Wilson Emergency Management Agency Capt. Steve Spencer said a cold front will bring freezing rain, ice and snow overnight Sunday and into Monday morning, but the extent and timing remain uncertain.

“Let me say that there are so many variables which could affect what we see and when we see it that the forecast models cannot pinpoint,” Spencer said Sunday afternoon.

Spencer said the impact would likely come early Monday morning with a light glaze of ice on bridges and overpasses in higher elevations.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for Wilson County from Sunday at 9 p.m. until Monday at 6 a.m.

Forecasters said cold air would continue to filter into the area Sunday behind a cold front. A change to freezing rain, sleet and snow is expected Sunday night and early Monday morning with about 1/10 of an inch of ice and 1 inch of snow accumulation expected.

According to forecasters, hazardous road conditions are expected Sunday night and drivers are advised to use caution.
