NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is preparing for its coldest temperatures in more than a decade as a mass of arctic air begins to move into the state.

The National Weather Service says it has been at least 15 years since temperatures have plunged to near zero. With wind chills factored in, it could feel like 15 below.

The National Weather Service says the arctic air is expected to hit the state on Sunday afternoon and remain through Tuesday.

Areas west of the plateau are expected to get 1 to 2 inches of snow while the upper Cumberland region and plateau could get 2 to 4 inches. Snowfall in West Tennessee is expected to be between 1 and 4 inches while much of East Tennessee will see between 1 and 3 inches.
