Potentially severe weather moving into region

KNOXVILLE (WVLT) – More potentially severe weather will be moving into East Tennessee over the next few days.

“Look for rain on Friday in Knoxville with a rain and snow mix late Friday night and Saturday morning,” said WVLT Chief Meteorologist Scott Blalock.

Accumulation is not expected in the Knoxville Area on Saturday morning, but some is possible in the mountains.

Currently, a winter storm warning has been issued for Friday night and Saturday morning for counties north and west of Knoxville.

“Cities north of London and Corbin in Kentucky will likely get one to two inches of snow with three to six inches in western Kentucky,” said Blalock. “Two to four inches of snow are expected north of the Nashville area from Clarksville in Tennessee to Paducah, Kentucky.”

The storms could make for hazardous road conditions.

Anyone traveling north or west of Knoxville on Friday night or Saturday should expect to encounter dangerous travel conditions.
