NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A strong front is headed to Middle Tennessee, bringing rain and much colder air that will keep temperatures down for the next several days.
Highs will be in the mid-50s on Thursday but will drop to the 40s by the afternoon. The rain will be out of here by the time the coldest air arrives, but a few snowflakes could happen on the Plateau.
Temperatures will be falling behind the front, and Friday highs will struggle to reach the mid 40s. Wind chills will also be in the 30s during the day Friday with a cold northeasterly wind at 10-15 mph.
The weekend isn't looking too bad, with temps rebounding to the low to upper 50s and dry conditions. However, models agree that another bitter blast of cold air will arrive by Veteran's Day.
Another strong cold front will bring winter-like weather and a small chance for rain to the area Monday. The big question is how quickly will the cold air arrive and how much moisture will be left. Models hint at a few flakes flying by Monday night, but at this point no major impacts are expected.
Keep in mind we are a few days away from this event and will keep you updated on any forecast changes. What we know for sure is that MUCH cooler air will be here to start the week. By Tuesday highs will struggle to hit 40 degrees.
