The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for Wilson County Monday.

“We are looking at round three of winter weather moving in tonight with a chance of freezing rain and up to 1 inch of snow for portions of Wilson County,” said Capt. Steve Spencer of the Wilson Emergency Management Agency.

According to the National Weather Service, the advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Monday through 9 a.m. Tuesday.

“This system, unlike the first two, will probably affect our travel in the morning,” said Spencer. “Temperatures should rise above freezing on Tuesday, melting any ice by afternoon.”

Forecasters expect light sleet and snow to begin between 9 p.m. and midnight, with light snow continuing after midnight and ending by 6-9 a.m.

Areas could see a dusting up to an inch of snow, with more accumulation north of Interstate 40.

Authorities advise caution when traveling, especially on bridges and overpasses.
