Saturday Morning Snow Update: A Little More Concerned

This picture has me concerned. It's a picture from NW Tennessee this morning where some precipitation has already started. The big question with this storm system was: WILL THE SNOW STICK? Well, this picture shows about 1/2" of snow, but it's easily sticking to the roads! They were also in the 70s, two days ago.

Here are some bullet points:

  • Sleet and snow is already falling in areas.
  • Mostly rain through the day, but some places may dabble in wintry mix all day.
  • Rain changes to snow for most areas later in the afternoon.
  • Snow this evening.
  • I'll be in the Central Ford StormTRACKER providing updates this evening.
  • Snow may stick easier and faster than previously thought. (Based on pic above)
  • Generally, 1-2" for areas that change to snow.
  • Melts tomorrow.
  • Churches may be impacted.
Let's look at some data. This is what StormCAST (RPM) is showing at 6:00 PM. Many areas will be rain, but spotty areas switching to snow:


By 9:00 PM, many locations will be all snow:


Latest short term data is still showing 1-2" of snowfall. Don't focus on exact areas, but rather the overall pattern:
Stay tuned!
