Schools are out, many businesses have shut down, and even the police were responding only to emergencies as a nasty winter storm bore down Monday on East Tennessee.

In an ugly mid-winter display of frigid wrath, Mother Nature pounded Knoxville with freezing rain and snow. Although most neighborhoods had seen only a little of the white stuff by nightfall, city streets were rendered nearly impassable by ice.

And that is just the beginning, according to the National Weather Service in Morristown.
Anywhere from one to three inches of snow is expected to fall in Knoxville overnight and temperatures are projected to dip into the teens.

It's anyone's guess when East Tennessee may thaw out again, NWS officials indicated.
The mercury isn't expected to climb above the freezing mark for the next five days, with daytime highs in the 20s and overnight lows falling as low as two degrees by Friday morning.

Police are asking residents to avoid driving unless absolutely necessary.
