A strong system will slowly start to make its way into the region today bringing mostly cloudy skies and a few showers to the region. Temperatures are expected to be warm, in the lower seventies, but this will not last long as this cold front moves through. The risk for precipitation will increase Thursday and the rain could be heavy at times. Total rainfall amounts by Friday could be in the one to two inch range. Temperatures will drop through Friday and will drop enough on Friday for the rain to mix with and change to a period of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Total snow and ice accumulations by Saturday morning may be in the one to two inch range. As always with any winter weather system across the southeast region of the United States, this forecast will be adjusted as Clarksville lays on the transition line between all rain and wintry precipitation.
