ALSO MOVE SOUTH ACROSS THE AREA. SCATTERED SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE
OVER THE REGION. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COLD ENOUGH ACROSS THE
HIGHEST ELEVATIONS...GENERALLY AT OR ABOVE 4500 FEET...FOR THE RAIN
TO MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO SNOW. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES
ARE POSSIBLE.

AREAS MOST OF RISK OF SEEING SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE ACROSS THE
HIGHEST ELEVATIONS OF THE SMOKY MOUNTAINS AND ROANE MOUNTAIN.
