The snow many Middle Tennesseans will see when they step out this morning may be the best kind possible – a picturesque blanket of white on the grass and nothing on roadways.

That’s a much different view than at 7 p.m. Monday when a heavy, wet snow was falling across the Midstate. But warmer temperatures turned the snow to rain and washed away most of the frozen precipitation.

A winter weather advisory for Davidson County was cancelled, but a hazardous weather outlook remains in effect.

The National Weather Service says rain and snow are likely before noon Tuesday, then a chance of snow in the afternoon and evening.

There’s a 70 percent chance of precipitation across the region Tuesday, but with temperatures predicted to hover around 36 degrees, don’t expect snow to stick around.

Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Tuesday night, temperatures are expected to drop to a low around 23 degrees with a 20 percent chance of snow.
