Mild Monday to WVLT WEATHER ALERT with arctic air
Monday on the way to work, it's warmer with patches of fog. It's Veteran's day so any of the morning services & parades you'll still want a light jacket. We stay clear until the afternoon, so evening plans you'll want to take the rain gear.
Monday the rain will arrive just as the sun sets. We'll see good half inch of rain before a transition to snow during the early morning hours of Tuesday. Winds will be out of the north Tuesday so keep the winter gear close by even for those errands around town.
The snow will especially find a home in the mountains by Tuesday afternoon. Any plans for a hike in the Smokies will need to come with plans for a blast of arctic air. Some areas Tuesday night into Wednesday in the Smokies will fill closer to zero at times.
A WVLT Weather Alert Day will start on Tuesday and stay with us on Wednesday. Tuesday for a mix of precipitation in the morning and Wednesday because of bone cold temperatures.
Overall we're looking at around a dusting to half an inch of snow for the valley, up to 1-2" for areas above 1,000 ft and then the Smoky Mountains will have around 2.5" of snow accumulation. Most of the snow that reaches the ground outside of the Smokies will melt. A dusting on grassy surfaces and shaded areas is possible.
