Forecasters predicted the first snow in Wilson County would come Jan. 5, and residents could expect anywhere from a light dusting to maybe an inch of snow. That's not quite how things happened. Snow flurries were intermittent throughout the evening, but leveled off with no substantial accumulation before the morning of Jan. 6, when a larger amount of snow hit. According to the National Weather Service, parts of Wilson County saw as much as 2 inches of accumulation by Jan. 7. The school system announced schools would close early Jan. 6, as students were met with snow already on the ground as they arrived at Watertown High School that morning.
