More Freezing Rain Expected This Afternoon

Weather Update: Tuesday, January 31 —

Good Morning West Tennessee. it remains quite cold and cloudy this morning. the first round of precipitation has left us with generally between .1″ and .3″ of ice accretion this morning. Now we are between waves. the next wave is already  developing in NE Texas as of this morning and will move ENE thru this morning arriving here in West Tennessee by this afternoon. Meanwhile at the surface arctic high pressure is migrating from around Omaha, NE to the middle Ohio Valley. While it transitions it is pushing the deeper portions of the arctic air mass south into West Tennessee. There will be a bit of a tug-o-war between the arctic air mass and the mid level jet trying to warm temps. The result locally will be near stable temps between 28-31°F through this afternoon. There wont be much of an opportunity to rise above freezing to melt some of the ice that has developed before the second wave arrives…
