Nashville, TN – Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing through the mid morning hours on Tuesday. As a result many secondary roads particularly across northwestern and northern portions of middle Tennessee will likely remain coated with a slippery mix of snow, sleet, and ice.
For other locations where roads were wet when the sun went down patches of black ice may form, especially on bridges and overpasses. Black ice is particularly dangerous since it is hard to spot.
