We’re headed southeast to the Smokey Mountains for today’s forecast. What will happen at the University of Tennessee over the next two days?
At 653PM, ET, Knoxville was reporting a temperature of 44 degrees with clear skies. They were between waves rotating around the area of circulation still hovering along the Labrador Coast. Flurries were beginning to show up on radar northeast of Crossville, though no sites were reporting any south of the Ohio River. There were winter weather advisories issued for the higher terrain surrounding eastern Tennessee, foretelling snow becoming able to reach the ground.
The deepest part of the trough will dig into eastern Tennessee by Sunday afternoon, bringing with it an increase in the snow shower activity through the evening. Aloft, the nose of a jet will push into the area by Monday morning, pushing out the last remnants of snow. It will be rather chilly on Monday, but a recovery in temperatures will be right around the corner.

That’s a pretty uniform forecast for one with snow showers. This is because this storm isn’t very dynamic this far south. It’s pretty easy to figure out what’s going on. Here is the radar, showing something emerging northeast from Crossville.
