December 26, 2010 by  

Tennessee Road Conditions, Many East Tennessee woke up to a weekend Christmas show rare snow! More snow is more likely as we head into the second half of our weekend for parts of the region.

Wrap around moisture will bring more snow accumulation on the plateau of the mountains & a day. Valley locations, north & central, picked up a dusting to 2 inches of snow overnight. Light accumulations are possible even where we see snow bands set up and persist.

Many roads are covered with snow. With temperatures below zero, it is likely to see ice on roads and especially of black ice on roads. This could cause slick and dangerous driving conditions.

Snow flurries light cone in the valley on Sunday afternoon when the snow will continue across the higher elevations. At noon on Monday, the mountains could see 6 “-12” of snow and the Plateau 2 “-4”.

Early on Christmas Day: Several inches of snow fell in places like Tellico Plains, Athens, Madisonville, Wears Valley, Gatlinburg and Cosby.

Whitley County, Kentucky reported about 3 inches on the ground. Slick conditions resulted in minor wrecks on I-75 at night, dispatchers said.

Dispatchers Bell, Harlan, Knox, and McCreary counties in Kentucky reported between 2 and 3 inches of snow on the ground.

In most central and northeastern Tennessee, reports of snowfall are not as important. Scott County dispatchers reported 2 inches of snow on the ground Saturday morning.

Dispatcher in the counties where there was accumulation says that some paths are smooth.
