NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Snow, sleet and freezing rain began falling across Middle Tennessee overnight Monday, causing many school districts to close for the day.

Davidson, Rutherford and Williamson counties, among others, are closed Tuesday.  Check the latest list at wkrn.com/closings.

Drivers should use extreme caution during the morning commute.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation laid down brine, a salt-water mixture, ahead of the snow, which will help.  However, many back roads remained snow-coasted.  Check the latest road conditions at wkrn.com/traffic.

Snow accumulations for areas along and north of I-40 ranged from half-an inch to an inch.

From Williamson County to Rutherford County and areas southward, freezing rain created a layer of ice.

Winter weather across the country has also caused flight delays and cancellations at Nashville International Airport.  Check flight conditions at FlyNashville.com.
