Snow returns to Wilson County

Wilson County residents awoke Saturday morning to find a significant swing in temperatures compared to the past couple of weeks, along with a light dusting of snow.

As predicted, Wilson County received about a half-inch of snow that mildly affected travel for motorists. National Weather Service forecasters predicted any measurable snowfall should last until about noon.

The NWS cancelled a freeze warning at 8 a.m. that went into effect Friday at midnight. A second freeze warning will go into effect Saturday at midnight until Sunday at 7 a.m.

A freeze warning means subfreezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. The conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation, forecasters said.

Forecasters said Sunday should be sunny with high near 50 degrees. And the chance of more snow Monday and Tuesday has since weakened with highs both days in the mid- to upper-40s. Wilson County should get a steady shower with a 70-percent chance of rain expected Monday and a 20-percent chance Tuesday.
