Saturday Night: Rain likely (100% coverage). Some could be locally heavy. Low: 39°.

Sunday: Rain still likely early (100% coverage), but drier air moves in during the afternoon. High: 48°.

Monday: Mostly cloudy and chilly with a few flurries possible (30% coverage). High: 39°.

An area of low pressure will move from the Gulf of Mexico northeastward across the Smokies overnight Saturday into Sunday, spreading numerous rain showers across the region.

Some of the rain could be locally heavy, especially along the Foothills into the Smokies, and could cause some isolated flooding in some areas. 

This system pulls out quickly enough that the second half of Sunday should be drier for most people. There could be a few breaks in the clouds cover.

The clouds return Sunday night into Monday, as the colder air pours back in. This could lead to a few random, light snow showers or flurries for some, but it will not cause any concerns.

We will be dry and cool as we end 2013 and start 2014, but there are some hints at another storm system moving in late Thursday into Thursday night.

As of Saturday evening, it looks like we could see a rain/snow mix changing into snow for portions of the area, but specific details are definitely not clear at this time.
