Well, here we go again.

From our NWS:

Falling surface temperatures combining with drizzle or light rain may create some freezing drizzle or sleet starting around midnight and lasting through sunrise in the highlighted area (above). Accumulations are expected to be very limited due to warm surface temperatures, but this could cause some slick spots on area roadways for the first part of the morning commute.

Around 2 AM, a lingering band of precip is expected to stretch across Middle Tennessee:

This is the culprit, and the source of the freezing drizzle concern.

According to this fancy weather model, recent warm temps should limit ice accumulation:

Y’all know the drill. Bridges/Overpasses/Elevation are most vulnerable.

Your amusement may vary.

Monday – Mostly Cloudy  Morning Low 32 / Afternoon High 52

Any ice will quickly melt. Despite a chilly north wind, we’ll begin the process of warming up.

Tuesday – Partly Sunny & Warmer  Morning Low 34 / Afternoon High 65
