Warmer Weather Moves Into Tennessee, Warnings Lifted

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The National Weather Service has lifted all frozen precipitation watches and warnings in Tennessee as warmer air moves into the state.

Drivers can expect to find wet roads, with possible slick spots. If temperatures drop, the water on the roads could turn to ice as well.

Crews with Tennessee Department of Transportation will be out salting any problem areas. About 250 trucks and more than 1,000 TDOT crew members were on standby all night long, but did not have many issues to deal with.

The weather issue became one of flooding.  Flood warnings were posted for the northwest corner of the state and up the Tennessee River Valley in East Tennessee.

Expected high temperatures Wednesday included 40 degrees in Memphis,  38 in Jackson and Nashville, 51 in Chattanooga,  49 in Knoxville and 54 in the Tri-Cities.
