Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee
152 am CST sun Dec 28 2014

Discussion...current surface map shows the cold front working its
way through middle Tennessee, with still some Post-frontal
precipitation in the cooler air upstream. Latest NAM solution
shows plenty of moisture left to come through during the day, so
will keep high pop's in the forecast for today and scattered pop's
most areas this evening. Qpf's are relatively low, with the
greatest amounts along the plateau, and lesser amounts across the
remainder of middle Tennessee. Look for the precipitation to move
out by Monday morning, with much cooler temperatures awaiting at
the start of the week. Both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) continue to bring a
dry surface front southward across the middle state on Wednesday,
bringing US an even colder Arctic air mass to carry US to the end
of the week. The next active system will begin advecting moisture
into middle Tennessee Thursday night, and precipitation could
start off as sleet given the cold temperatures. Precipitation will
be all rain from Friday through the weekend as the upper flow
turns sw'ly and temperatures warm up ahead of the upper trough.
