NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Storm 5 Alert is in effect for Christmas Eve for areas east of Interstate 65 due to the potential of snow showers causing slick roads.

A brief rain/snow mix is expected Thursday afternoon across the Plateau.

During the afternoon, spotty flurries/snow showers will occur mainly east of I-65, leading to some minor accumulations. These flakes will look much prettier in the sky than they will on the ground but may lead to hazardous travel, especially for folks in the Plateau.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 9 a.m. until midnight for our extreme northeastern counties.
