Sunshine and Cold

A very cold start this morning across middle Tennessee as we are at 14° at sunrise. Highs later today will fight to reach 30° with sunny skies and a mainly calm wind. Overnight, clear and very cold with a low of 19° by Wednesday morning. Warmer on Wednesday, high of 45° with increasing clouds and winds gusting to 25 mph. Sunny on Thursday and Friday with highs of 50° and 58° respectively. Rain returns on Friday night through the weekend.

A Special Weather Statement is in effect this morning for slippery roads along the upper plateau. Up to 1" of snow fell late in the afternoon on Monday and into Monday night and with temperatures well below freezing, any remaining snow created very slippery conditions, especially on secondary roads. Motorists are urged to use caution during the morning commute.

Schools are closed in several counties on Tuesday, including Putnam, White, Cumberland, Fentress, Jackson, Overton, Pickett, and Van Buren. Schools are delayed by 2 hours in Clay, Grundy, Macon, and Trousdale.
