This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest North
Carolina...east Tennessee and southwest Virginia.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Periods of rain showers will begin changing over to snow showers
this afternoon over some of the higher elevations of the Plateau,
southwest Virginia, and the east Tennessee mountains, and then
will transition to all snow showers tonight even in valley areas.
Light snow accumulations of up to an inch will be possible across
portions of the northern Plateau, northeast Tennessee, and
southwest Virginia by late tonight with the up to 2 inches over
the higher elevations of Southwest Virginia. Snow accumulation of
1 to 5 inches will be possible over the mountains of East
Tennessee, mainly at elevations above 2500 feet.

Another chance for higher terrain snowfall will occur on Friday

border and over northern sections of the Cumberland Plateau could
pick up another 1 to 2 inches of snow with locally higher amounts
in the highest reaches of the Smokys. Valley locations across
Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee may see a dusting with
the event.
