NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Some snow is expected to fall across Middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky on Thursday as the region remains under a Winter Weather Advisory.

The advisory for Tennessee went into effect at noon and will last until at least midnight. Visit wkrn.com/alerts for the latest.

Light snow began falling in eastern counties and Cumberland Plateau around 12:30 p.m. Other areas of Middle Tennessee saw a dusting or up to half an inch around the evening commute Thursday. Check the live radar at wkrn.com/radar.

Many school districts opted to close early Thursday ahead of the snow, including Clarksville-Montgomery, Cheatham, Sumner, and Robertson counties, while Muhlenberg County Schools in Kentucky decided to close the entire day. Several others will start late or cancel class altogether for Friday. See the rest and check the latest  at wkrn.com/closings.

Roads could become slick through the evening. Drivers are urged to use caution, although the Tennessee Department of Transportation prepared the roads Wednesday ahead of the winter weather with a water and salt mixture.

Just before 4 p.m. Thursday, Kentucky transportation crews said they were winding down snow-fighting activities. Most crews went into standby mode until another round of snow moves through Thursday evening.

As for Friday morning, there could be another round of light snow, mainly across some of the southern counties. The timing looks to be from 6 a.m. until noon with no more than an inch of snow.

The highs Friday aren’t expected to climb any higher than the upper 20s. The weekend is looking really cold, despite a good deal of sunshine, with a warm up coming next week. See the latest forecast at wkrn.com/forecast.
