Weather Update from Lincoln County EMA
We wanted to provide a quick update with the current snow forecast. Models still have a pretty high range of snow amounts, however, solutions have moved closer together. Timing and amounts have not changed too much since the previous email. But, some snow may develop before this evening (as many areas have seen so far this afternoon) and could produce brief bursts of snow showers that will reduce visibility and may accumulate earlier than tonight. Most of the snow accumulation is still expected later this evening through Saturday morning. Here are updated details and images:
What: Accumulating snow potential, especially for areas on the Cumberland Plateau and north/east of Nashville.
Timing:This evening through the mid morning hours Saturday. Snow looks to continue into the late morning and even the afternoon for the Plateau, but little to no additional accumulation expected after Saturday morning.
Snow Amounts: Around 1 to 2 inches of snow possible on the Cumberland Plateau, with some spots possibly getting up to around 3 inches. A dusting to around an inch possible west of the Plateau.
Confidence: medium. Model spread is still higher than we would like it to be for snowfall amounts at this time. However, confidence has increased slightly as models did trend closer to our current forecast.
