...COLDEST AIR OF THE SEASON THUS FAR TONIGHT AND TUESDAY...

AN UPPER LEVEL IMPULSE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE SOUTHEASTWARD ACROSS
THE MID STATE TONIGHT. AS THIS ENERGY INTERACTS WITH SOME RESIDUAL
LOWER LEVEL MOISTURE OVER THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU AREA...A CHANCE
OF SNOW SHOWERS EXISTS. GIVEN THE SUB FREEZING TEMPERATURES AND COLD
GROUND CONDITIONS...SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION OF AROUND ONE HALF INCH
WILL BE POSSIBLE. ROADWAYS MAY BECOME SNOW COVERED OVERNIGHT AND
THIS WILL MAKE FOR DANGEROUS DRIVING CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT THE
PLATEAU. MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO DRIVE WITH CAUTION AND STAY TUNED
FOR FURTHER UPDATES.

IN ADDITION TO THE POTENTIAL FOR SNOW...VERY COLD CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED. TEMPERATURES THIS EVENING WILL DROP INTO THE LOWER 20S
WITH THE MERCURY FALLING TO THE 10 TO 15 DEGREE RANGE BY SUNRISE.
EVEN WORSE...WIND SPEEDS OF 10 TO 15 MPH ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE.
THIS WILL CREATE WIND CHILL VALUES OF 10 TO 15 DEGREES THIS
EVENING...AND THEN ZERO TO 5 DEGREES ABOVE ZERO BY SUNRISE.

TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST THIS EARLY WINTER OUTBREAK OF VERY
COLD AIR...TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS. DRESS IN LAYERS AND WEAR A
HAT AND GLOVES. KEEP A FEW EXTRA BLANKETS IN THE TRUNK OF YOUR
CAR. COVER ANY EXPOSED PIPES OR OUTDOOR WATER SPIGOTS. CHECK ON
THE ELDERLY. KEEP A FEW OF THE INDOOR WATER FAUCETS DRIPPING TO
PREVENT PIPES FROM FREEZING. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST...CHECK ON
YOUR PETS AND BRING THEM INDOORS IF NEEDED.

THE COLD BLAST IS NOT EXPECTED TO LAST VERY LONG. WARMER TEMPERATURES
ARE EXPECTED WEDNESDAY WITH HIGHS BACK IN THE 40S. HIGHS THIS WEEKEND
ARE FORECAST TO BE IN THE 60S.
