Winter Blast Headed For Tennessee

Rain, Sleet, Snow

May Come Before




Holiday travelers be advised: Weather will be messy this Thanksgiving week.

The National Weather Service forecasts freezing rain tonight, heavy rain Tuesday, snow on Wednesday and high temperatures in the upper-30s Thanksgiving Day for Greeneville, as a major winter storm moves toward the East Coast.

"It looks like a pretty strong storm system moving through the area this week," said Andrew Pritchett, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service (NWS) in Morristown.

"It will be a hassle for us, coming at one of the biggest travel days of the year."

The advancing weather front prompted NWS to issue a special weather statement for northeast Tennessee. The statement is in effect from Tuesday night through Wednesday.

The approaching storm is the same one that dumped snow and ice on the Southwest, claiming at least eight lives, NWS and the Associated Press report.

Heavy rain is projected to pound much of the South on Tuesday, hitting the Carolinas by Tuesday evening, according to NWS.

Snow may begin falling in the Appalachians, and areas in the higher elevations south of Greeneville, late Tuesday night, Pritchett said.

"The foothills and valley could see up to an inch," he said. "But there are still some uncertainties with this storm."

Low temperatures will dip below freezing this week, NWS forecasts, with a low of 27 Tuesday, 17 Wednesday and 23 Thursday.

"We are asking people to stay tuned to us and remain vigilant if you plan to travel this week, especially if you are traveling North or East," Pritchett said.
