This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Middle Tennessee.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for central and northern
Middle Tennessee this evening and tonight. Light rain will develop
across Middle Tennessee today, with the rain rapidly changing to
light snow late this afternoon and evening before ending. Snow
accumulations ranging from a dusting in southern Middle Tennessee up
to 2 inches near the Kentucky border are possible. Any snow
accumulation or leftover rain water on area roadways will quickly
freeze into ice Thursday night as temperatures drop, causing
hazardous travel conditions overnight and Friday.

A Wind Chill Warning also remains in effect for all of Middle
Tennessee from late this evening through midday Friday. Gusty winds
up to 40 mph will cause wind chills to drop as low as 25 degrees
below zero at times. Such cold wind chills could rapidly cause
hypothermia, as well as cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little
as 30 minutes. Outdoor pets and other animals should be brought
indoors or given extra protection and shelter to survive these cold
wind chills.

Dangerously cold temperatures are also expected across Middle
Tennessee tonight, with temperatures rapidly falling from the 50s to
near zero. Such a rapid temperature drop combined with gusty winds up
to 40 mph could cause exposed or unprotected pipes to rupture, as
well as result in isolated power outages.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Dangerously cold temperatures will continue across Middle Tennessee
through early Monday, with lows in the single digits and highs only
in the 10s and 20s. Temperatures are expected to remain below
freezing for up to 85 hours, which could cause exposed or unprotected
pipes to rupture, as well as result in isolated power outages.
