The National Weather Service in Nashville is expecting a "significant" snow event for Rutherford County and much of Middle Tennessee Thursday. That's why they've issued a Winter Storm Warning. It goes through 8PM Thursday.

Forecasters say look for snow to begin early on Thursday, and continuing throughout the day and into the evening. Some sleet and freezing rain are possible mainly south of I-40, but this will be mainly a snow event.


Snowfall amounts in Rutherford County are forecast to be between 3-5", possibly higher.

What snow falls will stick around Friday. Temperatures Friday morning will be bitterly cold, with many spots waking up to mercury in the single digits.

Good news is temperatures will warm this weekend with just rain Saturday night and Sunday.
