NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The snow, sleet and freezing rain have moved out of Middle Tennessee and Kentucky, but icy road conditions remain. Officials are again urging people to stay home.

Numerous crashes were reported Monday as travel conditions deteriorated throughout the day. Overnight, the snow stopped, but temperatures will only reach the 20s on Tuesday, so roads won’t have a chance to thaw.

During an update on Tuesday, a TDOT snowplow operator gave tips on how to drive during icy conditions.

Every county in Middle Tennessee is reporting icy road conditions.

Reporter Aaron Cantrell and photojournalist Quan McWil were able to help one Nashville driver who got stuck Tuesday morning.

To make matters worse, temperatures aren't expected to drift above freezing until late this week. Another winter storm looks to move in late Wednesday into Thursday, bringing more ice and snow.

Here's a look at road conditions across the area as of Tuesday morning:
