Here we go, people! Its that time of year again where we are going to talk about the cold temps outside. I know that we haven’t been used to this for a while (mainly since 2015) but we’re going to have some arctic air moving into our area overnight/in the morning.

Per the NWS:

..Arctic Blast to Impact Mid State over the New Years Holiday
Weekend…

An arctic cold front moved through the mid-state on Saturday
morning, with much colder air now beginning to spread across the area
through the remainder of the holiday weekend. Low temperatures
will reach down into the teens on Sunday morning and will
only warm into the low to mid-20s during the day. Then, on
New Years Day, lows will range from 6 to 11 degrees with highs ranging
from 18 to 22 degrees across Middle Tennessee.

Adding to the bone-chilling cold will be the very low wind chill
values. Wind speeds of 10 to 15 mph will equate to wind chills in
the single digits to lower teens during the day on Sunday. Later that
evening, winds will persist with wind chill values dropping down
below zero with some locations approaching minus 5 degrees by
midnight. By around sunrise on New Years Day, wind chills will range
from zero degrees to minus 8 degrees below zero. A wind
chill advisory is in effect from 10 PM CST Sunday until 9 AM CST
New Years Day for all of Middle Tennessee. Cold temperatures will continue
into Monday night where Middle Tennessee will experience wind
chill values of minus 5 to minus 8 degrees around sunrise.
Another wind chill advisory will likely be issued for the mid
evening hours of Monday night into the mid-morning hours on
Tuesday also.

If venturing outdoors during the holiday weekend, be sure to wear
multiple layers of clothing. Consider bringing any pets indoors and
check on neighbors, elderly, and homeless. Also, be sure to take
the necessary precautions regarding the protection of water pipes
from the cold.

That’s right folks. This is going to get crazy. Tonight forecast

For tonight we’re expecting the temps to be in the mid-teens and possibly colder in low-lying areas.

The Highs will never get out of the freezing mark tomorrow as the arctic air pushes through and the wind begins to howl, then the temps will be in the teens and single digits due to the wind chill. Remember, if you are going to go outside or be at the NYE in downtown Nashville, to wear appropriate clothing. I am also including a link to signs of hypothermia just in case people do not know the symptoms.
