... Winter weather may cause major travel problems across mid
Tennessee Wednesday into Thursday...
A strong cold front will sweep into middle Tennessee by
Wednesday. Sharply colder air will move in behind the front as
precipitation continues. The colder air will change rain over to
freezing rain... sleet and snow. Although there is still
uncertainty... some ice accumulation is possible... and there could
be 3 inches or more of snow with this weather system.
Travel will quickly become hazardous Wednesday afternoon over
northwest middle Tennessee as temperatures plummet. The travel
difficulties will spread southeastward across the rest of the
area into Wednesday evening. Major travel disruptions are likely
Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
Frigid conditions will follow the storm system. Highs on Thursday
are expected to remain below freezing. Lows Thursday night
will drop into the 5 to 15 degree range. Temperatures are expected
to warm above freezing again on Friday.
At this time... there are still uncertainties about the amount of
precipitation... and snowfall accumulations with this system.
If new data continue to show significant winter weather
potential... a Winter Storm Watch may be issued later today.
People in mid Tennessee... or with travel plans in the area... should
closely monitor updated weather information.
