WVLT WEATHER ALERT - Back to WINTER

You may want your mittens or gloves, ear muffs or scarf and possibly a few extra layers.

In fact, you may quickly realize that the weather pattern has changed again. This time, it's back to winter with cold, arctic air.

Monday started with temperatures in the low 20s to low 30s, but the wind made it feel even colder. We had flurries, sleet, and some snow showers in the mountains added up to around a half an inch.

Temperatures are staying 15 to 20 degrees BELOW normal through Wednesday! The average low for Knoxville this time of year is 36 degrees, and the average high is 58 degrees.

With all the rain that we have had, the puddles that linger can change to ice patches. Ice is more likely on colder surfaces, like your deck, parking lots, and bridges and overpasses, as well as back roads.

The freezing nights may add to some of the damage we've already suffered lately. The freeze-thaw can also cause slides and the ground to shift.
