According to Capt. Steve Spencer, planning officer with Wilson County Emergency Management Agency, areas to the northwest of Nashville will continue to see icy conditions develop Friday afternoon as a freeze line begins to shift east.

Hazardous travel conditions are likely for those traveling northwest of Nashville on Friday. NWS forecasters remain confident the freeze line will hold to the west of Wilson County until late Friday afternoon. Rain, snow, freezing rain and sleet are expected before midnight, then a chance of freezing drizzle between midnight and Saturday at 3 a.m. with a low around 29 degrees and north wind at 10 mph-15 mph.

Icing could develop Friday night with accumulations around 1/10 inch or less. Any amount of ice can create hazardous driving conditions, so motorists should continually monitor road conditions overnight.

A break in precipitation is expected Saturday with a high near 36 degrees with redevelopment Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Travel Sunday morning could be hazardous until temperatures warm above freezing during the day. The high Sunday is expected to be 45 degrees with 100-percent chance of precipitation.

More rain is expected Sunday night with a low around 40 degrees.

NWS forecasters are now tracking a third round of winter weather, which could impact Wilson County Monday night. Forecast models are unsure, but it’s possible areas east of Interstate 65 could see 1-2 inches of snow develop Monday night with a low around 25 degrees.
