Hard Re-Freeze Tonight

The weather on Wednesday will be tranquil, but on the chilly side but not chilly enough to continue the snow melting process. A hard re-freeze is expected tonight as temps fall back deep into the 20's. Watch out for icy and slick roads. Expect dry weather through Thursday daytime, before rain returns late Thursday night, lasting into at least a portion of Saturday. With the considerable snowpack, 1 to 2 inches of rain could result in some areas of flooding.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure and sunny skies lead to some snowmelt this afternoon. Under mostly clear skies tonight, expect a hard re-freeze as temperatures drop deep into the 20s.

Wednesday and Thursday will be dry but with considerable high cloudiness streaming across our skies.

Low-pressure will be developing over the southern Plains on Thursday and headed ENE toward the Tennessee Valley on Friday. A warm front will lift northward through the area on Friday with steady rain expected. A trailing upper level low will lumber through on Saturday, keeping rainfall going. A two-day rainfall total of 1-2 inches is expected, and with that rain falling on the dense snowpack, flooding could present a problem.

It looks like we will get some welcome drying on Sunday, with fair weather with us for the beginning of the new workweek.
