000 FXUS64 KOHX 200243 AFDOHX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Nashville TN 843 PM CST Sat Jan 19 2019 .UPDATE... FOR EVENING DISCUSSION. && .DISCUSSION... Evening forecast is in fine shape at this time. We will issue updates to adjust hourly trends as precip changes over to snow. Deformation band snow has been spreading into our northwest counties over the past couple of hours, just now moving into Nashville. We continue to look for greatest accumulation (1 to locally 2 inches) in the northwest where a Winter Wx Advisory is in place. Elsewhere, the trailing edge of the snow band will deposit a slushy coating, less than 1 inch. Far southern areas may only have flurries. Still, we are concerned about some travel issues late tonight through Sunday morning as temperatures plummet through the 20s. On the plus side, gusty northwest winds will help dry up some of the moisture. Sunday morning wind chills will be in the single digits and teens. Some sunshine will help improve any road issues by midday Sunday. But air temperatures will struggle with sub-freezing highs for many areas. && .AVIATION... 00Z TAF DISCUSSION. BNA/MQY/CKV/CSV...A strong cold front is marching across Middle Tennessee as we head into evening. Most of the liquid precipitation has exited the mid state, with only a thin line of showers occurring along the frontal boundary. Temperatures behind the front are plummeting, and already we are seeing snow reports upstream and headed this way. Look for ceilings to bounce around before the deeper occluded front moisture wraps into area and clouds drop to IFR. Expect light to moderate rain & snow later this evening and overnight, lasting into the morning along the Cumberland Plateau. Winds will remain brisk the next 24 hours, even as conditions go VFR tomorrow. && .OHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... Winter Weather Advisory until 3 AM CST Sunday for Montgomery- Stewart. && $$ DISCUSSION......13 AVIATION........08 is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
