NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Many school districts opted to stay closed Thursday as a few more snow showers moved through Middle Tennessee.

Davidson, Wilson, Sumner, Cheatham and Robertson counties are among the schools closed, while Rutherford and Williamson chose to start late. See an updated list at wkrn.com/closings.

Metro Nashville Public Schools said the district was remaining closed due to icy conditions on many roads. 

Slick roads remain a concern into Thursday morning as temperatures in the 20s won’t rise until about midday.

Black ice could form, and bridges and overpasses are of particular concern as well as back roads that are less travelled.

On Thursday, temperatures should be closer to 40 degrees. On Friday, we’ll hit the mid-40s.

Another shot of very cold air is expected this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. We’ll monitor the threat of a more snow or a winter mix Sunday night through Monday morning. Temperatures dropping into the upper 20s mean another chance of some accumulating snow.
