(AWARE) Tonight: Wintry mix of rain/sleet/snow (60%). Low: 32°

Wintry mix continues. Widespread travel issues are NOT anticipated, but a few patches of black ice can't be ruled out overnight into Monday. 

(AWARE) Tomorrow: Lingering, light wintry mix for some early (40%). High: 40°

Light rain/snow mix early in the morning. We could see trace amounts accumulate on grassy surfaces here in Knoxville. We'll start to dry out late morning and by the afternoon we'll see some sunshine.

(AWARE) Tuesday: Mostly sunny. High: 43°

It will be a cold start with temperatures in the mid 20s for the "warmest" spots. Areas that have measurable snowfall from the weekend will start out in the teens and potentially single digits for the highest elevations. The good news it that it will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 40s. 


Temperatures overnight lows fall closer to freezing. This means that any roads that are snow/ice covered and don't get treated could be slick overnight. Some lingering moisture early Monday will bring another opportunity for rain and snow across East TN. We could see accumulating snow, for some. The Valley could also see trace amount to around half an inch, especially on grassy surfaces. 

Use caution during the morning commute if you have travel plans, especially for areas north of the I-40 corridor and to the east. We will dry out Monday, with some sunshine during the afternoon. Highs in the mid 30s-lower 40s across the area.
