UC Temperatures Drop To Single Digits After 4-7 Inches Of Snow

Four to seven inches of snow common across the Upper Cumberland Thursday as a strong push of artic air collided with moisture from a southern system.

Roads treacherous almost as soon as the snow began falling with more than an inch in just an hour. Thursday night, temperatures will fall to the single digits in many areas and Friday temperatures will not get out of the 20s.

The snow produced numerous wrecks as even four-wheel drive vehicles had trouble with traction on main roads.

Almost every sheriff’s office in the region has asked the public to stay off the roads Thursday because of slick conditions.

The storm has not produced major power outages. Upper Cumberland Electric has reported some scattered outages in the Macedonia Road and Bend Springs Road areas of Putnam County. In Jackson County, power is out in the Riley Creek and Hensley Creek areas. UCEMC also working to restore power in the Brush Creek and Moss Bend areas of Smith County.

As of Thursday at 4pm, Volunteer Energy reported no outages across the Upper Cumberland.

Power outages should be reported to your utility and not 911.

The Pickett County Sheriffs Department reminds any residents who might lose power they can call the Sheriff’s Department for assistance in arranging a warm place Thursday night. The numbers are 864-3210 or 863-3181.

Warren County Sheriff’s Department asks that you call 668-7000 if you need assistance and it is not an emergency.

Snow totals reported to the National Weather Service as of mid afternoon ranged from six inches in Byrdstown, six inches in Jamestown, seven inches in Carthage, four inches in Livingston.

Anyone flying out of Nashville International should check with the airline. 244 flights in or out of Nashville were cancelled Thursday. Most were due to the snow but some were COVID-related.
