MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A winter weather warning is in effect for counties in West Tennessee.

The National Weather Service is advising residents of the effects of freezing rain and sleet that continues to fall Tuesday in the region.

Meteorologists are warning of ice accumulation on roads and highways, which could be a hazard to motorists.

In Tipton County, the sheriff’s office reports trees and power lines have fallen on roadways. A shelter has been opened to assist people whose homes are without power.

In Shelby County, the Office of Preparedness says ice has caused tree limbs to break in some sections of the county. Some street flooding also has been reported.

The winter weather warning is in effect until midnight.
