An interesting weather pattern is taking place this week over the Clarksville area. Temperatures today and tomorrow are expected to be very warm as highs will be in the middle to upper sixties under partly to mostly cloudy skies. There is a chance for a few sprinkles as the warm, moist air comes in from the gulf, but the large area of rain will not move through until Thursday and Friday. This rain is associated with a strong cold front that is expected to push through the area. Temperatures will drop thirty to forty degrees by Saturday as highs will be in the thirties thus weekend. Before the cold weekend though, a wave will move along the front Friday bringing precipitation to the region. This precipitation though is expected to start as rain, but then mix with and change to sleet and snow by the evening. At this time, little to no snow accumulation is expected, but this forecast will be fined tuned as the week moves on.
