   Mesoscale Discussion 0095
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0353 PM CST Mon Feb 15 2021

   Areas affected...central/eastern Kentucky and a small part of middle

   Concerning...Freezing rain 

   Valid 152153Z - 160200Z

   SUMMARY...Freezing rain and/or sleet will continue over the next 2-4
   hours across the discussion area.

   DISCUSSION...Recent radar mosaic imagery indicates a substantial
   band of freezing rain across eastern Kentucky near JKL and EKQ. 
   Precipitation has briefly lessened in intensity to the west of this
   band, although newer development of showers of mostly freezing rain
   (perhaps mixed with sleet) are occurring upstream near BNA - likely
   due to an advancing shortwave centered over Louisiana.  The
   precipitation continues to fall amid a shallow, cold airmass and may
   be mixing in with sleet at times.  Accumulations of 0.05-0.1 inch
   per hour have been noted with ongoing activity, and redevelopment
   across Middle Tennessee suggests that much of the region will
   continue to experience freezing rain over the next 2-4 hours.
