In the week before the new year, expect chillier than average temps with a mixture of sunshine and clouds.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Larry Vannozzi said the weekend will bring a 20 to 30 percent chance of snow, beginning Saturday night.

“We’ve got a little bit of moisture coming up from the south,” Vannozzi said. He said he did not anticipate much precipitation, but that the weather service will be monitoring the storm system closely this week.

For the rest of the week, the weather will be in the 30s and 20s, dipping into the teens at night.

Vannozzi said the weather pattern is below average for this time of year, even the highs.

“We’re looking at highs in the 30s,” he said.

For New Year’s Eve, be sure to pack a warm coat if you’re going out; the low Sunday night will be in the teens, and could be in the single digits for Nashville, with a 20 percent chance of snow.
