Current Radar Loop


A cold front is shoving rain across Tennessee today. The leading edge was at the TN River around noon. Check out the rain’s current location on the radar, above.

According to the HRRR, the heaviest rain will arrive around rush hour:

After reaching our high in the low 50s by mid-afternoon, temps will fall into the 30s by sundown. It should be 33 by 9 PM, meaning any lingering rain will change over to flurries for a brief time.

To be clear, the HRRR does not believe there will be any lingering precip when the freezing temps arrive. Here it is at 11 PM tonight:

The RAP agrees with the HRRR, above.

Only the Hi-Res NAM gives any support for snow, if you can call it that. These would be very, very light flurries, of no consequence:

A dusting is forecast along and east of I-24:

Black ice is also a concern tonight/overnight for both counties due to wet roads with temps falling through the 20s:

Tomorrow will be our last cold day for the foreseeable future. It’ll be pretty cold in the morning (26 at 9 AM), with a high of 37.

Sunday’s high is 50. Highs Monday through Thursday will be in the 60s!

The Intern will be along late this afternoon with an update.
