the low to mid 30s by Monday morning prompting the National Weather Service to issue a freeze warning from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Monday’s temperatures will have a hard time getting out of the 40s to near 50 with partly to mostly cloudy skies. That’s over 20 degrees below average for this time of year.

Another cold night is ahead Monday into Tuesday as skies clear and winds calm. Expect temperatures to again drop into the low to mid 30s by Tuesday morning.

A freeze watch has been issued from 2 a.m. to 8a.m. Tuesday morning. 

Finally, temperatures rise back into the low 70s Tuesday afternoon under sunny skies. By the way, the average date of the last freeze is April 6th, about 10 days ago.

The latest Spring freeze was on April 25 set way back in 1910. Let’s hope we don’t challenge that record!
