With temperatures forecast to dip below 32 degrees again Friday night, Wilson County and other parts of Middle Tennessee could see its first real snowfall of 2018. 

According to National Weather Service forecasters, the chance for rain is 100 percent Friday, and with the low Friday night set to drop to 24 degrees, that rain may just turn to a wintery mix of sleet and snow. Wind gusts as high as 20 mph are also expected. 

“A system will move into the Tennessee River Valley early Friday morning introducing the chance for a wintry mix across the area. The transition from rain to freezing rain and sleet is possible late Friday morning to early afternoon. Some light ice accumulations for the I-65 corridor will be possible, however the best chance for ice accumulations will remain in the western counties, which are currently under a Winter Storm Watch,” forecasters said.

Friday night’s forecast says there is a 50-percent chance for a wintery mix and then snow as temperatures drop. Saturday’s forecast includes a 20-percent chance of snow with a high of 29 degrees and the low expected to drop Saturday night to 15 degrees. 

Rain showers are also expected Thursday with a 50-percent chance during the day and an 80-percent chance Thursday night. With the low for Thursday forecast at 44 degrees, those showers are expected to remain unfrozen.
