Update: 6:45 p.m.: A winter weather advisory has been expanded to include Davidson and Williamson counties

Although Nashvillians likely won’t awaken to a blanket of white Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for parts of northwest Tennessee.

The winter storm warning will remain in effect until noon Tuesday as a low-pressure system developing over Texas pushes moisture northeast toward the Midstate.

Snow is expected to begin to fall Monday afternoon and gradually expand north and east through the night.

There may be a brief mixture of rain and sleet at times but through the overnight hours many areas in northwest Middle Tennessee will see 2-4 inches of snow. Additional light accumulations are likely early Tuesday as a cold front pushes across.

Counties in the warning area include Benton, Cheatham, Dickson, Houston, Humphreys, Stewart, Sumner, Robertson and Montgomery.
