Happy Tuesday and I hope you are staying warm this morning. The low that brought rainfall and eventual snowfall yesterday has worked into New England. Official totals have not been released yet but I will get those out when the NWS provides it. Looking ahead, we'll look to dry back out today and tomorrow with high's staying well below average (upper 30's today & upper 40's tomorrow).
Model guidance continues to show some light snowfall into early this afternoon for the higher elevations of eastern Kentucky and northeastern Tennessee. Continuing through the day, gradual clearing will take place leaving clear skies and very cold temperatures overnight tonight and into Wednesday. For the most part, things stay dry now through the first half of Thursday before another low and trailing cold front bring reinforcing air. This next shot will more or less keep temperatures as is in the upper 40's to lower 50's through the weekend. In addition, we could see a few isolated showers to snow flurries before sunnier skies return late weekend and early next week.
As hinted in today's post title, the coldest day of the week is upon us. Though temperatures fell through the day yesterday, overnight low's will find themselves in the teens and lower 20's. Model guidance, seen below, is more conservative than what I am thinking. With clearing skies overnight I anticipate most elevated locations to be in the mid to upper teens and valley locations in the low 20's. Overall, it's going to be a very cold night so dress warm into Wednesday morning.
That will do it for today but stay warm overnight tonight. Low's for some will likely be in the mid to upper teens. If Secret City Weather can help you, let us know by visiting our "Services" tab above or shooting an email to SecretCityWx@aol.com
