As a matter of fact, it hasn't happened since January 23, 2003, when the high was only 18, that sandwiched around higher temps on the days before and after. Currently, 01/04, Channel 10 is predicting a high of 21 and 23 on Monday and Tuesday respectively, while Channel 8 is predicting only 19 and 18. Two consecutive days that cold would be highly unusual. January of 2010, If I remember correctly, was about the seventh coldest January ever, or close to it, and even then it wasn't that cold on two consecutive days.

We'll be there Tuesday, sounds like it's going to be interesting. Just as a side note we lived in NW Montana for about 10 years so cold is nothing new, we've still got all of our chilly weather gear.
The great part for y'all is it doesn't last for months on end, I'll bet we'll be out of our heavy coats before we leave.
Hope everyone has their pipes wrapped or water dripping and whatever plants they want to survive lit up and covered!

No, it doesn't normally last long at all, in fact, the long range forecast for next Saturday is 60. That said, long range forecasting accuracy "can" drop off markedly after about three days, in the wintertime. I think the Monday-Tuesday "really cold" scenario is supposed to be a couple of days.

Oh! You are right! Those are the lows at night.

We might be getting some snow, possibly a few inches from Sunday night to Monday. That, around here, is a blizzard and the grocery store reflected that, tonight. And of course, I was there, too!

That always cracked us up when we lived in various areas of the south. People running to the store/Costco emptying the shelves of bread,milk and cereal like it was going to be a week or two long blizzard instead of a 1 or 2 day event of an inch (or less) of snow. You'd think a gallon or two of milk and maybe a loaf of bread would get everyone through at least 3-4 days unless they're planning on handing out sandwiches and cups of milk to everyone in the neighborhood.
Now I could see a run on coffee and cocoa and maybe some schnapps (of course for medicinal purposes brrrrrr).

I know my wife who loves (loved) the cold is nervous about how she'll feel now that we've lived in AZ for the last 3 years where 60 degrees is considered "freezing" by many (we've been in mid 70's for the last couple of weeks btw)

Absolutely! If you're living more than 5-10 miles from a store on rural roads I understand and I'd do somewhat the same thing. Is that the norm in the Knoxville area? I know it wasn't in all the other areas we've lived.
