More Cold Air On The Way

More Cold Air Is On The Way

As Middle Tennessee Saw Its First Frost Early This Morning It Was A
Good Reminder That Fall Is Well Under Way And Freezing Temperatures
Are In The Not So Distant Future. Typically During This Time Of The
Year, Highs Are Around 70 And Lows Are Around 48.

We Have Experienced Below Normal Temperatures The Last Few Days And Will
Continue To See Cooler Temperatures Throughout The Coming Week As A
Trough Over The Eastern Us And Northwesterly Flow Push Cold Air
Masses Out Of Canada And Across The Ohio And Tennessee Valleys. As We
Head Through The Fall Season And The Days Grow Increasingly Cooler,
You Can Expect Freezing Temperatures To Also Become More Likely.

The First Time Freezing Temperatures Usually Occur In Middle Tn Is
Anywhere From Mid To Late October. Hickman County Has The Earliest
Average Freeze Date Of October 11th, While Nashville Has The Latest
Average Freeze Date Of October 28th. A Hard Freeze Is Not In The
Forecast Just Yet, But Parts Of The Mid State Could Definitely See
Temperatures Dip Briefly To Freezing By The End Of The Week.
