Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Morristown TN
834 PM EST Sat Dec 3 2016

.DISCUSSION...Isentropic lift is producing areas of light rain
across the southern half of the Tennessee Valley into southwest
North Carolina. The light precipitation will continue to spread
northeast overnight. Looking at the forecast soundings across the
higher terrain...and current conditions at NewFound Gap of 37
degrees and dewpoint of 23...expect a mixture of snow/sleet across
the higher elevations. This mixture generally at or above 4000
feet. Places like the Smoky Mountains...Roane Mountain...and High
Knob could see a coating of light snow.

Since rain is spreading northeast a little faster than
expected...have up the time of getting light precipitation this
evening.

Made some minor changes to going forecast lows for tonight.

Will continue wind advisory for the Smoky Mountains for Sunday.
