A Chilly Weekend
Sunday looks a little warmer with a good amount of sun. Clouds increase Sunday night with light rain and snow possible late. Occasional snow showers are likely Monday; especially in the morning. Snow will taper off for most Monday afternoon but snow showers will likely continue through the PM for the higher peaks and west facing slopes along the TN border. This should be a light snow event with accumulations generally an inch or less, although the higher peaks could have some higher totals. The rest of the week is dry. Tuesday remains cold but we begin a warming trend Wednesday through the end of the week.

High pressure gives us a sunny and cool Sunday but clouds begin to roll in Sunday night. There could be some light rain and snow late Sunday night ahead of a low pressure moving to our south during the day Monday. This low should provide just enough moisture for occasional snow showers Monday, especially early in the day. Snow is expected to taper off for most by Monday afternoon but the west facing slopes and higher peaks will likely have snow showers through out most of the day. Cold air and gusty winds move in Monday afternoon as well.
Snow totals should be on the light side for most, an inch or less. However, the higher peaks and west facing slopes along the TN border could get more than an inch. Tuesday is cold but the clouds depart. A noticeable warming trend begins Wednesday afternoon and continues for the rest of the week as high pressure to our south brings southerly winds and plenty of sun.
