Several chances for snow over the next five days
MIDDLE TENNESSEE: (Update 12/1/18 4 p.m)
SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT: Light snow accumulations possible this evening with light rain becoming widespread by late afternoon. As a strong cold front sweeps across the region this evening, rain will mix with and change over to snow for a few hours along and east of I-2, ending around midnight.
Light snow accumulations may occur, with a dusting to a tenth of an inch along the I-24 corridor including Clarksville and Nashville metro areas. A half inch to one inch could accumulate on the Cumberland Plateau. Temperatures will drop into the teens and 20s tonight into Friday morning and travel impacts could be felt throughout the region.
.After a balmy Wednesday, a chill — and some snow — is on the way.
The National Weather Service forecast calls for several chances for snow beginning Thursday evening; a second chance for snow comes over the weekend. The NWS Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Middle Tennessee.
Rain will develop across the area during the day on Thursday, with the rain possibly mixing with or changing over to light snow east of the I-24 corridor on Thursday evening. A dusting to one half inch of snow is possible in the Upper Cumberland and on the Cumberland Plateau.
More rain, possibly mixed with snow, is expected from late Saturday afternoon through Sunday night across Middle Tennessee. Too much uncertainty remains on whether any snow accumulations will occur.
Reports from spotters of any snow accumulations may be needed on Thursday evening.
