NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The snow has ended, but now we are left with dangerous wind chills and icy spots on the roads, particularly on secondary roads, sidewalks, and parking lots.
Most of our area is under a Wind Chill Advisory that began at 6 p.m. Tuesday. Check the latest weather advisories at wkrn.com/alerts.
Hundreds of schools closed Wednesday as conditions aren’t expected to get better overnight. Visit wkrn.com/closings for an updated list.
Some areas have seen some melting already Tuesday, thanks to the sunshine, but as temperatures drop overnight that water refreezes in the form of black ice. Drivers are urged to use caution overnight into Wednesday morning.
The temperature won’t warm above 32 degrees until Thursday afternoon.
