MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - With a busy weekend ahead, and the threat of wintry weather in the air, the Shelby County Office of Preparedness is keeping a close eye on the conditions.
The Emergency Operations Center will be staffed on Saturday, but it may even be open earlier depending on the weather.
"We have four Christmas parades, the Grizzlies play, the Tigers play. There's a marathon scheduled," said Bob Nations, Shelby County Office of Preparedness. "Hopefully by tomorrow [Thursday] afternoon we'll feel a little bit more comfortable knowing what the reality is going to be."
"I'm hopeful based on the ground temperature that there won't be an impact on most of the streets," added Robert Knecht with Shelby County Public Works.
