A winter storm poised to strike Wednesday could dump more than five inches of snow on Greene County.
The National Weather Service (NWS) in Morristown predicts areas near Greeneville could see between five-and-seven inches of snow, meteorologist Jessica Winton said.
Greene County is under a winter storm warning from 1 p.m. Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday.
“It looks like snow will begin to move in early afternoon tomorrow and then pretty much be over Greeneville until mid-morning Thursday,” said Winton, interviewed around 5:30 p.m. today.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) treated many state roadways today, including in Greene County, TDOT spokesman Mark Nagi said.
“We will have crews on all routes and state routes tomorrow if the precipitation comes,” Nagi said. “Crews will stay on their routes as long as necessary.”
Crews from the Greene County Highway Department and Greeneville Public Works Department will begin salting local roads if and when snow starts falling, officials with both departments said today.
