...Winter-like conditions to affect the mid state this weekend...
A powerful cold front will move across middle Tennessee on Friday and usher in winter-like conditions to the mid state for the upcoming weekend...with freezing temperatures expected both Friday and Saturday nights...and some light snow even possible on Friday night across the northern Cumberland Plateau.
For Halloween...scattered rain showers are expected during the day as the cold front moves through the region...with highs topping out in the 50s. Festivities on Friday evening can expect chilly temperatures falling through the 40s...gusty northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph...and a few light rain showers.
By Friday night...temperatures dropping into the 30s will allow for the light rain to mix with and changeover to some light snow on the northern Cumberland Plateau. Areas from Monterey to Jamestown could even see a dusting of snow. Much heavier snow is expected across east Tennessee on Friday night and Saturday...so if traveling in that direction this weekend prepare for snowy conditions.
Temperatures below freezing are expected across northern and eastern middle Tennessee on Friday night...with lows falling into the low to mid 30s. Highs will only rise into the 40s to around 50 Saturday afternoon...before temperatures fall into the upper 20s to around 30 throughout the area Saturday night.
Freeze warnings will likely be required for parts of middle Tennessee on Friday night...and for all of middle Tennessee on Saturday night. Plan ahead now to protect any sensitive outdoor plants and animals from the upcoming cold this weekend.
