Expect temperatures to be warm ahead of cold front

We’re starting this morning noticeably cooler than yesterday. You may be reaching for a light jacket as readings are as cool as the mid-40s across southern TN. South of the state line, it’s a mix of the upper 40s into the mid-50s. Skies are clear, and we’ll see plenty of sunshine this morning. You can expect temperatures to warm up quickly, and we should be into the upper 70s by noon.
