Freezing rain, snow possible across Middle Tennessee Friday, Saturday
NASHVILLE: A Winter Weather Event is possible across Middle Tennessee on 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.
Though temperatures will reach into the low 60s on Thursday, they will plummet significantly on Friday and remain below freezing day and night through the early part of next week.
There is still a significant amount of uncertainty with this possible winter weather event that is still more than 48 hours out.
