KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The WATE 6 Storm Team is expecting lingering light snow showers overnight.

The bulk of the snow will be over around or before midnight. A few isolated locations will see flurries through sunrise, but most areas won’t see any additional accumulation overnight. In higher elevations of the Plateau and Smokies, we could see the snowfall totals increase.

One other key aspect to the forecast will be whether or not the roads are dry before the temperatures drops below freezing. Regardless overpasses and bridges will be the most likely roadways to have slick spots.


The forecast for the valley continues to look fairly dry with minimal impacts. Temperatures will be too warm during daylight hours to support snow accumulation, but after sunset neighborhoods in the valley could receive a dusting to 1″ at the MOST.

With that said, the snow will not stick everywhere. The highest snowfall totals will be in the Smokies above 3,000ft. If you are worried about travel impacts, the best opportunity to have slick spots on the roads will be late Sunday night into Monday morning.
