First Snowfall expected tonight for Clarksville-Montgomery County


National Weather ServiceNashville, TN – The National Weather Service (NWS) says the first snowfall of 2016 likely in Clarksville-Montgomery County as well as parts of Middle Tennessee tonight as light to moderate rains move through the mid-state tonight.

Cold air is expected to close in quickly. This will cause the rain to change over to snow leaving many spots in Middle Tennessee with their first snowfall accumulations of the year. Snow accumulations are going to be tricky.

Expectations are that counties in far northwest Middle Tennessee, closest to the Tennessee River and Kentucky are going to see the brunt of this system.

Snow expected across Clarksville-Montgomery County late tonight.

Snow expected across Clarksville-Montgomery County late tonight.

Up to one inch of snow is possible but any shift in the track of the low pressure system could increase snowfall totals greatly especially in Stewart County, Houston County and Montgomery County.

Up to one half inch is possible on the Cumberland Plateau and most everyone else may see a dusting to one quarter of an inch with counties closest to Alabama likely seeing no snow accumulations at all.

In regards to the timing, rain is expected to begin to change over to snow as early as 11:00pm this evening for our northwest counties near the Tennessee River, 1:00am for counties along the Interstate 65 corridor and by 3:00am for counties east of Interstate 65 including the Cumberland Plateau.

Ground temperatures are currently very warm but this push of cold air may cause some isolated travel concerns as temperatures fall into the upper 20’s by daybreak on Sunday. Elevated surfaces along with bridges and overpasses could become slick for several hours Sunday morning while daytime highs on Sunday are expected to remain below freezing.

Sunshine is expected by early Sunday afternoon and this should alleviate any slick surfaces. Please remain weather aware tonight as there is the potential for a winter weather advisory to be needed in those far northwest counties of Middle Tennessee.
