It is looking cooler across Middle Tennessee this week, certainly lower temperatures than we had last week with that beautiful summer-like weather.

Halloween seems to be the holiday with the most extreme differences in temperature from year to year. It comes at the time of year when winter air masses are trying to push the warmer weather out of the country.

On Halloween 2016 the temperature hit the mid-80s, but we had snowflakes on Halloween in 1993 and 2014. 

The time change is coming soon as we set the clocks back one hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1.
