Light snow will begin across much of the watch area on Wednesday morning, with mainly snow along and west of the Cumberland Plateau. That will shift to freezing rain in the afternoon and rain mixing in Wednesday night.

Snow accumulation of one-half inch will occur east of Nashville and along the plateau. Total ice accumulations will range from one tenth to one quarter of an inch can be expected across the watch area through Wednesday night, with the greatest accumulation along the northern counties.
