Cold Temps Possible Snow As R.C. Students Head Back To School

ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – As Robertson County prepares to send students back to school this week following the holidays, they will be greeted by some chilly temperatures and maybe even a little snow.

The first snowfall of the season is possible Thursday afternoon through Friday night according to the National Weather Service. As cold temperatures settle into the region late this week with ,ows in the mid 20’s and highs in the mid 30’s, middle Tennessee will have its first opportunity for accumulating snowfall.

Starting Thursday afternoon and ending Friday night, the Cumberland plateau is likely to see the majority of any snowfall we experience. Snowfall totals of an inch or slightly more are possible through this time frame.

Robertson County along with everyone else across middle Tennessee is more likely to see a dusting up to one inch of snow. While snowfall totals are not expected to be excessive by any stretch, any amount of snow will cause at least minor travel impacts across the mid-state. However, with higher totals on the Cumberland plateau, moderate travel impacts could be experienced both Friday and Saturday mornings.

Robertson County Schools have 10 snow days available.

Smokey Barn News will be in constant contact with school and weather officials for our area. For the latest weather and school info check out Smokey’s website or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
