Up to an inch of snow fell over parts of Middle Tennessee Thursday night into Friday morning, rounding out a wild week of weather in Tennessee and closing several schools.

School systems that are closed include Davidson, Rutherford, Hickman and Williamson counties.  Others such as Macon County and Stewart County Schools are opening late.  Click here for a list of up-to-the-minute school closings and delays.

Several counties, including Davidson, Sumner and Robertson received a quarter to a half inch of snow.

Tennessee counties on the Highland Rim, northeast of Nashville, and on the Cumberland Plateau saw a half inch to one inch of snow.

The winter weather left behind some slick roads, especially on bridges and areas of high elevation. Drivers should use caution and be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities.

Skies will clear Friday morning.  High temperatures will only reach into the upper 20s.

Overnight lows are expected to drop to the lower 20s as clouds increase after Midnight.

More snow is expected Saturday morning through the early afternoon. Another coating is possible across Tennessee as an Alberta Clipper drives in from the northwest.

Up to one inch is possible east of Interstate 65 toward the Cumberland Plateau.

Temperatures will approach 40 degrees after the system exits.
