CODE RED: Snow showers bring school delays, closures in Tennessee, Kentucky

FOX 17 News

FOX 17 News is in a Code Red Weather Alert as snow showers are expected in Kentucky and Tennessee overnight and Wednesday morning.

Scattered pockets of snow overnight Tuesday and a temperature dip to the upper 20s to lower 30 could result in slick spots for the morning commute. With temperatures below the freezing mark overnight, anything that’s falling will stick to the roads and could become dangerous.

This could result in a coating of snow in some places, mainly east of I-24 and the Cumberland Plateau.

Several schools have closed on Wednesday. Click here for the full list.

The best bet for a coating of snow will be in counties below in dark blue. The snow showers should stick around through late Wednesday morning.

SkyWatch17 Chief Meteorologist Katy Morgan said not all parts of the counties will see snow, but it will be scattered in spots.

The Winter Weather Advisory has also been posted for some southern KY counties until 11 a.m.
