Partly cloudy skies continue overnight with lows in the 20s.
- Tonight: (20%) chance for a few flurries, mainly over SE Kentucky and SW Virginia. Little to no accumulation expected. Partly cloudy skies. Low: 27°.
- Monday: Partly sunny and seasonable. High: 49°.
- Tuesday: (20%) chance for a light rain/snow mix in spots. Mostly cloudy. High: 46°.
After a beautiful day across East Tennessee, temperature readings tonight will tumble back into the 20s. There is a 20% chance for a few light snow flurries, mainly over Southeast Kentucky, Southwest Virginia and the Northern Valley. No accumulation is expected and most will stay dry.
Looking ahead, Monday will be one of our nicest days this week! Expect mostly sunny skies early with some clouds filtering in late. Highs tomorrow will be near 50 degrees in the Valley!
Tuesday continues to look less and less impressive and as a result I have dropped the chance for a rain/snow mix to 20%. There is a slim opportunity for a few snow showers/light rain showers Tuesday, with a better chance for precipitation now appearing to be over Southeast Kentucky, Southwest Virginia and perhaps the Northern Valley. Nonetheless, the chance for precipitation Tuesday remains low.
Mostly cloudy skies are expected Tuesday with highs in the mid 40s. Another shot of cold air returns for Wednesday with highs in the mid to upper 30s and partly sunny skies.
Thursday is a pleasant day as well with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 40s. By Friday we are watching the approach of our next system.
There is a 30% chance for a rain/snow mix Friday, which may transition over to snow showers Friday night. So far accumulation looks more likely for the Smokies, Southeast Kentucky and areas closer to the Tri-Cities. We will keep you updated!
It is a cold start Saturday with morning lows in the teens and low 20s. A few flurries could linger early Saturday morning before we dry out. By next Sunday highs are back into the mid 40s.
