Spotty snowfall, cold breeze

Clouds and showers are moving through our area on this Monday, but with the colder higher elevations we see the change to snow.

The mountains will continue to see on and off snow today, and will receive 1 to 3 inches as it continues into the overnight and early Tuesday morning hours as well.

Mostly cloudy today, with on and off showers. The showers are becoming spotty, and the temperatures really aren't budging. Northeast Tennessee, the Plateau and Southeastern Kentucky continue to see spotty snowfall.

Highs today:

We're spending the day in the upper 30s to low 40s in the lower elevations, but it feels more like the low 30s because of a Northwesterly breeze.

The Plateau, Northern East TN, Southeastern KY, and the Smokies are spending the day in the low to mid 30s, and it feel like the 20s most of the day because of that cold wind.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with spotty snow showers around the region as a whole. Temperatures will be around 28 degrees, so colder for all tonight, with a light breeze.

Tuesday will be cloudy, with scattered snowfall in the mountains and flurries fading early for the rest of the region. Temperatures will top out around 43 degrees.

Wednesday, the sunshine will be back and the high will be around 45 degrees.

Have a great day!
