NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Winter Storm Watch for much of Middle Tennessee ahead of Friday’s forecasted snowy weather.

The watch for Davidson, Williamson and Rutherford counties, among others, will go into effect 6 a.m. Friday through noon Saturday. Visit wkrn.com/alerts for the latest weather alerts.

Nashville could see several inches of snow, while the northeast area of Middle Tennessee could see even more.

The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency remains at Level 4 as they expect the winter storm to move into the state Thursday and pass through Friday. Read more on their website.

The possible snow comes after much of the region experienced a wintry mix that included sleet, freezing rain and snow Wednesday morning.

The northern areas of Middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky saw as much as three inches of snow.

Much of it melted Wednesday afternoon but overnight below-freezing temperatures threaten to re-freeze the roads, leading some school districts to close Thursday as a precaution. See the latest closings and delays at wkrn.com/closings.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation said it is prepared for the winter weather with more than 250,000 tons of salt and nearly 2 million gallons of brine ready for use.
