Happy Monday to all! It was a cold one this morning and continues to be this afternoon. Though we weren't expecting accumulations in the valley, we were in the higher elevations. Check out the latest view from the Newfound Gap area of the smokies. A few inches fell overnight and will continue to grow through this afternoon.
As for our surface map, the higher elevations to the east will continue to feel snowfall through the day and into the overnight hours tonight. A few remnant snow flurries can't be ruled out through the day here, but no accumulations are expected. High's today will be chilly, in the upper 30's, near 40 degrees. As we get into Tuesday, a high pressure system will begin working in clearing things up and increasing temperatures.
Model guidance is still suggesting remnant snow showers/flurries continuing into this afternoon and evening as this system continues to push eastward. Getting into Tuesday, clouds will begin thinning out allowing for pockets of sunshine throughout the day. Wednesday, sunny skies return along with temperatures back in the low 50's.
The "chill" will continue to stick around into Tuesday, so be sure to dress warm. Have a good start to the work week!
