Rain, sleet, snow, ice in the forecast for Tenn.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Wintry weather threatens Tennessee from the Mississippi to the Smokies.

A difference of a few degrees will determine what form of precipitation falls Wednesday into Thursday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for a half-dozen counties near the Kentucky border north of Cookeville and a similar number from Morristown northeast to Bristol. The rest of Tennessee is under a winter weather advisory.

Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing, but not before precipitation begins.

Up to half-inch of ice is expected in Celina, in Middle Tennessee near the Kentucky line.

Most spots should see a combination of sleet, snow and freezing rain, changing over to rain.
