Bitter cold temperatures settle in across middle Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An arctic cold front has pushed across middle Tennessee Sunday evening, ushering in the coldest air of the season.

Temperatures fell to the low teens, and even into single digits, by Monday morning with wind chills around -5 degrees with gusts reaching 15 mph.

Monday’s temperatures will not get above freezing, only reaching the mid to upper 20s despite a good deal of sunshine.

It will be clear and very cold Monday night with lows on Tuesday morning again in the upper single digits to low teens.

Tuesday will have sunshine followed by increasing clouds and highs getting just above freezing in the afternoon.

With the cold air in place, the next system could bring a wintry mix of snow, sleet or freezing rain to Middle Tennessee by Wednesday morning before rapidly changing to mostly rain during the day.

It does not appear to be a major storm that will cause travel issues. Click here for the latest forecast.

Nashville-area shelters are prepared to accept anyone looking to get in out of the cold. The Nashville Rescue Mission is located at 639 Lafayette Street, open 24 hours a day and no one will be turned away.

There is a separate shelter for women and children located at 1716 Rosa L. Parks Blvd.
