Bracing for the next winter storm

MM’s Wx Vlog 

48-Hour Forecast 

Extended Forecast

Sunday: Rain likely.

MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

A storm system will move in from the southwest, bringing another opportunity for accumulating snowfall to the region. As I mentioned last night, some areas may see sleet mix in at the start, which would reduce snow accumulations and keep totals in the 2-3 inch range. Those of you in Fentress County have the least likelihood of seeing sleet, which could give you snow totals closer to the 3-5 inch range. More or less sleet will reduce or increase snow totals areawide. I’ll monitor that possibility today and keep you posted!

Snow Day Forecast

With precip now expected to arrive by mid-morning, the chance for school is slim.

On This Day in Wx History

1960- A winter storm brings heavy snowfall to much of Middle Tennessee. Crossville measures 8″ of snow, while Tullahoma reports 7.9″, and Nashville, 7.3″.
