UPDATED: Snow exits Monday's forecast

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB)-- Hundreds of churches decided the roads are too dangerous to hold services the day after the historic White Christmas snowfall.  Slush on many streets froze into areas of ice as temperatures fell into the 20s late Christmas night into Sunday morning.  This produced hazardous driving conditions.  Ice on sidewalks also made walking to church difficult.  Slick spots are still possible Sunday night, so travel is not advised unless absolutely necessary.

Christmas snowfall amounts range from only a trace in Decatur/Ten Mile, TN to around 2.5" in Athens, TN to a whopping 8" in Murphy, NC.  About 4" have fallen on grassy areas here at WRCB and officially at Lovell Field at the Chattanooga Airport 3.0" was measured.  That makes Christmas 2010 the second snowiest on record for Chattanooga behind 5.1" in 1969.

Sunday has seen the return of light snow and flurries into parts of the Tennessee Valley, but this will diminish late tonight and snow is out of the forecast for Monday.

Here are remaining advisories from the National Weather Service by counties:

Winter Weather Advisory until 7pm EST Sunday for E. Polk, Bledsoe, Sequatchie, and Marion in TN; Cherokee and Clay in NC
