“Heat Wave” and Rain - But Maybe Too Much

BNA got all the way up to 47° today, which feels like quite the accomplishment.

Wind Chill Advisory Through Sunday Morning

The brutal cold is the big story. More on that in just a bit. First, quick note about the snow.

Light snow showers across the area have been stubborn to dissipate today with some sites still reporting light snow or flurries ongoing this afternoon. So a dusting or a quick half inch of snow isn`t out of the question still through this afternoon, but all of this should wind down within the next few hours. NWS Nashville

If you get a quick burst of snow, roads can deteriorate quickly on a local level, even if just for a few minutes. Take it easy out there. read more

Snow on top of vehicles can become aerodynamic ice missiles, and you do not want that flying thru a windshield. read more
