NASHVILLE, TENN. (WTVF) — Temperatures tumbled Tuesday night as a cold front continues to surge Southward.

The sneaky part about this cold front is when it creeps back into our Southern counties Thursday morning. Cold air will be deeply entrenched across our area Thursday morning which will set the stage for a light wintry mix of rain & snow (perhaps some sleet pellets too) across our Southern tier.

Little to no accumulation is expected for a couple reasons. First, the ground is relatively warm. Second, the system will be moisture starved so there won't be much to work with. Third, there's a fairly small window for anything to stick. Lastly, with rain-drops mixing any snowflakes that do try to fall will likely melt.

That being said, there's a chance for some light accumulations mainly across Southern parts of the Cumberland Plateau.

Yes, there is a chance, but it's pretty piddly so don't hold your breath (or you might pass out!). Flake or no... it's gonna be cold, so bundle up!
