Freezing Rain possible Thursday night for Clarksville-Montgomery County

National Weather ServiceNashville, TN – The National Weather Service (NWS) reports there will be heavy rains today and tomorrow that will transition to freezing rain tomorrow night.

While just about everyone in Middle Tennessee runs the risk of at least a light glazing, those areas northwest of the Nashville Metro area, including but limited to, Land Between the Lakes, Waverly and Clarksville, all run the risk of up to a quarter of inch of ice accumulation between 6:00pm and midnight tomorrow night.

A quarter inch of inch of ice would be greatly impactful. Travel would be extremely hazardous, if not impossible, and power outages likely. Please make the necessary preparations to deal with these kinds of hazards. If you need assistance, please visit ready.gov/winter-weather.
