We've experienced a 25 degree drop in temperatures over the past 24 hours thanks to a cold front that brought many locations over an inch of rain on Tuesday. Cooler air will conitnue to sweep over the Tennessee Valley on Wednesday, causing cold and cloudy conditions. High temperatures will only climb into the upper 40's for highs with overnight lows down near the freezing mark. We look to see the same for Thursday.
On Friday an upper level low will reinforce another blast of cool and dry air into the Valley. Although we'll see some sunshine don't be fooled, temperatures will only climb into the upper 30's with the wind chill making it feel like it's into the lower 30's during the afternoon.
Going into Saturday's forecast there is still some uncertainty on whether or not we'll see flurries Saturday morning. Our weather model guidance is suggesting very limited moisture will push into the Valley between 7AM-Noon, but the main energy of the upper level low will stay well to the North of the Valley that would help produce the flurries. Overall, I'd say don't keep your hopes up for seeing flurries, but if they did occur, the higher elevations of Northeast Alabama and Southern Tennessee would have the best potential. We'll be yet again below average with high temperatures in the mid 40's on Saturday and Sunday, with more sunshine expected for Sunday.
