Flurries and snow showers have increased this afternoon across the Tennessee Valley, as they move in from middle Tennessee, tracking south-southeast. At times some of the flurries have mixed with sleet, but the main precipitation type has been snow and will continue to be. Below is a look at Armor Radar showing much of the Tennessee Valley with flurries or light snow.
More flurries and light snow showers will continue to be possible through the evening as they move in from the north, gradually tapering off overnight. Below is a look at the regional satellite and radar.
Some light accumulations will be possibly, especially on grassy areas, elevated and metallic surfaces like rooftops and cars. The higher terrain east of I-65 in North Alabama and southern middle Tennessee will have the best chance for accumulations from a dusting to 1/2″ or more, on top of the snow that has already fallen.
Thankfully there have hardly been any travel issues reported, due to many of the major roads being pretreated. A concern later tonight is once the precipitation stops and the sky starts to clear, with temperatures falling below freezing, that a few slick spots could develop on roads that are still wet. Bridges and overpasses, along with secondary roads will have the greatest risk of icy patches. Use extreme caution tomorrow morning if you will be heading to any early morning church services or traveling anywhere. Have a couple extra minute for travel in case there are icy spots.
