Our NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Davidson and Williamson Counties, beginning Sunday night at 6 PM:
Winter Weather Advisories in Middle Tennessee are issued only for 1″ or more of snow.
At 9:13 PM, our NWS wrote:
Snow is more likely the further north you are. It’s entirely possible northern Davidson County could get a few inches of snow, while those along and S of HWY 96 in Williamson County get nothing.
ETA now 8 PM to Midnight Sunday:
The Hi-Res NAM:
This afternoon’s run of the European model (not shown) calls for almost 4″ in Joelton, 2″ along I-65, and only a dusting in SE Williamson Co.
Canadian Model says No Snow:
