A weak system is moving through the Clarksville area this morning bringing scattered rain showers that are freezing when making contact with the ground. This has caused the National Weather Service to continue the Winter Weather Advisory until noon today. Freezing rain is expected to continue until noon today, with up to two tenths of an inch of ice possible on colder objects. If you have to travel, please take caution as some areas may be slippery. Sunny skies will move back into the region tomorrow to start the weekend with temperatures near normal in the lower forties. A big warm up is in store for the beginning of the upcoming workweek as a strong storm system begins to develop in the plains. Isolated showers will develop on Monday, but high temperatures will be in the lower sixties. It is not until the middle of the upcoming workweek when the cold front moves through with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
