Snow, Below-Zero Temps Hit Hard

Sun Photo By O.J. Early

Hardly visible through the falling snow, Greene County Road Superintendent David Weems plows through a portion of Blue Springs Parkway about 3 p.m. Tuesday. Crews from the County Highway Department worked all night into Wednesday, salting and plowing local roads.

Let the faucets drip. Bring the pets inside. Check on family.

That's the advice of the National Weather Service staff in Morristown for getting through the remainder of the Arctic chill that has set into the region.

Meteorologist Derek Eisentrout said in an interview this morning that area residents should keep doing all those same safety precautions again tonight, as temperatures will be right back down into the single digits.

Eisentrout said he thought that most of Greeneville was experiencing zero-degree weather early this morning, with temperatures projected to rise only to about 20 degrees at its warmest today.

"It actually got to minus-2 at the office today in Morristown," he said.

Rob Ellis, director of the University of Tennessee AgResearch Center at Greeneville, said that the center recorded an overnight low of minus-6 degrees.

He said snowfall was at three inches.

The UT Center, located on East Allens Bridge Road, is the official weather station for Greene County.

Tomorrow will be frigid, too, according to Eisentrout, who said Greene County should expect about 9-10 degrees in the morning, with temperatures climbing slowly into the afternoon.

Both today and tomorrow will be clear and dry, he said.

"[Temperatures] will rebound to 37 by Thursday afternoon," he said. "That will be the first time we'll see temperatures above freezing in a few days."

At that point, the approximately 2-3 inches of snow that he said fell around Greene County on Tuesday will likely begin to melt away as the warming trend continues.

The Greeneville Sun recorded 3 inches around the downtown area this morning from Tuesday's snowfall.

Both Greeneville and Greene County schools remained closed.

Several people in restaurant drive-thrus this morning were opting to open their car doors rather than try to roll down creaking or solidly-frozen windows.

Others were unable to open their car doors at all.

Eisentrout said a sunnier outlook is on its way, however.

By Friday, the temperatures will be "seasonal" at a 45-degree high, followed by even warmer-than-normal temperatures on Saturday, with a high of 51.
