White Christmas turns to holiday on ice

The delightful white Christmas is giving way to an icy day after.

Slush from the snow that blanketed Southeast Tennessee and North Georgia on Saturday was expected to lead to slick roads this morning.

The Chattanooga Police Department is recommending people stay off the roads except for emergencies.

“The big issue is going to be icing,” WRCB meteorologist Nick Austin said, with temperatures below freezing throughout the day.

He said today will be cloudy with a high of 33. Monday will be sunny but cold, with a high of 35 and a low of 18. Temperatures are expected to warm later in the week, with a possible high of 59 by Friday.

But for many people in Chattanooga on Saturday, the white Christmas was nothing but fun.

John Lytle and Suzanne Goodemote, both adults, went sledding like children Saturday afternoon at Renaissance Park.

“It’s magical to wake up on Christmas to snow!” Lytle said.
