‘Nasty’ weather headed our way

UPDATED 4:30 P.M. THURSDAY — A nasty winter mix is expected to hit Anderson County late Friday afternoon, dumping a layer of ice followed by freezing rain and several inches of snow.

Local officials received a briefing by the National Weather Service this afternoon, warning that our area should expect one-tenth of an inch of ice starting around 4 p.m., followed by freezing rain for several hours.

That will be followed by what is expected to be 2 to 3 inches of snow, which will continue to fall into early Saturday morning.
