JUST MISSED US
We awake this morning with temperatures BARELY above freezing and rain falling. Our schools here in Putnam County are on time. This is a wonderful thing. Not too many miles to our north and west, they are dealing with freezing rain, one of the most dangerous weather events.
Currently at 6:45 a.m., we stand at 33.2° and expect to rise into the 40's today. We've measured .40" of rain overnight.
Some reports around our area.
Quarter-inch ice accumulations in northwest Tennessee
All rain in south Nashville, ice accumulating in north Nashville
