Middle Tennessee to see freezing temps after round of storms. How cold it will get

Turbulent weather will soon give way to chilly temperatures for the next couple days before even more rain moves into Middle Tennessee.

Nashville and Middle Tennessee are under a wind advisory until noon Wednesday with gusts as high as 40 mph expected, the National Weather Service said.

"Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles," the weather service said. "Use extra caution."

Torrential rain storms should clear the region by 9 a.m. and move into the Cumberland Plateau. As the rain goes, so, too, will the warm weather.

Temperatures will plummet to below freezing overnight. The highs Thursday and Friday aren't expected to reach the mid-50s, the weather service said, but will warm back to up for the weekend.

In the coming week, highs will warm into the lower 70s.

"All in all, temperatures will be well above normal," the weather service said.
