Friday winter storm fast approaching!

Several school districts have already closed ahead of the winter weather, including Metro Nashville Public Schools, Clarksville-Montgomery County, Rutherford, Wilson and Williamson counties. Widespread light showers and pockets of heavier rain are around for the morning, and a good soaking is expected for the region during the rest of the day, so remember the umbrella. Otherwise, it's a return to the arctic cold Saturday. By 12pm Friday and into the afternoon, we will transition from rain to a wintry mix, with temperatures around 35 degrees midday Friday. We are done with the rain, saw freezing rain earlier this morning (and continue to see some even still) and sleet.

A trough of low pressure from the Northwest will settle over the valley Monday, bringing a storm system that will drop inches of rain and snow, said Cory Mueller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

SLEET: Tiny ice pellets can accumulate like snow.

Temperatures will fall back into the 20s to low 30s statewide overnight, and high temperatures on Saturday will range from the upper 20s and 30s in north Alabama to the mid-40s in south Alabama.

The weather service added: "The transition to colder temperatures will be co-located with rain, changing to freezing rain, sleet and eventually snow for many from the Tennessee and OH valleys into interior sections of the Mid-Atlantic region and Northeast today and tonight".
