Across the highest elevations the rain will mix with or change to
snow. Light snow accumulations are expected, mainly at elevations
above 4000 feet. The Smoky and Roane Mountains could receive
between 1 and 2 inches over the highest terrain. Highway 441
across the Smoky Mountains may become snow and ice covered late
today and overnight.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and other local media for
