Mid-State wakes up to Spring snow, school closings, delays

Posted: Updated:

Much of middle Tennessee woke up to a dusting of snow on the grassy surfaces after an uncommon spring snowfall Monday into Tuesday morning.

Several schools were closed or had a two hour delay due to the overnight snow.

A half inch was reported on some of the higher terrain, particularly north and west of Nashville. Two or more inches were reported on the Cumberland Plateau as eastern parts of middle Tennessee adjacent to the Cumberland Plateau saw a half inch to one inch.

Temperatures will climb to the low or mid 40s Tuesday afternoon. It will still feel cold due to a northwest wind up to 20 mph.

A stray light shower is possible throughout the day as clouds will linger.

Drivers are urged to watch for slick spots on bridges and overpasses Tuesday night, even around Nashville, because temperatures will dip down to the upper 20s.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol told Nashville's News 2 that areas of SR-840 in Williamson County are quite slick because of the overnight precipitation. Drivers are urged to use caution in the area.

Watch Nashville's News 2 starting at 4 p.m. for an updated forecast.
