Current Official Hourly Observation (taken at :53 on the hour) & Radar
(Editor’s Note: The Intern comically titled this post “FREAKING COLD! Warmer Weekend, Then FREAKING COLD Again!” I’m not really sure why I edited it. I just…I don’t know. I’m just not feeling funny these days. Nothing seems to deserve an exclamation point anymore. I may have lost my sense of taste. These pretzels aren’t making me thirsty. People are sending me to my room. I’ve been wearing a lot of gray. And black….)
Tonight – Another Cold Front – Midnight Temp 18
A few flurries are possible, but very unlikely. Dry air is zapping them.
Days till Summer:
Another arctic front arrives after midnight. (Editor’s Note: LIKE WE NEED ANOTHER REINFORCING SHOT OF COLD AIR. TODAY WASN’T COLD ENOUGH? WHAT, WAS IT TOO WARM? AND NOW WHY AM I SUDDENLY ANGRY?)
Even worse, the air is too dry for any accumulating sleet, natural Dippin Dots, snow, flurries or other mysterious wintry mix.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, thanks, and we hope you were prepared for this.
With winds sustained at 15 mph, gusting up to 25 mph, I would not want to go outside either.
Winds will weaken just a bit in the afternoon/evening hours.
A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for counties just northwest of Davidson and Williamson counties.
There will be no snow or other precip.

Extended Official NWS Forecast:
Another arctic blast returns at the beginning of next week. Sorry, y’all.
There’s this: January 28- February 1:
The cold is classified as a “hazard.” I agree.
If it’s going to be this cold, it might as well snow. No snow is in the forecast. The models running into next week are too far out to be meaningful or reliable. The Euro has a snow event around Feb 1, but again, that’s total speculation. I probably wouldn’t have even said anything about it had I not spent all this time looking for false hope. That model will change a lot over the next week or so, too. *Sigh*
