Middle Tennessee woke up to snow this morning, and though original forecasts had it snowing through midnight it looks like the winter storm has all but passed Middle Tennessee.

Snow may begin around 3 or 4 p.m., but be lighter than this morning, and not last nearly as long. Here is a radar capture from 1 p.m.

NWS ADVISORY: BY NOON TODAY…SNOW TOTALS OF ONE TO THREE INCHES WERE COMMON OVER MUCH OF THE ADVISORY AREA. PATCHY LIGHT SNOW WILL CONTINUE TO FALL OVER MAINLY SOUTHERN AND EASTERN PARTS OF THE MID-STATE THIS AFTERNOON, AND CONTINUE INTO THE EVENING, AS ANOTHER WEATHER DISTURBANCE SWINGS OUT OF NORTHERN MISSISSIPPI. RIGHT NOW, IT LOOKS LIKE THE SNOW CHANCE OVER NORTHWESTERN AND NORTH-CENTRAL MIDDLE TENNESSEE WILL DIMINISH DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS…AND ANY NEW SNOW THAT FALLS IN THOSE AREAS IS FORECAST TO PRODUCE LITTLE IF ANY ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATION.

LIGHT SNOW WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING ALTHOUGH THE HEAVIEST SNOW HAS ENDED. ROAD CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN HAZARDOUS. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE 20S THROUGH THE EVENT…SO ICY ROAD SURFACES WILL BE A PROBLEM THROUGH AT LEAST EARLY SATURDAY MORNING.

From south to north snow totals decrease across Middle Tennessee, as this map shows in predicted snowfall through midnight.

However, as the chance of precipitation falls, so will the temperature, making for potentially still very dangerous driving conditions.

Temperatures will drop to perhaps the lowest yet this winter tonight, and with the wetness remaining from rain earlier in the week, ice on the roads is very possible. Drive with extreme caution, and only if necessary, according to the NWS.
