  • ...Showers and thunderstorms producing small hail are expected late this afternoon and evening... ...Wintry-like conditions are expected across the higher elevations tonight and Thursday... A cold front will sweep across the area late this afternoon and evening producing likely chances of showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Due to the cold air aloft...a few of the storms will produce small hail...generally no larger than pea size. Besides the hail...strong and gusty winds and brief heavy rain can be anticipated which may effect the late afternoon and evening commute. The cold front will usher in unseasonably cold air into the region for tonight and Thursday. An upper level low pressure system will also move south across the area. Scattered showers will continue over the region. Temperatures will be cold enough across the highest elevations...generally at or above 4500 feet...for the rain to mix with or change to snow. Snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are possible. Areas most of risk of seeing snow accumulations will be across the highest elevations of the Smoky Mountains and Roane mountain. Anyone venturing across the higher elevations...such as hikers or persons traveling across Highway 441...should be prepared for wintry-like conditions. Please stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and other local media for further details and updates. 437 am EDT Wed may 4 2016 /337 am CDT Wed may 4 2016/ ...Showers and thunderstorms producing small hail are expected late this afternoon and evening... ...Wintry-like conditions are expected across the higher elevations tonight and Thursday...
