NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — With lows falling to the 20s tonight, snow-covered back roads will remain that way overnight, and well-traveled main roads that melted the snow today will form black ice. In some areas, roads may be worse than they were after our first snowfall.
We are seeing a particularly bad situation in far southeast Middle TN in Franklin County extending down into northeast Alabama. Major icing is occurring there and many roads are impassable. The picture below shows a salt truck overtuned in Sewanee on Jump Off Road.
We also expect some more snow showers and snow flurries overnight. Accumulation should be minimal.
Snow totals from earlier have been in the range from dusting to trace amounts (mainly south of 40) to 2+ inches (closer to the TN/KY line). Here are a few totals:
White House (Robertson Co): 2″
White House (1 mile SE in Sumner Co): 1.2″
Hermitage & Inglewood: 0.75″

Nashville was below freezing for more than 3 1/2 days!
Warmer days ahead!
After this wintry event, the switch is flipped to warmer and wetter days as 2022 comes to a close.
By Tuesday, temperatures start to warm up, reaching low 40s for highs, but MUCH warmer air arrives by Thursday through the weekend with highs rising into the 60s. However, clouds increase with rain showers Thursday and Friday with off-and-on rain on New Year’s Eve, as well.
Wet weather may have impacts to the Music City Bowl on Saturday at Nissan Stadium.
There could be a few leftover showers during the New Year’s Note Drop in downtown Nashville, but skies should clear during New Year’s Day with highs in the low 60s.
It’s hard to believe that after the deep freeze we were in for more than 3 1/2 days, that we’ll end 2022 and begin 2023 in the 60s!
