Tennessee Dealing With Significant January Winter Storm

Forecasters expect a significant winter storm to sweep across Tennessee this weekend that could cause power outages, traffic delays and numerous safety risks.

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency officials have declared a state of emergency ahead of a major winter weather system that is moving into the state.

Freezing rain, sleet, snow and high winds will create blizzard-like conditions in some areas of the state. Conditions may lead to stranded motorists, power outages and people in need of shelter.

The eastern portion of Tennessee will likely see freezing rain, with snowfall moving into the area on Friday evening. On Friday night, the northern portion of Tennessee will see snowfall, while the Chattanooga area is likely to see rain.

Kentucky Bracing for Major Winter Storm

Kentucky Bracing for Major Winter Storm

Kentucky Emergency Management (KYEM) is bracing for a major winter storm, which is approaching the Commonwealth. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Kentucky as the weather event approaches the Commonwealth.

“Over the next 48 hours, a major winter storm is expected to impact many regions of Kentucky— potentially causing ice-related damage, service interruption and impassable roadways,” said Governor Bevin. “Our agencies are monitoring the conditions and coordinating communications with local officials and emergency personnel in preparation. Safety is our first priority; so it is very important to restrict travel to a minimum.”

Snow amounts have been forecast up to 18 plus inches east of Interstate 65 with six inches along the Ohio River corridor, to up to 14 inches in the central Bluegrass Region. Ice will be a concern in the southern regions of central Kentucky, which may cause power outages.

Officials warn this storm could disrupt services so citizens should be prepared! The best advice is to just stay home and avoid travel, but if you must travel allow extra time, take it slow and allow plenty of space between vehicles.

KYEM officials encourage everyone to remain alert and continue to monitor their local broadcasting stations and NOAA weather alert radios and to check on neighbors, the elderly and those with special needs.
