Sunday and Monday morning there is a possibility of a Freeze Warning being issued by the National Weather Service.

Regardless of whether or not it rains for part of Wednesday, that cold front should bring a shot of chillier air but also drier weather for Thanksgiving itself on Thursday.

Timing... Strongest winds will occur between midnight and 8am tonight into Sunday morning. Winds gusting up to 25 miles per hour. A couple inches of snow are possible. Strong area of low pressure will sweep through the area today - bringing not only rain, but wind gusts potentially up to 40-50mph. If some of these thunderstorms produce massive downdrafts, we could very well see above severe wind criteria (58 miles per hour or greater). A few residual showers can't be ruled out Sunday morning as the leftover moisture from the storms moves east.

But Storm Team 4 warns to watch out for the wind, which could gust up to 50 miles per hour.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy, breezy and colder.

There will be numerous snow showers today with up to 4 inches of snow possible.

Thanksgiving Day is expected to be mostly sunny with a high of about 45.

Warm south winds and more sunshine should help raise temperatures to a high near 74 on Tuesday, forecasters said.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear skies and chilly temperatures continue, with a low temperature of 32 degrees. Tornado formation is possible over Southern Middle Tennessee, and portions of Northwest and North Central Alabama - mainly north of the Tennessee River and west of the Interstate 65 corridor.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, a blast of polar air is expected to produce some of the coldest temperatures so far this season in the Great Lakes region and in places such as upstate NY and Pennsylvania, Rose said.
