Discussion...

Wintry precipitation has commenced in northwestern portions of
the area. The changeover from rain to sleet and snow will continue
inching southeastward through the night, bringing a light dusting
to grassy and elevated surfaces. Precip is becoming more scattered
in nature over west Tennessee at this hour, signifying a bit of dry air
is intruding. Behind the main shield of precip, flurries or light snow
showers may continue into the early morning hours before shifting
east. Light snow may linger on the plateau through mid morning
before ending. Accumulations of around 1 inch are possible there,
with lesser amounts everywhere else.

Roadways appear mainly wet at this hour, though a few slick spots
could develop as cold air rushes in overnight. You may want to
consider adding extra time into your morning commute. Grab the
Coats, gloves and scarves, too. 7 am forecasted temperatures are
expected to be in the upper teens to mid 20s with wind chills
approaching the single digits.

While the falling temperatures and wintry precip were sped up in
time just a bit, the previous forecast remains in good shape.
