In anticipation of the approaching winter storm, Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Schools will have an early release of students today. APSU at Ft. Campbell will close at 1 p.m. today due to a severe weather base closure. All classes at APSU’s Ft. Campbell center will be canceled beginning 1 p.m. today. The APSU main campus is scheduled to close at 2:30 p.m..

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning effective from 3 p.m. today until 9 a.m. Thursday morning.

Currently the storm is dropping heavy rain across the region, prompting a flood watch for rivers and streams until 6 p.m. Up to two inches of heavy rain will fall across the region as a strong upper level low continues to saturate the ground. Recent rain and slow snow melt from previous storms, especially over the northern counties will leave low lying areas susceptible to flooding.

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Middle Tennessee. The rain will gradually shift to freezing rain and sleet, and eventually snow — two to five inches of it on top of one-tenth of an inch of ice. Driving will become extremely hazardous and stay that way through Friday afternoon. As the snow edges in, temperatures will plummet and no melting is expected on Thursday.

Snowfall should taper off by Thursday noon.

It will be tough to treat the ice and snow in advance since any salt or salt brine will wash away in the heavy rain.

Frigid temperatures will be in place on Thursday and Friday but are expected to break on Saturday when a high of 44 degrees is expected.
