SATURDAY ESPECIALLY OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. SOME LIGHT SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS MAY OCCUR ESPECIALLY OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS ABOVE
2500 FEET.

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
