Weather Update: Tuesday Afternoon’s Forecast – February 16th, 2021

Tennessee Valley (WDEF):  Showers Moving Out, Very Cold Air Moving In !

After an icy start, decreasing clouds and drier for Tuesday but it’ll take awhile for these lingering flurries and snow showers to end. We should have some limited afternoon sunshine.  It will stay quite cold with highs around the freezing mark of 32 degrees. Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday Morning, you can count on another hard freeze all across the News 12 Now viewing area, with lows close to 20 by Wednesday morning.

Increasing clouds for Wednesday but continued dry and not as cold with highs back in the mid and upper 40’s.   Showers return Wednesday night with more rain through Thursday morning before ending around lunchtime,  Another cold snap for the end of the week but sunshine will come back and by Sunday afternoon,  highs will be back in the 50’s.

* Impacts…Very Slippery Sidewalks, Roads And Bridges Are
Possible. The Hazardous Conditions Could Impact The Morning

55 & 34 are our seasonal highs and lows. The seasonal afternoon highs, as well as the early morning lows, are getting a little milder.

We’re getting into the time to discuss freeze watches and warnings: Whenever you hear about those watches and warnings, remember a few things that could save you time, money, and a lot of headaches:  Pets should be brought inside. Cover above-ground pipes, and protect all sensitive vegetation. Check on your neighbors and the elderly. In really, REALLY cold temperatures, make sure and open cabinet doors that face exterior walls, and allow a thin stream of water about the size of a pencil lead to run from the faucet farther away from where the water enters your home.

Make sure you & your family stay in touch with us. Remember the Storm Team 12 app can always bring you the latest weather alerts for your location as well as Titan Radar. Download it for free from your app store – just search WDEF Weather”.
