National Weather Service has issued a special winter weather statement for our area.
It must be some kind of cosmic joke: just after weeks of record cold breaks, snow is on the way now.
As per the NWS:
A WINTER STORM WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR WESTERN MIDDLE TENNESSEE
FROM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY EVENING…
Winter Weather Event Possible Across Middle Tennessee Friday
There is the possiblity of a winter weather event across Middle Tennessee Friday into Saturday, with accumulations of ice and snow creating hazardous travel.
An approaching frontal system will produce numerous light to moderate rain showers Thursday night into Friday. As the cold front crosses the area from west to east on Friday, temperatures will fall below freezing, changing rain to freezing rain and
snow. By Friday evening, precipitation will be all snow. The snow could continue into Saturday as well. On top of some ice accumulation, several inches of snow could fall, especially across the northern Highland Rim. Temperatures will be in the 20s Friday
night through Saturday, so hazardous travel is likely.
There is still a significant amount of uncertainty with this possible winter weather event that is still 48 hours out. Stay tuned for further information from the National Weather Service Office in Nashville along with our media partners that
serve Middle Tennessee for the latest updates on this potential winter weather event.
