I've never seen a flash freeze materialize here.

Yeah, flash freezing is quite rare everywhere and even more so in our neck of the woods.  The winds are going to be blowing hard with depoints dropping. Evaporation will happen quickly.  **** TDOT didnt even bother spraying brine this time in my neck of the woods

...Good Chance of Light Snow Accumulations Tonight...

An approaching cold front has brought rain showers into Middle TN,
but by early this evening, a cold air mass following the frontal
system will help to change the rain briefly to a rain/snow/sleet
mix and eventually over to all snow.

Snowfall accumulations are expected to be light, with up to around
an inch possible on the northern Cumberland Plateau, and a
dusting up to around a half inch elsewhere.


Travel impacts should be minimal west of the Cumberland Plateau.
However, some slick spots will be possible on area roadways,
especially on bridges and overpasses. Travel impacts will be
possible across the Plateau Tuesday morning due to slightly more
snowfall.

Wind chills may be one of the larger impacts Tuesday morning, with
low teen to single digit wind chills possible across all of
Middle TN.

All my misspelled words, typos, and grammatical errors, are intentional, and intended to troll and provoke.

Paducah office saying they are going to expand the WWA for their entire area. They say that colder air is moving in quicker than expected conditions should deteriorate after dark. Read it in the forecast discussion.  ::popcorn:: ::snowman::

I agree, I said it yesterday I think, most all of ky will get a nice wide area of 1-2 inches of snow,  they will have a lot more moisture when the cold air arrives than we will I think

If it can happen, this is the type of system that can do it as the dew points aren't going to crash immediately with the anafrontal element.  More over its more about the possibility of it happening somewhere in the CWA combined with falling frozen precip.

I remember a very distinct flash freeze event back in December 1989. If you don't remember, that was a frigidly cold month.

I was a freshman in high school, and it was during final exams before Christmas break. It was raining and in the 40s. An arctic front came crashing in, and the rain changed to sleet, and temps dropped quickly into the 20s. The water on the streets froze, and the area became a skating rink around Nashville. There were wrecks everywhere.

I remember that!  I lived in Charlotte park in West Nashville.  It took hours for my husband to get home from work.  That was a rough December!

I was a graduate student at Vanderbilt at the time.  I remember driving home to Arkansas the next day, and the radiator on my car froze just east of Memphis.  I nearly died trying to hitch a ride into Forrest City.  The air temperature was -2F at the time.  My hitching attempt was unsuccessful, and I was blown into a ditch by a semi.  Returning wet and rapidly freezing to the car, I discovered the radiator had thawed enough to restart the vehicle.  Over the next hour I slowly drove the car into Forrest City where I was able to call my Dad.

I don't care ever to relive that.   ::cold:: ::cold:: ::cold::

Thunderstorms over central Arkansas currently- that may be an issue for multiple precip types vs all snow for the small window later tonight.

Saw this and when I look at the rapid refresh models it shows some heavy precipitation in the frozen variety when it hits the MS river.  Might pull down some cold air and move up the predicted timeline for ice/snow :)

Maybe this thing over-performs.  Won't hurt my feelings at all.
