NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Middle Tennessee can expect another difficult La Nina winter.
The National Weather Service outlook for December through February calls for warmer than normal temperatures, but wetter than usual conditions.
Nashville forecaster Bobby Boyd says that means more ice than usual.
"We may be looking at some icy conditions, perhaps a freezing rain or two. That doesn't mean we won't have any snow. We certainly will I'm sure, but I think we're going to be a little bit closer to more icy conditions at times."
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A study outlining a new gene therapy treatment for Hemophilia, developed at Saint Jude’s in Memphis, appears in this month’s issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — A report shows Tennessee's solar power and related industries provide more than 6,400 jobs and are helping put people back to work.
The report by the Tennessee Solar Institute shows the state ranks 22nd in installed solar power. The group says Tennessee needs to stay aggressive to compete with other states that have growing solar sectors.
The Institute’s Director of Programs, Dr. John Sanseverino, says solar’s cost-to-benefit ratio has finally reached the tipping point.
