Winter Storm Warning in effect from National Weather Service

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn - A winter storm warning has been issued for Clarksville and the surrounding areas by the National Weather Service. This warning is in effect from 6 p.m. this evening until 6 a.m. Tuesday,

Heavy snowfall is possible during this period with a predicted accumulation of 3 to 5 inches across all of Middle Tennessee. Travel could become very difficult, and hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute. Cold wind chills as low as 5 below zero can result in hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of emergency.

Normally, a Winter Storm Watch will be issued in advance of the storm (usually at least 24 hours). It indicates the risk of a hazardous winter weather event has increased (at least a 50% chance of it occurring), but its occurrence, location, and/or timing is still uncertain. It is intended to provide enough lead time so you can make plans to stay safe. While rare for our area, a Blizzard Watch may be issued instead. 

As the event becomes imminent, a Watch will normally be upgraded to either a Warning — which the Clarksville area is now under, or an Advisory. Either case indicates an 80% or greater possibility of a storm occurrence.

A Warning (again, which the Clarksville area is now officially under, just to emphasize) indicates that conditions pose a threat to life or property, and that travel will become difficult to impossible. 

An Advisory, on the other hand, indicates conditions pose a significant inconvenience, and if caution is not exercised, could lead to situations that may threaten life and/or property.
