A break in the action later Tuesday into Wednesday will give the atmosphere a rest before more precip returns late Wednesday night.

Thursday’s Strong Cold Front

There are still some model disagreements on the speed of rain versus cold air intrusion on Thursday. What’s meant by that is, the faster the air can cool to or below 32°, the higher the potential for some light rain to changeover to a mix or all snow here in middle TN.

If we see any wintry precipitation, it will be light and during the early morning hours on Thursday. Once temperatures start to climb through the day, a changeover to rain is most probable.

Since the American and European models are not agreeing quite yet, the chance for accumulating snow is very low, but something we’ll keep an eye on.

Total Rain Accumulation Through Late Week

1-2″ of total rain between now and Thursday are probable, with locally higher amounts likely. I wouldn’t be surprised to see 3-3.5″ on some rain gauges by late week.

BIG Temperature Drop

Thursday night, we’ll dip into the lower 20s and upper teens. Brr!

Friday Morning GFS Temperatures

Friday’s afternoon temps barely make it above the freezing mark, so quite a weather pattern shift is on tap for the beginning of next weekend.
