Cold and breezy today with a dry cool weekend ahead

Happy Friday! Bundle up, it is much colder out there this morning!

Skies are clearing and we are dry across the Tennessee Valley this morning, but it is MUCH colder across the Valley. Temperatures are into the 20s but the wind chills are even colder sitting into the low to mid teens. With this cold and areas of linger moisture from the last few weeks there could be some areas of patchy black ice this morning. Wind out of the north is strong this morning and should stay that way throughout the rest of the day today. Gusts of 15 to 25 mph are possible throughout the day today which will keep the “feels like” temperatures into the 30s through the afternoon. We will see plenty of sunshine just not much warmth.

The cold continues overnight tonight but the one blessing is that we will see much calmer winds. That means that frost is more likely to start Saturday. Temperatures will be into the 20s again, but a light wind means there won’t be much of a chill. Temperatures Saturday and Sunday will be into the mid 50s. Sunshine continues Saturday but Sunday brings more clouds and then possibly more rain late in the day. Rain is more likely for Monday with warmer temperatures before a blast of cold to end the month of February.
