NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Motorists are urged to drive with caution overnight and during the morning commute as roadways across the Mid-State are expected to refreeze, with spots of black ice as temperatures drop to the single digits overnight.

Many commuters reported slippery and icy road conditions during their morning commute.
In Williamson County some roadways were covered in a half inch of ice.
