Sunday will be cloudy and breezy with an 80% chance of rain mixed with some sleet at times early in the Tri-Cities followed by a chance of snow through the afternoon and early evening. Parts of the Tri-Cities will have the chance of an inch or two of snow on the backside of this system. It looks like snow and some sleet will be possible east of the Tri-Cities and also across parts of southwest Virginia, especially across portions of Smyth and Tazewell counties.

The high in the Tri-Cities Sunday will be 43 degrees.
