Accumulating Snow Event This Weekend

Look for a powerful storm system to run through Middle Tennessee this weekend bringing rain along with a good chance of an accumulating snow event on Saturday night and Sunday. Areas to the west of Cookeville and vicinity should expect at least an inch while others should see up to 2" or more. Roads will be affected both Saturday and on Sunday as tough driving conditions will develop.

Snow continues on Sunday for much of our area and more frigid cold weather is expected as lows Sunday night will drop to around 12°. Monday will be frigid as well with highs only expected in the lower 20's with single digits common by Tuesday morning.

Timing of the changeover from rain to snow is expected sometime around midnight. Church goers should be extremely careful Sunday morning as roads are expected to be treacherous.
