Winter Weather is heading our way.  Paul Speranza says that Henderson County could see up to 6 inches of snow from Tuesday through Thursday this week.  The storm blowing through our area is the perfect match of temperature and moisture from the gulf to produce a winter storm.  On the tail end of the storm we could experience freezing rain and sleet Wednesday night into Thursday.  Take proper precautions to make sure that you and your families are adequately stocked with supplies and that your animals have a warm place to escape to during the storm.  For more details tune into WTZQ each morning to hear the updated forecast as changes will occur as we get closer to the event.
