You May Not Like These Predictions About Nashville’s Freezing Cold Upcoming Winter
Winter in Nashville always seems to be a toss up, doesn’t it? If you live in Music City, it seems that we go from one season in the morning to an entirely new one at night. No one seems to know where autumn ends and winter begins, and the chilly months stretch straight through to summer sometimes. Once we heard that the Old Farmer’s Almanac had released their predictions for our pretty city this winter, we HAD to check it out. Ready to take a look?
Nashville, Tennessee is located in what is known as the Deep South region. It includes states such as Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi.
Neighboring regions include the Heartland region, Ohio Valley, Appalachians and Texas-Oklahoma. Predictions are made per region every year, so we decided to dig deep and check out Tennessee for the 2017-2018 winter season.
Here it comes: Winter, 2017? Is going to be a chilly one. It is predicted that we will have lower than normal temperatures, coupled with higher snowfall that begins in mid-December and carries through to the early part of March.
The nice thing is, we may have a white Christmas...? But we'll have to deal with the freezing temps and snowy streets through the beginning of springtime.
Snow is predicted to fall through all four months of winter, which gives us flashbacks to the Polar Vortex of 2014 and Nashville's Snowpocalypse of 2015. Were you in the city when the whole place shut down...? Schools and work were closed for days to keep citizens safe.
The strange precipitation rates will continue through to spring, as April and May are said to have colder temperatures than what is normal for the region and higher rates of rain. Will we have a spring this year, or will it just be swallowed by the ravenous ache of winter? We'll just have to see.
What do you think about the weather predictions for this winter? Do you think they are spot on after our heated summer, or do you think we're bound to have a mild winter? These are just educated guesses after all, so we're interested to hear yours! Leave your thoughts in the comments below, friends. We may just use them for another article - once winter actually hits, of course.
Do you believe that this beautiful lake is the coldest in Tennessee…?
