A Message from the US National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee:
What we know: This weekend will be wet and cold for everyone. It will be colder near the Tennessee/Kentucky State line, which means a better chance of seeing some type or maybe even all types of wintry precip Saturday night and Sunday morning. Right now there is at least the potential for some accumulating snow/sleet/freezing rain for you northerners.
What we don’t know: Is the path of the storm system going to move north or south? Certainly it’ll move slightly, they always do. If it moves north, then Kentucky will get the brunt of the winter weather and Middle Tennessee will get mostly rain with some snow mixed in. That would be ideal (at least for us). BUT if the system moves further south, then it will bring colder air and the potential for ice and snow closer to I-40.
Current Forecast predictions……
A wintry mix is expected in the mid-state this weekend. Best chance for snow, sleet and ice accumulations appears to be Saturday night through Sunday evening.
A surface low-pressure system, moving along the gulf coast, will spread a mixed bag of precipitation northward into middle Tennessee this weekend.
Tonight and early Saturday
The first round of wintry precipitation will occur tonight and early Saturday, especially along the Interstate 40 corridor. This should be mainly a snow and rain, with slushy snow accumulations of a few tenths of an inch possible. It might be enough to at least whiten the ground in some areas.
Saturday night through Sunday evening
A better chance for a wintry mix will occur Saturday night through Sunday evening, consisting of a mix of snow, sleet and light freezing rain. There’s a possibility for an inch or two of snow and sleet in areas north and west of Nashville and along the highland rim, then eastward to the Cumberland plateau.
Right now, it looks like our extreme northeastern areas could get upwards of 3 inches. If skies remain cloudy over the east on Sunday, as expected, believe high temperatures along the Cumberland plateau may not get out of the lower to middle 30s. The Nashville area could see a slushy half inch to one inch of snow and sleet Saturday night and Sunday.
Sunday night and early Monday
As colder air spreads in behind our departing low-pressure area Sunday night and early Monday, we could see some additional snow accumulations of few tenths of an inch. Note that there is still a great deal of uncertainty with this winter weather scenario. Please stay tuned as advisories and or watches will be issued if needed. A better idea of what will transpire will come into focus as the events draw near.
