A mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow is expected late afternoon Wednesday for Clarksville-Montgomery County.

As the front passes on Wednesday, precip will switch from rain to a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow during the late afternoon and early evening hours and finally to all snow from Northwest to Southeast overnight.

Snowfall and sleet accumulations may be between 3 to 6 inches with freezing rain causing ice accumulation around a tenth of an inch as well. Major travel impacts are expected to develop Wednesday evening as the wintry precipitation spreads over the area.

In fact, major travel impacts will likely last all the way into Friday afternoon since temperatures are expected to remain below the freezing mark Thursday and much of Friday. Low temperatures in many areas Friday morning are expected to reach the single digits.

Accumulations from 3 to 6 inches are possible with the highest amounts closer to the Kentucky state line and lowest amounts across the South. Freezing rain accumulations are expected to be around a tenth of an inch.

This will likely keep many roadways slick and hazardous for an extended period of time.

A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
