Winter makes brief return with snow in North and Western Tennessee

0

A few warm days doesn’t mean winter is over — yet. In fact, a winter weather advisory is in effect from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.. Northern and northwestern Tennessee could see up to two inches of snow  as a strong low pressure system moves into the area this evening and overnight. Rain this evening will mix with snow, and change over to all snow from the northwest through the southeast this evening and overnight.

Snow accumulations of around an inch with some localized amounts up to 2 inches possible, especially north of I-40 and west of I-65, if temperatures cool off sooner than expected. Most of the advisory area is expected to see at least a half inch of snow, which looks to impact the morning commute. Bridges and overpasses will likely become slick, as well as any untreated roads. Use caution and allow for additional time to reach your destination, especially during the morning commute. Snow should come to an end from west to east around sunrise
Monday.

The winter weather advisory and special weather statement impacts the following counties:

  • Stewart
  • Montgomery
  • Robertson
  • Sumner
  • Macon
  • Clay
  • Pickett
  • Houston
  • Humphreys
  • Dickson
  • Cheatham
  • Davidson
  • Wilson
  • Trousdale
  • Smith
  • Jackson
  • Overton

This includes the  the cities of Dover, Clarksville, Springfield, Hendersonville, Gallatin, Goodlettsville, Lafayette, Celina, Byrdstown, Erin, Waverly, New Johnsonville, McEwen, Dickson, Ashland City, Kingston Springs, Nashville, Lebanon, Mount Juliet, Hartsville, Carthage, South Carthage, Gordonsville, Gainesboro, and Livingston.

What can we expect?

  • Accumulations of a half inch to around an inch can be expected, with locally up to 2 inches
    possible in portions of Middle Tennessee.
  • From 10 PM this evening to 7 AM CDT Monday.
  • Plan on slippery road conditions,including during the morning commute on Monday. Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.

There is still some uncertainly regarding snowfall accumulations, and you should listen for additional weather updates through the day on Sunday to see if there has been any change in the forecast. Temperatures late Sunday night and early Monday are expected to drop to between 29 and 32 degrees over extreme northern Middle Tennessee and along the Cumberland Plateau. So, it is possible that some roads could become slushy or snow covered. Any snow that falls won`t stick around long, as temperatures are forecast to top out in the 40s to around 50 by Monday afternoon.
