...WINTER WEATHER EXPECTED TO CAUSE HAZARDOUS TRAVEL ACROSS MUCH
OF MIDDLE TN AND THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT...

VERY COLD AIR WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS MIDDLE TENNESSEE ON SUNDAY
AS AN APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM CAUSES PRECIPITATION TO DEVELOP.
LIGHT SNOW WILL START ACROSS THE NORTHWEST COUNTIES SUNDAY
MORNING...THEN THE PRECIPITATION WILL INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND
INTENSITY ACROSS THE ENTIRE MID STATE SUNDAY MIDDAY AND AFTERNOON.
MOST LOCATIONS WILL SEE SNOW...EXCEPT THE FAR SOUTHERN COUNTIES
ALONG THE ALABAMA BORDER...WHERE RAIN WILL FALL. TRAVEL COULD
BECOME HAZARDOUS SUNDAY AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY FOR AREAS NORTH OF
INTERSTATE 40...WHERE FREEZING SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE MORE
LIKELY.

GOING INTO SUNDAY NIGHT...WARMER AIR WILL CAUSE THE PRECIPITATION
TO CHANGE OVER TOO ALL RAIN FROM SOUTH TO NORTH. BEFORE THIS
CHANGE IS COMPLETE...SNOWFALL TOTALS ARE EXPECTED TO REACH AROUND
1 INCH FOR AREAS ALONG INTERSTATE 40...AND 2 TO 3 INCHES FOR AREAS
ALONG THE KENTUCKY BORDER AND ACROSS THE UPPER CUMBERLAND REGION.
IN ADDITION TO THE SNOW...THERE COULD BE A PERIOD OF FREEZING
RAIN...CAUSING ICY CONDITIONS.

MOST OF THE MID STATE WILL HAVE ALL RAIN WITH ABOVE FREEZING
TEMPERATURES BY DAYBREAK MONDAY...BUT THE UPPER CUMBERLAND REGION
COULD STAY COLD AND ICY UNTIL MID MORNING.

THERE IS STILL UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THIS FORECAST...ESPECIALLY HOW
QUICKLY TEMPERATURES WILL WARM UP AND CAUSE THE PRECIPITATION TO
CHANGE OVER TO RAIN. SMALL TEMPERATURE CHANGES COULD CAUSE THE
SNOW FORECASTS TO GO UP OR DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY.

PEOPLE PLANNING TRAVEL IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE OR SURROUNDING AREAS
SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR TRAVEL PROBLEMS SUNDAY INTO EARLY MONDAY
MORNING. PLEASE MONITOR UPDATED FORECASTS FOR THE LATEST ON THIS
DEVELOPING WEATHER SITUATION.

...CONFIDENCE INCREASING FOR ACCUMULATING SNOW LATE SUNDAY INTO
EARLY MONDAY...

AN UPPER LEVEL WAVE WILL APPROACH THE OHIO VALLEY AND THIS WILL
BEGIN TO SPREAD MOISTURE ACROSS THE OHIO AND TENNESSEE VALLEYS
SUNDAY. GIVEN COLD AIR IN PLACE SUNDAY INTO SUNDAY
NIGHT...PRECIPITATION WILL LIKELY BEGIN AS ALL SNOW. RIGHT NOW WE
ARE LOOKING AT THE POTENTIAL FOR 2-4 INCHES OF SNOW SUNDAY INTO
MID MORNING ON MONDAY. AFTER MID MORNING MONDAY CONFIDENCE
DECLINES ON PRECIPITATION TYPE AND AMOUNTS THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
TRAVEL PROBLEMS WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR THE MONDAY MORNING
COMMUTE...AS AREA ROADS BECOME SNOW COVERED. MOTORISTS ARE URGED
TO STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECAST FOR UPDATES AS WE GET CLOSER
TO THE EVENT.
