More Snow in Cookeville Overnight

***3:00 PM UPDATE***
Snow is falling moderately again and sticking as temperatures are hovering around 22° with a north wind at 10 mph giving us a wind chill of 14°

***1:00 PM UPDATE***
Putnam County schools are now closed according to their website.

***12:40 PM UPDATE***
School closings for Wednesday have been announced in the following counties:
Fentress and Cumberland.

With more snow falling and temperatures in the lower 20's, I imagine more counties will be announcing they are closing as well.

***11:15 UPDATE***
Snow flurries flying in Cookeville.

Snow fell overnight in Cookeville.  It put down a light coating which made for some tricky travel this morning.  Temperatures won't help us for most of the day as we start out in the upper teens and look to get to around 25° later today for a high.

Most roads are in good shape with the exception of the typical neighborhood streets and the roads that are protected (tree-lined and facing north) from any melting.
