A cold front has moved through the Clarksville area overnight Saturday and temperatures are expected to drop as the rain continues. A secondary system will move through south-central Tennessee overnight Sunday bringing more moisture back into the region. The moisture is expected to start as rain Sunday afternoon and then will change to sleet and snow overnight Sunday. The snow is expected to cause some slick spots on roadways Monday morning and final snowfall totals of 1 to 3 inches are expected. Temperatures will remain in the forties for Monday as sunny skies are expected to shine, especially in the afternoon. Another surge of warm air will move in on Tuesday ahead of the next system that is expected to bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region. Most of the precipitation with this system will remain as rain until Wednesday morning when the cold air behind this front will cause a mixture of rain and snow to fall before all is said and done.
