Snowstorm Affecting Travel In Cookeville Area

Depending on where you are today, you can look out the window and see anywhere from two to six inches of snow. The National Weather Service says even more snow is being forecast for tonight and tomorrow, which will add to the accumulation. Salt trucks have been out, but authorities are saying that you should avoid any unnecessary travel in this kind of weather. If you DO have to get out, "Slow down and be aware of your surroundings." That's the advice of Cookeville police. Police say in spite of the efforts of road crews, many thoroughfares throughout the area are snow-covered and not expected to improve much until it stops snowing.
