Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Nashville TN
617 PM CDT Wed Mar 21 2018




Strong northwest flow is keeping a lid on temperatures this
afternoon. Even across western Middle Tennessee where they`ve
gotten some sun, temperatures are only in the upper 40`s as of
this writing. Meanwhile, light snow and flurries continue over
the Cumberland Plateau, where accumulations of 3 to 6 inches have
been reported in some spots. Look for clouds to gradually pull
eastward with the upper low tonight as temperatures once again
drop below freezing most areas. In fact, readings will likely be
colder than last night, so we have one more night of this freeze
warning before temperatures start to warm back up tomorrow. By
00Z, the surface ridge will be on top of Middle Tennessee, and
tomorrow night and Friday, look for a warm front to develop across
the mid state as deep low pressure comes together over the
Central Plains. So look for rain to work its way back into the
forecast as we head into the weekend, especially Friday night
through Saturday night. POP`s will drop off by Sunday, but a
series of waves/fronts/impulses will keep rain in the forecast for
most of next week. Temperatures will level off at or slightly
above seasonal norms starting on Saturday. Although the weather
pattern remains active, there doesn`t seem to be much chance of
severe storms at least though next Wednesday.



Gusty northwest winds will calm down this evening to be between 5
and 10 knots, and that looks to be the trend through the day
tomorrow. KCSV is seeing VFR cigs currently, with MVFR vis. This
will improve through the evening, and all terminals will be VFR
through the afternoon tomorrow before clouds move in from the
northwest Thursday evening.


Freeze Warning from 1 AM to 9 AM CDT Thursday for Bedford-Cannon-
