Wind Chill Advisory Thru Wednesday AM, A Little More Snow Possible Thurs. Night, More Dangerous Temps This Weekend

Wind Chill Advisory continues thru 10 AM Wednesday.

  • “Wind chills as low as 15° below zero…plan on slippery road conditions. The cold wind chills could result in hypothermia if precautions are not taken.” – NWS Nashville

High temps only expected to make it to 18° today. Wind chills will be stuck in the single digits during the day.

Air temps tonight will be very close to 0°, your backyard may make it below zero.

If sledding or going out today, make sure to bundle up. Frostbite and hypothermia can set in very quickly.

Frostbite & Hypothermia: Know Your Actions.
If someone might have frostbite or hypothermia, seek medical attention immediately!
Get to a warm area. Remove wet clothing. Warm up with dry layers of blankets or clothing. Place skin affected by frostbite in warm water (not hot).
Frostbite caution: do not use fireplaces or artificial heat sources for warming. Do not rub or put pressure on areas with frostbite.

Road conditions are still sketch, especially backroads that haven’t been treated. Continue to take it slow if going out. Clear off the roof of your car before heading out. Do not let ice missiles fly into other cars. You can check the TDOT Smartway cams here.

If you were snow deprived, you were certainly left happy.

A map showing the distribution of snowfall amounts across Middle Tennessee. 8 inches in Nashville to 5 inches in Lafayette.

Most of us ended with 6-8″, some as high as 9″. Crazy.

With temperatures expected to stay below freezing until Thursday, not much melting will occur.

Another system may bring us some more wintry precip Thursday PM, but this set up is significantly different than what we just had. Temperatures will be hovering around the freezing mark, so it looks like we may get a mix of rain and snow.

For now, models think rain will start sometime Thursday afternoon, then snow gradually will mix in.

Snow totals look minimal, less than an inch currently expected for places north of I-40, very little, if any expected south of I-40.

Forecast subject to change, check for back updates.

Brutally cold temperatures return Friday and Saturday.

Sub-freezing temps all day Friday and Saturday, with low temps back in the single digits. Wind chills will likely be below zero at night.

If you dislike the cold, good news, change is coming.
