Forecast Discussion

A northwesterly flow remains in place, although the much of the associated snow has ceased (excpet for along the western edge of the Smokies tonight). Clouds will continue to hang around early this evening as an area of moisture sits over the KY and TN valleys, allowing for the additional snow showers along the Smokies. Much colder air slides over the Southern Appalachians tonight while our winds remain gusty at times.

On Wednesday the strong area of low pressure will pull further from the area allowing for high pressure to build in from the NW. After a cold start to Wednesday, Temperatures will warm up to near-seasonal levels Wednesday afternoon, with even milder conditions on Thursday.

Another clipper system approaches Thursday, dragging yet another cold front through the area Thursday night. Sprinkles are possible ahead of the cold front Thursday afternoon, then flurries are possible Thursday night behind the cold front. High pressure builds in for Friday with colder temperatures.

Temperatures remain chilly through the weekend as a storm organizes to the west. The disturbance will spread clouds and moisture over the region from west to east during the day Sunday. Rain or a rain-snow mix develops during the day on Sunday, possibly changing over to snow Sunday night before the storm ending Monday morning. Details are a little fuzzy on the Sunday storm so please stay tuned. What is certain is that much colder air will arrive in the wake of the storm early next next week.
