NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Storm 5 Alert is in effect until Friday afternoon due to the threat of winter weather, including icy conditions, in the region.

Current Conditions

  • Humidity: 54%
  • Dew point: 44°
  • Pressure: 29.92 in
  • Wind speed: 3 mph
  • Wind direction: NNW
  • Visibility: 10.0 mi

Late Thursday, we saw a transition of a mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow. The conditions spread toward the Interstate 40 corridor overnight into Friday morning.

On Friday morning, a winter weather advisory has been extended across the area.


The highest ice totals will be in the northwestern counties where up to 0.2 inches is expected. A glaze is possible near I-40. Gusty wind will increase stress on trees and powerlines, enhancing a power outage risk.

Temperatures won't rise much above freezing on Friday, so our areas won't have much help with melting until Saturday.
