MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  The mid-state’s weather is expected to be challenging in the second half of the week with rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain all in the forecast.

The National Weather Service says the effects of an approaching cold front will be felt beginning Thursday with up to four inches of rain expected in 48 hours.

As the cold front arrives in Middle Tennessee Friday, Nashville based Weather Service Meteorologist Trevor Boucher says things will really get dicey.

“Probably sleet at first, then a sleet snow mix and then eventually freezing rain as the cold front does come through. And so during that period of time that we’re going have that transition is going to be – depending on where you are in Middle Tennessee – beginning Friday, maybe late morning, and then occurring all the way through Saturday morning.”

Boucher says the system will likely leave behind as much as two inches of snow in the mid-state’s northwest corner with less than an inch of accumulation south of Interstate 40.
