NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Legislature will be closed Tuesday because of inclement weather.

The speakers of the House and Senate sent emails saying there will be no legislative meetings in Nashville requiring the attendance of lawmakers or staff.

They said they would monitor the weather to see if committee meetings would resume on Wednesday and the rest of the week.

For Tuesday, employees will be excused with full pay and will not be charged vacation or compensatory time for the absence.

Most of the state was blanketed with a wintry mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow on Monday. Temperatures were not expected to get above freezing until at least Friday for most of the state.
