Many (but not all) are seeing snowfall on the ground this morning. Lingering flurries will be possible through the late morning, before partly sunny to sunny skies return this afternoon. If you are headed out on the roadways this morning, be sure to take it slow. TDOT is reporting the worst hit roads in the Foothills, Plateau, and Smokies, but all roads could be slick in areas. Take your time and account for slower travels times. Overall totals varied across East Tennessee, but here is a break down of a few spots:
Mcghee Tyson Airport: 2.3"
Pitman Center: 5"
Check out the Cosby area in the Foothills of the Smokies. These pictures come courtesy of @hikerman4606 on Twitter. Reports of around 6" were recorded as of 9am this morning. If you would like to submit your pictures and/or snow report, we encourage you to do so by tagging us on Twitter or Facebook (@SecretCityWx) or by emailing us @SecretCityWx@aol.com
Moving forward, another system could bring us a second round of wintry weather Thursday and into early Friday. The WPC suggests a 10-30% chance for at least at least 2.5 inches. These percentages are low, but for now the best opportunity looks to be for the higher terrain (plateau & Smokies). Most will likely see rain with a transition over to a few flakes late in the night Thursday.
Highs this afternoon will be chilly, only topping out in the mid and upper 30s. High pressure will enter overnight, warming things up into the 40s tomorrow and around 50 for Wednesday. Sunshine also finds us throughout the day tomorrow, before cloud cover edges back in Wednesday. Have a good one, stay warm, and send us any reports you may have!
