Winter weather advisory issued for Cumberland Plateau

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A winter weather advisory for snow has been issued for the Cumberland Plateau area of Middle Tennessee until 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The earlier winter weather advisory for most of Middle Tennessee was canceled when the predicted moisture didn't develop.

4WARN Meteorologist Paul Heggen said the area of Middle Tennessee on the Cumberland Plateau and the eastern Highland Rim could pick up a few inches of snow.

The Metro Nashville area is expected to only get a dusting of precipitation.

Heggen said the transition from rain to sleet to snow in western Middle Tennessee will be from 2-5 p.m.

The Metro Nashville area would see the precipitation changing from 4-7 p.m. The Cumberland Plateau and eastern Middle Tennessee would see the transition from 6-9 p.m.

The following schools systems have canceled activities for Tuesday night:

  • Clarksville-Montgomery County School System: All after-school activities and games canceled. All school practices must end by 5:30 p.m.
  • Metro Nashville Public Schools: All after-school activities that require MNPS transportation are canceled. Principals will be making their own decisions on specific school events.
  • Sumner County Schools: All after-school activities and after-school care canceled.

The State Emergency Operations Center in Nashville activated to Level IV (Elevated) status as of 1 p.m. Tuesday due to the potential for winter-weather conditions in Middle and East Tennessee.

Snow accumulations, slick roads and cold wind chills will make for poor travel conditions through early Wednesday morning, according to the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.
