MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

NOTE: Some of you may see the wintry mix for a longer period of time, especially across southern Cumberland County. Also, keep in mind that with temps so close to freezing, snow may mix with sleet or rain off and on through the day. Heavier precip will tend to be snow, while lighter precip will tend to be the wintry mix. Stay tuned to updates to this chart.

On This Day in Wx History

2003- A major snowstorm strikes the mid state, with Nashville reporting 7″ of snow — much more than was forecast — becoming the city’s biggest snowfall in nearly 7 years. The snow begins falling around 8:00 a.m., and by mid-day the city is paralyzed with blocked interstates, numerous accidents, and large-scale gridlock.

Almanac for Yesterday

Road Conditions 

Prepare for major travel impacts Sunday through Monday. Refer to TDOT’s SmartWay map for road info. That info can be found at the link below.

Power Outages 

With this being a heavy, wet snow you should prepare for power outages. If snow is heavier than forecast, those outages could be of a long duration. To keep up with reported power outages, see the link below.
