A winter weather event is possible across Middle Tennessee Friday night into Saturday, although there is still a significant amount of uncertainty, according to the National Weather Service.

According to NWS, accumulations of ice and snow could possibly create hazardous travel.

“An approaching frontal system will produce numerous light to moderate rain showers Thursday night into Friday,” the NWS said in a statement. “As the cold front crosses the area from west to east on Friday, temperatures will fall below freezing, changing rain to freezing rain and snow. By Friday evening, precipitation will be all snow. The snow could continue into Saturday as well. On top of some ice accumulation, several inches of snow could fall, especially across the northern Highland Rim. Temperatures will be in the 20s Friday night through Saturday, so hazardous travel is likely.”

More detailed information is expected from NWS as the system approaches Thursday night and Friday.
