The National Weather Service is predicting snow showers throughout Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia on Tuesday and cold temperatures for a couple days afterward.
Monday in Bristol is expected to be cloudy during the day with a high of 62 degrees, with the temperature falling to 32 degrees overnight. There is also a high chance of showers starting after 10 p.m.
Tim Doyle, a meteorologist with the NWS, said the showers are expected to turn into snow showers sometime Tuesday morning and should end in the early afternoon.
Snow accumulation in the Tri-Cities is only expected to be around three tenths of an inch, Doyle said, but higher altitude areas — such as Wise County and Roan Mountain — could see 1 to 2 inches of snow.
The temperature Tuesday in Bristol will reach its peak — 34 degrees — in the morning and begin to fall in the afternoon. The low is expected to drop into the teens, and Doyle said the wind chill will make the temperature feel like it’s in the single digits.
Wednesday is expected to be mostly sunny and slightly warmer at 39 degrees during the day and drop to around 24 degrees overnight. Thursday is only expected to be slightly sunny but will be warmer with temperatures in the mid 40s and lows in the high 20s.
