CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Snowflakes started falling Tuesday in the Tennessee Valley as the predicted winter weather system drifted southward, bringing cooler temperatures and moisture.

In what started as a very cold rain shower, the precipitation turned into fluffy white flakes as the temperatures and the winds dropped in the afternoon.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
