Winter storm warning issued for expected Monday snow

This system has been hard to track, so snow totals are still preliminary but a Winter Storm Watch has been issued for parts of SW Virginia and along the TN/NC mountains extending through Monday afternoon.

Snow will decrease in intensity throughout the day on Monday across the East Tennessee mountains and Southwest Virginia.

The high Monday is about 40 degrees, with the low Monday night about 30.

A chance of snow is possible before 2 p.m., according to NWS, though no "significant winter storm" is expected. "It is possible that we see 6-12" (or more) of snow with this storm.

The storm will arrive Monday evening with light snow initially, but the steadier and heavier snow will arrive Tuesday morning, tapering off Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be breezy, chilly days for March with some snow showers possible, but still will get above freezing with periods of sunshine each day. As this low tracks through, precipitation will begin as scattered rain showers.
