This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Middle Tennessee.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

A mixture of rain, sleet, freezing rain, and snow will spread across
mid state region as tonight progresses. Total snow and sleet
accumulations are expected to range from less than an inch northern
Highland Rim to no significant accumulations near Tennessee/Alabama
Border. Total ice accumulations are expected to generally be around a
tenth or less of an inch for locations generally south of I-40
Corridor, with little to no significant accumulations north. A
portion if not all of mid state may need to be placed under a Winter
Weather Advisory later today if wintry accumulation amounts look to
increase. Exercise caution while driving on area roadways tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

A wintry mixture of rain, sleet, freezing rain, and snow will taper
off across Cumberland Plateau Region by mid morning hours on Thursday.
Little to no additional significant wintry accumulations are
expected. With temperatures in many locations across mid state region
not expected above freezing on Thursday, residual moisture will
likely remain frozen on area roadways. Continue to exercise caution
while driving on area roadways on Thursday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed for wintry accumulation reports.
Please relay any information about wintry accumulation reports to
the NWS while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines.

Through Early Morning Hours on Thursday...

As a strong cold front moves through mid state region late this
afternoon into evening hours, temperatures will turn
significantly colder behind it`s passage. Initial rain showers
will transition to rain showers, sleet, freezing rain, snow
showers mixture as precipitation moves west to east across
mid state region until moisture eventually moves east of
Cumberland Plateau Region by mid morning hours on Thursday.

Total snow and sleet accumulations are expected to range from no
significant accumulations near Tennessee/Alabama Border to less
than an inch northern Highland Rim. Total ice accumulations are
expected to generally be around a tenth or less of an inch for
locations generally south of I-40 Corridor, with little to no
