At 6am, rain falls with light snow in the higher elevations. We saw flakes from our Monte Sano camera this morning. Rain along with a wintry mix is in the forecast through the late morning perhaps as late as the early afternoon. Minor accumulations are possible.
Higher Elevations Have A Greater Chance of Mix/Snow
Colder air moves into southern middle Tennessee and north Alabama by then. Air temperatures will likely be in middle to upper 30s at the surface. It will be cold enough aloft to produce a wintry mix for the higher elevations of Sand and Lookout Mountains. Everyone in Tennessee has a chance of rain/snow if not all snow later this morning. With surface temperatures above freezing, and with it already being wet, will allow most of the snow to melt on contact. Some elevated surfaces could have a slushy accumulation. Overall we aren’t expecting travel impacts today. Everyone will be above freezing this afternoon as rain exits from west to east.
Bottom Line: Mainly A Cold Rain – No Significant Impacts
The window for a mix is a small one and it will more likely the further north you are and at higher elevations. By this afternoon, the rain/wintry mix will be gone and everyone will have temperatures in the lower 40s.
