New Hazardous Weather Statement from NWS Updates Snow, Cold Forecast

National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Statement to go with its special winter weather statement for our area.

DAY ONE…Monday Afternoon and Tonight

Snow will begin over northwest Middle Tennessee this afternoon and spread over most of the remainder of the area tonight. Once the snow starts, temperatures will rapidly fall to the freezing mark, and snow accumulation on area roadways will produce
hazardous driving conditions.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Tuesday through Sunday

Snow is forecast for all of the mid-state on Tuesday but will taper off from the northwest starting late morning. When all is said and done, expect most of the mid-state to have an inch or two of snow on the ground, although some areas will see a little more, and some a little less. Isolated amounts up to 3 inches will be possible over the Highland Rim, north of Nashville, and along the Cumberland Plateau.

Wind Chills of -5 to -10 will be possible on the Cumberland
Plateau Tuesday night.

Here is the local forecast for the next few days:


Snow, mainly after 9pm. Low around 16. North wind 5 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.


Snow likely, mainly before noon. Cloudy, with a high near 18. North northwest wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.
