Few Snow Flurries-Wind Advisory Extended | News
The cold air is blowing in along with a disturbance that is shaking out a few snow flurries in Tennessee and North Alabama. Some of those flurries are extending into north Georgia. Not all that you see on radar is actually hitting the ground. Much of this is evaporating as it falls. We will continue to watch this disturbance move toward the south and east through early evening. There will be a few flurries that fall with this. We won't see any accumulations. Maybe just a dusting on some grassy surfaces. This also won't cause any travel problems. Any moisture that hits the ground will dry up quickly with the strong winds as temperatures fall to below freezing tonight.
The Wind Advisory has been extended until 10pm. It was supposed to expire at 7pm. The strong wind will continue through the evening blowing in from the NW at 15-25mph with higher gusts at times. That wind will give us some cold wind chills. Even though the wind will slow a little by morning, we will still have 10-15mph winds with our temperatures around 25 by Sunday morning. That will give us wind chills in the teens and even some single digits. This will be the coldest air so far of the season. The coldest that we've been so far this year is 29 degrees on February 2nd.
Sunday afternoon will be only slightly warmer. We will top off at 48 degrees with plenty of sunshine. Monday will be about 10 degrees warmer with a high of 58. The next rain system will move in Tuesday. That will even have the chance for a few thundershowers. Right now, it doesn't look like it will produce any severe weather.
