Valentine's Day snow expected - Advisory posted

The Winter Storm Watch that was issued Saturday afternoon for all of west TN and north MS has been upgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory. The Advisory goes into effect at 6pm Sunday and continues through 6am Monday. It includes Memphis and Shelby County, Tipton County, Fayette County, and DeSoto County. Expect light rain on Sunday to change to snow by evening as very cold air moves in behind an Arctic cold front. Accumulations of an inch or so are expected in the metro area, with up to 2" to the east of the city, mainly overnight Sunday night. Light snow or flurries could continue into Monday morning and driving conditions could be hazardous for the lighter-than-normal President's Day commute Monday morning as temperatures bottom out in the upper 20s.

In addition to this Advisory, there is also a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for northern parts of west TN (not including the metro area) overnight tonight, as up to 1-2" of snow and sleet are expected overnight before becoming light rain Sunday.
