East Wilson may get dusting of snow

National Weather Service Office meteorologists have updated the forecast for Tuesday night into Wednesday and it now looks like there is only a potential for a dusting of snow in the eastern part of Wilson County.

Steve Spencer, Planning Division chief at Wilson County Emergency Management Agency, noted a briefing from the NWS said temperatures would be near the freezing mark at daylight, Wednesday, “which could mean the difference between looking pretty falling from the sky and melting or looking pretty falling from the sky and melting later.

“At this time, we are not expecting anything more than a dusting, but could cause a few issues on the roads briefly until the temperatures warm up later in the morning,” he said.

An Arctic cold front moving across Middle Tennessee late Tuesday night was expected to bring light snow showers across the Upper Cumberland Region and across most of Middle Tennessee on Wednesday, the NWS said in a Special Weather Statement.

The statement noted that while the heaviest snowfall will be along the Cumberland Plateau, there could be a few places west of there that receive from a dusting to one-half inch.

Since temperatures will be near or below freezing from Tuesday night into Thursday morning, some snow may accumulate on roadways and create hazardous driving conditions, especially east of the I-65 corridor nearest the Upper Cumberland. Use caution if you are traveling and plan accordingly.
