NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for all of Middle Tennessee through 6am Tuesday. During the evening hours of Sunday, sleet predominated the precipitation adding a good 1/2″-1″ of ice pellets on top of the layer of ice left by the day’s freezing mist/fog. A combination of mostly sleet, and freezing rain will be possible through early morning, continuing to cause slick roadways.

This will taper off temporarily early Monday morning, to be followed by Round 2 by mid-morning. Keep an eye on the radar.

It will be a combination of snow, sleet, and freezing rain during the day Monday turning to all snow by Monday afternoon/evening. Get the latest forecast.

The snow should move out late evening, but expect whatever we do see to stick around since temps stay below freezing on Tuesday.

We are expecting the highest snow totals to the north and west. We could see 6 to 8 inches or more. Around Nashville, we will see from 3 to 6 inches. The south and east will only see 1 to 2 inches, but they will see more ice.

Ice accumulation will be highest to the south and east, but we do think everyone will see some ice so you can expect travel issues beginning Sunday night through Tuesday. Also, those that receive .25″-.5″ of ice could see power outages and broken tree limbs. Get prepared now before it is too late.

To make things worse, we are expecting gusty winds with this system and that will make already cold temperatures feel even colder! By Tuesday morning, the coldest air arrives and with the wind it will feel like the single digits or below zero in spots. Bundle up!
