Windy and Cold for the First Day of Spring

Weather Update – 10:45 p.m. – Monday

Winds are picking up and changing direction with an area of low pressure over West Tennessee, but temperatures will respond to incoming colder air on Tuesday. There’s only a slight chance for rain overnight with cloudy skies overnight. Temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 40s but will feel like the 30s with winds from the northwest by sunrise tomorrow.

The first day of spring is tomorrow and the new season officially begins with the vernal equinox at 11:15 a.m. Central Daylight Time! It certainly won’t feel like spring at all though. We’ll be starting out with wind chills in the 30s in the morning, and don’t expect to see much sunshine! Temperatures be falling throughout the day with wind chills in the middle 30s during the afternoon and with a potential for scattered rain showers.

Light snow showers may mix in over northwest Tennessee late in the morning and early afternoon too, but don’t expect much accumulation – only a dusting will be possible on grassy surfaces in northwest Tennessee which should melt quickly if we get any accumulation at all.
