A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Wilson County by the National Weather Service Office in Old Hickory and will be in effect from 9 Monday night until 9 a.m., Tuesday.
The advisory is for sleet and snow beginning Monday between 9 p.m. and midnight with light snow expected to continue after midnight, ending between 6 to 9 a.m., Tuesday.
For those who must be out on the roadways, and for those who may be traveling, the advisory said light rain and freezing rain were expected tonight along and south of a line from Waynesboro to Crossville, changing over to all freezing rain overnight.
North of that line, meteorologists said a mix of light sleet and light snow was expected tonight before becoming all light snow overnight.
“Major uncertainty remains on precipitation types and how far northwest precipitation will reach across the Mid-state,” the advisory said, “with areas along and north of a line from Linden to Lafayette potentially seeing little or no precipitation.”
Even so, the main impact of this system looks to be a dusting to 1 inch of snow accumulation possible, with higher snow amounts east of Interstate 65 and north of Interstate 40.
Minor snow accumulation may cause hazardous driving conditions, especially on bridges and overpasses. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities.
If you must be out later tonight and early tomorrow, use caution while driving.
