.DISCUSSION...
HOPE EVERYONE WAS ABLE TO GET OUT AND ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL DAY ACROSS
THE TN VALLEY WITH SEASONABLE TEMPS IN THE MID/UPPER 50S AND MOSTLY
SUNNY SKIES. THIS WEEK WILL FEEL LIKE WINTER AGAIN AS COLDER TEMPS
AND SNOW ARE BACK IN THE FORECAST STARTING MONDAY AS THE UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS DIGS INTO THE SOUTHEAST.

TONIGHT...CLOUDS WILL INCREASE AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT APPROACHING
FROM THE NW. TOWARDS MIDNIGHT...RAIN CHANCES INCREASE AS ONE OF
SEVERAL DISTURBANCES MOVE INTO THE REGION. RAIN WILL LINGER INTO
MONDAY MORNING WITH HI RES MODEL DATA SUGGESTING A BREAK IN THE RAIN
BEFORE THE TRANSITION TO RAIN/SNOW MIX BEGINS IN THE AFTERNOON.
PRECIP WILL CHANGE OVER TO ALL SNOW MONDAY EVENING AS THE COLD FRONT
PUSHES THROUGH BRINGING MUCH COLDER AIR WITH IT. ON TUESDAY...HIGH
TEMPS WILL BE BITTER COLD IN THE 30S...WHICH ARE VALUES NORMALLY
AROUND OUR SEASONAL LOWS! THIS WILL BE COLD ENOUGH TO SUPPORT LIGHT
SNOW AS PRECIP EXITS FROM WEST TO EAST OUT OF THE FORECAST AREA BY
TUESDAY AFTERNOON. BREEZY CONDITIONS MONDAY AND TUESDAY WILL ALSO
PLAY A ROLE ON WIND CHILLS DURING THE DAY. AS FOR
NIGHTTIME...MONDAY...TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...WINDCHILL VALUES WILL
RANGE FROM THE SINGLE DIGITS TO THE TEENS...SO BE SURE TO BUNDLE UP!

WITH MILD DAYTIME TEMPS RECENTLY...WARM SOIL TEMPS MAY HELP LIMIT
SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS. AS OF RIGHT NOW WITH THIS FORECAST
PACKAGE...HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND LOCATIONS NORTH OF A LINE FROM
FAYETTEVILLE...TO SCOTTSBORO...AND NEAR FORT PAYNE HAVE THE BEST
CHANCES FOR SNOW SHOWERS WITH LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS UP TO HALF OF AN
INCH POSSIBLE. GIVEN THE SCATTERED NATURE OF THE SNOW
SHOWERS...LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION IS POSSIBLE ELSEWHERE THROUGHOUT
THE FORECAST AREA.

TEMPS WILL START TO REBOUND BACK TO NORMAL STARTING MIDWEEK WITH
TEMPS IN THE MID/UPPER 40S. NEXT CHANCE FOR PRECIP IS ON FRIDAY
NIGHT WITH A SHORTWAVE MOVING THROUGH. THERE COULD BE A CHANCE FOR
FROZEN PRECIP...BUT NOT ENOUGH MODEL CONSISTENCY AT THIS TIME SO DID
NOT INCLUDE IT WITH THIS FORECAST PACKAGE.
