This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Middle
Tennessee.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

No hazardous weather at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Gusty winds can be expected Saturday into Sunday across
the mid state. The greatest potential of gusts will be
on Saturday morning where gusts could approach 40 mph.

Numerous moderate to heavy rain showers along with a few
thunderstorms are expected across the mid state as Saturday
progresses. Rainfall totals are likely to range between
1 to around 2 inches with locally higher amounts possible.
Minor flooding of small creeks, streams, low lying areas
and other flood prone locations may occur.

Rain showers are expected to quickly change over to light snow
showers Saturday evening and into the early morning hours of
Sunday. Snow accumulations will range from a dusting to a few
tenths of an inch for locations north of I-40. The greatest
accumulations are expected to be around one half of an inch
across the higher elevations of the Upper Cumberland Region.

Light snow, along with any leftover standing water on area
roadways, bridges and overpasses, could freeze and cause
travel difficulties from Saturday evening into Sunday.

Very cold temperatures are expected on Monday morning, with
lows dropping generally into the teens. Wind chills may fall
to near or below zero in some areas.

Additional light snow may occur again Wednesday night into
Thursday. Significant uncertainty remains concerning possible
accumulation amounts as of this time.

Spotter activation may be needed on Saturday into Sunday for
localized flooding and snowfall accumulation reports.

...Heavy Rain and Light Snowfall Likely this Weekend...

A major storm system will bring numerous showers and a few
thunderstorms to Middle Tennessee on Saturday. Rainfall
amounts of 1 to around 2 inches are likely with localized
higher amounts possible. Minor flooding of small creeks,
streams, low lying areas and other flood prone locations
may occur.

An Arctic cold front will then bring much colder temperatures to
the area Saturday night, changing rain quickly to snow Saturday
night and ending across the Cumberland Plateau Region by the
mid morning hours on Sunday. Exact snow accumulations still
remain somewhat uncertain, but the potential exists for a
dusting of snowfall across the south up to a few tenths of an
inch for locations north of I-40. The greatest potential for
accumulating snowfall will be across the higher elevations of
the Cumberland Plateau Region where around one half of an inch
of snowfall accumulation is expected.

Light snow, along with any leftover standing water on area
roadways, bridges and overpasses, could freeze and cause
travel difficulties from Saturday evening into Sunday.

Stay up to date with the latest forecasts regarding the
potential for heavy rain and winter weather as the weekend
progresses.
