If you're about to leave work and drive home, please take it easy and don't be in a hurry.  Expect road spray, ponding, poor visibility, and possibly localized flooding of poor drainage areas.

This rain's being triggered in part by a strong cold front.  Look at the sharp temperature drop over western Middle Tennessee.  That colder air will overspread the entire Mid State tonight.

Before the rain exits, it'll end as a little wet snow especially north and east of Nashville, but potentially in Nashville, too.  Look at how this storm will progress through our area overnight.

The bitterly cold air holds off until Friday as Arctic air returns to Middle Tennessee.  In advance of that Arctic front, more flurries and snow showers are expected tomorrow night.
