NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Christmas Eve snow storm that blanketed parts of the Midwest is heading southeast, expected to bring rare Christmas Day snowfall to Kentucky, Tennessee and even Georgia.
After dumping 9 inches of snow in Iowa by Friday morning, the storm was likely to dip south into Tennessee and Georgia on Saturday, then perhaps move north Sunday. Winter weather advisories were in effect from Kansas east to Kentucky and from Minnesota south to Arkansas on Friday.
The snow made traveling tough in northeastern Iowa, where the bulk of the storm hovered. Many people traveled Thursday in hope of beating the foul weather. The National Weather Service said that for the first Christmas in 17 years, Nashville and Atlanta could get more than just a dusting of snow.
