Back to reality as winter returns to Middle Tennessee


What goes up, must come down. Dreamy spring-like warmth could not last forever.

A cold front positioned to the northwest is scheduled to plow into Middle Tennessee Tuesday night, slashing temperatures.

As temperatures rise toward the middle 60s Tuesday afternoon, it’ll bring gusty winds from the north at 20 to 25 mph. The front approaches Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky around sunset, changing the wind direction. With more of a push from the north, the gates are open for a Canadian breeze to barrel into the area.

By Wednesday morning, the air in Middle Tennessee will be around the freezing mark. Despite wall-to-wall sunshine, highs only reach the 40s, not just for Wednesday, but into the upcoming weekend, too. Plus, nighttime lows drop to the 20s.

A market difference, however this is more typical weather for this time of the year.

Finally, with cold air in place for the weekend, a system out of Texas approaches and could spark off a wintry mix for a few places Saturday and again Sunday morning. At this time, it should be a mainly rain event, but small differences in the forecast could spell a little ice or snow.
