BREAKING NEWS: Wilson County under winter weather advisory
Jan 14, 2013 1:40 pm
Capt. Steve Spencer, who monitors weather for the Wilson Emergency Management Agency, released Monday a weekly summary of data from the National Weather Service. It seems after a brief vacation, Old Man Winter is making a comeback.
The National Weather Service has included Wilson County under a winter weather advisory until Tuesday at 8 a.m.
"I also included the hazardous weather outlook for the counties on the plateau for our schools that may be headed that direction for sporting events," Spencer added.
Spencer said flooding from this weekend's rains will subside north and west, and freezing rain is expected for much of Middle Tennessee late Monday afternoon into Monday evening. The forecast includes light amounts of freezing rain, but some travel could be impacted.
Snow and sleet are possible for far northwest Middle Tennessee with more heavy rain possible in the southeast. Spencer said temperatures will be close to critical levels for more ice on Tuesday and Wednesday, near and west of I-65.
Light freezing rain is expected over most of the area late Monday afternoon into the evening. The freezing precipitation is expected to reach southern counties of Middle Tennessee by 4 p.m. and the Nashville Metro area after 5 p.m. The freezing rain will mainly impact bridges and overpasses.
Spencer said more freezing rain is possible Tuesday and Wednesday.
"This situation will need to be monitored closely," he said. "The coldest temperatures will be in the northwest half of Middle Tennessee."
Schools in Lebanon and Wilson County did not plan to dismiss early due to inclimate weather conditions.
