Winter Weather Advisory posted
**11:30am - AMENDED FOR TIMES **
The NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all of west TN and northeast AR, valid until 4pm. MWN StormView Radar shows an area of precipitation moving in from the west at 9:30am, which is falling into the surface-based cold layer. Currently, it is 35 degrees at the airport and above freezing all across the city and its suburbs. However, temperatures are expected to initially drop as the precipitation moves in, possibly to very near 32 degrees, especially in northern suburbs. This is the reason for the Winter Weather Advisory. A thin glaze of ice may be deposited on overpasses, flyovers, and bridges, as well as exposed surfaces this morning. Temperatures should slowly rise later this afternoon and all precipitation after about 4pm should fall as rain. Further updates will be issued as conditions warrant.
