Sun and clouds today, showers and cold air tonight

If you are traveling Northeast know that you'll run into rain and snow. The snow that grazed the Smoky Mountains Wednesday morning is pulling further Northeast.

We have colder air on the way, so as scattered showers move in this evening into the overnight, we will see some changeover to wintry mix and snow.

It's a little cool today, with a high almost 10 degrees below normal. Mostly cloudy today, with a lull between rain chances.

Highs today:

Knoxville 48 degrees
Maryville 47 degrees
Oak Ridge 48 degrees
Dandridge 47 degrees
Oneida 46 degrees
Crossville 46 degrees
LaFollette 47 degrees
Tazewell 45 degrees
Morristown 46 degrees
Rutledge 47 degrees
Newport 44 degrees
Kingston 46 degrees
Madisonville 46 degrees
Sevierville 45 degrees
Gatlinburg 40 degrees

A batch of showers will approach late today, around 7 to 9 p.m. along the Plateau. This will start as rain but will change to a wintry mix and snow in the higher elevations and gradually become wet snow showers for some in the Valley as the temperature drops. Scattered snow will fall, mainly outside of Knox County but some spotty flurries and wet snow showers will be possible.

Tonight's low will be around 33 degrees, with a 60% chance for showers.

Thanksgiving Day will be mostly cloudy, as the showers taper off, so some wet snow showers and flurries will start the day. The high will be around 44 degrees.

Thursday night will be cold as clouds clear out, with a low of 26 degrees.

Friday will be mostly sunny with a high of 46 degrees.

Have a great day!

Ask Heather - temperature inversion

Posted: 11/05/2014 - You may have heard the term temperature inversion, or even cap or lid in the atmosphere, so Heather Haley explains what that means to you.
