Wind Chill Advisory issued for some counties as temperature plummets

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A few counties in Middle Tennessee were placed under a Wind Chill Advisory on Wednesday.

The counties include Benton, Henry, Decatur, and Carroll, and the advisory goes into effect at 12 a.m. and lasts through 9 a.m. Thursday morning. Get the latest weather alerts at wkrn.com/alerts.

The alert comes as the entire region felt wind chills below zero on Wednesday after yesterday’s round of snow pushed through the area. “Feels like” temperatures are also in the single digits.

Sunshine will make it feel more tolerable as the day goes on despite highs in the lower 20s.

Metro Public Works told News 2 that all of their salt trucks were out Wednesday morning treating secondary routes and then moving toward a neighborhood call list, where around 200 streets are listed.

Icy roads and hazardous conditions are county-wide; complaints are coming in from every corner of Davidson County, with some concentrated in the northern region. Public Works said they’ll tackle the largest neighborhoods first and stop once the sun goes down as salt becomes ineffective.

Overnight, temperatures will fall to the single digits into Thursday morning. This is pipe bursting weather, so make sure to give them extra attention.

A nice thaw will take place by the end of the week and into the weekend. Snow will completely melt as highs head to the 50s, even 60s, Saturday to Sunday. By then, our next weather maker is expected to arrive with rain on Sunday evening.
