NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A winter storm blanketed parts of the South with snow, freezing rain and sleet Thursday, tying up roads in Tennessee and Kentucky as the system tracked a path through Appalachia toward the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. 

A National Weather Service meteorologist said the storm began hitting greater Nashville on Thursday morning. About 4 to 6 inches had fallen across a large swath of Middle Tennessee by early afternoon, as the snow continued.
