Winter Weather Sweeps Through Tennessee

Posted

McKENZIE (January 6) — A winter weather system dropped significant snowfall in Tennessee during what Nashville’s State Emergency Operations Center declared a Level 3 - State of Emergency.

The winter weather began early Thursday morning with sleet that eventually developed into snow. The snow lasted throughout the afternoon, causing areas along and north of I-40 to receive four- to seven inches of snow accumulation.

The winter weather most significantly affected interstates and highways, making travel hazardous Thursday. Below-freezing temperatures overnight and during the day Friday continued travel concerns.

The Tennessee Department of Health closed most of its county health departments across the state due to the snow, and Governor Bill Lee ordered state offices closed Thursday and Friday.

Carroll County schools, along with several local businesses, closed Thursday and Friday due to inclement weather, providing many families with safe and exciting snow days.

The wintry weather conceded over the weekend. Temperatures remained low, but heavy rainfall occurred Saturday and Sunday, melting any leftover snow. The National Weather Service issued a flood warning Sunday afternoon.

The winter weather follows December’s record-high, seventy-degree temperatures and disastrous New Year’s Day storms.
