Light snow fell across much of Middle Tennessee Saturday, leaving a coating on many surfaces and on some area roadways.

Areas north of the Interstate 40 corridor saw heavier precipitation.

Accumulations ranged from around one inch to pockets of two inches in the counties bordering the Tennessee-Kentucky state line, including the communities of Paris, Dover, Springfield, Portland, Lafayette and Clarksville.

Main roadways in Clarksville were salted, but side roads and parking lots were coated Saturday morning, leaving them slick for drivers.

Authorities cautioned motorists to drive slowly, particularly around sharp curves.

Very light accumulations occurred south of I-40.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation began treating roadways Friday afternoon, ahead of the precipitation.

Briley Parkway appeared to have a thin coating of snow Saturday morning and drivers were urged to use caution.

By Noon Saturday, temperatures climbed above freezing and conditions improved.

However, some area events were canceled due to the weather.

ACT testing was canceled at Donelson Christian Academy, Pope John Paul II, Stewart County High School, Austin Peay State University and White House High School.

White House said testing will be held Saturday, February 15.

The Regional Archery Tournament at Logan County High School in Russellville, Kentucky was also postponed until Saturday, February 15.
