Chilly start to your Thursday, with lows in the low to mid 20s. It was 25 degrees for the low in Knoxville.
Partly cloudy today, with a light, cool breeze out of the North. Temperatures are warming into the low 40s, so while it's still a chilly day, at least it doesn't feel dramatically colder. Sunset 6:13 p.m.
Oak Ridge 41°
Middlesboro, KY 34°
Tonight will become cloudy again, with isolated flurries to scattered snow showers starting early Friday morning. The low will be around 25 degrees.
Friday will be cloudy, with scattered snow showers. The heaviest snowfall will be in parts of Northeast Tennessee Southeastern Kentucky, and the Smokies. I'm expecting a 1/2 inch to 1" in in spots of the Valley and Southern Plateau. Northeastern Tennessee, Southeastern Kentucky, and the Smokies will find 1-2+ inches in areas. A trace amount of snow may fall in some parts of the Southern Valley.
With snow showers, the snowfall and accumulations are a little more sporadic.
That will change to spotty rain showers in the lower elevations, with a high of 43 degrees. Spotty snow showers will linger in Southeastern Kentucky, Northeast Tennessee, and the Smokies helping those final higher totals for some into Friday night.
Saturday will become mostly sunny, but only hit 32 degrees for a high.
We are watching the next potential for snow. Right now it looks like it will start as snow Sunday night and change to rain Monday, then back to freezing rain, sleet, and snow on into Monday night. We'll keep you updated!
Have a great day!
