Snow Again This Morning

(gorgeous view from the Cookeville Webcam )

As we awake this morning, we are greeted with snow on cars, rooftops, fences, and some on the ground.  One thing I notice is black ice on the streets.  This is a particularly dangerous situation.  The reason it is dangerous is you cannot see it when driving.  The roads look perfectly normal yet it has a very slippery patch of frozen precipitation on it.  Driving can be difficult with the presence of black ice.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

Good call on closing schools today.  Several counties in our immediate are out including: Clay, Cumberland, Grundy, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam (us), Sumner, and Trousdale.  Fentress will run one hour late today.  Private School in our area closed is Heavenly Host.

Be careful out there today, especially this morning.  Getting some reports of accidents and do know that city salt trucks are out this morning working on the slick spots.

Looks like a fair amount of the Volunteer State saw some snow from this system. Memphis metro was left out, but that's typical. Some suburbs on the northeastern fringes saw a dusting yesterday morning but that was it. Glad you guys got a pretty morning with some snow on the ground!
