A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for portions of Middle Tennessee in effect from midnight Monday night through noon Tuesday. 

Although snow totals around Davidson and surrouding counties have been lowered, any snow at all could create slick roads overnight into Tuesday morning.

Believe it or not, ahead of this strong cold front, temperatures on Monday could reach the upper 50s to near 60°.

That means that precipitation will begin as rain Monday evening before changing over to snow late Monday night. Much of the action will occur from 10pm and into the early morning hours of Tuesday.

The system seems to be a quick mover, so the snow will likely taper off in Nashville by sunrise, lingering in eastern counties before tapering off there before noon.

UPDATED snow accumulations for late Monday night through early Tuesday:  0-1/2″ amounts generally from Nashville west and northwest,  1-2″ east, and 2-3″ far southeast and on the Cumberland Plateau.

Slick roads are likely across the mid-state late Monday night and during rush hour on Tuesday morning.

In addition, a second strong cold front will blast frigid arctic air into the area on Wednesday bringing snow showers that could add an additional coating.  

What’s more important are the temperatures behind that second front.  We could likely see single digits for lows Thursday morning.  That’s not the wind chill, but the actual forecasted temperatures.

That kind of cold is not only dangerous to humans and pets outdoors, but you should check the anti-freeze in your car, and be prepared to protect exposed pipes from freezing in your house.
