...A DUSTING OF LIGHT SNOW ACCUMULATION POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT...

TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO TUMBLE AS COLD AIR MOVED INTO THE REGION

A DUSTING TO NEAR 1 INCH OF SNOW ACCUMULATION IS POSSIBLE...MAINLY
OVER NORTHERN PARTS OF THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU AND HIGHER ELEVATIONS
OF SOUTHWESTERN VIRGINIA.

A DUSTING TO LESS THAN 1/2 OF AN INCH OF SNOW COULD ACCUMULATE IN
A FEW SPOTS ACROSS THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL VALLEY COUNTIES OF EAST
TENNESSEE...AS WELL AS CHEROKEE AND CLAY COUNTIES OF NORTH
CAROLINA.

A DUSTING OF SNOW IS POSSIBLE AS FAR SOUTH AS CHATTANOOGA...ALTHOUGH
ACCUMULATIONS SHOULD REMAIN VERY LIGHT AND BE MOSTLY CONFINED TO
GRASSY AND ELEVATED SURFACES.

WHILE ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE MINOR...SOME TRAVEL HAZARDS MAY OCCUR.
TRAVELERS MAY ENCOUNTER SOME SLICK SPOTS IN THESE AREAS. CAUTION
IS ADVISED...ESPECIALLY FOR BACK ROADS...BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES.
