Snow falls in parts of East Tennessee

Weather

Snow has been falling on and off throughout parts of East Tennessee on Friday night, including on the Cumberland Plateau.

Many people have been planning for ice and snow in Crossville, but as of Friday night, the roads were still clear, according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation. County road crews will be monitoring things overnight, ready to salt if needed.

“With no ice and our road temperatures as warm as they’ve been – they were in the 40s – so, that’s another reason this isn’t sticking to the roads,” said Scott Blaylock, the Cumberland County roads superintendent.

Blaylock says he’s relieved that temperatures on the roads have been too warm for ice.

“In the morning, we’ll see what kind of calls we’ve had,” he said.

There was a mix of shoppers at local stores, some looking to stock up because of the weather, but others were grocery shopping because the storm hasn’t been so bad.
