Weather Update Feb. 24 late edition

The rain has changed to snow for some folks tonight especially in areas of east of I-65 and mainly along the Cumberland Plateau.  There were a few photos sent in before sunset where the snow had started accumulate on grassy surfaces.

The snow is apart of a big area of low pressure that is bringing severe storms to the east coast and heavy snow to the upper mid-west. We are squeezed in the middle with the wind and rain and now enough cold air to bring snow to some select spots. A Winter Weather Advisory begins at 12mid and goes until 12 noon for the northeast corner of Middle Tennessee. That is where the greatest accumulation will occur.

WSMV WATCH

The temperatures at the surface are above freezing in most spots, but the air above the surface is cold enough to let the precipitation fall as snow in some areas.

As you can see most of the snow is in southeast Kentucky and along the Cumberland Plateau. That is where we have forecasted the higher amounts.

With 1-2″ a possibility in the highlighted areas, some schools may close tomorrow or at least be delayed.  Paul Heggen will have that Snowbird Report tomorrow morning on Channel 4 News Today.
