Winter Weather Advisory for pending ice event issued for Clarksville area

Dec 15, 2010

The National Weather Service in Nashville, TN has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Clarksville area from noon today (Wednesday) until 6AM Thursday.

A storm system from the south and west will move into the area today around midday with snow and sleet to begin. As warmer air pushes into the middle layers of the atmosphere, the snow and sleet will change over to a mixture of sleet and freezing rain. Overnight Wednesday temperatures will warm above 34 degrees and the precipitation will eventually change to a plain rain. Thirty-four degrees is the temperature where water will still turn to ice if that object is frozen, thus above 34 is usually a safe bet for plain rain. A Winter Weather Advisory means that ice or snow accumulations will make an impact on travels today. Please use extreme caution during the day when traveling as ice accumulations are expected. If you do have to travel, please allow for extra driving time between your destinations. Clarksville Weather Examiner will issue another detailed forecast by 9AM today.
