The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Clarksville area continuing through noon Tuesday, with accumulations of 1-3 inches of snow possible.

The advisory also forecast difficult travel conditions, with reduced visibility and wind chills as low as 5 below zero. Temperatures that low can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.

The Clarksville Street Department continued to clear and salt streets Monday evening, as temperatures began to drop, and will be out in force Tuesday morning to move snow from the City’s main streets.

Clarksville Transit System will continue its regular route service for as long as possible, but if road conditions worsen, it will implement a “snow routes” plan, whereby buses avoid hilly areas and stay on the main roads. CTS will give one-hour advance notice of any changes in service during the weather event, and riders should check www.rideCTS.com or the CTS Facebook page for updates.
