By Monday afternoon, temperatures are expected to have lows in the teens that feel like they're in the single digits.
Cold weather's already been a major concern in the local homeless community this season, with homeless advocates marching for more warming centers and cheaper housing for the less fortunate Friday. The event came two weeks after a homeless man, James Fulmer, died of hypothermia on the steps of an east Nashville church.
Head Chaplain of the Nashville Rescue Mission Ed Grimes said he's asking Metro police to do extra welfare checks of the homeless community while the threats of cold weather are this high.
"To all of our organizations out there that serves the homeless, just be a little extra alert and vigilant," said Grimes. "If you do see somebody, certainly report that."
Also worried about the dropping temperatures are some residents of Waverly who suffered through last weekend's flooding.
"The big concern now is getting heating units back that was under water," said neighbor Betty Jo Tate. "Everyone on this side is still suffering from it. I don't know how long it takes for air units to dry out, but they had to go stay with their families for a few days because there's no heat."
No matter what the situation, Grimes said the weather on Monday will be far too cold to brave it without heat and shelter.
"It's going to be nothing to play with," said Grimes. "Anyone who thinks they can go through these cold temperatures, it's not a possibility there."
