A low pressure system moving toward the Mid-South from Texas on Christmas Day, brings excitement for some, while most of us, a big headache.

Models are still in disagreement on the exact timing of this system and what areas will be impacted the most. It is very likely that West Tennessee will be seeing snow on the backside of the low pressure.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from Tuesday afternoon though late Tuesday night. These areas include the Missouri bootheel and northeast Arkansas.

Expect showers for the most of the day on Christmas. As temperatures fall, the rain will turn into snow. Strong gusty winds will accompany the snow which will reduce visibility.

A winter storm means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet, or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
