Radiational cooling occurs when heat gained by the surface during the day is lost to outer space overnight because of the lack of moisture and cloud cover. Clouds act like a blanket because they help keep heat near the surface… Tonight will be mostly clear.

Sunday – Hard Freeze Warning – Wake Up: 25°, High: 59°

The day will begin with a morning low in the mid to lower 20’s!

The NWS has issued a Hard Freeze Warning for Middle Tennessee between 1 AM and 10 AM.
