TDOT: Watch for wet spots turning to ice in East Tenn.

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Tennessee Department of Transportation is monitoring East Tennessee roadways for ice and snow Saturday after temperatures drastically dropped Friday.

On Saturday afternoon, Knoxville's Tennessee Highway Patrol district reported temperatures would stay below freezing across much of East Tennessee, Southeast Virginia and Southwest North Carolina. As a result, THP said patches of ice may remain on roads across the areas, especially in the shady areas of bridges and overpasses. THP said drivers should use caution driving on what appear to be wet spots, as they may actually be ice. Motorists should be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can develop first.
