Limited time left with the sunshine wintry weather returns

Earlier indications of a freeze have been trimmed back based on latest models, but could happen if we clear out. Clouds will increase throughout the day today, and temperatures will climb into the mid 40s. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s, with sunny to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be slightly warmer than today in the upper 40's to lower 50's. Expect ponding on area roads and some low-lying areas may have standing water by late-week. Rainfall amounts are expected to remain light, generally a tenth of an inch of rain or so. The low Saturday night is 46. Temperatures will also be a little cooler.

Tuesday will be warm and breezy/windy with partly to mostly cloudy skies and isolated morning showers.

The front will finally begin to migrate east, bringing solid rain to middle Tennessee, and a few showers to the Tennessee Valley on Wednesday.

"There is concern for some hazardous travel conditions, particularly for the Monday morning commute, as things will be ramping up", he said.

Off and on rain showers will continue tonight, with precipitation gradually diminishing through Wednesday morning. Unsettled? Yes. Washouts or big storms? No. Showers and storms will look to become widespread along a stalled frontal boundary beginning Wednesday afternoon and lasting overnight into Thursday. We could see some rain start to move in overnight Sunday, but for now we're keeping the rain chance off the board through the weekend.

This next system is expected to last through Easter Sunday. The afternoon will have more sunshine with highs approaching the upper 70s.

Monday will be the warmest day of the week with temperatures reaching as high as nine degrees Celsius, according to DMI's forecast.
