Winter Weather Advisory until noon for the Tennessee mountain counties. Scattered snow showers are possible through the early afternoon area-wide, especially across the higher elevations. Be alert for icy roads in spots as temperatures are near or below freezing most areas.
We are tracking a windy and colder day in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. A front is exiting from the southeast through the southern Appalachians. A high will settle in with colder conditions plus gusty winds today. We will see clearing skies in the afternoon as well.
The clear skies tonight will allow for a quick cool down as temperature drop to about 10° below where they should be for a late January night.
The high will remain as the main feature for Saturday in the Tri-Cities with plenty of sunshine and a warmer day. The warm-up is thanks to the high sliding to the east and kicking winds around to the south.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a storm system to the west and north that will merge and slide into the area with a 60 percent chance of rain on Sunday. We expect to be warm enough for mainly rain during the day (but a mix is possible north and east of the Tri-Cities).
Sunday night will again see a rain change to snow showers for the region. We will head into Monday with a rain and snow chance. The temperature will be mainly in the low 30s and bring snow showers for most areas.
This will, once again, bring a chance for slippery roads to be on the alert for as your drive into work. This will be especially true in the mountains. Some accumulation is possible Sunday night and Monday.
Tuesday into Wednesday will be partly cloudy before the next system arrives with a rain chance late in the day. The chances will linger in Thursday as a rain and snow mix, before partial clearing in the afternoon.
Highs will be in the mid 30s today and mid 40s Saturday and Sunday, with mid 30s Monday. We are back to the low to mid 40s Tuesday and Wednesday before cooling again to the mid 30s for Thursday. Lows will be in the mid teens tonight and mid 20s to near 30 Saturday and Sunday nights. Back to the upper teens Monday night and back up to the mid 20s Tuesday and Wednesday nights, before cooling again to the mid teens Thursday night.
