Snow expected to continue overnight in southern Middle TN

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Some roads may be slick overnight Wednesday as parts of southern Middle Tennessee deal with snowfall measuring up to a couple inches.

A wintry mix fell across much of the Midstate during the afternoon Wednesday, but the snow was mainly concentrated in the southern counties.

A winter storm warning remains in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday for Franklin, Lincoln and Moore counties; while a winter weather advisory is in effect for much of southeast Middle Tennessee and the Cumberland Plateau.

The National Weather Service said accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are possible west of Interstate 65 in the counties along the Tennessee-Alabama state line, with 4 to 6 inches to the east of I-65 and isolated higher totals along the Plateau.

A winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected. Travel conditions could be dangerous in these areas.

Air travel has also been affected by this storm system, as major airline hubs like Atlanta and Charlotte, NC, brace for snow and freezing rain. Several flights from Nashville International Airport to Atlanta have been canceled. Click here to view real-time flight updates.
