Watch Out For Black Ice Road Conditions Tonight
Email Print
Dangerous road conditions are expected across middle Tennessee tonight. Although most of the accumulating snowfall is now east of the midstate, isolated snow showers will still be an ongoing possibility overnight.

Additionally, as the Arctic airmass moves in, all of the moisture that remains on the road surfaces will turn to ice. Black ice, which is ice that one cannot see, will
be present on many road surfaces and can cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Motorists are strongly urged to use extreme caution if traveling tonight across any portion of middle TN. Slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination.

    A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.
