MLK Day is sunny, but polar vortex to return with snow Tuesday


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Martin Luther King Day is sunny with afternoon highs in the mid-50s, however it is windy.

The weather will take a dramatic turn beginning Tuesday. Lows tonight dip into the low 30s, but it won't get any warmer on Tuesday. Snow moves in Tuesday morning. We have a Winter Storm Watch for the mountains above 2500 feet beginning at 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Light snow continues, off and on, all day on Tuesday. Accumulations will be light. The valley can expect flurries to possibly a half inch in spots.

The plateau is looking at an inch, but the tops of the mountains could get more than 4 inches of snow.

This is only the beginning of cold weather because the polar vortex is back! The snow moves out, but lows on Tuesday night will be in the lower teens and single digits.

Wednesday is sunny, but highs are only near 30. Get ready!

MLK Day: Sunny. Breezy. High: 54

TONIGHT: Clouds Thicken, Rain/Snow Late Night. 40%. Low: 32

TUESDAY: Light Snow. Windy. Temps Falling. High: 35 and Falling
