NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The snow that fell overnight and black ice on the roadways have closed schools in several counties, including Davidson County and several eastern counties in the mid-state.

Metro Nashville Public Schools transportation director said black ice in the Hillsboro and Cane Ridge areas led to announce the closure on Friday.

Dawn temperatures included 18 degrees in Nashville, 24 degrees in Knoxville, 25 in Memphis, 30 degrees in Chattanooga and 23 degrees in Bristol.
