Episode Narrative A strong cold front pushed into extreme Northwest Tennessee during the early morning hours of December 15th, 2008. Very shallow arctic air filtered into the region behind the front. Rain changed over to freezing rain and sleet. Ice and sleet accumulations occurred with amounts ranging from around a half inch up to 2 inches. The ice accumulations made roads hazardous to travel and many accidents occurred as a result.
Event Narrative Freezing rain switched to sleet. Minor ice accumulations occurred while up to an inch of sleet accumulated on the ground across Obion County. One death occurred from a traffic accident which occurred on slick roads.
