Morning flurries & snow showers

Snow showers and flurries are greeting parts of our area to start Wednesday, with the sky clearing this afternoon.

WHAT TO EXPECT

This morning is mostly cloudy, with more snow showers from the northern Plateau, through Northeast Tennessee and Southeastern Kentucky and along the Smokies. This is leading to some light accumulations in these higher elevations. The low is around 29 degrees, with a few flurries on into the day.

We'll stick with some snow showers in the mountain through this afternoon, while the rest of the area sees the clouds leaving. The high today is only 38 degrees and it feels even colder, with a chilly wind.

LOOKING AHEAD

Tonight will be clear and cold, with a low around 24 degrees! We'll have some areas of frost, with a light breeze.

Thursday will then have increasing clouds in the afternoon to evening hours, so plenty of sunshine and a chilly high of 44 degrees.

Thursday night will be mostly cloudy, with isolated snow showers dropping into Southeastern Kentucky, the Plateau and the Smokies. The low will be around 32 degrees in the Valley, and upper 20s in the higher elevations.

Friday will be mostly cloudy, with highs in the low to mid 40s.

We're watching another system that will bring showers to our area this weekend. We'll have mainly rain in our area by Saturday afternoon to evening, then Saturday night will be cold enough for some changeover to a wintry mix to snow in the higher elevations. We'll get back to mainly rain Sunday, then Sunday night to Monday comes with a more widespread shift to sleet and snow. With previous rainfall, the accumulations will be cut down. We'll keep you updated on the latest on WVLT News!

This leaves us with highs in the low 40s Saturday, then right around 40 Sunday and Monday.
