Snow has moved into the Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky areas for the second time in less than a week.

An arctic swept through Monday night through Tuesday morning. A Storm 5 Alert was in effect until noon Tuesday. 

That system brought anywhere from a dusting to several inches of snow to parts of Tennessee. Some areas in southern Kentucky have seen at least nine inches of snow. 

Clarksville received about three or four inches of snow. Yet, Murfreesboro and Nashville only received an inch.

No matter the snow total, roads across the region were slick and treacherous. Folks in the Green Hills area of Nashville had a tough time tacking the rolling hills that were packed with snow. Several drivers either slid off the road or into another vehicle.

The good news? Unlike Friday, this system brought only snow rather than snow and ice.

Frigid temperatures also moved in with this front as highs will fall into the teens and 20s and lows in the single digits. 

Even though some were forced to brave the snowy road conditions, many Tennesseans enjoyed the snow day by playing with family or friends or staying warm at home.

Warmer temperatures move in by the end of the week.
