The NWS office out of Nashville, has issued an ISW (Ice Storm Warning) for the following counties until midnight: Pickett, Putnam, Overton, Fentress, and Cumberland

* .25" to 1"+ of ice could be seen in these regions tonight. Those amounts will snap trees and power lines, so we will watch or any reports out of those areas tonight and early tomorrow morning.

For almost the rest of Middle TN and SCK, a WWA (Winter Weather Advisory) has been issued until midnight. You can find which counties are in these advisories in this link here weather advisory

* For people south of I-40...some small ice accumulation is possible as well as some sleet accumulation up to 1/2".

* For people north and northwest of Nashville...up to 1" of snow and sleet can be expected with some localized higher amounts. Small ice accumulations are possible as well (Have some here at my house in Macon County).

I will keep you up to date on any changes that could come with this winter weather system unfolding.
