A gusty northwest wind is bringing colder air into the Clarksville area and is expected to change the precipitation that is falling this morning to a light snow. Little to no snow accumulation is expected as the snow moves through, but there may be a few slick spots throughout the day as the cold air moves in. Lows overnight tonight are expected to be very cold as they will be in the middle teens. This is not the coldest air of the season though as a strong blast of arctic air is expected to move into the region Saturday night into Sunday. This system is expected to bring rain and snow showers to the region overnight Saturday, before changing to a period of snow during the day Sunday. The big item with this system is the cold weather as overnight lows on Sunday into Monday morning are expected to be in the upper single digits, with lows near zero overnight Monday into Tuesday.
