10:00 pm Quick Update on Snow forecast

I just wanted to let you all know that I’m still tracking our system for tomorrow and tomorrow night. The cold air that will filter in tomorrow is still well to our northwest, but it is slowly moving our way.

Rain showers will develop overnight and those will continue into our Wednesday. A lot of cold air will be filtering in aloft, in the atmosphere high above us. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you see some snowflakes in the showers during the afternoon. Surface temps should stay above freezing until about sunset, so we should be alright. Precip in the afternoon is expected to be light.

The cold front should pass through our area sometime between 9:00 a.m and noon. Gusty north winds will send temps tumbling into the 30s during the afternoon. Again, surface temps will stay above freezing, preventing any travel issues.

By nightfall, any leftover precip will turn to light snow, with up to an inch accumulation. There could be localized areas that see a bit more, especially along the western edges of the plateau (Mayland, Monterey, etc). I still think most of us will see a dusting to half an inch.

We are under NO advisories at this time but that may change. I suspect we will have a winter weather advisory issued for Wednesday night and Thursday morning but that’s up to the NWS in Nashville to determine.

I still expect only minor travel issues from the snow but you can’t be too careful. Be safe if you must travel after dark Wednesday.

Bundle up tomorrow because after that front moves through we’ll see very gusty, north winds that will be blowing in colder air.

I’ll have a full update in the morning!

WHAT: Light snow

WHEN: After 6:00 p.m. Wednesday (for accumulation). We could see a rain/snow mix before then.

HOW MUCH: Up to one inch, with localized higher amounts possible
