HCS cancels school ahead of winter storm

Josh Barnwell, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Nashville, said temperatures will likely start to drop between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. and will continue to fall throughout the day.

A potent winter storm will bring rain, ice and snow to portions of the southern and eastern United States over the next two days, which will be followed by another ferocious blast of bitterly cold Arctic air.

"Snow accumulations of 4" - 7" and up to 14" are possible for most mountain passes like MacDonald pass. Butte and Anaconda could see 1" - 3" of snow.

A Winter Storm Watch has also been issued for parts of Middle Tennessee from 6 a.m. until midnight Friday.

"The STORMTracker Weather Team says to expect a general 5-8" snowfall across the plains of north-central Montana.

Colder air into the afternoon Friday will cause rain to change to freezing rain, sleet or a mix of everything in the afternoon.

In Madison on Thursday it was 48 at 5:53 a.m., but the temperature should fall to around 20 my 5 p.m. and bottom out at 9 overnight. Memphis and Shelby County will be on the line with nothing up to an inch. The renewed freezing temperatures will cause ice to accumulate across large parts of the mid-Mississippi Valley, Tennessee Valley, Ohio Valley and interior Northeast. Roads are starting to get slick on Briley Parkway near Whites Creek Pike. We should all see at least a light glaze that will make things slippery.

"NORTH MS: Nothing - 1" Mainly for Corinth, Walnut down to Tupelo.

Ice and snow accumulations for the eastern USA could include as much as a foot of snow for western NY and New England.

Snow accumulations will range from 4 to 6 inches along the Interstate 71 corridor to as much as 6 to 9 inches near the OH and Pennsylvania border, according to the NWS. We are showing which areas have the best chance. This will continue into the early afternoon Thursday as both temperatures and wind chills plummet. "But the later they can come in the more it will allow that to happen".

Friday: Sunny and breezy, with a high near 56 and a low around 30. And check back here often for more updates.

We are tracking active weather for the next 24 hours.
