Another Harsh Wintry System

Forecast For Early Next Week



Temperatures aren't expected to get above freezing until Saturday, following a bone-chilling start to the day.

Snow dusted parts of the county overnight, producing slick spots on some area roads.

Mark Nagi, Tennessee Department of Transportation spokesman, tweeted about 7:30 a.m. Friday that there were "still some slick spots on East Tennessee roadways this morning, especially in higher elevations."

Warmer temperatures will return for the weekend, with highs near 50 on Saturday and Sunday.

But keep the heavy coat handy. Frigid temperatures will invade Greene County early next week.

"Another strong cold front will come through the area," said National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologist Derek Eisentrout.

"It looks very similar to what we had yesterday."

NWS forecasts a temperature high of 20 on Monday and 18 on Tuesday, with lows both days in the single digits.

"With already some cold air in place, temperatures will be in the low digits on Tuesday morning," Eisentrout said.

Tuesday's record low is 5, set in 1970. Eisentrout said that record is in danger of being broken.

Today's temperature high is expected to be 26, with a low of 13. The county was under a winter weather advisory from Thursday evening through 7 a.m. today.
