KNOXVILLE (WATE) - 2013 was the second all-time wettest year on record for East Tennessee. Will 2014 bring more of the same?

New Year's Eve is partly cloudy but chilly. Highs are in the mid 40s.

As we count down to the New Year tonight, it's dry, but cold. Temps will be in the low 30s at midnight with overnight lows continuing to fall into the mid 20s.

On Wednesday, we'll see more sunshine with highs in the low 50s.

Big changes arrive on Thursday. Rain moves in. Temperatures rise to the low 40s toward mid-day, but then they dramatically fall during the afternoon. Rain will change into light snow. Right now, the best chance for light accumulation appears to be in the higher elevations, but we'll keep you updated. Even with not much accumulation, we should see the changeover even in the valley.

Friday is dry, but much colder with highs struggling to reach 30. Our next system arrives Sunday into Monday, and once again, it will bring a chance for snow.

NEW YEAR'S EVE DAY: Partly Cloudy. High: 44

NEW YEAR'S EVE NIGHT: Clear Skies. Low: 26

NEW YEAR'S DAY: Sunny. High: 52
