Winter Weather Advisory
Winter Weather Advisory

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Cumberland, Fentress, Pickett, Clay, Overton, Putnam, and White County.

The advisory goes into effect at 6 p.m. tonight (Monday, February 12, 2024) and is scheduled to expire at 6 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, February 13, 2024).

Wet snow is expected. Total snow accumulations of up to one inch, mainly north of Interstate 40. A few spots near the Kentucky border may have up to 2 inches of slushy snow. Wind gusts as high as 35 mph can be expected.

Drivers should plan on slippery road conditions, mainly on elevated surfaces.

There is a lot of uncertainty about snow amounts. If cold air moves in quickly, snow totals could increase above 2 inches for some spots north of I-40. But, since temperatures have been warm, much of the falling snow may melt resulting in little or no accumulation. Either way, any travel impacts are expected to be limited to elevated surfaces like bridges and overpasses.
