Warm Weather Sets Records in Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Several cities in Tennessee had record high temperatures over the weekend. Most of the records broke those set during a mild spell in 1952.

Nashville's high of 73 degrees on Sunday broke the previous record of 71 degrees. Memphis hit 77 degrees, breaking a record of 74. Chattanooga hit 74 degrees, breaking a record of 70.

The National Weather Service says temperatures were expected to stay in the low 60s on Monday, with the possibility of shattering another record on Tuesday.

A cold front is expected to drop high temperatures into the low 50s later this week, which is about average.
