A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service in Old Hickory and will be in effect from 3 p.m., today, until midnight for areas west of the Cumberland Plateau, including Wilson County.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Drivers should be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility.
As the weather system moves across the Southeast today and tonight, moisture will continue to move into Middle Tennessee. Temperatures should begin to fall into the mid-30s by late afternoon. Meteorologists with the NWS said a rain, sleet and snow mixture is expected to begin this afternoon, changing over to all snow by tonight, with the potential of about 1 inch of accumulation.
The Cumberland Plateau region, especially the higher elevations, up to 3 inches of snow is possible.
If you must be out on the roadways later today, meteorologists urge you to be aware of weather conditions that could potentially cause problems during rush hour and will impact travel later tonight.
Pay attention to local weather updates on commercial TV and radio, NOAA Weather Radio, the Internet or social media for the latest.
