National Weather Service currently forecasts between 4-6 inches of snow in much of southern and eastern Middle Tennessee, with an 80-90% possibility of greater than 3 inches of snow and a 50-60% possibility of greater than 5 inches of snow.

Snow is expected to begin Sunday night with the heaviest snow falling through the day Monday.

Low temperatures Monday night will be near single digits with a low near 0 degrees Tuesday night. Wind chill (feels like) will be in the negative range. Temperatures are not forecast to return to above freezing until a 40 degree high on Thursday.

Coffee County Emergency Management will monitor the situation and will open warming shelters if they are determined to be needed. Designated locations and information will be broadcast as it is available.
