Winter weather continues to be a challenge

The state remains under a Level 3 State of Emergency with new accumulation and frigid temperatures expected to cause additional problems in some areas today. 

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency reported that Tennessee roadways were in good condition as of 7 p.m. last night, but warned that could change with any new weather moving into the area overnight. 

The mid-state remains under a winter weather advisory until noon today, accumulations are expected to be less than an inch, with wind chills in the single digits and temperatures in the teens. 

Light accumulations and extremely cold temperatures that moved into the area overnight bring new challenges, as crews continue to work to restore power to residents in the area.

Tennessee Department of Transportation reports that all lanes have been plowed and salted on I-24, I-40 and I-65 in Middle Tennessee, and crews are prepared to continue to work to clear roadways today. 

Residents are urged to use caution when traveling today, and are reminded to bring all pets in out of the elements. Temperatures are expected to continue to plummet today and will not be above freezing again until the weekend.
