Tenn. – Clarksville City Government offices will be closed Tuesday because of the 4-6 inches of snow that fell overnight, creating hazardous travel conditions across the City, Mayor Kim McMillan announced.
City Public Safety departments will be on duty as usual and all essential City services will continue.
The Clarksville Street Department has added three road graders to its force of 30 trucks to help move snow off of City streets.
The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning, effective through noon Tuesday, with up to 6 inches of snow. Very cold air will move in with the snow, with temperatures dropping into the single digits, and wind chills of minus 1 to minus 3 can be expected.
Forecasters say roads are snow covered and slippery, and with temperatures remaining below freezing until Thursday, the snow will stick around for a couple of days.
