Nashville: Under emergency warnings, Christmas Parade cancelled

With Nashville and the entire mid-state area under emergency storm warnings due to the predicted incoming storms with freezing rain and icy road conditions, the Nashville Christmas parade, which had been scheduled for today, was cancelled.

Tree Lighting Ceremony Cancelled Because of Threat of Icy Conditions

The city’s annual tree lighting ceremony which was to be held on the Public Square tonight, Friday, Dec. 6 has been cancelled due to the threat of icy conditions.

Many of our area schools had already cancelled schools for today when we watched the local Nashville news last night, then other county schools in the area were closed either two or three hours early today, all due to the predicted weather.

The oddest thing about the weather in Tennessee is a well-known saying: 'If you don't like the weather, stick around. It is sure to change!' This was certainly true this week in Nashville as we experienced some really good 'shirt-sleeve' weather here, with temperatures in the 70's on one day, then down into the 30's later in the week.

Some warnings were issued that if you did not have to travel, to stay off the roads in some areas, and further north of us we had reports of about 2 inches of snow already.

Be safe on the roadways, and even in your own driveway and watch out for slippery spots when you walk or drive during this bad weather.

The attached video speaks to some of the bad weather around us, especially northward to Illinois and Ohio.
