This is not a drill: it snowed! Everyone has been buzzing about the event, and the trend of snow flurries to light snow showers will continue across the area for much of the day. According to the NWS Nashville Twitter page, their office has received 0.9″ of snow! However, further accumulations cannot be ruled out.
Any additional accumulations are likely to remain under an inch, mainly east of I-65. Radar shows isolated bands of heavier snow showers, which is where any further accumulation would take place. – NWS Nashville, February 7, 2020
