Spotty rain and snow showers are possible throughout the day, mainly along the Plateau and up towards the mountaintops. We’ll see more sunshine this afternoon with a high near 49 degrees. It could feel a few degrees cooler with winds from the northwest gusting up to 20 mph.

Temperatures get very cold tonight which is why we have a Freeze Warning for the majority of East Tennessee. We’ll start out in the upper 20s Tuesday morning.


Spotty mountain snow showers continue Tuesday morning. We’ll see those mostly sunny skies with highs closer to the mid-40s. Those freezing temperatures return Wednesday and Thursday morning.

By Thursday, we’ll warm back up into the lower 60s, but the warm air doesn’t last long. A cold front arrives Friday bringing rain and cooler air for the weekend.
