Roadways are partially snow covered Thursday morning, but it's the bitter cold that's causing even more havoc thanks to 30 mph wind gusts and the single-digit temperature.
Temperatures in Knox County have dipped to 4 degrees, but the wind chill is even lower at -20, making conditions dangerous for travelers in the blowing snow. The wind chill is expected to inch up to -12 by 4 p.m. Thursday with a high temperature of 10 degrees possible.
