Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 2:06 PM CST Jan. 18, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heavy rain and light snowfall likely this weekend...

A major storm system will bring numerous showers and a few
thunderstorms to middle Tennessee on Saturday. Rainfall
amounts of 1 to around 2 inches are likely with localized
higher amounts possible. Minor flooding of small creeks,
streams, low lying areas and other flood prone locations
may occur.

An Arctic cold front will then bring much colder temperatures to
the area Saturday night, changing rain quickly to snow Saturday
night and ending across the Cumberland Plateau region by the
mid morning hours on Sunday. Exact snow accumulations still
remain somewhat uncertain, but the potential exists for a
dusting of snowfall across the south up to a few tenths of an
inch for locations north of I-40. The greatest potential for
accumulating snowfall will be across the higher elevations of
the Cumberland Plateau region where around one half of an inch
of snowfall accumulation is expected.

Light snow, along with any leftover standing water on area
roadways, bridges and overpasses, could freeze and cause
travel difficulties from Saturday evening into Sunday.

Stay up to date with the latest forecasts regarding the
potential for heavy rain and winter weather as the weekend
progresses.
