The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Rutherford County and much of Middle Tennessee from Sunday night through Tuesday morning.
WGNS Weatherology Meteorologist Derek Heit has details on the Winter Storm Warning:
Significant snow, sleet, and freezing rain accumulations are possible. The highest snow totals will occur farther west, with increased amounts of sleet and freezing rain farther east. Travel impacts are expected, especially Monday and Tuesday.
Forecasts are calling for a-quarter to a half-inch of ice accumulation for Rutherford County with one-to-three inches of snow and sleet.
The National Weather Service mentions significant impacts on travel are to be expected with the winter storm. Cold temperatures are also to be expected through the week with another round of possible winter weather Wednesday night and Thursday.
Since it's been awhile since we've had significant winter weather (in fact - 1,848 days since our last winter storm warning), now is the time to take any necessary precautions to be prepared.
Stay with WGNS and our team of Weatherology meteorologists who will be fine tuning the details in the coming days.
