7:00 AM | **Extreme cold headed into the central/eastern US...accumulating snow likely here late tonight/early Tuesday**

Paul Dorian

*Extreme cold is headed to the north-central US – potentially historic for places like Chicago - and it will spread to the east coast by mid-week*. A large scale trough will form in the eastern US over the next couple of days and it’ll lead to chilly weather around here. A strong cold front will pass through the region later tonight and Tuesday as low pressure slides through the Great Lakes. Rain is likely to change to accumulating snow toward daybreak and continue into early Tuesday with possible accumulations of 1-3 inches. Highs for much of the rest of the week should be way below normal for the Tennessee Valley and much of the central and eastern US.

7:00 Am | *Still well below-normal today with temperatures confined to the 30's*

Paul Dorian

Cold air remains in control around here for another day as temperatures likely hold in the 30’s for highs despite some sunshine. A warming trend will begin on Saturday and likely early next week with highs back in the 50’s on Sunday and Monday, but another cold front arrives by mid-week. That cold front may usher in much colder air for the middle of next week in the Tennessee Valley and the Upper Midwest/Great Lakes are likely to experience brutally cold conditions.

12:00 PM | **Brutally cold air mass likely to invade the central US next week and then spread to the east coast**

Paul Dorian

All signs point to the invasion of a brutally cold air mass into the central US next week that will make its way to the east coast around mid-week.  This upcoming Arctic air outbreak looks quite similar to the air mass that impacted the central and eastern US during January 1985 which followed a major stratospheric warming event - much like what we have just experienced over the past several weeks.  This kind of air mass has the potential of becoming quite a news making event for the Upper Midwest/Great Lakes/Northern Plains and could result in actual air temperatures as severe as 25 degrees below zero in Chicago – awfully close to the all-time low of -27°F set in January 1985.

7:00 Am | *Another cold shot has arrived in the Tennessee Valley and another one is destined for next week*

Paul Dorian

Another widespread cold air mass will impact the Tennessee Valley over the next few days as high pressure builds to the southeast from Canada. Highs today will struggle to reach the mid 40’s and there will be a noticeable wind chill caused by 10-15 mph NW winds. As the high pressure edges closer to the region, the cold blast will become even more noticeable as temperatures tonight will drop way down into the 20’s and struggle to reach the mid 30’s on Friday – normal high is now around 52 degrees.

2:30 PM | **Widespread cold later this week will have its coldest core over southern Canada, but the brunt of next week’s brutal cold air outbreak is headed right into the central and eastern US**

Paul Dorian

Despite the fact that it’ll turn unseasonably mild later tonight and early Thursday in much of the eastern US, the overall cold weather pattern shows no signs of slowing down.  There will be another outbreak of cold air in the eastern US for the Thursday night/Friday/Saturday time period, but the coldest core of that air mass (relative-to-normal) will be centered over south-central and southeastern Canada.  Next week, however, it looks like a brutally cold air mass will plunge southward right into the central US and eventually make its way to the east coast - and the coldest temperatures relative-to-normal will be in the US.

7:00 AM | *Another round of showers headed our way*

Paul Dorian

After a very cold day to start the week, it’ll turn milder ahead of the next low pressure system and the winds will pick up in intensity out of the southeast. Showers are likely by early tonight and the threat will continue through mid-week. Colder air will follow for the latter part of the week and snow showers will be possible each day as we head towards the weekend.

7:00 AM | *Cold start to the week...low pressure impacts the region by mid-week*

Paul Dorian

Very cold air poured into the eastern US this weekend and we’ll start the week on a cold note in the Tennessee Valley. It’ll stay rain-free for today and at least the first part of tomorrow, but a storm will be intensifying as it moves eastward from the middle part of the nation. Rain is likely to push into the local region by mid-week and there could be a decent amount as this system has quite a bit of upper-level support.

7:00 Am | *Passage of powerful cold front drops temperatures from 60's on Saturday to 30's on Sunday*

Paul Dorian

Strong low pressure will head right towards the Tennessee valley early this weekend and then to the Mid-Atlantic coastline by early Sunday. Given this track, it should turn noticeably warmer around here on Saturday, but then much colder on Saturday night and Sunday following the passage of a powerful cold front that sweeps through here on the back side of the departing low pressure system. High on Saturday ahead of the front are likely to be in the 60’s and then confined to the 30’s to close out the weekend.

7:00 AM | *Powerful cold front to sweep through the Tennessee Valley this weekend*

Paul Dorian

It’ll turn milder over the next couple of days, but the end of the warming trend is already in sight as a powerful cold front will sweep through the area this weekend. In fact, the weather on Saturday will become quite active for the eastern third of the nation as a strong cold front slowly works its way to the eastern seaboard. Rain is likely here on Saturday and there can be a thunderstorm or two and it’ll become quite mild. On Sunday, however, the temperatures are likely to plunge on the back side of a departing strong low pressure system and the fresh batch of Arctic air will keep us well below-normal on Monday as well as begin the new work week.
