NWS: Freezing rain possible Sunday into Monday

The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for Middle Tennessee. A period of freezing rain or sleet is possible late Sunday into early Monday…

Although most of this weekend is expected to be dry, a wintry mix …consisting of freezing rain or sleet…is forecast to develop by Sunday evening, extending into early Monday. Any ice accumulations are expected to be relatively light, averaging less than a tenth of an inch. However, it is possible that some travel problems could develop, especially on bridges and overpasses, before temperatures warm sufficiently to cause the precipitation
to change to all rain.

Right now, it looks like the most likely time for freezing rain or sleet over western areas…including the Nashville Metro area… will be Sunday night, between  6 p.m. and midnight. After that, temperatures west of Interstate 65 should warm enough to cause precipitation to change to all rain. Meanwhile, folks in the Upper Cumberland, where cold temperatures will last longer, could see freezing rain or sleet linger into the morning commute on
Monday.

Since this potential winter weather event is still several days away, the forecast is uncertain and subject to change. Listen to a reliable source of weather information over the weekend to get the latest forecast updates.
