Snowfall totals are only predicted in trace amounts in the valley. Snowfall totals are only predicted in trace amounts in the valley.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, breezy and cold with scattered light snow/flurries. (40%-60% coverage). Accumulations limited to higher elevation areas of the Plateau and Mountains. Low: 29°.

Sunday: Light snow/flurries move out with the sunshine returning during the afternoon. High: 43°.

Monday: Mostly sunny and a little. High: 52°.

After a sunny and chilly Saturday, we will once again see a quick moving clipper system roll across the region overnight.

As is the case with these systems, they don't have much in the way of moisture with them, but some light snow showers/flurries will be possible for most. Accumulations will be limited to the higher elevation areas of thepPlateau and S.E. Kentucky, where they could see up to 1" and across the higher peaks of Smokies where 1"-2" will be possible.

Most of the valley will only see a trace or just flurries, but temperatures will be in the mid-upper 20s area-wide, so watch for a few slick spots on secondary roads especially.

This clipper system moves out early Sunday bringing some sunshine back to the area by the afternoon, with highs climbing into the upper 30s-lower 40s.

Monday looks to be the best of the next 7 for outdoor plans, because we will see sunshine and highs in the upper 40s-lower 50s.

Late Monday night into Tuesday, another clipper system will blast through, with some spotty light snow, but more importantly, another shot of colder air.

Temperatures will remain at or below freezing from early Tuesday all the way through the end of the week.
