Another breezy and cool day tomorrow as wintry weather moves in late Sunday night | WJHL
Storm Team 11’s forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and breezy conditions continuing through the night with a low as high as 24 degrees.
Wind warnings remain in effect for Tazewell, Smith and Grayson counties in southwest Virginia and Ashe and Watauga counties in North Carolina. These areas could see sustained winds of 15-25 mph and gusts of up to 45 mph. These notices will expire at 8am tomorrow morning.
We will see a mix of sun and clouds on Sunday with breezy conditions. The maximum temperature tomorrow will be 36 degrees.
Clouds will increase on Sunday night as the temperature drops to 24 degrees.
Winter Storm Watches have been issued for all of Northeast Tennessee and the following counties in Southwest Virginia: Lee, Scott, Washington, Russell, and Wise. This will come into effect on Monday at 7am until 1pm on Tuesday.
Skies are expected to be cloudy on Monday with a 60% chance of snow. The maximum will be 33 degrees.
As cold Arctic air dominates the region, warm air will rise above cold air across our region resulting in the snowfall we will see across the region. Light snow begins to move in late Sunday night and becomes widespread across the area early Monday morning. Around noon Monday, warm air from the south will push into the area and turn some of the snow into rain and possibly a wet wintry mix as well. This will also push the main snowfall into western Southwest Virginia and eastern Kentucky Monday evening and Monday night. The intensity of the snowfall will diminish until Tuesday morning.
Snow will be possible Monday night into Tuesday with a low of 23 degrees.
Snow showers will slowly taper off through Tuesday. The maximum will be 29 degrees.
At this time, Storm 11 is forecasting about an inch of snow in the upper elevations of northeast Tennessee, North Carolina, and southwest Virginia. The Tri-Cities and areas along the I-81 corridor are expected to get about 1-3 inches of snow. Areas west of I-81 could see 2-4 inches of snow. The main uncertainty regarding the forecast at this time is that snow totals are moving toward the western portions of the viewing area. The National Weather Service has not yet issued winter storm watches across eastern Kentucky as it is still a little early to determine more specific snow totals across the region.
Skies will start out clear Tuesday night as arctic cold enters the region with a low of 9 degrees.
