One private school, Heavenly Host in Cookeville, is closed due to no water*** Light flurries occurring in area right now. No accumulation expected today.

SAME STUFF DIFFERENT DAY: I'm sure most of you have heard of SSDD. In weather terms, it'll be cold again today, we're at 13° this morning at 6:30 am, we expect to go up to 26° by this afternoon. Tonight's low is expected to be in the teens once again. Wednesday's highs will be 31° under a sunny sky and then the fun begins. A slight chance of snow Wednesday night and a big chance of snow Thursday. Last night I posted about the 100% chance for snow. The NWS has lowered it to 80%, but they are still very confident of this even occurring.

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT: The National Weather Service in Nashville has issued a Special Weather Statement for an accumulating snow event Thursday followed up by bitter cold behind the snow maker.

Jeff Ray (with News 2) has a good explanation of the upcoming snow on NashvilleWX.com
