Another storm system will move across the Southern Appalachian

and unstable air into the Tennessee Valley. A line of thunderstorms
will develop and move into southeast Tennessee. Some of these
storms could become severe with the main threat being tornadoes,
damaging winds, and hail. There is a potential of a significant
outbreak of severe storms late Monday across the southern Plateau
and southeast Tennessee.

Besides the potential severe storms, the strong low-level winds
will produce a Mountain Wave High Wind event across the Mountains
and Adjacent Foothills Monday afternoon and evening.

For Tuesday Night through Wednesday Night, cold air will move back
into the southern Appalachians with the rain changing to snow
showers across the higher elevations, generally above 3000 feet.
Snow accumulations are possible across the higher elevations, such
as the Smoky Mountains and High Knob, Virginia.
