Following one of the warmest Decembers in history, Wilson County is finally seeing some wintry weather this month.
Wilson County Schools were closed on Wednesday and Thursday this week due to the weather - as folks across the county woke up to snow and ice on Wednesday morning. Some of the precipitation melted off as temperatures rose on Thursday; however, due to icy backroads many school systems in Middle Tennessee chose "better safe than sorry" as they elected to close schools again Thursday.
Now Wilson County is expected to see snow on Friday.
Meteorologist Mark Rose, with the National Weather Service office in Donelson, said Wilson County could receive 2 to 4 inches of snow.
Rose said the accumulation will begin as rain on Thursday night and transition into sleet by late Friday morning.
"It will gradually change over to snow on Friday afternoon into Friday evening," he said, adding that the snow will be over by midnight. "If we see anything Saturday it will be flurries."
The high temperature on Friday is predicted to top out around 37 degrees and fall throughout the day.
