Snow is falling...









...and it began to accumulate lightly between 9:30 and 10.

Plus, "Baby it's cold outside!" The temp is down to 32 and it feels much colder in the wind...

1020 PM CST TUE FEB 26 2008

...LIGHT SNOW POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT ACROSS SOUTHERN MIDDLE TENNESSEE
AND PORTIONS OF NORTHEASTERN ALABAMA...

A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LOCATED IN THE NEW ENGLAND STATES
WILL CONTINUE TO PULL COLD AIR ACROSS THE TENNESSEE VALLEY. AT
THE SAME TIME...AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL COMBINE WITH THE
COLD AIR AND RESIDUAL LOW LEVEL MOISTURE TO PRODUCE THE POTENTIAL
FOR SNOW SHOWERS THROUGH THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. MOST AREAS WILL
SEE SNOW AMOUNTS LESS THAN 1 INCH...MAINLY ON GRASSY AREAS ALONG
WITH BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES.

IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF SOUTHERN MIDDLE TENNESSEE AND
NORTHEASTERN ALABAMA...THE POTENTIAL FOR AROUND 1 INCH OF SNOWFALL
IS POSSIBLE ON BOTH GRASSY AREAS AND ROADWAYS. LOCATIONS SUCH AS
SEWANEE...MENTONE...MONTE SANO...AND HYTOP WILL BE THE MOST PRONE TO
SEEING HIGHER SNOW ACCUMULATIONS.

MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO USE CAUTION OVERNIGHT AS SOME SLICK SPOTS
DEVELOP...MAINLY ON BRIDES AND OVERPASSES AND IN HIGHER ELEVATION
AREAS.
