Sunny skies are over Clarksville this morning as high pressure moves over the region. Temperatures today will be near average, in the lower fifties. The nice conditions will not last long as a strong system will move through the region tomorrow. This system will start bringing scattered showers and a few thunderstorms to the area tomorrow afternoon and will last through much of the evening. The storms this time around are not expected to become severe, but some gusty winds and heavy rain is possible. The winds will also pick up as this system moves through the region. Temperatures will stay mild through the duration of the storm and into the day on Monday as temperatures will be in the upper fifties.
Cold air does not start to make its way into the region until Tuesday when the next system begins to pull the cooler air in. Temperatures during the day will struggle to reach fifty, and will be below freezing overnight. Some precipitation is also expected when this system moves in, mostly in the form of rain showers, but mixing with sleet overnight. Looking to the rest of the workweek, temperatures will return back to near average before a strong push of cold air comes for next weekend.
