KNOXVILLE (WATE) - High pressure is in control across the region keeping the lower levels of the atmosphere dry, but clouds continue to stream in underneath it.

There is also a small disturbance sliding across Alabama that is trying to squeeze out some moisture early tonight. This means we could see a few stray flurries, but with the lower levels rather dry, we won't see accumulating snow.

It will be chilly overnight with everyone dropping down into the 20s and we will remain below average for Friday as highs struggle to climb out of the lower 40s under a mix of clouds and some sun.

Another disturbance will slide to our south early Saturday providing another opportunity for a light wintry mix. At this point, accumulations, if any, would be trace amounts to none and mainly across the Plateau and Kentucky.

The weather pattern remains very active over the next few days including Saturday night into early Sunday, which could bring a few more random flurries to the region and then again on Monday. At this time, a slightly stronger system is poised to affect the region late Tuesday into Wednesday with yet another opportunity for a wintry mix for many across the region. Stay up to date with the 6 Storm Team for the latest weather information, because we are On Your Side.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a few flurries possible. Low: 25°.

Friday: Cool with a mix of clouds and some sun. High: 42°.

Saturday: A.M. flurries/sprinkles (30% coverage) for some, then some P.M. sun. High: 47°
