Snow Will Melt Today, But More Coming

Is that a tree atop the Walters State construction site in downtown Greeneville? Yes, right next to the American flag. Construction workers restarted their work on the Walters State Community College complex in downtown Greeneville, after stopping a couple of days for heavy snow and ice last week. The last steel beam of the main frame of complex was installed a couple of weeks ago. Walters State announced the $20 million expansion in August 2011, and work began in April 2013.

Much of the leftover snow from Winter Storm Pax will melt away today.

But more snow is on the way.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a winter weather advisory from 7 p.m. today through 10 a.m. Saturday for Greene County.

"A lot of the snow will melt today, and then we will get this new batch tonight," said Terry Getz, a meterologist with NWS in Morristown.

"Greene County could pick up two inches, probably closer to four inches in the higher elevations near the North Carolina border."

Today's forecast high temperature is 48 degrees. Rain is expected to begin around 7 p.m. today before changing over to snow near midnight, Getz said.

Road conditions across Greene County had improved by this morning, County Highway Department Supervisor Junior Carter said. But a few slick spots remained.

"Everything over toward Greystone still has a lot of ice on it," Carter said. "Viking Mountain, places like that, still have a lot of snow and ice."

Areas near Baileyton and Mosheim were "pretty decent" this morning, Carter said.

"I've got everybody concentrating over near the mountain," he said.

Streets in the Town of Greeneville were in "fair to poor" condition this morning, Public Works Director Brad Peters said.

"All of the roads that I've been on have been slick," he stated. "But it's supposed to be warmer today, so hopefully sunshine and salt will take care of it."

Winter Storm Pax dumped between 5 and 7 inches on Greene County on Wednesday and Thursday. It has snowed more than 6 inches at a time in Greene County only three times since 1990, NWS data show.
