...Some Wintry Precipitation May Fall, but No Accumulation
expected in Middle Tennessee...

With the cold air and precipitation lagging, it seems as though we
won't have any snow accumulations occur in Middle Tennessee this
morning. However, several reports around the region have indicated
that a wintry mix of precipitation has occurred in some areas,
including a few reports of light snow and other reports of sleet.

Again, while no accumulations are expected, some folks along and
east of I-65 may see some sleet or light snow. Travels impacts
should be minimal as the windy conditions keep area roads dry.
