.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL BRING SOME RAIN TONIGHT...AND THE
RAIN MAY MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO SNOW AT TIMES LATER TONIGHT INTO EARLY
SATURDAY ESPECIALLY OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. SOME LIGHT SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS MAY OCCUR ESPECIALLY OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS ABOVE
2500 FEET.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

A STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE TENNESSEE VALLEY AND SOUTHERN
APPALACHIANS TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT. WARM AIR WILL
STREAM NORTH INTO THE SYSTEM KEEPING PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH
