Sunday will feature cloudy skies, but we will still be able to rise into the low fifties by the afternoon. Rain is slated to arrive after noon on Sunday on the Plateau, around sunset in the Valley and in the early evening in the Smoky Mountains.
Since we will be warm Sunday, the transition to snow will take some time to develop. Look for a wintry mix of precipitation in the Valley right around the morning drive time Monday. Bridges and overpasses will be slick and possibly icy as the wet roads may have the chance to ice up and freeze in spots.
The mountains and plateau will see more snow, with the highest peaks in the Smokys getting around 3 to 6 inches of snow by the time Monday night rolls around. Snow totals on the Plateau will be in the 1 to 2 inch range. Either way you slice it, we will have a slick commute Monday morning, so allow extra time to get to where you need to be during that period.
Windy weather is likely Sunday night into Monday, with winds gusting near 45mph in the Smokies. Valley and Plateau winds will be stiff as well, gusting near 25 mph at times overnight.
Tuesday looks dry and sunny, with highs in the forties, while Wednesday will be partly cloudy and a little warmer.
