9:50 Update: Snow moving onto the plateau

Current radar shows precipitation is continuing to transition to a rain/snow mix, then to all snow. It looks as if all of Overton, Pickett, and Fentress counties are seeing a mix to all snow now. This has prompted those schools to be closing around noon today. That wintry precip will continue to slide southeastward as the morning progresses.

Temps are still in the low to mid 30s and no one is below freezing just yet (at least from any observations I’ve seen). We are currently 37 degrees here in downtown Crossville.

The snow may come down heavy at times, even whitening the landscape. However, until temps can fall to that 32-degree mark, it will melt as soon as precip lets up. Later this evening, those temps will fall below freezing and that is when we will likely accumulate our snowfall. Up to one inch could accumulate across the plateau.

A winter weather advisory will likely be issued at any time for the plateau. That advisory would be for this afternoon and tonight (especially tonight).

Below is a current look at weatherTAP’s RadarLab, showing that transition from rain to snow taking place across the plateau at this hour.

I’m keeping an eye on all of this!
