Brief Period of Wintry Weather or Rain This Morning
Cloudy and chilly Thursday with a wave of moisture moving across the area this morning. The best chance of accumulating snow will be the farther north you live with a wintry mix or all rain farther south in east Tennessee. If you experience snow, it will mostly end by 8 or 9 AM. If you still have moisture overhead after that, it will be rain. We’ll keep the chance of showers through the midday hours. As much as 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected across southwest Virginia. A few spots near the West Virginia and Kentucky may get 3 inches of new snowfall. Snowfall in the Tri-Cities area of east Tennessee should be a dusting or less.
The clouds will stick around all day despite the moisture moving out. There could be a few peeks of sun mainly northwest of the Tri-Cities by the end of the day. A high around 45 degrees, upper 30s to near 40 degrees in the mountains.
A few breaks in the clouds tonight with partly to mostly cloudy skies overall. Cool and quiet. Temperatures in the low to mid 30s early Friday.
Dry Next Few Days
Clouds at first Friday morning before a gradual clearing trend. Turning partly cloudy in the afternoon. A high of 48 degrees.
Mostly clear and cold Friday night with a low of 23 degrees.
It will be a chilly start to the weekend Saturday despite abundant sunshine! High 42.
Sunshine Sunday will give way to mostly cloudy conditions in the afternoon. Showers may move in as early as Sunday evening ahead of our next weather maker.
Rain Early Next Week
Rain is much more likely Monday. It may be heavy at times with an inch or more of rain possible in many spots. Stay tuned!
