Aside from ongoing Northwest flow snow showers across the higher
elevations and areas along the Tennessee border, latest radar
imagery shows that moisture has pushed over the mountain peaks and
is allowing for snow flurries/light snow to fall across the
northern mountains and into some areas across the northern
foothills at this time. Given temperatures in the mid to upper 30s
to around 40 degrees, accumulation aside from a possible brief
dusting on grassy areas is not anticipated. A few slick spots may
develop on roadways, especially bridges and overpasses, and
motorists should use caution.

Winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph are expected
through the overnight hours at elevations above 3500 ft. This
along with brief snow showers could temporarily reduce visibility.
Motorists should exercise caution while driving.
