KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Rain changed to sleet and snow in our area, and, as expected, we didn’t all see the snow. We do all feel the chill for the rest of the week.


We’re left cloudy and chilly for the rest of today. A small rebound in temperatures is possible, but that only puts us around 34 in the Valley this afternoon. The wind continues to make it feel even colder today, with a Northeasterly wind 10 to 15 mph and occasionally stronger gusts. The means it feels like the 20s at best most of today. Isolated snow continues in the Smoky Mountains, with a few flurries flying from the cold clouds.

Tonight stays cloudy, with a few light snow showers developing still, and a low around 22 degrees.


Friday only warms to around 30 degrees, since we have lingering clouds. This helps to create spotty flurries to mountain snow showers.

Temperatures rebound to upper 30s this weekend, with more sunshine, but the frigid mornings continue and we’ll have more frost with the clearing. Sunday afternoon to evening becomes breezy at times, helping to boost warmer air flow into our area.

We’ll make it to the mid 40s to start next week, then a few rain to snow showers move in Tuesday through Wednesday morning.
