Sunday Night: Cloudy and cold with patchy drizzle (30% coverage). There could be some light freezing drizzle across the Plateau and higher elevations of the Smokies. Low: 34°.
Monday: Mostly cloudy and chilly with random flurries. High: 39°.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy. High: 43°.
It was a
cloudy, damp and cool Sunday across the region, and this weather will continue
overnight into Monday morning.
Patchy areas of drizzle and/or flurries are possible just about anywhere,
but amounts will be light.
The primary concern will be temperatures across the
Plateau and higher elevations of the Smokies. They could drop below freezing
overnight and there will be a threat for some very light freezing drizzle.
No major travel concerns are expected. However, use caution if you will be
traveling overnight or early Monday morning.
The pattern of mostly cloudy and cold
weather continues Monday, with highs in the upper 30s-lower 40s area-wide, and
the possibility of some lingering, random flurries.
We will dry out Tuesday
(New Year's Eve) and Wednesday (New Year's Day) with slightly below average
There still appears to be another storm system heading our way
late Thursday into early Friday, but the biggest question will be, how much
moisture will be available?
For now, we will continue to track how this system
develops through the week.
