Winter Weather Advisory
Issued: 3:32 PM EST Feb. 7, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 7 am Monday to 7 PM EST
Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Morristown has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for snow... which is in effect from 7 am Monday to
7 PM EST Tuesday.

* Event... a cold front is expected to move through the area and
bring with it colder temperatures and chances for snow. Light
snow could occur during the early morning hours on Monday before
temperatures warm up during the day switching precipitation over
to rainfall in the lower elevations... however the higher
elevations will likely remain cold enough during the daytime
hours to receive much more snow due to the cold temperatures.
Cold air then returns Monday night and remains over the
area... any precipitation that falls after Monday night will be
snow. During the event places could see 2 to 4 inches of snow
with locally higher amounts possible... especially in the higher
terrain.

* Timing... snowfall will be possible early Monday morning... then
more snow will occur Monday night through Tuesday night.

* Impacts... the snow could cause hazardous driving
conditions... especially on secondary roads.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow are
expected or occurring... but accumulations are expected to be light.
Driving and walking may be difficult on untreated roadways and
sidewalks. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited
visibilities. If you must travel... slow down and allow extra time
to reach your destination.





Special Statement
Issued: 2:26 AM CST Feb. 7, 2016 – National Weather Service


... Winter weather returns to the Tennessee Valley and southern
Appalachians region late tonight through Wednesday...

A cold front will sweep across the Tennessee Valley and southern
Appalachians late tonight and early Monday morning... bringing with
it a mixture of rain and snow. As the cold air moves into the area
on Monday... the precipitation will change to all snow during the
afternoon. Snow showers and snow flurries will be possible Monday
night through Wednesday... due to the combination of sufficient
moisture and the subfreezing air in place. There is still some
uncertainty of the strength of this system... but some light
snowfall accumulation is expected across the valley... with some
higher amounts expected across the mountains of southwest Virginia
and east Tennessee.

Besides the snow... much colder temperatures are expected through
the middle of the work week. Highs Monday will be early in the
day... then fall during the afternoon. Highs Tuesday and Wednesday
will range from the upper 20s in southwest Virginia to the middle
and upper 30s across the southern valley... with lows in the teens
and 20s.

Please listen to NOAA Weather Radio or your local media for the
latest updates on this system.
