Winter Weather Advisory

The NWS has now issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Cumberland Plateau for tonight and Monday. The advisory goes into effect at midnight and expires at 6:00 pm Monday. The NWS is now on board with forecasting one to two inches of snow. The higher amounts with these scenarios tends to be on the higher elevations of the western edge of the plateau. Monterey usually gets hit hardest with these situations. Please keep that in mind if you must travel I-40 through Putnam County in the  morning.

Also, keep in mind that these systems tend to over-perform. While 1-2 inches is the most likely scenario, higher amounts are not out of the question. If temps are slow to fall to freezing, amounts will be lighter and closer to a dusting.

The counties shaded in blue are under winter wx advisories. The counties shaded in red over in the Smokies are under winter storm warnings for 5-9 inches of snow. I’ll be watching it all!
