Knoxville (WVLT) A weak low pressure system south of Knoxville gained strength during the day on Christmas producing sleet and light rain by the afternoon.

Most roads were only wet with no freezing conditions reported.

Most of the sleet changed quickly to light rain.

Meteorologist Scott Blalock expects this wintry mix to come to an end tonight with no accumulation expected.

A mix of rain, sleet, and wet snow is still possible in the mountains near the North Carolina border.

Lows could dip to near freezing by the morning, so travel with caution, especially in the high elevations.

All of the precipitation will end late tonight with partly sunny skies back on Wednesday.

Highs Wednesday will be in the mid 50's.
