Significant Snow Coming Thursday

Special Weather Statement
Statement as of 7:35 AM CST on January 18, 2011

....Another significant snowfall expected in middle Tennessee on Thursday
afternoon and Thursday night...

A very cold air mass will push southward out of Canada on Wednesday...
and reach the mid state on Thursday afternoon. A band of snow will
occur at the leading edge of this Canadian air...and push into
northwestern middle Tennessee Thursday afternoon. Temperatures will
warm briefly into the lower 40s Thursday morning...but will likely
tumble into the upper 20s in the Clarksville area by sunset Thursday.
Snowfall will likely accumulate in northwestern areas Thursday
afternoon...with accumulating snows pushing into other parts of
the mid state Thursday night...with temperatures tumbling through
the 20s area wide. Some of the snow could linger along the
Cumberland Plateau into early Friday...before tapering off to

Right now...it looks like accumulations over the mid state will
average between one and two inches...with locally higher amounts
to 3 and 4 inches possible along the Cumberland Plateau.

If you are planning travel across the mid state later this
week...you should expect to encounter some wintry weather...starting
Thursday afternoon and lingering into Friday. Highs on Friday are
only forecast to be in the mid 20s to lower 30s.
