You know it’s getting colder when you see scenes like the one above in the weather photo sent to us by Ken & Yvonne Harris at a.m. FOG in Afton. Ken says they unloaded all of their Christmas trees on Friday. Don’t you just love this time of year!

We’re still doing weather from the road this weekend on a trip back into Western Tennessee near Memphis.

Friday night was the coldest night yet. Temperatures dropped into the teens in the valley and mid teens mountains. Up at Wintergreen Resort they started making snow Friday afternoon. See associated story and pics by clicking here. Saturday was a fairly chilly day across Nelson, with valley temps only making it into the 40’s for afternoon highs and on the mountain our NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation station made it up to a high of 33° around 11:20 AM Saturday morning. Their morning low was a very cold 15°. Saturday night look for clouds to increase and temps to not be as cold at Saturday morning’s. Sunday we’ll see some breaks of the clouds but I expect more clouds than sun in advance of the next system moving our way bringing rain Sunday night into Monday night. We are seeing signs of the same system here in Western TN right now. Sleet Saturday morning, as the system moves east toward Nelson rain will develop late in the weekend. I still cannot rule out some frozen precipitation on the mountain as the rain begins, but warmer air will begin moving in by Monday morning changing to all rain.

Temperatures moderate a bit for the first part of the week, cooling slightly again by mid week.
